As two 24 year olds on vacation in New York, this place was perfect. Right in mid-town we were able to walk to every single thing that we wanted to see and do: sights, museums, restaurants, comedy clubs, bars, and shopping. The best part: at the end of a long day, it was very east to get back to. Do the Chelsea specifically for its location. Four walls, a bed, and a door that locks. What else could you ask for when you will spend no time inside it. It was clean and the employees helpful.


An excellent Hostel to stay. Mr Lucciano is very kind with guests.

Paying for luggage storage seems to be a money grabbing exercise, especially after the high cost of a room. Money spent on free pizza would be better spent on renovation works.
