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 times 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. Two kitchens, a dining room and a lounge complement our common areas. They are open from 7 am to 11 pm, in consideration to our good neighbors.


Our guests also enjoy:

FREE WI-FI throughout the entire property. Desktop computers and printer are also available in the lounge for a fee.

FREE continental breakfast, served from 8 am to 10 am. You will be welcome to enjoy a variety of bagels, cereal, fresh fruits, coffee, milk and tea.

FREE pizza on Wednesday evenings. Our “All You Can Eat” pizza event has been our tradition since our opening.

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.

Luggage storage is available for an additional fee ($4 - $5).

Check in starts at 3PM.

Check out is no later than 12 PM NOON.

    Fabulous

    14 Jul 2018
    Very affordable and in a very good location of downtown manhattan. Staff could have been nicer, and the breakfast was a bit depressing (dry bagel, one piece of fruit) but the rooms were tidy and the bed was comfortable and they provided a towel. They also provide lockers in your room, but they’re not much use without a lock.

    Hidden fees (2 of them), overpoliced common spaces, and the rudest check-in person I've encountered made this perhaps the worst property I've stayed in, ever. It felt downright dystopian.
