I stayed here for 4 nights before heading off to teach at a summer camp. I could not wait to be back in the area of New York and this location was great! Staying in Brooklyn was brilliant, a quick subway ride (station just around the corner from the hostel) into the city, breakfast was included, you just need to... More

The New York Loft Hostel is located in a safe quiet Brooklyn neighborhood, and it is only a 6 minute walk to the nearest train station. The hostel is a few train stops from Times Square, making it very very convenient and quick getting into Manhattan. I also felt very safe arriving back very late at night. I did not... More

Suits Brooklyn perfectly. A real change from downtown and other hostels I had stayed at in Manhattan. A large hostel with great outdoor/indoor kitchen chill areas resulting in a good social vibe. Would have been an Excellent rating but not being able to bring own drinks is frustrating. The hostel is cashing in on having its own bar which is... More

We had a great time here until security entered our room late at night, unannounced and for no reason. They woke us up and harassed and threatened us with removal without cause. We could hear them banging on other guests doors quite loudly and yelling at them throughout the night, which woke us up several times.

Stayed twice here in August 2014. First time, we got a private room from 1st floor near the common area. It was rather noisy, so couldn't get much sleep as people were talking on the corridor and walking past our room all night long to reach the common areas (kitchen and the outdoor area). But other than that, we were... More

I can only think that other people were staying at a different hostel to where I was. This hostel was completely dead, it must have been 80% empty. I was staying in a private bedroom with a shared bathroom which was horrendously expensive for one of the smallest rooms I've ever stayed in. There was a hole in the window... More

Free wifi, very close to the... More

I stayed here for five nights in April 2014. The hostel is in an old building but this isn't reflected on the inside. It's super modern, clean and we'll looked after... It's one of the cleanest hostels I've been too. The decor inside is pretty fun too! There are lots of freebies included with things like BBQ dinners and movie... More
