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!

Had a great time staying at HI NYC! All the staff was very friendly and accommodating. Considering the bathrooms/showers were shared by a whole floor of gross dudes they were very clean, as well as the rooms themselves. Look forward to staying with HI again soon!

Great technology, eg wifi and charging ports. Improve breakfast variety. Unfortunately left some belongings but won't return within month so this is shame.

I already sent a review for this stay with another survey? I found the quality of the 12 female dorm much lower than the 8 female dorm. The 12 dorm was depressive and dark and the 8 dorm looked much better. There shouldn't be a big difference.
