Very Good 8.0 From 85 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
The best deal in town, hands down. The managers are very sweet and caring people. It's a safe hostel and has a decent dining space. It's quiet there at night. They have dorm rooms that are kept clean. The clientele is very mixed; mostly students from Europe and some travelers from across the US

I loved the New Paltz Hostel Dorm Room - a great way to make friends while traveling. Here is just my thoughts Ask for a lower bunk when you book - most places go with a 'first come first serve' approach but they accommodated me. They have ear plugs and white noise machines if you are a light sleeper. The dorm has a 10pm curfew so you don't have to worry about anyone coming in late and making a bit of noise and being disturbed. Try not to be rude and to turn on the lights and make lots of noise. If you have to leave very early in the morning get all packed and ready the night before if you are making a pre-dawn departure.

Poor 2.0
Owner of property was very rude. I have given him a fair amount of business but he treated me with such disdain. I am a New Paltz resident, and it seems he is more interested in catering to out of towners in higher income brackets than a local who needs a place to stay every once in awhile. When it was suggested that I stay elsewhere it was recommended that for a similar price I could stay at the 87 motel, a buisness that not only has been closed for years, has actually been completely demolished. She got that idea from a list of other hotels in the area that is kept behind the check in area. Maybe the list could use an update. Just a thought.

Good 6.0
You get what you pay for. The location of the hostel was very nice - just a few blocks from all of the shopping, restaurants, and breweries that New Paltz has to offer. We enjoyed not needing a taxi or any other form of transport to get back to our room. The cleanliness of our room (South America) left a lot to be desired. The sheets may have been washed recently, but because they were brown, it was impossible to tell. There was a large bleach stain and hole in the sheets also, which suggests that something gross had gotten on them. Pillows were low quality, and the comforter was adequate at best. The mattress was not uncomfortable but was incredibly noisy if we moved around. The bathroom appeared to have been cleaned, but there was little offered as far as "amenities." Only a bottle of cheap hand soap and value sized Dial body were available - how hard is it to just purchase individual size toiletries for guests. Similarly, the included coffee and oatmeal were in large communal containers: not particularly sanitary considering the shared nature of the kitchen space. Again, I think the extra cost for individual servings would be a welcome change. New Paltz was a very cute town to visit as a break from the fast pace of the city, and having an affordable option like this hostel was intriguing. However, the lack of attention to detail regarding cleanliness as well as poor quality toiletries, food, and coffee made our experience of staying in the hostel rather unwelcoming.

Fair 4.0
The building is in really poor condition and our room smelled damp and musty. Not being able to open the window fully didn't help. No one around a lot of the time and to leav bags with etc. if necessary. Generally a pretty poor experience.
