  • Fantastic location right next to subway into Manhattan. Live music and very helpful staff, especially bar staff. Though other hostel guests were not always social, atmosphere was very nice. Only complaint is that the lockers in the room are not very secure.

  • My sister and I had an amazing time at The Local NYC. Amazing staff, great coffee, good prices. Only two short blocks to the subway. Very safe, lots of storage.

  • I stayed 3 nights, nothing to complain about the hostel. Just one suggestion, they should watch for outside people that stay in the hostel for the night. All three nights I saw the same guy sleeping in the lounge area, with his backpack next to him. He obviously did not pay for his stay, didn't change his clothes, didn't shower either, I don't think it's fair. Not cheap, very nice hostel, but I would love to stay there for free as well.

  • I was in town for a concert, so I just needed a place to shower before it, and sleep after it. The Local, met all of those requirement. Getting there for me was a little bumpy. I got lost in Queens. But, I called the front desk, and asked for direction from where I was. And the lady on the phone was super helpful, she guided me to the right place. I finally made it there, and had a good laugh with the front desk staff. The room was very clean and was the perfect size, for my one night stay.

  • This is a lovely place to stay at, the staff are friendly and helpful, there is always something to do and someone to talk to. The hostel bar is awesome especially on live music nights. They could update the board games collection a bit though and put a shelf for toiletries in the shower but this are minor issues and didn't ruin the stay one bit. I absolutely recommend this place.

  • Great hostel, very clean, good showers. They had computers for us to use for free, that was very helpful. The bar was good too, and there's an atm and a few bending machines. Staff was friendly. Location was good, you can get to Manhattan in no time by train, just one stop and you are in the middle of everything. The only bad thing was that the area wasn't really nice. Had to pay more than I'd been said because of the taxes. should really tell the real price, taxes included.

  • The Local NYC is a great place to stay. Its location is ideal: it is close to the city and there is a supermarket right next to the subway station. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There is free WiFi, and you can do your laundry. The rooms are clean, but the kitchen could be cleaner. I would recommend the Local NYC to other solo travelers.
