****

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 six 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. 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 enjoy:

FREE WI-FI throughout the entire property.
Linen and towels (one bath towel per guest) are provided.

    One of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed at! Everything was perfect about the Chelsea Hostel. The location is amazing, right in the centre of Chelsea. There’s a shower and toilet on each floor which is cleaned every morning. Me and my friend shared a 2 bed room so we were able to have a private room with a sink. The staff were wonderful and friendly, we couldn’t have asked for better! Thank you so much!

    Great location and price but it is an old place with steps and key locks that can be finicky. Kitchen not well organized, food not labeled so fridge crowded and not very cheerfully.

    Oh Chelsea Hostel, I’ve stayed here numerous times over the last decade, and I’m almost sentimental about it. However, over the last decade very little has changed, it could definitely use some upgrades. Especially the mattresses/beds are worse now than I remember them. But overall this is one of the most affordable places on all of Manhattan when it comes to private rooms. You have everything you need, and the location is fantastic. I’ll be back, as always.

    Definitely not getting your money’s worth here, but it was the absolute cheapest place I could find in Manhattan. Big reminder: there is NO AIR CONDITIONING and even in early May it was wildly hot. Hard to keep the windows open since the police station is right across the street. There were clumps of hair in the shower drain, but thankfully the shower was warm. There was only one shower and one toilet shared between four rooms but luckily it was never taken while I was staying.

    Very basic, extremely spartan hostel with absolutely no amenities. I would not recommend unless you can not find anything else.
