It’s big, it’s crowded, and it’s fashionable and full of excitement. It is New York.
The first thought that may come to mind when visiting New York is shopping. Some of the best hotspots to shop in the world are in The Big Apple.
First things first, you probably need a place to stay, somewhere close to the city centre and cheap enough to not impact on your precious budget. HostelBookers presents a good selection of hotels at friendly prices that definitely fit the bill.
