  • No hot water for most (all?) the building. And they continued to check in new guests after learning this! Is that even legal? No alternative arrangements for bathing or handwashing. No compensation for inconvenience. Not even a meaningful apology. I don't plan to return.

  • Very inspiring and creative enviroment to stay in, not a social hostel in general though, do you want to meet people this is not the place. A little tricky to cook in the kitchen that is not well supplied, but works for easy, basic things.

  • What a gem! I was so happy to find LOCAL NYC. The photos online are true to the clean, groovy atmosphere. The staff is truly willing to make your stay pleasant. The bar is awesome! I stayed in a female dorm and it was small, but the beds were comfy (nice duvet), bathroom was clean and enough space for each person to have a hook, locker, and outlets. There is even a cute reading lamp in each bed. The halls were quiet so sleep was possible! Lots of space for people to do their own thing!

  • The location is quite convenient (two blocks off subway) and very secure (I felt okay even walking after dark from the subway). You need to use your keycard to gain entrance to the hallway as well as your room, which I felt added to the security. Very nice open facilities - and one of the cleanest hostels I've ever stayed in. The dorm room set-up is very convenient - separate shower, toilet and sink areas before the sleeping area. I just wish the coffee bar was open earlier.
