We have stayed at this hostel a number of times over the years. It is certainly not for every traveler, but it suits our needs perfectly. We like the fact that there is a strict no drugs/alcohol/smoking policy and the hostel is one of the quietest I have ever stayed in. This is not a hostel for the late night partying crowd.
The rooms are nothing special, but each has a warm, welcoming touch. Our room during our most recent stay included a queen size bed and two bunks with a private bathroom for $70/nightly. This is higher than most hostels charge, but the New Paltz Hostel is a bit more "upscale" than conventional, bare bones hostels, and the motel rates in the area are rather pricey in general, even the flea bag motels.
One great thing about the New Paltz Hostel is the ease of access to public transit. It is right next to the Adirondack Trailways bus station, and there is also a bus link from the Poughkeepsie Amtrak/MetroNorth train station across the river (a bargain at $1.75). You can't beat that.
