Even More Reasons to Call HI-NYC Home During Your Stay in the Big Apple

No other New York City hostels can boast Manhattan’s largest privately owned sunken patio and garden. Spend an evening in this oasis or on our second 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 also great ways to meet fellow NYC hostellers. We also plan daily free tours and events to help you make the most of your stay at this exceptional New York City hostel. 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 advice before you leave to help make the most of your adventure.
