Top tips for finding New York hostel deals

  • Known as one of the world’s most expensive cities for travel, the main advantage of choosing to stay in a hostel in New York is price. With a thriving hostel scene, travelers can also enjoy some of the most artistic, creative, and friendly accommodations in the city at a fraction of the price of a boutique hotel. Staying in a hostel in New York is also beneficial to solo travelers, giving them the chance to meet new friends in safe and relaxed environments.
  • Couples looking for a hostel in New York can combine the best of both worlds with the Broadway Hotel and Hostel. At budget prices, this design-conscious property offers dorms for two or private rooms complete with coffee machines and TVs. Jazz on Columbus Circle Hostel has more basic amenities but is also popular with budget-conscious couples because of its private rooms and suites.
  • There are plenty of outstanding hostels in New York for solo travelers, but several lead the pack, thanks to their amenities offered and their friendly atmospheres. Jazz on the Park Hostel is known for its coffee bar, game room, summer BBQs, and social pub crawls, while Hi New York offers a different event every night to help solo travelers make new friends—imagine bar tours, clubbing trips, in-house music events, and movie nights. Chelsea International is also very popular for its free pizza nights and spacious hangout lounges.
  • Most hostels in New York are located in Manhattan, with a concentration on the Lower East Side and Upper West Side. Hostels in the Lower East Side district are perfect for travelers on a budget and those looking for cultural diversity, cool bars, and a buzzing nightlife.
