In New York City, $25 a night seems like it would, at best, buy you a room akin to something featured on CSI. Not so at this popular East Williamsburg hostel that combines a clean, modern look with a desirable proximity to both the Bedford Avenue scene and Manhattan. The separate rooms for men and women resemble posh army barracks, with rows of steel bunk beds, nightstands with reading lights, maple floors, and exposed brick. Industrial architectural elements like high ceilings and big windows make rooms feel spacious, despite the fact they sleep up to twenty people. Clean sheets and a pillow are included in the nightly fee, but you’ll want to bring shampoo and a bath towel, which will run you $2 extra if you get them there. There’s just one bathroom per room, and the only food on-site is vending-machine fare, but the bi-level common room offers plenty of room to hang: Upstairs, there’s a lofted lounge with a flat-screen TV, and downstairs, there’s a large open kitchen, dining area, and computer station. There’s also an outdoor rec area for when you crave fresh air, and security is fairly tight—you’ll need a PIN number to access the building, and the desk is manned 24 hours.


Safe, cheap, clean, and curfew-free, this hostel is also just a ten-minute subway ride from Union Square.

You’ll be sharing sleeping quarters (and a bathroom) with two dozen other people.
