Hostelworld says

Hostelling International New York has been praised by many of our visitors for their sociable atmosphere. Our guests say their staff are 'very helpful and welcoming', they have 'good communal areas to mingle' in and 'they offer a lot of extra activities (tours, trips) which are value-for-money'. There's two metro stations within two blocks, connecting directly to the Lincoln Centre, Times Square, Penn Station, Brooklyn and Soho. We like their large sunken patio - a rare space to stretch out in Manhattan.

Overview

Looking for a friendly, fun and fantastic hostel? Come and stay at HI NYC Hostel! We're not only set within a spectacular historic castle-like building, but we've also got a huge common room, a billiards room and even a theatre! We're located within easy reach of Times Square and Central Park, so you'll have the city on your doorstep. Cook up a storm in our 36-burner kitchen or catch an improv or comedy show in the theatre – there's something on most nights. We've also got the biggest private outdoor patio in Manhattan.

Location

Nestled in the leafy streets of the Upper West Side, our hostel is a snug, affordable base. There’s a ton of culture up here, thanks to the American Museum of Natural History and the Lincoln Center. Catch a show on Broadway (seven stops on subway line one) or spend a sunny afternoon with the locals in Central Park. When you’re ready to head out, take the subway at 103 St Station (a seven-minute walk away) for the A, B and C lines to Midtown and Tribeca.

Rooms and Dorms

All our rooms are either mixed or single-sex dorms that have been recently renovated, so they're cosy and comfy. They’re heated or air conditioned depending on the season, with free linen and towels on each bed (ideal if you’re travelling light). You can secure your valuables and luggage in our handy lockers – just remember to bring your own lock.

Extras and activities

Our reception's open 24/7, so you can stay out as late as you want in the city that never sleeps. And we love to socialise too! As well as free activities every night, you can join our regular festivities – we'll celebrate everything from July 4th to NYE. First time in New York? We'll take you out on a pub crawl around the city. If you love to dance, we go clubbing on Friday and Saturday nights. If you're here for a while we've got public computers for staying in touch and a laundry service.

    1 block from 103 subway. Central location. Very friendly and informative front-desk. David was awesome and helpful! I've stayed in hostels abroad, this was my first US stay. I'm pleased to say the youthful, travaleer energy was still present! My friend and I upgraded to a private room and it felt like a gorgeous, hip hotel. Strong AC, pristine cleanliness and the surprise of a mini fridge in the room was nice. We didn't get the chance to check out the rooftop, but I plan to be back. Thanks HINYC

    Nice clean place close to the subway, feels very safe and has nice facilities, a bit of a long check in process and consider an extra 4dls per night if you don’t have a hostel membership. Over all a good experience, would stay again!

    Fabulous

    Muy grata experiencia en este hostel. Muy buena ubicación a una cuadra del metro en una zona tranquila y comercial de Uptown Manhattan. Algunas facilidades y las salidas en grupos estaban restrigidas por el tema del covid pero era entendible. Mi única observación es que el acceso a computadora dentro del hostal tiene un costo fijo de $10 (además del consumo) por sesión, lo cual me pareció muy alto. Por lo demás una gran opción de hospedaje económico.

    La limpieza del hostel es muy buena y tiene unos muy buenos planes de bioseguridad, pero le hace falta ese aire de hostel donde puedes conectarse con otros viajeros... la cocina es solo para calentar con microondas, no vas a encontrar utensilios de cocina o algo similar.

    clean and good location in Manhattan. Staff was so so, better book online than extending there, they charge you more. My key card did not work - they tried to fix it for 3 times. Kitchen during covid is not usable because it has basically not even a pot to use only a fridge. Absolutely no hostel atmosphere!

    After I made the reservation, I tried contacting the hostel by phone AND email for two weeks before my trip so I could confirm my booking was correct and there would not be any problems. To sum things, once I arrived they forced me to pay double the price I had reserved online, and when I explained that I had been trying to contact them for weeks the worker did not show any signs of empathy and continued to overcharge me. I checked out a day early because I was so upset with the experience.

    I stayed in July 2021, I booked a bed in a shared dorm for the first time since covid and I was expecting some kind of safety measures from the hostel but to my surprise there were none. I have the privilege of being vaccinated since early April and overall healthy, and I was hoping they would ask a proof of vaccination or at least a negative PCR result to the guests, specially in shared dorms but that never happened. I shared the room with other 5 people, none were vaccinated.Very dissapointed!
