I love visiting New York City and go as often as I can afford it. This time, November 2016, I tried something I’d never done before, stayed in a women’s dormitory at the Blue Moon Boutique 100 Orchard St. on the Lower East Side – 5 or six women to a room with its own bathroom with tub and shower. They also have regular hotel rooms. I recommend it. The room rate was $US76.60 per night including taxes. P.S. I read that these “hostel” type accommodations are now being opened in many cities. Look for them. If any are like this one the value is excellent. (Jan 2017)
