Well, 2 people for 4 nights and would only need 1 bed so - id say max we wanna spend is 400-500 if we absolutely had to but lower is of course ideal

This thread will be closed soon, but you should look into the ymca or the HI hostel in the upper west side. Your budget won’t allow for much else.

As what others have said, go to r/AskNYC (rule 2, questions, suggestions, recommendations go there), and to avoid having your post removed on that sub, two words: be specific. Give an insight on your budget (you did now), time you’ll travel (also did that now), what specifically you’d want to do or interested in for early summer/late spring? Are you open to taking the subway everywhere (or bus), renting a bike, or walking? The more info, the better!

However as the only mod who doesn’t live in NYC, admittedly getting by as a tourist w/ no connections, no experience, and having a second person with you to try and be as frugal as possible isn’t easy, especially since you’re going on vacation again in Europe soon-ish. There’s other accommodations out there for budgeting, or having to trust another person, but be mindful.

Also helps to check out the individual borough subs, unless if you want to keep this strictly have this Manhattan centric: r/Manhattan, r/Brooklyn, r/Queens, r/StatenIsland, r/Bronx. Also check out r/FoodNYC for food recommendations.

If possible you could prob get a motel for 4 hours to just sleep for around $60-$100 or $100-$120 a night some places..good luck
