A Room for Every Preference

Depending on your preference and budget, we offer several room types: mixed dorm style rooms, private rooms, and female only room options. Room amenities: linens provided (sheets, blankets, pillow), air conditioning, ceiling fans, and plenty of outlets. Guests should bring their own towels.

 

Please note: Guests staying at ISC must be over 18 years (unless part of a school group or staying with a legal guardian in a private room).

 

Check-in Hours: 3 pm  - 10 pm

Please note that as a small hostel, our reception closes at 10 pm. Check-in is not possible after this time. To allow for transportation delays, we recommend not making a reservation if you will be arriving in New York later than 8 pm. Of course, once you are here, you will be given a key and you can come and go as you please. 

 

With an approved request, you may be able to come drop off your bags before check-in. However, this must be agreed upon prior to your arrival. Access to your room and building's common areas will not be available until check-in at 3 pm or thereafter.

 

Check-Out Time: 10 am

Luggage Storage after check-out: We offer luggage storage based on space availability for $10 per bag. Luggage storage is available from your check-out time (10 am) to 6:00 pm daily.

 

Make Yourself At Home

Our newly refreshed common areas include: Community Kitchen (newly renovated) and Dining Area, the Reception Room, Arts for PEACE Gallery, Lounge, and Garden. 

 

Advance and Arrival Payments

We take a 10% deposit of your total stay upon booking. The balance is due upon arrival. We accept Cash and Credit Cards. All prices quoted are per person, per night.

 

Check-in Procedures

A valid COVID-19 Vaccination Card and Photo ID must be presented upon arrival - a valid Passport for international travelers and government issued ID for others. Additionally, staff will have a few brief questions for guests and general rules to review. For your safety, we request an emergency contact for each guest.

ISC Cancellation Policy

All cancellations must be made at least 48 hours (2 full days) in advance to be eligible for a refund. Any cancellations made less than 48 hours before the arrival date will be charged for the first night. This includes reservations that are made on the same day of arrival. The credit charge on file will be charged. 

 

The only things we cannot refund are the fees you may have paid to third-party booking sites (like Hostelworld). Usually, these sites will not refund your deposit, which is a good reason to book directly with us!

 

No Show Policy

No shows will also be charged first night's rate, and the remaining days of their reservation will be canceled. A no-show refers to a guest that does not check into the hostel as per the details outlined in their reservation confirmation, and does not notify the International Student Center via email or phone message. 

 

A Note on Accessibility

Our guest rooms are located on upper floors (2, 3, and 4) and require a walk-up (sorry, no elevator available). As a small nonprofit located in a historic 1915 building, we are not ADA accessible yet.
