What I loved about the New York Loft Hostel was the huge open dorms where you had a single bed (not a bunk) and a huge amount of space to put all your things - especially shopping bags!
Also, there were 2 bathrooms in each dorm (I stayed in 2 that each had 8 - 10 people in them) so you never really had to wait.
Breakfast is included, which is a good thing as for $60 - $65 it is a shade more expensive than hostels in Manhattan. I got addicted to the Eggo waffles they had, but there was also cheap and sugary cereal, toast and fruit. Enough to start the day with.
For such a large hostel the kitchen is tiny and there isn't much space to store food, but it didn't seem like people did much cooking. A couple of times a week there was also a free barbecue, and while everyone always got their fill it was a race to get the fresh batch off the barbie.
The courtyard was nice with picnic tables over which it was pretty easy to meet people.
The L train is only a short couple of blocks away. There is also parking in the street, but be wise and park in the lit, busy areas, as I had my car broken into when it was on a quieter side street.
Some people mightn't feel safe walking there at night, but even at 2am in the morning there were people getting off at the stop and walking in the street. Plus you walk past a 24 hour supermarket.
i would definitely stay here again on subsequent visits.
