Living Cheap - Tiny NYC Hotel Tour ($30/night)!

  • Published on Feb 22, 2018
  • This is a tour of a $30 NYC minimalist hotel (capsule like) in Lower Manhattan (Chinatown). I hope this video shows you guys that living cheap in NYC is possible! The tiny hotel / capsule / pods are 25 square feet (2.3sqm), which is very similar to Tokyo capsule hotels, but for me it turned out to be quite spacious. I never got claustrophobic, but in enclosed spaces everyones opinion varies. I also found this hotel / apartment tour so cool because I have only seen Tiny Hotel / capsule hotel tours in Japan! insta: iamlivingbobby

    Never live in this hotel that has worse reviews. Finding a hostel in New York City is the best to stay.

    Seems a good way to visit a city like NYC for a few days just need a place to lay your head at night and grab a shower.

    The only problem I have with this room is that it's made for short people. I bet you can't stretch your legs all the way while lying on the bed, which is not cool, especially if you're tired...

    A guy in another video stayed at this place and ended up with bed bug bites. He thought it was clean and gave it a good review at first. How do you avoid stuff like that, or head lice, or something worse? Doesn't that concern you?

    There isn't even a general for "most houses" in terms of internet speed. As soon as you get more than a mile from any major interstate or more than 15 miles from a city, you're in very spotty territory. I'm talking not even breaching double digits on your download speed. Further out than that and you are lucky if there are internet providers other than satellite. Other than the densely populated areas most places, if they have connectivity, it's garbage quality.
