    The Local is technically a hostel, yes, but that doesn’t mean guests have to shack up dorm-style. Private (ensuite) rooms are available for budget-conscious travelers looking for a clean, fun and attractive place to stay in New York City at a steal of a price. The vibe at the Local is social and artsy; the bar and lounge routinely host literary readings amid locally curated artwork. Guests have access to the rooftop and laundry room, which helps to make extended stays a lot less stressful.
