Read what others are saying about The New York Loft Hostel

I just think that the hostel staff should prepare for a high volume of people despite days/times or holidays. In my experience, we didn't get any towels nor blankets. The explanation was that they weren't expecting that many bookings, but I think a good hostel/host should be prepared with enough towels, blankets, or toilet paper-the basics. Especially, during cold winters as you know New York tends to have, it's important to stock rooms with thicker and several blankets for guests to be comfortable. It's important to adjust the temperature too. People have probably been out touring the city all day and would like to return to a nice and warm place to sleep.

I enjoyed staying at this Brooklyn hostel - subway was nearby and you could get to the City within 25min. The only thing I would recommend other travelers is to ask for a room that is not at the street side as it can be pretty noisy during day and night!

good atmosphere and staff, sadly the shower wasn't that good, most of the time cold water

the staff is really cool and helpful to get into almost any place in the city. they did gave us the free fondue that they say they give. the breackfast is good. the people that was in my room was really friendly. in general i didnt had any problem with anything just had an issue with some gloves lost in my room. also most staff speak spanish is you are not that good on english.

I enjoyed my stay. The place was clean and the atmosphere fancy. The bedroom was HUGE... I would definitely come back.

everything is good but no relashionship was possible between people there: it's a shame
indeed kitchen (only livespace in the hostel) closed at 10 pm

I had a wonderful visit. The weather was so warm that we could eat breakfast outside in the back yard. Also, the dorm rooms were so spacious that it didn't even feel like there were 11 other people sleeping there. Bathroom was conveniently located in the room. Great hostel. Only drawback is the commute to/from Manhattan. While there, check out the Brooklyn Museum of Art--well worth it!

Antje From GermanyOn June 18, 2009
Nice hostel, big room with many people but you can´t feel it.
The best free breakfast what i ever had since i´m travelling.
Andreas From GermanyOn April 20, 2009
This was a good stay at the hostel and the rooms are very clean. The breakfast is a little bit crazy because of less tables to sit and kind of unorganized but enough food.Easy and fast to go to Manhattan by the L train.
Abin From South KoreaOn March 25, 2009
clean and safe.(if you bring your own lock)
Christien From USAOn March 16, 2009
just awesome. Ive never expected this from a hostel, it has a jacuzzi, they serve breakfast, beds are super clean and conffy , people are nice. near the city. I like it.
Helly From NetherlandsOn February 25, 2009
Very nice, clean, quiet hostel with a nice atmosphere in the bedrooms. Maybe the hostel could have/sell some locks to close the lockers in the room. Now i had to look for a place which took me pretty long.
Jens From GermanyOn January 12, 2009
It is a nice hostel with many space in the dorms and also very clean, compared to some other experience I had. I liked it also because of it's new and industrials IKEA style. The bathroom was included in the dorm and you just have to share it with your roomies not with a whole floor, like in other hostels. The subway station is 300m away and in round about 15 min you are in the heart of Manhatten, directly without changing the train. I can recommend it!
