Groups. Groups love HI New York City!

HI NYC is the perfect base for your next group stay. We bring together travelers from across the country and around the world. Our shared kitchens, dining rooms and lounges ensure plenty of opportunities to connect with other travelers and we encourage groups to participate in HI NYC hostel events and programs ranging from casual outings to rich cultural activities where we help your group get to know the New York we know, beyond what you’ll find in guidebooks.

HI NYC can also host your next event or community function.
