7.Camping Fontain Laborde, Biarritz, France

If you like to surf you ass off, between nightparties, then you have to stay at this great camping spot near the boarder to Spain. Last time I was there, I paid 40€ for 10 days! Lots of girls and happy surfing people! They like to keep this campingspot secret, but I don't know why - it's huge! They have their own restaurant with fucking awsome pizzas and other great diches! In the evening the bar serves great drinks! And the Dj plays Arrested Development with "Everyday People" all night! - I'ts like being on a minifestival! Remember to checkout the photosection!

Be there mid june - late july

8.Résidence les Ancolies, Val Thorens, France

If you are going snowboarding with your buds, this is you dreamhouse. It's not that expensive, if you are 5-6 buddies. It's cozy and every man gets his own room. The appartment has DVD, Stereo, Cable - you fucking name it! And from your bed, you can see your "line" for mañana. You can go direct out on the slope from your bedroom or kitchen! Were there last christmas with the family - was a dream come true!

Anyone staying across from Carnegie Hall in NYC is a suicidal lunatic.

Why is that so bad? - I know it says across the street, but thats not right. It's further down the street. I'm heading towards Manhattan in January - do you have some golden eggs you want to share?

It's tourist infested area, everything within reach is overpriced, the area hideous. All the restaurants suck, no hot women, horse shit from Central Park carriages reeks from the next block, a lot of old people in canes, one of the worst street condition to skate.

pretty accurate, thank you.

Axt, I don't really have NYC bargain hotels, since... well, I live here, so I don't stay in hotels :-) I think you can score a room for $150 in one of Ian Shrager's creations, if you get lucky. http://www.morganshotelgroup.com/

I bascially don't venture upwards of 23rd street, unless I take an occasional trip to Barneys or to Central Park to feed the ducks with my daughter. If you want a cool funky NYC vibe, you'll want to stay downtown.

I like that thing A Ron said in that NYT subculture article how he's so downtown he doesn't even go above Delancy St. Funny shit!

Hahaha, well that area aint that bad either. I have a buddy who has an apartment around Wall St. If I'm not mistaken, there's a Parsons dorm in that vicinity as well. At night this area is like a ghost town, which adds to the character. I've actually gone to a couple of underground parties in this neighborhood.

Yes, Parsons dorm is on Williams/Liberty.

You got it. The only thing with Hudson is that the rooms are tiny (but who cares, you just sleep there), but otherwise it's fun. The party in the lounge gets crazy late into the night. It's steps from the Central Park, and the 2, 3 subway line gets you right into Greenwhich Village/Soho area in 15min. Sign up for TravelZoo newsletter, I constantly see Hudson having specials.

Your Paris entry isn't that inspired but I know how difficult it can be to get a room in Paris sometimes.

Your Barcelona and Vegas entries look interesting, but check out the Hollywood Stars Bungalow in LA - a bargain for US$149.00 per night (3 nights min) and sleeps up to 6!

A real piece of history too for cinephiles.
