Clean hostel, good common area. In an up and coming suburb which could look a bit shifty at night but it wasn't. Overall an enjoyable stay !

Hello Guest, Sorry to hear that your stay was not what you expected. We invite you to write us an email letting us know what we could have done better so that we can improve! Best Regards


Good hostel for a reasonable price. The transport into the city is easy and the hostel offers everything you need. If you want to escape the ridiculous prices in Manhattan - book here!

Hello Guest, Thank you for your review, we appreciate your feedback and we hope to have you return!! All the best!


The Positive: Amenities offered at low daily rates. Negatives: Based on this experience, communal lodging is not for me, not for my demographic. I was preoccupied with project deadlines/transition and wanted to keep a low profile. A few rude/quirky tourists made the atmosphere unpleasant . It was challenging for me to quickly grab or make something to eat in the kitchen, these abrasive guests didn't understand the word BOUNDARIES. I plan to stay at a proper hotel for the next conference visit.

Hello Guest, Thank you for leaving us your feedback. One of the unique parts about hostels is the common area and shared rooms. If you are uncomfortable with sharing space or get agitated easily, then we agree that a hotel would suit your preferences better. We hope that the staff, amenities, cleanliness and provided food were up to par while you were here, as those are the parts of the hostel that we have complete control over. We appreciate your business!


New York Loft Hostel was a wonderful surprise--clean, spacious, and just a few blocks from the L train for about what you would pay in many less-expensive cities. The staff was friendly, free of hipster attitude, and the free breakfast was thorough, with big bowls of fruit, English muffins, unlimited coffee, and cereal, rather than the half-assed effort in some hostels. With the three-bed dorms providing quiet and privacy, I would go definitely return.

Clean and a great value. Decent area with plenty of food close by. Close to the L train, easy to get to the city center. Staff was unbelievably helpful, they made my stay so nice!
