reasonably priced hostel/dormitory in Manhattan
What is the most reasonably priced hostel/dormitory accomodation for international travelers visiting the Manhattan area in June?
Location is important. Chelsea, East/West Village, close to the action.
I have heard good things about Whitehouse of NY.
I was at Chelsea Center a few years ago (when it was $25). It's basically a BIG DORM. They are usually overbooked, you can get cheaper rates if they let you sleep in the basement. Just be prepared to be going to sleep at midnight and woken up at 6 in the morning...
My friend stayed at the YMCA in Dec. It was better than one would expect. http://www.ymcanyc.org/index.php?id=1134 Upper west side near Central park. I am not sure the cost however.
