Often hostels offer a free breakfast and this usually includes a bowl of cereal or maybe some bread for you to toast but I feel on my feet with my Downtown LA accommodation. On my return from camping I'm staying in the same hotel/hostel I booked two weeks previous before heading out on the tent adventure. Sadly I couldn't get the same excellent hotel room deal as before but am in a lovely hostel room and this time I'm not leaving as horrendously early and can take advantage of the breakfast service.
I do eventually get through the madness and catch my flight with no further issues. I'm flying Virgin America LAX to JFK which is around 6 hours but when you add in time zones it mean I'm landing late night so it will have been a long travel day.
Only thing is there won't be a comfy bed to crash in when I get to the other end. In fact I have no accommodation booked at all. This trip is all on a very tight budget and so with my flight landing at midnight EST I decided not to shell out on accommodation for my first night in the city and instead opt for an airport sleepover. I save some pennies and I avoid travelling on the subway system late night.

It many not have been the comfiest sleep but it actually wasn't the worst I've had either. I found my corner, attached myself to my kit and spent my first night in New York City on an airport floor.
