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.

    Superb

    Really good place to stay. Even the big dorms had a sense of privacy due to the way the bunks are arranged. Very useful to have charging ports in the locker as well, nice touch. Location is good being a very short walk from 103st/broadway subway stop. Normal security for a HI hostel with key access to the building and internal doors. Good size lockers in the room. Price vs a cheap hotel is still competitive so well worth it.

    The hostel is clean, ideally located, reasonably priced for NYC and the cafe was very convenient. However the check in process was a shambles. Took over 90 minutes to check in. Staff were trying but it was an absolute cluster.

    Excellent hostel, but really need to improve check-in process. I waited almost 40 minutes to check-in. Also, the room was chilly, and it wasn't clear where the kitchen was. Also, no privacy curtain. I don't like leaving negative reviews because I firmly believe in HI's mission. I'm a life member. Improve these points, and my opinion will be improved even more.

    The queue to check in was very long. The staff seemed stressed and abrupt. The air purifier in the room was so loud that I couldn't sleep, and it made the room easy too cold. I paid a lot of money to stay there, but what was the point when I couldn't sleep properly.
