The Local has great guest rooms - all of the rooms have ensuite bathrooms, luxury linens and towels included, reading lights, bed dividers, large windows and locked storage space. Even better is the common space- a roof terrace to relax and take in the sunset over NYC's breathtaking skyline, a computer lounge to get some work done, book future travel or catch up with people back home, an event space where we show movies, display local art work, and host other events, a bar to grab a gourmet snack, coffee, local beer or signature cocktail and meet other guests and neighbors.

They'll help you plan your day packing it full of the standards NYC attractions as well as unique local experiences that you won't find in your guidebook. They'll plan events at the hostel to help you meet fellow travelers - live concerts, standup comedy, movie nights, trivia, wine/beer tastings.

    Great hostel just a subway ride away from Manhattan. I enjoyed the free beer and the bar! There are alot of young people to meet and it's got a great common area for meeting people. Friendly staff and really nice having only 4 to a bathroom.

    Great hostel, friendly staff and good location. A bit pricey but I guess that’s expected in New York. Location is good and close to a subway that runs to Brooklyn and Manhattan. Would definitely stay again.

    Very Good

    Standard modern hostel ran by staff of hipsters. The bar is good, the rooftop terrace offers great views, the cleaning staff are really friendly. The air con unit in the room sounded like a car idling next to the bed all night and eventually made me sick. I guess I could have asked to be moved earlier though which I didn't so can't hold this entirely against them but it'd be worth them looking in to, and I obviously can't say whether or not it's a problem in every room or just the one I was in.
