Hi. Anyone know some great, and preferably cheap, places to stay for a weekend in the Big Apple? Are there any famous youth hostels there, that are as good as the flying pig in Amsterdam. :)

Hey yeah,
I was there last week and stayed at this great guest house, called the Leo House. It's run by Catholic nuns, it's in Chelsea, on 23rd street between 8th and 9th avenue (there's a subway just near it, take the A and C lines). It's US$75 a night and it's clean and close to everything.

otherwise there's a dingy hostel round the corner called the Chelsea Hostel, I think, you'll find it on the 'hostelling international' site. i don't know how much that costs.

Have fun there it's awesome to walk around if not a little cold, check out the bars in Chelsea, particularly Marie's Crisis and Arthurs next door.

thanks mate.
It is not until later that I`m going there, so hopefully it will be a little warmer by then.

Happy travelling.

Well, the plan was to arrive in the summer with a friend, but looks like I`ll get a weekend in the beginning of march. :D Anyone up for a beer or two? What pubs to visit? Where do they have the biggest beers? :D
