I never found an hostel like this in nyc before. The location is modern and cool! The rooftop view amazing! The rooms are big and clean. The receptionist was super kind and she helped me to solve a problem with the computer.
Grat budget accommodation. Kitchen with fridges so you can leave food. Free lock for the lockers, and a shower and toilet just for our room (stayed in 4bed). Close to E, M and G and F subway lines - a great location! Also close to MoMA PS1. The rooftop terrace with great view. Would stay again!
I have stayed at this property on a few occasions. The staff are very welcoming, the facilities are great and the location is one stop from manhattan.
Good location, great view of the manhattan bridge, and manhattan skyline
The kitchen equipment, the situation near to subway was not too bad. The phone adapters and the hair dryer available at the reception
The noise of the cleaners at the corridor and all their stuff blocking the walk there. Cleaning of the room was not done correctly. Rooms are not that clean. Full of dust! Towels and linen never changed. You have to ask for it if not you can stay with the same your hole stay!
Like the location, you can take one Subway ( Either the E or 7) back and forth in the city. This location has plenty of activities to do. Plus the staff is friendly and helpful. The lockers can fit a carry on suitcase plus a bookbag. Definitely a good place if you are single and want to mingle!
Small shower station in the room but it's super clean. Towels are not replaced daily.
With a stay at The Local in Long Island City (Queens), you'll be within a 5-minute drive of Madison Square Garden and Chrysler Building. Featured amenities include complimentary wired Internet access, a 24-hour business center, and a 24-hour front desk.
