As far as location goes, Chelsea International Hostel has got everything. Three blocks from the subway with connections downtown, upper west side, midtown - you can basically get anywhere from there. Breakfast and towels are now included which is great. The rooms however are really, really small, and for some reason staff starts cleaning, and quite loudly so, at 6'o'clock in the morning. The walls are paper thin, you hear everything: people leaving, using the bathroom, talking in the hall.

the staff was very unfriendly and little helpful, the common area is on the street ,only place with wifi , coffee was the worst breakfast I ever made, a bagel dry and hard, just a tiny portion of butter and other minimal portion of marmalade , without any repetition and much less over a portion or bread . The room was clean, but either too hot (they turn the heater on high) or too cold (no covering), no middle ground. if you are like me with luggage , will suffer, no elevator, many stairs.

It met our needs perfectly for this trip! As a young couple on a travel budget, this was the only hostel we could find with a double bed, which was perfect. Good value for our money, and the location was great. Minutes walk from shops, bars, and subway, right beside a police station so very safe. The room and amenities were very basic, but the point of the trip was to be out and exploring, not hanging out in our hotel. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it for anyone .

The hostel was overpriced for what it was. The location was good though. The staff for not very friendly or helpful and at times quite rude, reading newspapers or watching tv while guests waited at the desk. There was no sinks in some of the bathrooms and the internet did not work. Overall I feel I would have been better off to pay a little more at a hotel than stay here.
