Top tips for finding Queens hostel deals

  • One hostel in Queens for solo travelers is the Flushing YMCA. Located on Northern Boulevard, this property provides accommodations that include private and multiple-occupancy rooms with shared bathrooms. Prices include around a daily $5 membership fee to access amenities like the gym, yoga classes, and the swimming pool. The Y is served by the Flushing–Main Street subway station (IRT 7), with short connections to Manhattan, and it’s close to several Queens landmarks, including Flushing Meadows–Corona Park, Citi Field, and the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.
  • For those who prefer all-male or all-female accommodations, The Local on 44th Avenue in the Long Island City district is an option that features 4-bed, single-sex rooms with in-suite bathrooms. There is a free airport shuttle to and from LaGuardia Airport and JFK, if you are flying into New York City. The Court Street M subway station is a short walk from this very affordable hostel in Queens. A few local attractions include the Museum of the Moving Image, Gantry Plaza State Park, and Silvercup Studios.

Nevertheless, there are some interesting attractions less than 3 mi away, such as Socrates Sculpture Park and Isamu Noguchi Sculpture Museum.
