I have stayed in a lot of hostels, and this is probably the nicest one I've ever seen. The courtyard/kitchen area is great, the rooms are clean and the staff is available 24/7. It is very expensive for a hostel, but you're paying for the fact it's in New York and that it is a significant step above a typical hostel experience. Also, they include a simple breakfast.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Pretty decent location- close to L train. Bathrooms are good. The only irritation was the beds were extremely squeaky. Overall, good spot.

Best place to stay and know people. Great location to move to manhattan, and to the JfK airport. Close to the best pizza place in Brooklyn. And also includes breakfast and bbq 2 days a week.

Overall, we were very pleased with our stay at NYLH. The subway was a convenient three blocks away and the staff was very friendly and courteous. Our only complaint was that the wifi was spotty for one of our iPhones while our Android devices connected with no problem. However, wifi is excellent in the kitchen.
