What Other Travelers Are Saying

Hostelling International New York remains one of my favorite locations for staying while in the Big Apple. The accommodations are extremely close to public transportation, clean, and constantly updating!””


Ohio State University, Oct. 2019

The staff at HI NY is EXCEPTIONAL. Groups will enjoy interacting with other groups in the kitchen, tasting each other's creations and exchanging language lessons while sharing supplies! This is a friendly and supportive space where ALL ARE WELCOME!”

Thinkpeace workshop

Hostels enable us to mingle with others - other genders, other languages, other nationalities. This is vital in encouraging productive discourse and discovery of what makes us all human. You can't go wrong with choosing Hostelling International for your group. We were well taken care of and felt like family by the time we left.”

Girl Scout Troop 42162

I had the best time! My room was super clean and safe, the staff was amazing and so helpful, and it was overall a really good experience!””



The Great Hostel Give Back Program provided my students with the opportunity to stay in the heart of New York City while participating in a weekend of service, learning, and engagement opportunities across 3 boroughs. From Indigo’s Hostelling 101 presentation, to the comfort and space of the facilities, to the evening programs, the NYC hostel provided a great space for our group to build community, reflect, and recharge!”
