Hostelling International New York

We're located in the heart of Manhattan's Upper West Side, only two blocks from Central Park, a main subway line, Columbia University, lots of bars, a 24 hour grocery store and only a 20 minute train ride to Times Square, Penn Station and all the great things New York City has to offer.

You can spend your evenings in our sunken patio and garden (Manhattan's largest privately owned) or on our 2nd floor balcony-- rarities in space conscious Manhattan-- or join one of our FREE nightly happy hours, FREE pub-crawls, or FREE clubbing nights. If you feel like staying in, our in-house theater offers a perfect opportunity to rest up or watch the World Cup on a huge screen. Our FREE pool table and FREE Wii are great ways to meet fellow hostellers.

We plan daily free tours and events to help you make the most of your stay. But, if you'd prefer to go it alone, our helpful info staff (on duty 24/7) will gladly provide you with a map and advise you before you leave to help make the best of your adventure.
