Thread: Hostels

  1. #1

    Default Hostels

    A friend of mine and me are planning a trip to NYC. Since hotels cost around $200 per night, we kinda chose to stay at hostels(which cost $12 a night).

    I want to know New Yorker's opinions about those hostels. I want someplace just to sleep at night.

    It was suggested to me a hostel at W30th St.

    What do you think?

    Umm.... not all hostels cost $12 a night, and certainly none in NYC.

    I would recommend this website: http://hostels.com/
    They have ratings, reviews, and online booking for a large selection of NYC hostels.

    YMCA's are a good alternative. A bit more expensive, but you get privacy.

    Default cheap Hotels

    nah nah nah

    Look to the West Side inn on 107th or the Morningside inn.

    Shared bathrooms basic but clean and safe $80-90 a night next to Broadway and subway . It's all you need. How about the HOJO

    Howard Johnson on Boston road and east Tremont! HA 75 a night including girls you need in the beautiful surrounding! Good luck enjoy your NYC experience.

    If your leaving from NYC take a train from NY Penn Station to Newark Penn Station. If you coming from out of town into the city I would have to to know where you are from to help you out.

    The Airtrain runs to all terminals at Newark Liberty Airport and connects to Penn Station via NJ Transit and Amtrak. http://www.panynj.gov/airtrainnewark/

    The Air Train runs to all terminals at JFK too and the Air Train will connect you to the subway's A line I know for one and further up in Queens to the E, J and Z lines. Plus the A and E both serve Penn Station at 34th Street.

    Default Hostel help

    I'm coming to New York alone on December 16th to spend the holidays. I've lived here before and I know the city. But I had my own house back then.

    I'll probably be staying in hostels this time around, but I've been on some of those sites and I just can't make a decision without a recommendation.

    Do any of you know some good hostels? All I care about is that they are relatively safe. I've lived in the bush of Africa for years, so I know how to rough it. I just need a warm place where I can lay down and close my eyes.

    Also, do you think I should pre-book? Or will I be okay coming in to NY and finding accomodation?

    Thanks for all your help!

    I've stayed here before and didn't have an awful experience:

    It's $75 a night for the time you're visiting. You should definitely book in advance. Thanksgiving to New Year's is prime time for visiting the city.

    Thanks!

    There seems to be a problem with the reservations feature, though, and the email I sent detailing the problem failed.

    Here's the phone number: 212-866-0061.

    You should that to confirm if the e-mail is at all dodgy.
