Property Description

******** VACCINATION REQUIREMENTS ********
We take Covid seriously and hope you do too. All guests occupying our shared dorm rooms will be required to show proof of full vaccination upon check in. Acceptable proof of vaccination is a CDC issued vaccination card or any document (electronic or paper) issued by a national health authority in your country of residence. Guests who have booked a bed in a shared dormitory and who are not vaccinated upon arrival may upgrade to a private room at their own expense or will be subject to the standard cancellation penalty of one night charge.
***************************************************

The Local has great guest rooms - all of the rooms have en suite bathrooms, linens and towels, 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.

And on top of it all, The Local's amazing staff will ensure that you have the most memorable stay in NYC. 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. And above all, they'll do anything they can to make sure you are comfortable at the hostel. If you need anything, just ask. After all, that's what friends are for.

    Travelled with mum and 2 teenaged daughters. This place has it all. Rooms have comfy beds and spacious lockers for all your stuff. Showers in rooms are lovely - a little on the small side, but hey, you are in NYC! Location amazing. Very easy access to a Manhattan by a range of subway lines. Downstairs vibe is excellent. I can’t think of anywhere better to stay in NYC.

    Location is amazing. Only a block to the subway with the E line taking you directly into the city. The views from the rooftop are stunning. The atmosphere is cool and staff are really friendly. Loved my stay here.

    Nice and comfortable hostel with an amazing rooftop. 4 bed room with shower and toilet. 3 min walk from the subway. 12min to Manhattan in total. Helpful staff. I would recommend. The only problem is the price (but this applies to all NYC)

    The staff were amazing and the location is perfect! The rooftop is a great vibe, even if there isn’t an event on, it’s great to sit up there with some mates. Just fyi, they don’t have a lift if you are travelling heavy :/ but 10/10!

    I had a great stay! Event though there was an unconvenience during my first night (somebody came into our room, puked over the whole floor), they were able to move me into a different room during that night, which was really willing to be of service of them! After that I felt safe, the whole atmosphere was calm and fashion. I loved the roof terrace, you have a great view over the city when going up there. Staffs are very nice and friendly! I could even store my suitcase on the day of leaving.

    Great hostel! Would return again 100%. Close to a subway stop and got loads of small shops and cafes around it. The staff are great and the bar underneath had great vibes. The rooms are so clean and secure with large lock boxes that can fit a backpack and a carryon in

    The hostel is in a fantastic location, easily accessible by the subway and easy to get into Manhattan. Rooms were clean and comfortable. View from the rooftop is amazing, enjoyed spending my evenings looking over the city. Hostel is expensive for a hostel, but reasonable for NYC. Kitchen is below standard, which is annoying because NYC is so expensive for food. Booked two beds months in advance but on arrival was told our beds would be in separate dorms. Staff were not the greatest.
