Fodor's Expert Review New York Loft Hostel

249 Varet St., Brooklyn, New York, 11206, USA

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

This funky design hostel in a repurposed factory has bright and attractive common spaces and is one of the coolest budget accommodations around. Shared rooms mean you have to be willing to share space with strangers. Events like BBQs and pizza nights encourage guests to hang out and there is plenty in the neighborhood to see and do, and great food options nearby. Common areas include two decks (one on the ground level and one on the 3rd floor), a spacious kitchen for cooking your own meals, a television nook with couches, an Internet room, laundry facilities, and a downstairs bar and lounge with rotating events like comedy night and movie screenings. Dorm rooms are simple and spacious and there are some twin privates; some rooms have ensuite bathrooms.
