HI Syracuse is a perfect base for exploring the history and natural beauty of central New York State. Located in an 1895 mansion just a mile from downtown Syracuse, this seasonal hostel is convenient to the Erie Canal Museum, Amory Square, and Syracuse University. HI Syracuse is a popular base for those attending the New York State Fair in August, a convenient stopover for travelers on I-90 and I-81, a good starting and ending point for adventures in the Finger Lakes region. Cyclists are welcome. Due to its small staff, the hostel has a lockout period from 10am to 4pm each day. There is no curfew.

Open dates for the 2016 season: June 24-September 4
