Clean, light, airy, and friendly, the walls are becoming the latest neighborhood gallery space. Staff is friendly, multicultural and multilingual, quickly responsive, helpful, and know their stuff. They run a friendly, professional, hip without being snobby or flaky, safe, clean, hospitable place -... More

I travelled to New York about 2 years ago while on a roadtrip through the US with a few friends. We stayed in multiple hostels throughout our trip and decided the NY Moore hostel was definitely our favourite one by far. The staff there were so personable, welcoming and helpful. The location was good, right in Williamsburg and the subway... More

This was the best surprise of my time in America. This hostel was amazing. I made some life long friends in my time there. Lauren, the receptionist was the greatest human and helped me out so much. The room I was in was amazing (6SF Ensuite), on the top level. I had a double bed and so much privacy. I... More

Bed sizes vary, checking in earlier can mean a big bed. Friendly staff and travelers in general. Quiet, relatively clean (much much better than the ones in manhattan). Book earlier, they get booked up pretty fast. Excellent/friendly/helpful staff, love them.

This Hostel is very close to a metro station, 2 blocks from there. The rooms are very clean, and comfortable. It has a common area with fridge, HDTV, computers, sofas and many things very helpful to rest after a long day within the city. The Staff service within the hostel is very polite. For me, beside the metrocard and the... More

NY Moore is the place where you want to be!!! And this is not 100, this is 110%. Let me start with: absolutely conveniently located in awesome Brooklyn - which definitely, totally, has surpassed Manhattan these days, to begin with. The Moore is situated right on the border between East Williamsburg and Bushwick, the up-and-coming neighborhood these days. A formerly... More

I stayed here for just one night between a long international flight and another domestic flight. I was absolutely exhausted, and the staff was SO nice and accommodating and got me checked in quickly so I could take a nap. They have hair dryers available, which is a nice little extra. I was expecting a scary neighborhood, but it was... More

I stayed here for a week in October 2012, the week before hurricane Sandy. At first the hostel seemed to be in a bad location, bit of a dodgy area, but once you get your bearings you realise its just a bit industrial and even coming back late at night I never felt unsafe as a single female traveller. It's... More

I stayed here over the holidays last year in 2011. It was one of the best experiences I had in hostels I've stayed in the US & Canada... The staff are friendly. The hostel has the perfect combination of cozy & fun. They were renovating and constructing parts of the hostel at the time, I'm sure it looks even better... More
