New York Hostels i stayed in and loved!

I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of hostels in New York City, for the reasonable pricing ($50 a night)

For most of my stay in New York, i was Couchsurfing with my buddy Nick Gray who runs these amazing tours of the MET.

On the days he couldn’t host me, i stayed at these places, and loved every bit of it – the fact that i had to criss-cross the city by metro also helped me figure out the city better and experience the local life better!

if you’re headed to New York any time soon, take my word for the awesomeness of these 3 hostels:

NY Loft Hostel, BrooklynA fun, artsy hostel located in colorful Brooklyn.

Q4 Hostel, Queens

Leading an experimental life as a digital nomad, I started traveling in 2007 while choosing to shuttle between Goa and Mumbai as 'home'. An epic life-changing trip to South America an year later gave birth to this blog, Exotic Gringo.
