The hostel is in a good location in Williamsburg and the subway into Manhattan. However when arriving we were wrongly charged double for the hostel, they would then not refund the price and the woman manager was extremely rude, did not want to try and resolve the situation as she would ignore us. Room also had used tissues in the room with left over items from other customers and you do not get any sleep due to the low walls and subway. Highly recommend to look else where.

The owners of this place think expensive fittings are more important than basic needs like sleep, privacy, security. The walls don't reach the ceiling so the noise keeps people awake, there is always someone yelling to shut up, and the atmosphere is tense and unfriendly. The walls in the bathroom are frosted glass, so you can see people in the other cubicles. It's especially awkward in the common room unisex toilet. The common room opens to the street and anyone can enter without a swipe card.

During my long stay here the bed cover sheet, the one you sleep on was not changed once for the people only staying a night or two. In my room at least 4 different people over two weeks slept on the same sheet. Security is non existent with I kid you not crazy people ending up both in the dorms and café. It is extremely noisy due to the cubicle like rooms. BUT.I had a wonderful time meeting people, the lounge is great and staff as well. With a few changes this Hostel could be absolutely great!

Positives : Good location for food, bars, places of interest etc Negatives: unhelpful staff and manager Rooms are built with gaps in the walls so you hear EVERYTHING from other rooms. Lack of atmosphere and hard to meet other travellers.

The USA still doesn't not get what hostels should be! Why are they all 3 times the price of other major world cities? B hostel is ok but the the whole dorm is divided up into 2 beds per room with no roof so its noisy and not very sociable. The hostel doesn't really offer much in the way of advice about the local area or NYC in general.

Nice place to stay but again like the other reviews you can hear the smallest noise on the entire floor, so make sure to grab earplugs from the front desk. The guy at check in wouldn't let anyone check in before 3, even if it was just five minutes and even told someone off for having a nap in the lounge. The rooms were very clean and nice.

The B Hotel and Hostel is a really nice place to stay for a good price.( for new yorker circumstances) The sleeping area is connected with the reception. Rooms are pretty small and according to thin walls which dont lead to the cealing it is not really sound and lightproof.. The lounge with kitchen, dishes and for example pool table and a lot of seats to relax and meet people is really nice. i can recommend to stay there!

No sense of privacy in this hostel - walls don't come up to the ceiling, bathroom has frosted glass stalls. Yet - it was inexpensive and a good place to hang my hat. I would recommend this hostel for a 1-night stay, but nothing more.

I had to give a poor on cleanliness because of one simple reason. They use so much soap/bleach/detergent whatever it is during their 3 a day cleaning sessions, that you can hardly breath and don't get the smell out of your nose anymore. The atmosphere is weird as you don't have dorms/ big rooms with plenty beds, you have little cubicles with walls not reaching to the ceiling, which is nice for some privacy but you can still hear everybody which made it strangely weird...

The facilities the self are very clean. I didn't like that my room could never figure out of it was a sauna or if it was arctic. It couldn't seem to make up its mind. The thing I hate the most is an architectural detail: i hate that the ceilings are opened and you can everything. I was awakens at 3 AM the other day by a couple in a room near mine. The staff is amazing, though!!! Always willing to help with any problems they Actually can help you with. 😊

This hostel was great the beds were comfortable, and the lounge was beautiful fun and relaxing the ceiling didn't bother me at all the rooms were pretty small but it wasn't a problem. Another thing its traditional dormitory style so you have to share bathrooms. The staff was diverse , very nice and helpful people. Oh another plus the subway is just a block down and there are many things to get in to in the area

Private room does NOT have complete walls. 8 foot walls but open to rest of area. It's SUPER loud. Can hear train, people being rude talking at 2 am, etc. When I got to my room, no clean sheets or towel.... Floor dirty. Trash wasn't thrown. This was a private room. Locks on bathroom doors and showers don't work

The dishwasher was broken all 8 days, obviously you want to save money. The electric kettle broke down one day before I went back. One microwave was broken. Someone stole my spaghetti and tomatosauce although I had name and date on it. You should put a "free to take" shelf somewhere to avoid to much waste.

It is a standard hostel practice for housekeepers not to change the bottom sheet of the bed after a person checks out? DURING MY STAY 3 DIFFERENT PEOPLE CHECKED IN INTO THE ROOM WHERE I STAYED AND I NOTICED THAT THE HOUSEKEEPER WOULD NEVER CHANGE THE BOTTOM SHEET OF THE BED. IT IS UNSANITARY AND HEALTH HAZARD, ESPECIALLY NOW WHEN EBOLA IS IN THE UNITED STATES AND PEOPLE WHO CHECK INTO THE HOSTEL ARE FROM DIFFERENT COUNTRIES.

This hostel is perfect if you're trying to stay at a safe place in Brooklyn that's inexpensive. Only problem is the subway noise (right next to building) but is completely fine with the free earplugs provided. Rooms are just walls and aren't encloses at the top, but again this shouldn't be a problem with noise if you use earplugs (which you should at every hostel). Highly recommend!

A great experience, especially fit for travelers looking for a little solitude as B Hotel tends to place people in separate rooms until they fill up. I was rather shocked by the lack of ceilings, I felt like I was sleeping in a cubicle. Every time a neighbor rolls over in bed, I heard it. I was there on week nights but I can image it gets noisy on weekends.

Nice and clean with a fair price------The noise and the close quarters have been taken into consideration.. Easy to get to. Not the most comfortable neighborhood
