With free breakfast, lovely garden, and computer room, there’s much to like about the New York Loft Hostel. Located right of the Morgan Avenue subway stop in Bushwick, it’s a perfect jumping off point to see this hip neighborhood. There are several bars and restaurants nearby and it's a quick ride to Manhattan. With weekly happy hours, you’re likely to make some new friends at this hip hostel.

If you're looking for that cheap Euro-type hostel experience, where you pay the least amount possible for a place to sleep, but still have a great time socializing with other broke young travelers, look no further than the New York Loft Hostel.
Though it's true that the rooms are a little bit more expensive than some hostels in the city, the spot is truly worth it with its small, intimate rooms, clean and modern decor, and awesome bar/ back yard to hang out in and meet other travelers, and special events program.
It is also located in one of Brooklyn's most trendy and up-and-coming neighborhoods ensuring that you will be privy to interesting experiences you wouldn't necessarily have had staying elsewhere.

The NY Loft Hostel is a hipster's paradise. Even the walk between the L train Morgan Ave station and the hostel is artsy, edgy, organic—<i>hipster</i>. On my way to the hostel, I passed by a sidewalk art and flea market sale, a hyper-organic supermarket, a very hip café, a Middle Eastern restaurant, and an artists' workspace. The hostel is in a very industrial but young and artsy neighborhood.

The hostel itself is located in a renovated loft building, so the ceilings are high and the rooms are spacious. The facilities look modern and clean. There's a huge outdoor courtyard and large kitchen - great for socializing, cooking, studying, sleeping, etc. The hostel also does free BBQs three times a week. It's in a great neighborhood, with a subway line that provides quick and easy access to Williamsburg and Manhattan, and tons of fun bars and restaurants nearby.

Nice space inside a converted industrial building in East Williamsburg. There are both private rooms and hostel rooms.

Easy access to the L train, which will get you to the rest of Williamsburg in a few minutes and Union Square in Manhattan in about 10-15 min.

Great location, well equipped kitchen and a large common space, but a bit impersonal compared to many other hostels. Also, the common space is mostly outside. Doesn't work so well when it rains.

As a local New Yorker, my friends though my idea of going on vacation in Bushwick was crazy. But the up and coming neighborhood is a fun, quieter place to hang out, and The New York Loft Hostel offers great, affordable accommodations to do so. You can share the bunk bed rooms with friends or strangers (usually young travelers from all over the world). The best part of this hostel is the lounges! These are a great place to meet international friends to explore New York with, or perhaps to visit in their home countries, and enjoy the beauties of Bushwick. The communal kitchen is a fun place to make a meal (just label your food in the fridge!) and the expansive outdoor area is great to lie out in during the summer. DVDs are available in front to hang inside for a movie night and several cafes and coffeeshops are around the block. The hostel is clean and modern-looking, with a European feel but also a cool New York vibe. Privacy is limited here, but as long as you're fine with sharing space with fun people, you're sure to have a good time!

Nestled in Williamsburg, this is a great place for a group of young travelers to stay. A large group can easily stay on one floor and just talk the night away in their large rooms - you're either sharing with friends or sharing with potential new friends. Walking from the L train stop to the hostel, you'll notice some bars and shops (mostly advertised by chalkboard signs), all very creative so for young artists, this might be the place to get inspired. It does feel a bit industrial and at times, especially if you're alone, you might feel a tad unsafe walking back to the hostel.

This seems like a funky place to stay - and you're surrounded by so many activities like open mic comedy nights at Kave Espresso Bar, late night munching at Tutu's, playing pool at Brooklyn Wreck Room and plenty others. If you don't want to go out for a drink, they have a basement bar available. It's a full bar and you can drink and cool off outside in their courtyard.

A great arty hostel option in Bushwick. Dorm-style rooms, with lockers in a former warehouse.
