If you are planning a vacation to New York City but are on a strict budget, you can find several cheap hotels online. And, for all those having a hard time, here’s a list of 5 budgeted hotels in New York City where you can put up during your vacation.
This is a great place to stay for singles and backpackers on the lookout for cheap hotels. Situated on West 94th street, Manhattan, Candy Hostel is just a few minutes away from Central Park and the Hudson River esplanade. Also given the proximity of the subway station, you can easily connect to Fifth Avenue, Times Square and the Broadway Theatre.
The hostel is staffed with 141, reasonably clean accommodation units. Here you are given the basics you need namely a television, air conditioning, high-speed internet and secure storage lockers. They do not have an on-site dining facility. The only negative point of this hostel is the shared bathrooms.
This one’s quite easy on the pocket despite the extravagant picture it paints on the outside. Housed on 49th street, Brooklyn, it is only 5 kilometers away from New York City’s main attractions. While staying in the area, you can also visit the local attractions such as the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, New York Aquarium and the Brighton Beach.
The 97 rooms are small yet comfortable enough. There is limited onsite parking, about four spaces. The other facilities that allow for a great holiday experience include the breakfast buffet, private bathrooms, air conditioning, satellite TV, telephone, internet access and facilities to make coffee and tea. It is a great place to stay if you have a family and if you are looking for cheap hotels in NYC.
Econo Lodge, Times Square
It is slightly on the pricier side compared to the other two accommodation options, but it offers the best value given its central location; it is in the heart of NYC. They offer facilities such as an air conditioning unit, cable TV, microwave, iron and ironing board and a work desk that allow you to go about your day smoothly despite being away from home. You can treat yourself to a sumptuous breakfast at the breakfast room. The friendly staff is another reason to stay here.
If you hate travelling and want to be just a hop, skip and jump away from the central attractions in New York City, Ramada is where you should book yourself.

Not only this, it should take you not more than 10 minutes to arrive at the LaGuardia Airport and John F Kennedy Airport.
