Big Apple Hostel is meant to be a top hostel, but both times I've been to New York it has been booked out, so book in advance if you plan to stay there. DO NOT stay at Wanderers Inn West hostel. That is a really crappy hostel, not such a nice area and the staff are amongst the rudest and worst hostel staff I have ever had the misfortune of dealing with. They also don't even have luggage storage there, so if you have a late flight you are stuck carrying all your luggage around town all day.

I would rather stay outside of NYC. You can always take the train in. but thats my own opinion
