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.

    Best hostel I've stayed at in NYC by far. Rooms are simple and clean. There are plenty of common areas to congregate, and the facilities are vast for an NYC hostel. The location is nice as it is in the Upper West Side, so you get the feel of an NYC neighborhood, yet the hostel is a block away from the 1 so it is an easy commute down to the heart of the city. I will definitely stay here again when back in town.

    The location of the hotel was great and had fab facilities and areas you could mix with other travellers but unfortunately the day we arrived there was no air conditioning and didn’t seem to get better fully. Then a couple days later we had no hot water! Not the workers fault but just didn’t help the situation.

    The staff are incredibly friendly and the hostel is conveniently located. I think in part due to the size, there were times when common facilities like the bathroom, kitchen, and laundry room weren’t especially clean. However, the housekeeping staff were lovely and efficient.

    When you're paying over $60 plus for a 10 bed dorm in the supposedly "best hostel in NYC" you don't expect you have to wait 30 minutes in line to check in. And later find out there is no hot water. For the showers! Hot water is part of the deal with any accommodation,, so If you aren't able to provide it, no matter whether it's your establishment fault or some other entity you want to blame you should discount the stay for those days you can't provide what we are paying for!!! Shame on AiYh

    Very Good

    25 Jul 2022
    Was super spacious and plenty of room in common area. Great locker space and the beds were comfortable. Courtyard was super vibrant and kitchen was huge. The aircon didn’t work my entire stay so expect to be sleeping in 86 degrees! I asked to move rooms and it did not make a difference. The hot water system was down during my stay which meant I also had cold showers for 3 days. Laundry was also closed for that time too.

    Decent hostel near a metro station - but didn’t feel very social and the staff didn’t have good recommendations either.
