Welcome to HI-New York City, Manhattan’s premier hostel located in a historic Victorian-style building on the Upper West Side. The hostel is in a great location for exploring the city and is only two blocks from Central Park, a 10 minute train ride to Times Square and close to a main subway line, lots of bars, and a 24-hour grocery store.

Our hostel is a hub of friendly atmosphere and great facilities. We have a large kitchen, family room, renovated bathrooms and showers, free linens and towels, free Wi-Fi, 24-hour reception, private lockers, on-site laundry and free billiards/pool table.

HI-New York City offers plenty of guest discounts to help make your travel budget go further. We plan daily tours and events including pub crawls, volunteer-led tours and evening outings, comedy shows in our in-house theatre room and ‘Jerry's Grand Tour’ which gives you a full day touring New York City!

Extremely unfriendly receptionist. When I was about to sign the receipt with a ballpen, he told me to sign using the electronic pen instead, with conspicuous disguise on his face, like I have never seen such an "advanced" device in my whole life. Why should I know to sign on the electronic screen if you don't tell me?!
