Top tips for finding Brooklyn hostel deals

  • Choosing to stay in a hostel in Brooklyn would be a wise move for the budget-conscious traveler, as this borough (like the rest of New York City) is notoriously expensive in terms of traveling accommodations. In addition to providing a cheap place to sleep, many hostels in Brooklyn go the extra mile to make their guests feel at home, offering common areas, city tours, and comparatively inexpensive food and drink or self-catering options.
  • Many hostels in Brooklyn are conveniently located in either Williamsburg or East Williamsburg, two of the most exciting neighborhoods in the borough. Travelers who choose to stay here will be perfectly situated to experience some of the city’s best bars, restaurants, coffee shops, and boutique stores, not to mention intriguing street art and local green areas like Highland Park. These neighborhoods also have convenient public transport links to the rest of New York City (Times Square is no more than 30m by metro).
  • Solo travelers will enjoy staying at nearly any hostel in Brooklyn, as the majority of them are known for their friendly atmospheres and spacious common areas. Among the best options are the NY Moore Hostel and International Students Residences, which have small dormitories of four to six beds, making getting to know other people easy. It is also possible to enjoy shared kitchens or common rooms with TVs, board games, and movie nights. The NY Moore Hostel also has a popular backyard and serves free hot drinks.
  • A couple looking for a hostel in Brooklyn may be wishing for more privacy than a dorm room. Couples will find themselves well served at a property like the Greenpoint YMCA. Unlike most hostels, this one boasts double or twin rooms with shared bathrooms and an indoor swimming pool and fitness center. For those looking for even more privacy, the NY Moore Hostel offers three-bed rooms with private bathrooms.
  • If you’re looking for a cheap hostel in Brooklyn, you should consider going during the low season. You’ll generally find lower-priced hostels in Brooklyn in January and February.
  • Hostel room prices vary depending on many factors but you’ll likely find the best hostel deals in Brooklyn if you stay on a Sunday. The most expensive day for hostel bookings is Thursday.
  • If you want to ensure you grab a bargain, try to book at least 29 days before your stay to get the best price for a Brooklyn hostel.
  • The cheapest 3-star hostel in New York found on KAYAK in the last 2 weeks was $128, while the most expensive was $329.
