Howdy! I'm planning an impromptu research trip, but I'm looking for a place for me and my boyfriend to stay. I thought maybe one of you might do the airbnb thing, or know someone who would rent us their extra room for about 3 nights. I have some cash, but not a lot. Comment, too, if you happen to know of a hostel or a cheap motel you can recommend. I've never stayed anywhere in the five boroughs, so I don't know what to look for. Thanks!
