Very Good 8.4 From 517 reviews

Fair 4.0
Not worth it
Very old, my room and also the hallways smelled pretty bad. The location of the hostel was very convenient but other than that I would definitely not recommend staying there. The housekeeping barged in my room and woke me up and left the door open while I was trying to sleep. There was lack of privacy overall. The bathrooms and showers were never clean so I had to shower at my friend’s house instead. I’ve stayed at decent hostels before but this was an example of a bad one.

In-room temperature unit not working
Check-in guy totally ignored the note that I have someone put in by calling in prior to my stay. In-room temperature unit seemed to only work during the day ... it was freezing at night and the heater did not turn on. Tell the front desk, and you are given "instructions" on how to fix it, but in real that is only a temporary override that lasts for 30 min at best. The guy on duty at night really needs some training in hospitality, so that he is not giving guests all types of run around before sending someone. Why the initial setting had the heat target at 55 F is beyond my understanding ... all I know is that we ended up having to rely on a space heater to avoid catching colds.

I was just spending a few hours in the city, so it was perfect for my needs. A place to take a shower and rest for a little bit, clean and safe.

Exceptional 10.0
Solo Hostel visitor
I had a very pleasant stay at the HI NYC Hostel. The rooms were clean. Bathrooms were as clean as you could expect. Staff was nice and respectful. My bunk mates were also nice. The mattress could have been a little better, but overall it exceeded expectations. I would highly recommend this property and would absolutely visit again.

Check in time 4:00pm is too late, and no flexibility at all, should change clean sheet one the fourth day of stay, but it did not happen. Breakfast is not buffet, and not delicious. Location is good.
