    About this area

    Long Island City

    Located in Long Island City, The Local is near a metro station. 5th Avenue and Macy's are worth checking out if shopping is on the agenda, while those wishing to experience the area's natural beauty can explore Roosevelt Island and Central Park. Consider St. James Theatre for a night out, and don't miss Central Park Zoo, a top local attraction. Our guests appreciate the hostel's convenience to public transportation: 23 St. - Ely Av.

    4/5 Good

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    The staff at the front desk were extremely kind when we checked in. I love how large the lobby is and that there’s a coffee shop you can chill out in and do work. The rooms are smaller, but that’s what you get in a hostel. Despite this they were extraordinarily clean and the beds were very comfortable. I like that we can adjust the heat ourselves too!
