Cleanliness, Facility, Cafe

This hostel is a real gem. I was surprised by the cleanliness of my room, I stayed in a economy room with 12 beds. Shower facilities were recently upgraded so it was really clean and spacious. The staff were really accommodating, I arrived at 8am and they told me my bed was not ready so they gave me a card and towel for me to shower. I would definitely stay here for my next trip to New York.

Repeated visit to HI New York”

This was my second time staying at HI New York. Would highly recommend it to solo travelers looking for an affordable yet comfortable place to stay. Location is farther away from touristy locations like Times Square but it's conveniently located near a subway station. 5 min walk to Central Park! Clean and nice for a hostel.

Strange Hostel there was unexpected money charge USD6 as I wasn't a member”

When I first checked in at the lobby and the staff asked for USD 6 charge because I wasn't a member. I was disappointed about this hidden charge that they didn't mention in Agoda at all. The hostel name in front is American Youth Hostel not Hostelling International New York which made me confused when I arrived by Uber car. The hostel location is near to subway only walk about 5 minutes. The bathroom & toilet are outside. There is only 1 elevator.

I use this hostel whenever I'm in NY. It is close to the station, has kitchens, all staffs are hardworking to keep the place clean no matter how ppl create mess... (only problem was a guy asked me to move away from kitchen, even if I was there first and hurry to eat because of appointments. It was rude. Anyway.). The front desk staffs are always helpful, and the manager gave me immediate help I needed. If you are new to NY, they have many hostel events just like other hostel. I would recommend this hostel to others.

five star hostel!”

This hostel is amazing. I got a 4 bed female dorm for a discount rate- such a great price for the experience. The staff was really welcoming and attentive. Every detail was taken care of with efficiency and warmth. I was happy from the first minute I entered the hostel. In my ~ 10 years of travel, this hostel is one of the cleanest-cleaner than any 4 star hotels in the US. Their bathroom was so clean that even the concrete filling the gaps between wall tiles in the shower look like they are newly constructed -not a speckle of mold can be seen. Any corner of the bathroom looks new. It's amazing how it could be maintained so well. The bedroom is way more spacious & comfy , compared to another hostel I'd stayed in NYC. There is a curtain for each bunk bed, for privacy and can block unwanted light. The pillow and mattress is more solid, comfy, and clean than most four star US hotels too. I will only choose here for future visits in NYC!

Nice hostel”

This Hostel was simple to find, it was nice to be able to check in late, since my plane arrived late in the evening. Staff was super nice, they even gave me new earplugs so I could sleep better with all the New York noises! Bathroom was ok, Toilets were clean, but still no sanitizer anyways. Shower hat no pressure at all so it took me nearly half an hour instead of 5 Minutes to shower. The kitchen was ok, there were many stoves so people could cook at the same time! For people without demands this Hostel is highly recommended by me!

Exceptional”

The location of this property was excellent. The hostel offered many, varied social events and an in-house snack/light food bar. Everything was reasonably priced. If I had time, I would have taken some walking tours or a pub crawl. Communal kitchen downstairs. My 10-person dorm was very comfy and I slept well in the top bunk. Locker/bathroom/joint social space was appropriate. The hostel has nice, private outdoor patios, courtyards which in the summer would have been nice! Staff were uber friendly. With hundreds of guests, a fridge in the guest bunk would have been nice. I had a couple of food gifts that I wanted to keep close instead of in joint space in the basement kitchen. It was a strange situation to have that with me, but I decided to keep the package near the open window in my room, which was cool enough. The 1 train is a 1 block walk up 103 (don't take 104) to Amsterdam, so I felt safe. I would definitely go back to this property and would recommend that you try it out!

A nice hostel on the Upper West Side”

This hostel is a value for money for those who want to stay in Manhattan. It is very close to 103rd street Subway station and also walkable to Central Park. The bathroom is clean but the only down thing is the hairdryer working too slow haha. There is a shop selling breakfast and coffee downstairs. Laundry is available at 2nd floor. They have a surprisingly big common room/kitchen at basement, also a locker if you want to store your luggage for $5. There is also Whole Foods around the hostel (0.3 miles away). Overall, this hostel is very nice if you want to stay within Manhattan but not wanting to spend more money to stay at a hotel.

Almost not there”

I was surprised that they almost cancelled my reservation because i could have been one or two hours late. That policy is wrong. They should charge all the days we reserve before ans thats it. The hostel was not full. It gives me a second thought nect time i will.go. They made me sleep one day in one room and then i was moved to other. In new york time is precious. It is bwcoming.expensive for cheap travellers. I uses to go when it was only 50 dollars and now it is 83. The bee staff is very nice. Except thw lady at night at the bristol. Good thing the new system for the key of the doors. We need another elevator. It is too slow and workers with those big cars are annoying.

A nice hostel on the Upper West Side”

This hostel is a value for money for those who want to stay in Manhattan. It is very close to 103rd street Subway station and also walkable to Central Park. The bathroom is clean but the only down thing is the hairdryer working too slow haha. There is a shop selling breakfast and coffee downstairs. Laundry is available at 2nd floor. They have a surprisingly big common room/kitchen at basement, also a locker if you want to store your luggage for $5. There is also Whole Foods around the hostel (0.3 miles away). Overall, this hostel is very nice if you want to stay within Manhattan but not wanting to spend more money to stay at a hotel.

Clean. Nice location. Cheap.”

Clean Nicely equipped kitchen Friendly and helpful staff. Located in upper west so it is safe and quiet. Market near that location is expensive for a budget traveller(namely wholefood) Just 3 mins from metro station. But during certain time trains dont run local so you will need to walk from another station for 8 mins. Overall a decent stay

Good place to stay in NYC”

I’ve been staying 4 nights at the hostel and everything was great. Staff is super nice, there are many options to relax and they have a very nice bar with sandwiches and food all day for fair prices. You can easily meet people and they offer a lot of tours aswell which brings people together. The bathroom could have been a bit cleaner but all in all was fine especially in nyc it’s hard to find a good hostel. It’s a little of a ride to midtown but subway is just around the corner running 24/7 so it’s very handy. I would defenetly stay again! Thank you:)

Great location, great facilities, friendly staff”

Overall, I would say this hostel is great value for money, great for solo travellers and I will definitely stay here again! Location: very close to the 103 st subway station, only a 10 min walk to reach Central Park. But at night it maybe a bit sketchy to be walking back alone Facilities: The place looks amazing inside and out! Got a place downstairs that sell food and drinks, free charging station, beds and lockers (bring your own lock!) I know they have said the locker was "One Time Only" (in the luggage storage room), but it would be great if the lockers there can be reopened more than once! Staff: the staff there are very friendly and helpful. They organise tons of activities for people to join e.g. Free tours, global welcoming party, great for people to meet travel buddies! Cleanliness: I am a huge germaphobe, and I am super worried about bed bugs before going to NYC. This place is pretty clean in my opinion, frankly the best I can find at this price.

Best experience I had in a hostel. Hostel was very good in a good location 3 mins walk to subway”

Best experience I had in a hostel. Hostel was very good in a good location 3 mins walk to subway, staff was ok some was kindda busy and dont give you enough time. Rooms were perfect. I stayed in 12beds dormitory and the guy in the bed above me was snoring crazy so I asked for changing the room and the staff help me do that without any delay. Backyard is so beautiful and kitchen is very equipped and clean. Best thing about the hostel the tours they provide you get to know plenty of people and this is very useful especially when you flying solo as I was.
