Property Description

The Chelsea International Hostel is one of the largest independent Hostels in New York City, operating since 1992. We are located in Chelsea, a prime location in the heart of Manhattan. From here our guests can walk to most of the attractions NYC has to offer. Highline Park is only 2 blocks away. Follow the lights and arrive in Times Square after a 15-minute walk. But if you prefer to ride the subway, feel free to hop on any of the many subway lines that serve us (A, C, E, F, 1, 2, 3). You can get virtually anywhere in the city in just a few minutes.

Our simple, functional rooms can sleep one to four guests in single beds (in single, shared and private twin rooms) or double-size beds (in private double-bed rooms). We do not use bunk beds in our rooms. Every room is air-conditioned during the summer months. Most rooms will share bathrooms down the hall and the bathrooms are cleaned constantly. Every floor in any of our eight buildings has a bathroom; most of the time there is no waiting in line to use the bathrooms.

Our guests love to gather in the outdoor courtyard, such a rare space in an urban area like NYC. A kitchen, a dining room, and a lounge complement our common areas. They are open from 8 AM to 8 PM.

Our guests also enjoy:

FREE WI-FI throughout the entire property.
Lockers in the room for your valuables. You need to provide your own padlock (medium-size, thick).
Linen and towels (one bath towel per guest) are provided.

    I highly recommend the stay at this hostel. The location is wonderful, very safe, and near transit. I can walk to everything. The staff is always incredibly helpful and kind. The facilities are great too, the kitchens are large and plenty of room in the fridges to store your food.

    Positive impression , good deal. Nice area outside of skyscrapers, close to Chelsea market and High line. Room clean, very minimalist.. Enough just for sleeping in after whole day of exploring NY. Were travelling with friend and had double room just for us with shared bathroom. Very basic breakfast was OK to start the day> bagel, fruit and not so good watery coffee. *but we have not expected much from hostel breakfast.

    I really enjoyed my stay here. The staff are friendly, the hostel is safe and well-located, there is a nice range of amenities on offer. There could be more food on offer at breakfast and none of the lockers in my room were working. Apart from that, I would definitely consider going back to this hostel when I go to New York again.

    Brilliant, safe location! In the winter, prices are very fair, especially for NYC. 1 person private room in Chelsea for around $56 dollars a night is a good deal!! The hostel offers the very basics. You get a breakfast ticket for every day you're at the hostel, which provides you with 1 bagel, one piece of fruit, unlimited cereal/coffee/tea. You are close to the A/C/E line and to Chelsea Market. Bring a lock to put things in your locker if you're in a dorm/want extra security. Will return!

    My stay at the Chelsea International Hostel was overall good. The location is great, super close to the subway and with lots of fun things to do right in the area. I enjoyed having my own space, and the bathroom situation worked out well; I liked having a sink in my room. In terms of cleanliness, it wasn't the cleanest, but it was clean enough. I also wasn't able to meet folks like I wanted to due to the set up of the building. Great wifi as well! Overall, I am happy with my experience.

    The location of the hostel was great, you can walk, cycle or catch the subway into central manhattan; all the basic tourist attractions are located very close. There was a complimentary basic breakfast consisting of a bagel and piece of fruit. The common area was rather small as well as the kitchen, which was very basic. There wasn't much space and the tap water didn't appear drinkable since it came out cloudy. The dorms were basic but good value for money. Overall a very good lowkey place!

    The room i was allocated felt like a prison cell. It is an older building so there is no lift & only very narrow stairs which I had to navigate three flights of with luggage in tow. The shared bathroom facilities was one shower and 1 toilet and were less than ideal. Whilst the location of the hostel is great it is also extremely noisy all night long.

    I mean this place is alright. It just doesn’t feel like a normal hostel. I spent two days there and didn’t see anyone else! So there’s no common areas for people to hangout and get to know each other. Facilities wise everything is fine, rooms are ok, bathroom and showers are super small but clean and decent. It just lacked that hostel atmosphere and at $40usd per night it isn’t super cheap.
