So you’re visiting New York City, and you’re on a hostel budget. But who wants to sleep in a packed hostel with 20 strangers from other countries?

Many tourists don’t know that there are hotels that are similar in price to hostels with the luxury of sleeping in your own private room. Here is a list of the top 5 hotels in New York that are under $100 bucks a night. They may not be the Ritz Carlton, but at least you don’t have to worry about someone snoring next to you.


The Gershwin-This New York City hotel offers a fun, funky vibe and clean rooms for a great price. Most rooms offer private baths, but there are also some dormitory-style accommodations. Suites are available for families and larger groups, but cost a little more than the dorms.

Address: 7 East 27th St.

Telephone: 212-545-8000

Neighborhood: Murray Hill

Subway: 6, R/W to 28th Street

Price Range: dorms: $39-59, private rooms: $109-359



The Jane Hotel- If you’re not willing to settle for a place this hotel has style on a budget. Of course, everything comes with a trade-off, so you’ll have to be willing to tolerate tiny accommodations, shared co-ed bathrooms and locations near the West Side Highway. All that said, it’s a great choice for visitors on a budget looking for a downtown location.

Address: 113 Jane Street

Telephone: 212-924-6700

Neighborhood: West Village

Starting at: $99



Larchmont Hotel- If you’re not shy when it comes to sharing a bathroom, this hotel in the West Village is a great deal. Rooms feature TVs, phones, robes and sinks, with full baths available in the hall. Continental breakfast is included and there are shared kitchenettes on every floor.

Address: 27 West 11th St.

Telephone: 212-989-9333

Neighborhood: West Village

Price Range: $90-165



This hotel claims to be the oldest in the city, and sometimes you can tell just by walking in the door. It has small rooms with few and far between amenities. But SoHotel has three things going for it: location, location, and location. Just steps away from Little Italy, Chinatown, and (of course) SoHo. With restaurants, shopping, and sites all within the same area, what more could you ask for?

Address: 341 Broome St.

Telephone: 212-777-0012

Neighborhood: SoHo

Starting at: $93.07



Hotel East Houston (How-ston)- Just picture you’re standing on a rooftop terrace overlooking Manhattan, sounds pricey right? Wrong! This spotless, cozy, and chic hotel located in the Lower East Side is less than $100 a night.

Address: 151 East Houston Street

Telephone: 212-777-0012

Neighborhood: Lower East Side

Starting at: $92
