There are some very nice hostels in Manhattan. Most have private rooms available. Check the link below.

Just because someone is young and solo-traveling doesn't mean they want to stay @ hostels...


Maybe it's something the OP isn't into.


I do think Manhattan is where he should stay though as opposed to NJ. It's more accessible to everything and, it's fun to just be like right in the center of it all.


Plus subways run all night and as much as I hate them, they are pretty convenient.

Have you looked at rooms in Brooklyn/Queens?

I agree there are very inexpensive AirBNBs in the outer boroughs in safe areas and easily accessible to the city via Subway or even Uber/Lyft, unlike NJ transit, why NJ?

Okay, so NJ is not a recommendation.
I've looked in Brooklyn too and there are interesting appartments, so this is also an option.
Some rooms in NJ have a beautiful view of the skyline that's the reason why I'm asking about an appartment in NJ.

By all means do a daytrip to Hoboken, NJ - some of the best views and the town is fun with lots of shops, restaurants, bars, cute brunch places... take a walk along the river to view the skyline, spend some time in Sinatra Park... the only reason I say don't stay there @ night is the lack of transportation options running late night to NJ.


Also you are 18... here you need to be 21 for bars, so keep that in mind.


Brooklyn could be a good bet. The subways run all night to the outer boros.

I recommend Hi New York international hostel. Even is a bit far and is in Harlem, you'll find bunch of travelers just like yourself, is easy to meet people and make friends.

I stays there a few nights when I was looking for rooms to rent when I first came here.

I wouldn't be too worried about the view if you plan on traveling around the city and seeing different sites. Plenty of places to get a view of the city from when you're making your way around. I'd stick to places within walking distance of the subway. If you're unsure of the location in terms of safety, just ask someone about the area. Then you can stay out without worrying about getting back before the last bus/train/whatever.

Harlem isn't the best of areas... better than it used to be but I would not walk around there @ night by myself. Granted I'm a woman, maybe it's different for a guy...
