  • I saw rats for the first time in my life tho I've been a lot of hostels around n there was a drunk man in the lounge hitting on me so rudely calling me 'asian.' but the room was quite spacious and the staff were so kind. I didn't feel like it's in a safe area tho

  • Good, clean hostel in a convenient part of Brooklyn. Easy to access the rest of the 5 Burroughs via subway. The rooms were also very clean, only 3 beds per room, with private bathroom. Very good value for the money

  • I really enjoyed my stay at the hostel, it's a nice place, clean with a very friendly staff and a good atmosphere. I really recommend NY Moore as a cheap place to stay near Manhatan.

  • It was really laid back, clean, and in a fun and upcoming neighborhood. At first look, especially on Google Maps, the area can look shady but it's full of 20-somethings and I never felt like I was in danger (even walking alone *very* late). My only gripe is that I wasn't aware of taxes, etc. being added on and I hadn't planned on spending nearly $120 extra for the room (I paid 7 nights for 3 people). They did give a cash discount though!

  • This hostel had very kind, and helpful staff! The rooms and beds are very clean, but our washroom had squished bugs caked onto the floors, so I recommend guests bringing in a pair of washroom sandals. The common areas were well kept and oriented in a way which was conducive to mingling while also permitting one to have personal space if desired. The location was great! It was a quick walk from the subway, and also had some great organic juice bars and stores around the corner too.

  • Staff warm and friendly. Room simple and "poor" but clean. Position quite good (not far from subway station that takes you to Manhattan). However 45$ per night is a little bit too much for what it offers.

  • I have stayed in every youth hostel in the NY area and the newly renovated NY Moore Hostel is by far the best. There is no comparison. The owners work there and Buba, the multitasking gentleman that runs the place will make sure this is your home away from home during your stay
