This is not a place for those of us who like our space. However, if you are a young adult, struggling writer/journalist, and are traveling to NYC, The Jane is the place for you. It's rooms start at $99 a night and are styled after a ship's cabin—about 50 sq. ft. When it was first completed in 1908 it was called the American Seaman's Friend Society Sailors' Home and Institute, designed by William A. Boring, the architect renowned for Ellis Island’s immigrant station.
Although the rooms are small it comes fully equipped with a single bed, luggage rack, free wireless internet, telephone with voicemail, 23-inch LCD television, DVD player, and iPod dock.
It looks extremely cozy and, if you are staying with a significant other, a fun place to exercise your spooning.
The only drawback—communal bathrooms. Suck it up and remember it can't be as bad as some college bathrooms.
