Hi there, I have been recently in NY Manhattan, if you care for direct contact with a nice,very clean hostel, individual or shared rooms, I can recommend the JAZZ in Upper Manhattan, a nice safe area close to Central Park and good bus combination to Mid and Downtown...in case you can t stand that dirty and noisy subway...had enough of subways after 1 day :-)
[b]JAZZ
201 West, 95th (passing Columbus Ave), NY 10025
T: 212 678 0323

Make a fix fare with the cab driver, including bridge fare....it s about $50 from the JFK airport to the Jazz, depending on days and traffic.
I add you as friend in case you need more info

You pay dearly for staying in Manhattan, try Brooklyn, Queens or New Jersey (all close by).

Have you checked out the list of NYC hostels here on TP? :) There's also the option to look at all budget accommodation in NYC on that page, which includes budget hotels and some apartments. A few years back I found this great place on the upper east side for 100USD a night here. It's no longer listed, but there should be other good deals there :)

Not sure what you mean by cheap but we are staying at the Chelsea Pines Inn and found that reasonable (considering we will be in New York over Xmas). It's got great reviews on Trip Advisor and in Lonely Planet!

i stayed in the 311 times square hostel last weekend and it was really nice!

its about 4 blocks from times square on a quiet street. and i think you can get rooms from about $40 a night!
