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.

    Had a wonderful stay. Facilities we're clean, staff was friendly, and I felt very safe as a solo female traveler. It was also so close to central park and museums, will be definitely coming back next time I'm in NYC:)

    The best hostel stay I've had in NYC. More resources that I am used to, including kitchen tools / spacious lockers/ soap in showers/ good wifi etc. My space felt clean and comfortable. Really appreciate being able to leave my bag in a locker for 24 hours post check out. Note for travelers unfamiliar with the NYC Subway - I used the 1 train to return to the hostel at about 11 pm on a Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. This felt surprisingly safe to do as a solo female traveler!

    Good location for the price, just a block away from a metro station and walking distance from Central Park! It’s always clean but the only thing is the kitchen is not properly equipped, maybe because of covid but more utensils would be nice to be able to cook. Other than that everything was great! Would recommend!

    Nice sturdy bunk beds that don't shake. Big kitchen. Many nice common areas to hang out in. Seems to be perfect in almost everything. I just did not like the fact that most of the people staying at the hostel are just there for temporary accommodation, this makes the hostel quite "non-touristy" in my opinion, making meeting other travellers harder as a solo-traveller.

    One main recommendation (heads up for solo travelers) - I have stayed at a few hostels this year even with COVID (New Orleans, Maui and Oahu). They all still have group activities or pre games so you get to meet people and go out with them. There are no planned activities so way less social then I’m use to - nice place but would not stay again! Also, this hostel seems more mixed aged. More people over 40 than 22 -32 so something to consider! It was a clean hostel and great location!

    Nice and clean beds. Bathroom was impeccable. The hostel is a little far from the center of Manhattan, but you get get there by metro, which is just a few minutes away. Very serious staff. Not the best hostel to socialize, but perfect for overnight stays.
