The city that never sleeps

New York City

Here are the top hostels in New York City for 2020. Despite the NYC law restricting hostels, there are a lot of great finds. There is the Freehand for some luxury backpacking, Hostelling International (in a very cool, historic building) for our traditionalists, and The Local and NY Moore Hostel for the backpackers looking to explore the outer boros.
