Cheap accommodation in New York: choose your location carefully

When looking for cheap accommodation in New York, think carefully about where it is located. Indeed, the more you look in downtown Manhattan, the higher the prices will be. And conversely, if you go to Brooklyn, Queens or Long Island, you are likely to find more affordable accommodation.

However, my advice will be to check that your accommodation is near a metro stop. This is an important point, as it will save you wasting time in reaching midtown Manhattan, and allow you to enjoy your stay. So think about it!

Now it's up to you to compare the different options and find the right compromise between location, price, comfort and interest. Below are some of my recommendations for hotels outside of Manhattan that offer comfortable accommodations at affordable prices.

The Nesva Hotel, in Long Island

Located in the Long Island Borough, the Nesva Hotel offers rooms with beds very comfortable, with flat screen and WiFi connection. You can enjoy the view offered from some rooms, and the breakfast included in the price.

The good tip is that the hotel is located right next to the Metro 39th Avenue, which will allow you to reach downtown Manhattan very easily and quickly.

Opt for basic comfort

The second rule, after location, concerns the comfort of the hotel room. In fact, the more options you have, the higher the prices will be. This is particularly the case for services such as a swimming pool, a gym, valet or laundry service.

So go for something pretty basic! You will undoubtedly be able to make some great savings on the price of your New York accommodation.

After all, you probably won't be spending a lot of time in your hotel room. Indeed, you will be far too busy roaming the four corners of the city to enjoy a gym, right? Especially if it is a short stay.

This is particularly the case if you are absolutely looking for accommodation in the borough of Manhattan. In this case, you will have to choose between high prices and basic comfort. Also, here are some ideas for accommodations located in the heart of Manhattan offering basic rooms at very affordable prices.

The Pod 39 hotel, one of my favorite hotels

As I told you before, the Pod 39 hotel is one of my top budget hotel favorites in New York. Located in the heart of Manhattan, right next to Grand Central Terminal station, this hotel is utterly charming. You will be pleased to find comfortable rooms with TV and WiFi included. But my big crush with this hotel concerns its rooftop ! So climb quickly and discover a multitude of tables installed under the garlands of paper lanterns. Sip your beer or cocktail in a setting 100% New Yorker !

Note that the hotel also has a restaurant and a ping-pong room. A nugget, I tell you!

Cheap accommodation in New York: choose a hostel

Sleep in a dorm

Another solution to combine central position and affordable prices is that of the youth hostel. Indeed, staying in a youth hostel generally involves sleeping in a shared dorm with several other travelers. Otherwise, you can also opt for a very modest room.

This is an option to consider if you are traveling alone or with friends, and do not need privacy or special comfort.

Make friends

The good thing is that you are sure to meet new people if you stay in a hostel. Because most of the occupants are between 18 and 25 years and are travelers from all over the world. So if you want to find travel companions or party in the evening, this is an option to consider without hesitation!

Of course, don't expect great comfort. Most dorms have between 6 and 8 beds. However, there are sometimes dorms with dozens of beds! Additionally, expect to share your bathroom and toilets with other residents. The watchwords are to take care of your business, so as not to inconvenience anyone and not to lose anything. That being said, the majority of youth hostels provide lockers and padlocks. You can use these to store your belongings safely during your stay.

In addition, a shared kitchen and a lounge are usually included within the hostel. You will be able to cook in a group, and meet up after a long day of sightseeing to chat with other residents and share your tips over a beer or two!

Great savings

Count between 30 and 60 dollars per night, to which you will often have to add city taxes of 13,25% per day and a few dollars of daily tax. Check with the hostel before making your reservation if you have any doubts.

Finally, here are a few tested and approved hostel suggestions that will ensure you have a great time during your stay in New York. Ready ? So don't forget to take your earplugs with you. This will allow you to sleep well despite any snoring from your roommates!

Hostelling International, in the heart of Manhattan

Located on Amsterdam Avenue and a stone's throw from Central Park, the Hostelling International hostel offers clean and functional dormitories for everyone. Each dormitory has its own lockers. Also, you will find in the hostel pleasant common areas such as a kitchen, a living room, a laundromat, a café ... And even a salle de jeux !

Make your reservations in advance

Finally, my last (but not least) tip will be to do it in advance. Indeed, I can only repeat it to you! This is the case for just about everything in New York City. Hotels and inns sell out quickly, especially when it comes to vacation periods, or establishments valued for their location, price or reputation.

Also, the more you organize yourself in advance, the more you will be able to benefit from a wide choice of best offers tariffs. So compare your different options online, and don't hesitate to book as soon as possible.

 And the good thing about Booking is that very often the cancellation is free, so you have nothing to lose! If you want more information on the neighborhoods to sleep in New York, do not hesitate to consult my article dedicated to this subject.
