Property Description

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.

Probably the best hostel I have stayed in. There is a hostel in the tenderloin in SF that is really nice but the area is not as nice. It was a great time and though a little pricey it was a good time.
