Value for money is a bit hard to find in New York. The rooms a bit dirty and worn out. Bath and toilet in the hall. Location was okay - you are able to walk to the subway in 5 minutes. There is a nice café just 25 metres away.

This might be a little out of the way for you, depending on where in NYC you want to go. The closest subway stop is Morgan Av on the L train line, which is a block or two away from the hostel depending on if you need to put more money on a Metrocard or not. The Brooklyn area is... More

Great hostel. Stayed here for 4 nights in total. The rooms were really nice and clean, and very warm! The staff were fine. Really close to the subway into Manhattan. Few stops from Bedford av which is a trendy area to visit! Overall, great stay

Stayed here on two separate occasions in November 2014 as part of a group of 3 in a private dorm. The hostel is located in a fairly good area. The subway is a few minutes walk away and once onboard it is 15/20mins into Manhattan. There are many places to eat nearby or purchase some supplies. Particularly enjoyed the Brooklyn... More

the nylh was the perfect place for me to stay in New York. as I'm travelling alone as a woman I'm always glad when I'm living in an area where I can go out on my own.

The Loft hotel in Brooklyn is part of the renaissance of downtown and it's a fine place for a business stop. The rooms are crisp, and there is a nice shower and as well as a well lit sink and make up area. Like others in this part of the W hotel group, there is a small place for take... More

Stayed at this hostel on 2 separate occasions- the rooms are very clean and well sized. The staff are really helpful. It's only a few minutes walk to the subway station, laundry, general store, liquor store, bars etc. Great place to meet new people and have a lot of fun!
