    Not suitable for the people with sensitive noses”
    The cleanness was all right but there was a strong sweaty smell inside the room near the door. I don't think it was from someone's clothes or garbage since the staff cleaned there everyday. It lasted the whole time during my stay. There aren't any padlocks on the lockers and no free washing powder/liquid, so prepare for yourself if you don't want to have extra expenses. One of the staff members kindly helped me find my lost valuables. Really appreciated his great help!

    Nearly nothing bad to say about. ”
    Well, the only insufficiency can be the slow elevator. I waited for that for about five minutes every time. But really, there is nothing more to complain about. Personally, I like the open lounge on the lobby floor, can hang out with all kind of people. Very nice location, I walked to Riverside Park and very enjoyed my time.

    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.

    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.

    Great hostel not great beds”
    Great hostel, perfectly clean, amazing and helpful staff. Great in terms of activities and tours. Not for a long stay in my opinion though. I stayed in an 8-bed dormitory for 6 nights -which is a bit bordeline, sleep mask and earplugs is a must. Provided that it's a hostel I didn't expect much in terms of the bed, but I really struggled. Matresses are quite low quality.

    Good facilities and near subway stations ”
    Stayed in this place twice. 6 beds room with free breakfast is better option. There locker vending machine after checkout but only receive $1 and $5 note, it doesn’t refund if you inserted some monies but then realised short of small note, the credit card payment option seam not working with no connection. The reception is helpful to exchange smaller note for locker, make sure you have enough small notes for the locker.

    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.

    nyc is a crazy city for its high living expense. this hostel is expensive if you compare here with the other part of world, but here is, one of the most cheapest options in nyc. thus, for its price, you have a quite enough reason to select here. besides, this hostel is really clean. actually too many people stay here, but many numbers of hostel staff are working hard for its cleaness. i recommend this hostel for its price and cleaness. the problem here is, as the place is good, too many people stay here.

    The hostel had alot of facilities, pool huge kitchen rooms were ok decpite the beds needed maintenance as it’s very noisy , every one had locker everything was good BUT theres a notice that staff were not friendly AT ALL except one lady I think indian origin she was very sweet, the rest is like doing you a favor that you are staying in their hostel , the cafteria was way more expensive than outside price , you can get a bottle of water twice the price of the super market, also one more thing , theres a charge of 3 USD per night for anyone whos not a memeber in their membership at the time of check in and to become a member you need to pay 18 USD , and the benefits of being a member is that I don’t need to pay the 3 USD per night which is very stupid honestly, no matter how good the hostel is and the facilities are as long as the staff having such attitude you well not be classified as a “good hostel “ people have their vacation to enjoy and to see smiles not like a jail !!

    it was my first time sharing a room with 5 more. The rooms so clean, beds strong with individual plugs and lights in your own space, locker (bring your lock). Toilet and shower (outside room) in such a great condition, clean, big enough for so many people. The building itself looks like a castle, many rooms to chill out, garden with tables, has a cantine with tons of options for you to eat at a normal price. Very friendly staff. If sharing a room it’s like this i will do it again and again. Thank you all.
