Hi everyone,
I'm doing some research for my boyfiend, he's gonna spend a week in NY next summer.
I was wondering if any of you have any advice on cheap acommodation in Manhattan??
I've been looking at many websites of hostels round the city, but i'm still not so sure which are worth it.

any ideas?

thx so much!

Ana

rent a apartment for the week - you can find them online via craigslist.com you'll have a better time, from what I know you'll find more hostile, than hostel if you go too cheap. I hate to say that but I've just heard too many bad stories about accomdations here lately.

Hi! Its not manhattan but you could try accomodations in Jersey City which is just a 10-15min train ride to the city. It's right across the river and it has great view of the city. Downtown Jersey City is going through major renovations since 9-11 to attrack more visitors. I use to live there, and going to and from the city is no problem.
