5 Affordable Airbnbs in New York

Affordable Airbnbs in New York

If you’re wanting to stay in an affordable Airbnb in New York, I have one word for you: Brooklyn. I’m sure there’s plenty of wonderful apartments that are available in Manhattan. But if you want to stay somewhere that doesn’t leave your bank account empty, head over the Brooklyn Bridge.

Brooklyn has long been happening and chic, featuring a wonderful bar, restaurant and art scene that should be a big part of your visit. And when it’s time to head towards Manhattan? It’s only 15 minutes away on the subway from most locales.

Here’s my pick of affordable Airbnbs in Brooklyn, all with plenty of high-rating reviews. I’ve included a mix of apartments (including one loft that is justifiably more expensive, as it sleep four) and private rooms. A word of warning: make sure you book well in advance, as these listings can be popular!

 A Chic Loft in Bushwick

This loft in arty Bushwick just oozes chicness. It has an open-plan layout, 12″ ceilings (with plenty of skylights) and exposed brick walls: just like staying in a boutique hotel without the price tag. And while some of the other options here are private rooms, with this you get the entire loft, complete with kitchen. Located just metres from a supermarket and plenty of 24 hour restaurants and diners, you won’t go hungry. Plus it’s only 5 minutes to the subway station and across to Manhattan. Hosted by Giovani, there’s one bed plus the option of using the sofa bed to sleep up to 4 people. (Meaning it’s even family friendly.)

A Bright Petite Studio on the Edge of Bushwick

When you look at a photo of this studio apartment, what you see is what you get. It’s rather small, and doesn’t even have a proper kitchen, but it’s all your own space and quite affordable (making availability scarce). It is nice and bright though, and close to multiple train lines. Plus the host has set up a makeshift kitchen, complete with fridge, microwave and coffee maker.

? Dog-friendly: This Airbnb allows dogs. (Double check before booking!)

A Cozy Studio in Park Slopes

This studio in the district of Park Slopes is situated on the other side of Brooklyn, not far from Prospect Park. It’s also mere seconds from a train station, making it easy to get to anywhere in Brooklyn or Manhattan. At first you’ll notice there’s no bed: that’s because it contains a pull-out sofabed, with assurances that the latest replacement is very comfy. It’s a cozy and stylish space.

A Funky Room in Bed-Stuy

Bed-Stuy (short for Bedford-Stuyvesant) is a blossoming part of Brooklyn and the location of this funky apartment belonging to the delightful Bridgett and her cat. Decorated in a retro, thrift-shop finds and art, it’s a wonderful introduction to mid-20th century Americana. One of four bedrooms, this private room has the advantage of its own private entrance (meaning no disturbing the host after a late night adventure). Plus there’s a mini fridge and coffee/tea station. The lounge room and bathroom are shared, and it’s essential that you’re cat-friendly. It’s located just 5 minutes from the G train.

A Stylish Room in a Williamsburg Penthouse

Williamsburg is located right across the Williamsburg Bridge from lower Manhattan, meaning it has a five star rating for convenience. This private room is located in a gorgeously decorated penthouse apartment. It comes complete with roof access to view the skyline and beautiful Manhattan sunsets. The host Martin is an old-hand at the Airbnb game. He had already rented out one bedroom for quite a while, before re-decorating and also renting this room. Be warned that there is no window, but there is plenty of light through the sky-light. It also has its own air-conditioning unit. Plus there’s an Apple TV with Netflix and HBO Now, for when you’re too tired to sightsee anymore.
