Housing in New York: Room or apartment in Manhattan for $ 50
Housing in New York expensive. It is worth opening any search engine for hotels and you see that it is practically no cheaper than $ 100 options, but those that are (for 70-75 dollars) are either terrible or completely uncomfortable. Preparing for a trip to New York, it seemed to me that even in just ten days, which had to spend in the city of skyscrapers, you will have to give a bunch of money for housing, which we were not ready for. That’s right with Andrews and paid attention to the alternative – Then not so popular site airbnb. It turned out that it can find excellent options in terms of price and quality that we did. It was our first acquaintance with Airbnb, which soon turned into a strong friendship;)
What is airbnb?
Briefly speaking, airbnb – This is a resource for booking housing worldwide directly from the owners. Here you can find everything – From budget options, when you rent a place in a common room, a separate room in an apartment or a house, or a simple apartment, to luxury apartments, huge houses, country villas, yachts, palaces and t.D. For economical travelers, the site is attractive with competitive prices (sometimes you can find not only rooms, but also apartments at the price of hotel rooms), for uneconomical – AirBNB will be interested in variety and extraordinary accommodated housing options, and for everyone together – Easy use.
Everything is easy enough: they register and confirm your data (the hosts also people want to know that you are a real and adequate person), then you can search and choose accommodation, communicate with the owners and place a reservation:

Our student apartment Airbnb in New York
As already mentioned, rental housing in New York has become our first booking experience through Airbnb. We removed the room in a two-room apartment in Manhattan, very close to Broadway, for only $ 50 (fairness it is worth noting that at the beginning of 2014 the dollar rate was much more pleasant). By the way, now the options are much more that can not but rejoice.
«Our» The apartment turned out to be the property of the Columbia University issued to two graduate students, one of which was leaving home for a month to Chile and decided to pass his room for vacation. We got a simple, but a cozy room with everything you need, excellent atmosphere and a very comfortable bed)) The neighbors were a guy and a girl from Chile, so also Spanish practiced a little before riding to Mexico. It turned out that so to live in New York much more interesting than in the standard room of some hostel or hotel.
Below a pair of photos to be clear what we are talking about. They are not very high-quality, because then we have not yet known that airbnb will be so often to help us out on trips, and that I want to recommend it to blog readers (then, before traveling to the States, we must admit, we also have readers I did not really).
We have already asked more than once how to rent this particular room, and if you have the same question, then with regret I will say that it is not a fact that it will give up to the date of your trip.

If not, see below some more similar options for the same price (plus-minutes 10 bucks).
