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.

    It was my first experience in a Hostel, and I was positively surprised. The Hostel had an amazing location, pretty close to the 103rd subway station, safe and clean. I strongly recommend and I have no doubt I am coming back in my first opportunity.

    Well located just a minute walk from 103 street station with the (1) line which gets you to most main areas of NYC. Deluxe dorm was big enough with decent sized locker which could be secured. Toilets and showers are in separate room which is better overall. There’s a big social area and shops nearby. Downsides are that the lift is a bit slow to the top floors and in my room there were small ‘walkway’ lights which were constantly on and couldn’t be turned off which was a bit disturbing for sleep.

    This was probably the most comfortable hostel I have ever stayed in. Rooms and bathrooms were spacious and spotless, beds were comfortable, and everything was quiet and felt secure. There wasn't much socialization going on, at least not that I saw, but that wasn't a problem for me. The location is good, just about a block from the subway.

    They are only missing a bar. The weather in NYC is really bad during the end of fall and winter so it's difficult to be out and about some days. Also since the city is not too busy during weekdays there's really nothing to do when it comes to nightlife so I think they really need to get an alcohol license and a bar.

    The vibe in this hostel is definitely one of the best ones in the US. Bug public spaces make the perfect place for starting a conversation and meeting people. People were very social, willing to grab a drink with you easily, or help you cook. I made amazing friends, from all over the world. The rooms are nice, clean sheets, and spacious rooms with air purifiers. The front desk was atentive and they put on activities to partake in. Overall, for the social aspect, I would highly recommend HI NYC

    Good

    Location is good. Facilities are ok. The four-bed rooms are spacious and clean. The check-in experience is terrible, it takes forever and usually there’s only one person in the reception. If you need any help with anything, you’ll be frustrated. I needed to print one single page, the printer wasn’t working and no one was willing to help me. I had to go to a Staples instead. Anyway, not the best experience but overall it was a decent stay.

    Hostel was dirty and kinda smelly. I’ve stayed at much nicer hostels for cheaper. Staff was nice but took really long to check people in and they charge a $4 a day fee for not being a member which was not on the website and no other HI hostel I’ve stayed at does that. Locker was disgusting and didn’t really feel like leaving my stuff in there. Location was not too bad tho it was close to Columbia U, Central Park, and a subway station.

    Pros: Location not bad in upper west side Manhattan. 7/8 min walk from upper west Central Park, or 2 min walk from 103rd street on the number 1 subway line. Lockers for your stuff, secure rooms, sensible policy (in NYC) of no males without females on the booking in mixed dorms. Cons: biggest hostel I’ve stayed in by far but only two exceptionally slow people on reception. Check in took OVER 1 and a half hours! Insane. Absolutely zero atmosphere. No curtains or luxuries at all. Very Overpriced
