Great spot. Walking distance to all your needs. Clean and well taken care of. Staff were great. The only thing that was disturbing was how unsociable and entitled the residence were. I have never been snubbed so many times in two days in me life! Spoke to at least 5 people without acknowledgement. The people living there take supplies from... More

Stayed in a private room with shared bath on the second floor. Clean. Love their zero-tolerance policy regarding smoking, alcohol and drugs. Felt very safe. Quiet. Very convenient location. A short walk or a much shorter bike ride to the historic Huguenot District. Served the main purpose of being an inexpensive homebase sweet homebase in New Paltz so I could... More

The New Paltz Hostel, like many businesses in the town, has a whimsical character reminiscent of the "hippie days" of the past, but it is a fun, immaculate place to spend a weekend while hiking, rock climbing, or seeing the sights. The original structure, a Victorian house built in 1900, has been divided into guest rooms on the ground floor... More

This hostel's a great and cheap option in New Paltz. I only stayed here one night, but it was one quiet, comfy night. Big clean bed, clean bathroom, intimate atmosphere. Right on Main Street, near great restaurants and shops. For those heading to the Metro-North station in Poughkeepsie, take the Ulster public bus. It runs seven days a week, cost... More

We usually stay in chain hotels (Marriott, Aloft, etc.) and in smaller towns in B&Bs. This time around only half of us were on vacation (Parent and Teenager) and we wanted to be in a more friendly and easygoing environment and for that New Paltz Hostel was a great success. The accommodations are modest, the building in OK conditions. The... More

New Paltz Hostel is literally located next to the bus stop and just a few steps away from the center of town. This makes it incredibly convenient when traveling from the City using Trailways or Greyhound and you're getting in late at night and just want to crash. The reservation process was very easy and my boyfriend and I were... More

If you read this, you may to want to stay there and I want to keep this as my secret. But first - you must understand it is a hostel. It is not a hotel. Having said that, This is the cleanest, quietest hostel I have ever stayed in. The no drinking/drugs/smoking rule is heaven for those of us who... More

I wrote a glowing review about this hostel back in August. Unfortunately, when I returned in October for a week stay I was VERY DISAPPOINTED. First, "Ledo" (owner) was not around and despite having contacting him he never had courtesy to reply. Although, he was in constant contact with staff. First, the hostel guest now must use rear door entrance... More

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... More
