This was so unusual!
The rooms are like ship cabins and around 50 sq feet.
It is an inexpensive alternative to pricey NYC hotels.
An important detail is that you share bathrooms with other people so they are down the hall.
If you are ok with that then this is a trendy, interesting alternative.Recommended for:

Originally built as a hotel for sailors, The Jane still maintains that nautical charm. The entire staff is always dressed dashingly in red bellhop uniforms, and the lobby looks like something out of a Titanic movie set. The hallways are narrow, dark and wood-paneled, like those of a ship. When I entered the hotel, I felt like I stepped into the 1920s. First off, though it's about a 8-10 minute walk from the subway, it is right along the West Side Highway and Hudson River, so it's somewhat removed from the rest of the neighborhood. Then the bellhop leads you to your "cabin," which is, in fact, reminiscent of a ship's cabin. There are two types of cabins: standard (single) and bunk bed (for two people). They're incredibly small, at 50 sq. ft., so you might feel a touch of claustrophobia - especially if you stay in a bunk bed cabin. They're wood-finished, cozy, and brightly lit—but that doesn't help to make it feel much bigger. These rooms are a pretty good deal at $125, but if you can afford it, the "captain's cabin," which costs about twice as much, is definitely worth it. They are much more spacious, at 250 sq. ft., and come with a private bathroom with marble sink and a rainfall showerhead.Recommended for:

The Jane gives you a tiny room with a shared bathroom at less than half the price of other hotel rooms in the city. It's by the river and four blocks from the 14th St A/C/E/L stop and a couple of blocks from the bottom of the Highline Park. Across the street is Hudson Park with its shared use path.
The hotel offers free bikes so you can explore the city, and there's a small restaurant next to the lobby.
Although this is on the edge of the city, there were plenty of cabs coming by or within a block.

The Jane Ballroom used to be one of the hippest places in town. Even after the glory faded, a bunch of the cool crowd still would go there. I recently went back for two parties over the course of one weekend and as soon as 11:30 hit, the place is a douche bag mob scene. The bars are completely mismanaged and under staffed, resulting in lines 4 deep. Better option for a decent cocktail and music would be Bathtub Gin, or Swine.

This is a great place to stay in New Your if you are trying to travel on a budget. The rooms are not huge, but the Jane has a great vibe and a good restaurant on the premises. The location is perfect for those wanting to be in the West Village.

With 6 floors of expected small, vintage- style rooms, this hotel has been around for a while. Nowadays it is most recognized by New Yorkers for its club on the 1st floor, which is always a good time. However I would not suggest staying in the hotel simply for entry to this hot spot.
Café Gitane serves Moroccan-inspired food at lunch and dinner, and the Jane Ballroom offers innovative cocktails and drinks in the evenings. Complimentary wireless Internet access is available throughout the building. Other amenities include a 24-hour front desk, multilingual staff, and free parking. Bicycles are available for complimentary rental.
Guestrooms share bathrooms. Amenities include bathrobes, slippers, and complimentary toiletries. In addition to complimentary wireless Internet access, guestrooms offer phones, iPod docking stations, and voice mail. LCD televisions have cable channels and DVD players. Air conditioned rooms also include ceiling fans, electronic/magnetic keys, irons/ironing boards, and clock radios. Guests may request hypo allergenic bedding.
