One hostel in Queens for solo travelers is the Flushing YMCA.

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.
Long Term Stay Apartments on Woodhaven Boulevard is a good choice for small group of four seeking a moderately priced hostel in Queens. The apartments are fully equipped with all modern amenities, including private bathrooms, and there is parking available as well. Both LaGuardia and JFK airports are less than 6 mi away, and the Woodhaven Boulevard M subway access is within a minute’s walk from the hostel. Resorts World Casino, Aqueduct Racetrack, Queens Center Mall, and the Queens Zoo are all within close range of this location.
A very cheap, no-frills option for overnight or short stays is the Westway Hotel LaGuardia Airport on Astoria Boulevard in the Astoria Heights neighborhood of Queens.
