Hostelworld says:

According to one very excited guest 'the ambiance here is spectacular'. The New York Loft is ideal if you're looking to sample the life of a hipster in trendy Brooklyn. With funky interiors, a huge common room and an exciting free breakfast, the hostel is great for making new friends and relaxing after long days in Manhattan. The city is a straight journey on the L subway line, so you'll be well connected to everything important, without the hefty price tag of Manhattan accomodation.

    This was a great place to stay! The atmosphere was very friendly when I stayed here - everyone said hello to each other and it was easy to meet people in the great outdoor common area. This made my stay so much better being a lone traveller. The room was quite large with comfy beds. Bathrooms were pretty clean and I never had to wait for one. The location was good in a fairly industrial area but with little gems of cafes/bars and shops dotted around close by. Close to subway- quick to Manhattan.

    NYC has a reputation for hostels that are overpriced and not necessarily in the top league. The NY Loft Hostel bucks that trend. Brooklyn is a fascinating borough and staying there gives the opportunity to explore a different style of neighbourhood from Manhattan, but to be only a short ride away from it. The area might look a bit rundown at first but persevere and you'll really enjoy it. The hostel is good value, well-run and attracts a diverse crowd. A great find.
