This hip and trendy budget destination reinvents classic hostel culture.
Today’s hostels have definitely graduated from the old days of granola culture, hippie proprietors and simple sleeping cots. Case in point, New York Loft Hostel is solidly modern, bright and — dare we say it — sexy. Within its fashionable Williamsburg, Brooklyn-based neighborhood, the property fosters an easy camaraderie among those looking for New York accommodations with a sense of community.
For the most affordable option, guests can reserve a sleeping bunk in a male, female or mixed dorm room, all with personal reading lights, shared bathrooms and secure lockers to keep valuables safe.
