  • Although as an American who had travelled to and through NYC many times, it was only during the first week of March, 2016 that I actually took the time to 'stay' as in a 'foreign country' and in a 'hostel' to tour the City of New York. Little did I know at the time of booking what the 'new' 'boutique' hostels were all about. I was pleasantly surprised with LNYC. In a 'warehouse area', but done up in a 'loft-style' which is not only trendy, but, welcoming, friendly, and very inviting. Try it!

  • Awesome little place you have here! Definitely want to commend Matt at the front desk for answering all my stupid questions with a smile. The morning cafe was awesome, definitely thanking Rachel for the top notch service and laughing at my bad jokes. The cafe/bar would be a little better if they served coffee later on into the night.

  • The Local is clean, organized, and homey. My female-only room was pristine and comfortable. I was happy with the size of the lockers, which fit my suitcase and backpack together. I spent most of my time in the common area, which has full bookshelves, computers, and a variety of seats and lounging chairs. The in-house cafe is lovely and has great tea. The kitchen was well-stocked and comfortable to eat in. I would highly recommend The Local. It was a great value for what I paid.

  • You guys run an absolutely fantastic hostel, the best I've ever stayed in. The best location and completely safe! All your staff are so amazing, shout out to Emily who worked the cafe/bar on christmas day and chatted with me for about 4 hours, you're made my christmas! My home away from home while I'm in New York for sure, keep up the fabulous work!

  • I thought this hostel was great! Very modern, chic and cozy! My only suggestion would tell people to bring their own locks for the lockers as the ones provided are a bit too thin to secure everything in the provided lockers.

  • Nice, clean hostel. The price was ok, considering this is New York. One could hear some noises through the walls.
