Welcome to our hostel

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!

Die Zimmer sind zwar spährlich eingerichtet, dafür gibt der Aufenthaltsraum einiges her und ist modern eingerichtet. Das integrierte Kaffee bietet allerlei Sachen an, wo jedermann etwas Gutes findet.

A couple of things were disturbing me during my stay : - you need to put curtain around the beds, for the privacy of each one - you also need "european" restrooms, I mean a real separation between each restroom. I know your kind of restrooms are pretty common in the US, but as a foreigner, it's really disturbing to hear everything that happens next to you
