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).

Overview

Located in central Manhattan, the Chelsea International Hostel is a great place to rest your head after taking a bite out of the Big Apple. We'll make sure you're well fed with a free breakfast every morning and our famous all-you-can-eat pizza night. In hot summer months, the air con will keep you cool and you'll be able to get to know other guests in our communal courtyard – a rare bonus here in NYC! It’s open from 7am and closes again at 11pm to make sure everyone gets a good night’s sleep.

Location

You'll find us in one of New York's most vibrant and trendy neighbourhoods, just two blocks from High Line Park and a 15-minute stroll from Times Square. Chelsea is packed with speakeasy bars, Instagram-ready restaurants and hot spots like the Gansevoort Market and Gotham Comedy Club. We're served by lots of subway lines too (A, C, E, F, 1, 2, 3), so it's easy to get around when you're looking to spend a day further afield.

Rooms and Dorms

Our functional dorm rooms come with all the essentials and they sleep up to four people. There are bathrooms on every floor and some of the private rooms have en-suites. And don't worry about climbing onto the top bunk in the middle of the night: all our beds are standard singles or doubles, so everyone gets prime position.

Extras and activities

If your data's limited, grab one of our free city maps so you stay on track when you're out and about. Back in the hostel, whip up a snack in our kitchen. Wi-Fi is free and available throughout our hostel, so you can keep your followers posted with photos of New York's iconic landmarks. We've got lockers for valuables in every bedroom so your stuff stays safe: just remember to bring your padlock. And for an extra $4-5, we can store your luggage too.

    Superb

    20 Jul 2019
    The Chelsea International Hostel was such a great stay! The location is nice, the staff were very friendly and very, very accessible. First time in New York and it made it easy! Plus it was during the heat wave and it had air conditioner that was adjustable. Not a 10 due to cleanliness—it was good but not excellent. The bed had some stains under the sheet cover but not too big of a deal. There is limited outlets in a double room, which is to be expected. Very small breakfast, but does the job!

    The private room was very comfortable and had a sink which was nice to have. The shower could have used a more thorough cleaning each day as there was lots of hair everywhere and hooks on the door would have ensured towels and clothes didn’t get wet. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were simple but delicious, maybe offering cream cheese with the bagel would have made it perfect for me. All in all I would stay here again.

    Nice clean rooms. Comes with a locker in your room which is great. Linens and towel included. Toilets and showers are small. The shower could have used a shelf for soap, etc. Room had an AC unit which was a lifesaver. Sinks are only in the rooms and not in shared bathrooms, so don’t forget hand soap!! Staff were very friendly. Bags can be stored in basement lockers for $4 (and up for > 24 hours).

    Just needed a place to sleep for the night in Manhattan. This place was affordable and centrally located. It's a no-frills experience. The room was bare with metal bunks and a thin mattress. It also had a sink, and a (clean) bathroom was just a few steps down the hall. The property is located on a cross street across from a police station, so safety wasn't really an issue. I'd definitely stay here again for a (relatively) cheap place to crash in Manhattan. Oh, and the AC worked great!

    It was better than I expected and will stay there again. It brought me back to dorm days as far as the basic rooms but that is totally fine! The included breakfast is nice and not even hotels offer breakfast sometimes, so for the cheap price for being in the city - WELL WORTH IT, especially when I had a private room!

    Great location: very close to the subway, but also easy enough to walk to many landmarks and see manhattan. Breakfast provided was generous. Staff were friendly. The facilities were old and not in the best condition, however they were functional and clean. Good hostel for the price.

    Very Good

    08 Jul 2019
    Excellent location and very clean. I stayed in a 4 people en-suite and 2 people rooms. They are not designed to be efficient: NO individuals lamps by the bed, NO individual outlets, NOT enough hooks, NO shelves or minimal. For the space that is available they could do a much more efficient design. The breakfast is basic: one bagel, one fruit, cereal and coffee/milk/juice/. The common area is very small. You can compensate that with the backyard depending on the season you visit.

    Good place to stay if you're looking for something cheap on New York. The rooms are small and a little bit old, but fully functional and comfortable. I had a room with a window to the street, and it can get a little bit noisy in the morning.
