Airbnb: BOD has used Airbnb within the U.S. and internationally with positive experiences. They have three options: shared rooms (example: you'd sleep in the living room on the host's couch or futon), private rooms, or the entire apartment. Former guests' reviews can be your guide. For a $25 discount, please email us at events@BeyondOrganicDesign.com. Otherwise, click HERE.
Couchsurfers: Not into hotels or hostels? You can crash on someone's couch---and it's free! Click HERE to know more.
Homestays: Are you comfortable sleeping on a floor or a couch of someone personally vetted by BOD? We have some hosts available. Please remember, however, that events can begin as early as 8:30 am and homestays can be a 30-minute to one-hour subway ride from any event.
Whatever your idea of fun is, New York City and and its surrounding area have so much to offer!
