With an array of dormitories and private rooms, this unpretentious and popular, budget-friendly hostel makes a visit to one of the most expensive cities on the planet feel affordable. On the edge of East Williamsburg and trendy, industrial Bushwick, it has high ceilings, hardwood floors and eclectic furnishings rather than piled-high bunk beds. There’s a fully equipped guest kitchen, complimentary tea and coffee, and parking, too. Brooklyn institution Roberta’s dishes up pizza and drinks just around the corner. Or walk half an hour down the road to LunÀtico to dance the night away to folk and jazz until the early hours.
Dorm rooms from £44,

Arlo Williamsburg Hotel

Room with a view: the Arlo Williamsburg Hotel

Searching for a room with a view? Well, look no further. Many of the 147 rooms at this hotel have floor-to-ceiling windows looking out across Manhattan. There’s also a vast rooftop pool and bar – you’ll have a hard time finding a better spot from which to survey the skyline. Teddy’s Bar and Grill is round the corner, a perfect spot for people-watching. Or try Rocka Rolla if a dive bar is what you’re craving. To explore Brooklyn, free-to-use bicycles are available on request. Else, Bedford Avenue Metro station is just a few minutes walk away, ride the L-train a single stop and you’re in Manhattan.

There are 93 minimalist rooms at NU Hotel in downtown Brooklyn, each decorated individually. Free breakfast, bikes and on-site fitness centre are among its amenities. But it’s the location that really sets this boutique hotel apart from its competitors. All corners of Brooklyn are in easy reach, as is the rest of New York City. It’s a short walk up to Dumbo where there’s photo-ops aplenty, from there you can walk across the iconic Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan, or jump on a short ferry. The New York City Transit museum is well worth a visit. Hungry? Hit Court Street Grocers for great sandwiches, Yemen Café for Middle Eastern fare, or eat like a local and pop down to Gus’s Chop House – a perfect neighbourhood spot, where every dish is delicious.
