    Bright colors lure in the young traveler to this hotspot hostel in Times Square-- right next to the Nederlander Theater ("Newsies" is currently playing here; past shows include the original "Rent"). Equity Point Hotel is from a chain of hostels around the world that aims to provide a good experience for budget-conscious travelers looking to make the most of their time in the city. The hotel itself will help plan activities or assist in acquiring theater tickets, and offers a continental breakfast every morning. Simple and sparse bunk bed rooms are nothing to write home about, but the bar and lounge area on the first floor is tempting even for locals-- another perk of staying here! New Yorkers out for a night at the theater and travelers converse over drinks or can sit and read on the comfy couches during the day.

    This hostel chain is located in the heart of Times Square. Everywhere you step outside you will be surrounded by other travelers and have access to many theatres and shops and people enticing you to go to one show or the other.

    A bit of advice: this place is quite popular and tend to get booked up so if you are thinking of staying here, best do it earlier rather than later. Also, remember a blanket because they charge $2 per blanket. And request a hair dryer if you need it because it's not guaranteed. This is a great pit stop for a group of active travelers if you don't mind some small spaces and bunk beds. They do provide the basics: wifi, continental breakfast (get up early because they stop serving at 10 am), a towel and individual safes.
