The manager is shockingly, stunningly stupid. The rules are really odd..they are basically closed all the time The dorm room is furnished worse than the basement in a shelter. They let crazy people stay..seriously people they have blocked for psychotic behavior feel comfortable here On the plus side it is next to the bus station so it’s easy to leave.
Excellent experience in a colorful location

This was a pleasant experience. We stayed in a private room with a private bath. The staff was very helpful as we arrived late at night yet they were very accommodating. This place is colorful, literally. Our room had crazy paintings on the walls and the towels and linens were equally bright. Our room had a full bath and a full size refrigerator as well. There was AC and for the price we will definitely stay again. Our only hang up was the check out process. There was no direction as we arrived late and at check out time the next morning there was no one around to direct us. We finally found a sign on a door telling us to drop our key there. There is also off street parking but it is limited. Regardless, for the price it was perfect and we will stay again.
Comfortable, walking distance to almost everything

Stayed overnight since we planned to spend 2 days hiking and rock climbing in New Paltz. Room was small, clean and cozy. Not recommended for extended stay (especially if you don’t like tight spaces) but good enough for a couple of nights. Lots of activity nearby and the town including shops, spas, restaurants, coffee shops and stores which were all buzzing at night. We returned at 10pm to obey the hostel curfew.
Have you ever tried a Hostel?
Reviewed 6 february, 2018
If you have never tried a hostel this is probably a good one to try. Depending on which room you request/get-you get your own bathroom and refridgerator. Stayed here for a hiking weekend and was a great inexpensive stay. They have some pretty awesome retro style furniture in the common room and the kitchen was clean. There is some pretty heavy "Irish Lace" in the corners of bedrooms but overall I was not disgusted by any dirt or unclean condition. They have a pretty cool statue of a Yeti out front which is great for pictures.The room was excessively hot which apparently we could not control-only drawback.
Boy, what a let down...

Boy, what a let down... I have stayed at this convenient and low key place a number of times and it was easy in, easy out and very clean, cool and hassel-free. This last visit was a nightmare - the girl who checked me in was literally insane - unfriendly, un-helpful, and so full of herself and the fact that she was the manager for the evening thatit was uncomfortable from the beginning... I have stayed there many times and after I got in, we went down the little hallway to the office - a 2' x 3' cubby off the hall - and she went to the computer to log me in; as she was trying to find my name I leaned in a few inches to see the screen (as I have done many times before with other managers) and she went ballistic, literally transforming instantly into your worst nightmare of a registration person! She freaked out, and in a very loud voice said to get out of the insanely small cubby I wasn't even in... the tension was insane and I tried to talk her back down but nothing could bring her back. She became Nurse Diesel, and showed me the room key and then went up the stairs to take me to the room. I told her she did not need to do that, I have stayed in this room before, and I know where it is... but she insisted, and now became beligerant and defensive. So we went up three flights to the room which she opened and then insisted on opening every drawer, every door and the bathroom, no matter that I tried to tell her I have been there many times and she needn't do this before but to no avail. On the way downstairs an hour later, I went out the front door to my can which was 50 feet away in the driveway, and I propped the door open for a moment, got my bag and came back in - this girl confronted me in the hall, and demanded to know how I got in - I told her that she had just checked me in, showed her my key and told her I went to my car for a minute to get my bag. She went crazy - she started screaming at me that I couldn't do that and that it was a violation of the rules (huh?) and I needed to use the back door and I'd better think about leaving. She'd cancel my three day reservation and refund my money. I said Ok, I'll think about it and went upstairs. 30 minutes later she was at the door, knocking loudly and insisting I needed to leave. This was so insane that I said I am not going anywhere - I had the res, there were no other accoms available, I had paid for this and done nothing wrong. So she went downstairs and reappeared 10 minutes later and had a phone with her and the owner was on the phone. I explained it all to him and added that if he really wanted me to leave I would, but there would be legal consequences since this girl had no basis for doing any of this and it was all on video and he should look at. He rang off, then the girl took the phone and vanished downstairs... Well, I ended up staying for the two days I had booked, but the Nurse Diesel girl was there for the weekend too, and it was uncomfortable and she did nothing to explain or apologize for her outrageous behavior... this was a dead weekend and there was nothing going on and no guests in the Hostel so it seemed to me an over the top reaction by a young, seriously affected person with an inability to handle responsible guest management... and I do not believe I will ever go back after this unfortunate experience. Avoid at all costs. So sorry...
