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.

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.

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.

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.

wow! amazing place! has it all”
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.

Definitely my go to place next time while traveling in NYC. ”
Ideal location for getting anywhere in the city by bus or subway. A most courteous staff, conscientious roommates, very clean bathrooms. Daily tours/activities were offered that socialize guests and introduce all to this fabulous city if they choose to participate. Hostel coffee shop offers variety of choices for meals and healthy snacks, very much like a Starbucks. Really enjoyed my stay and managed to snag a free parking spot on Riverside Drive within one mile for my three days in town. Excellent value indeed!

My favorite hostel”
This is the best hostel I have ever stayed in. I tried two different rooms. The smaller dorms were my favorite, because they had a curtain in front of the bed and then I could stay up as late as I wanted to without keeping everybody awake. The bathrooms were also clean. It is close to the subway and I felt safe while walking alone in the dark.

price, cleaness”
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.
