New York Loft Hostel
This renovated 1913 warehouse building in Bushwick is a good choice for urban pioneers. It has spacious, brick-lined dorms, with two or three beds in each. Amenities include a communal kitchen, a large patio area with picnic tables and a small terrace. With loads of activities on offer – outdoor barbecues, film screenings, bar crawls – this is a great place to meet other travelers.
