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.

Property Description

An affordable and always inviting welcome to the greatest city in the world!

Located in a historic castle-like building minutes from Central Park and Times Square, Hostelling International-New York provides unmatched value in accommodations and facilities catering to individual and group travelers seeking the best communal stay experience in New York City.

HI New York's modern amenities include more than two floors of common room space for socializing, five banquet rooms for meetings and events and a 36-burner kitchen available for guest use, and of course free wifi. We also house Manhattan's largest private outdoor patio, available for impromptu soccer games or trainings and orientations.

Our 24-hour Welcome and Information desk is always there to help with any questions. In addition, guests can get information on what to visit in the city and how to get there safely and securely. Or if this is your first time visiting New York, our daily guided tours and activities provide a friendly and accessible introduction to everything New York has to offer, from gospel concerts in Harlem to naked cowboys in Times Square!

From New Year’s Eve through the summer to Thanksgiving and Christmas we have all special events covered. Not to mention free activities every night. After mingling with other hostlers, a tour lead group embarks on a pub crawl around NYC. If you can’t make the pub crawl then you can join our nightclubbing events on Friday and Saturday nights. Four to five nights a week we have comedy, improv, and variety shows in the theater room at our hostel. If that’s not enough, you can take Jerry’s Grand Tour, a 12+ hour tour of NYC, on Saturdays from 10am and Tuesdays at 11am. Finally, our volunteer-led outings to the Macy’s firework show July 4th, Greenwich Village Halloween Parade, and Times Square on New Year’s Eve to watch the ball drop have been a great tour tradition at Hostelling International for year!. To sign up for these and many other tours and activities, visit our information desk.

After a full day of exploring New York, spend your evenings socializing at our outdoor patio in Manhattan's largest privately owned Green space. If you have seen the entire city and want to stay in, our large, cozy in-house theater offers a perfect opportunity to rest up and reinvigorate for the coming days. Our free billiards table and great common spaces are great spots to meet fellow hostellers while spending time relaxing. The lounge and game rooms are open 24/7.

We have a huge common kitchen and newly renovated bathrooms and showers, with free linen and towels. Each room has individual heat/air conditioning. You can use private lockers just bring your own lock. There’s an also on-site coin-operated laundry facility, snacks and drinks available 24/7, free Wi-Fi and an Internet room with public computers.

Hostelling International New York is a 501c3 private organization geared toward creating educational opportunities; therefore we do not except local NYC residents as overnight guests.

    I was there for one night, so for a short experience I had no troubles. The only thing that bothered me a little bit was the smell in the room, not strong but unpleasant. Anyhow, the hostel offers a lot and it is great located.

    Fabulous

    10 Oct 2018
    Stayed in a 12p room. The room was nice and clean. Bed was decent and enough possibilities to charge devices. Lockers were big enough to fit all my stuff and I found the outlet in the locker very useful. Unfortunately the room could smell very bad and was really hot. We only had 2 windows of which one was stuck, so we could only open one window for about 10cm, which was clearly not enough to get some fresh air in a room with 12 men sleeping in it. Also the AC was extremely loud.
