Off we go - we're straight to the station and not sorry to leave that hostel behind at all.
We board around 8am the first part of our journey pre-customs is business class and it's really spacious sadly, they sold out of those tickets for the latter part though.
We arrive at customs, the process is quick and easy and we get through no problem, when we move to economy were pleasantly surprised - it's cosy enough and not a bad journey despite being around 13 feckin hours.
By 10pm we've arrive at New York's Penn Station - so excited!! We decide to Uber it to our hostel we're so shattered - so it's a quick 10-minute ride to the YMCA Vanderbilt where we check in and crash.
Thankfully it is clean, and safe with 24-hour security we feel much more at ease, although if you're on a proper holiday it's really not going to impress - for travelling it's cheap and cheerful, really Central and safe. Night night New York, you might not sleep but we need to.
