Property Description

Remarkably located in the heart of Chelsea, Midtown Manhattan. We are on-site 24/7 to make sure everybody is happy, peaceful and safe. This is a vegetarian place. No smoking, no alcohol, no meat/fish/egg products. No spitting on the floor. We use the profits from the guest rooms here to provide free hot meal for homeless people in the streets of New York City. Our guests are welcome to come to help with the meal distribution. It's a wonderful way to experience the happiness of giving.

Our location in the heart of Chelsea, West Side Manhattan (between 28th and 29th streets) is remarkable: we're within walking distance of Times Square, Penn Station, Madison Square Garden, High-line Park, Central Park, and the world-famous Manhattan Theater District. Subway station is a 2 min walk. This neighborhood is very central and safe. It's known for its unique restaurants, shops, art galleries and theaters. You can get anywhere in the city quickly and easily from here.

Our hostel-style separate pod-rooms are simple, cozy, and very clean. Although small in size they are centered around a spacious common lounge area with free WiFi. Fresh, clean sheets, pillows towels and blankets are there for you. Bringing a pair of flip-flops to use in the bathroom would be a good idea.

    One of the nicer hostels I have stayed at and I have stayed in alot of hostels around the world ! The staff are amazing and so friendly and willing to help Jeremy and Alex. The building is very clean and always has fresh fruit, cereal, bread and milk to enjoy. I loved the lay out which I describe as beehive cells plenty of privacy and some lovely guests made for a fantastic atmosphere. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay and intend to stay again on my next visit as is a short walk to all attractions.

    Really nice staff, positive atmosphere, spotlessly clean and secure, and affordable. The one thing is that the rooms are cubicles with lattice ceilings, so while we were fortunate and it was very quiet, even a person crunching cereal next to our room was audible, not to mention snoring, phone pings, etc. So while we slept fine and they do provide earplugs it is something to know! Also shared bathroom and showers. Oh and they had all these seeds and cookies and fruit for guests to eat.

    So, as many have stated, the accommodations here are basically cubicles. If you are too fat or buff, sleeping on the bed will be challenging for you. Likewise, you shouldn't be too much taller than 6 feet (180 cm). With that said, the bed was comfy enough and the decorations and ambiance of the place are quite nice, peaceful and comfortable. Snacks, apples, bananas, and cereal are always available for you to eat and everything in the common spaces (bathroom and sitting room) were kept clean.

    This place was fully booked out when I arrived. Not sure why HostelWorld advertises spaces, but it was full and I have not been reimbursed. At the actual hostel they were helpful in helping me find a vacancy somewhere else.

    Apartment floor with wooden grids as rooms. Rooms the size of the tiny bed. No ceiling on the grid so can literally hear everything. They provided me with earplugs but it was still so loud. Shared bathroom with toilets and shower in the same room which I personally didn't like.

    The "individual" rooms are not real rooms. There is no ceiling, so noises are a big issue at night when people snores. Space is the other problem. The room is less than 2m by 1.5 m, so very uncomfortable. The same applies to the 3 toilets and 2 showers. Staff does not provide much help other than doing their surveillance job. Location is great, very central and walking distance of the main attractions in Manhattan. It is safe and you stuff can be left in the room without worries.

    The place is simply a mess.Private rooms, they are renting a box so small that you cannot open your arms (literally and I'm 5'9')and since there is no ceiling you hear everyone snoring,farthing (with smell included) due the distance between boxes.The showers are so dirty that you have to step over hair and who knows what else showering with drops of water.Security,they have the policy that at 11am they open your room and take your personal belongings and put them in the office.Not recommended.

    I was placed on an all-male floor where I asked for a more secure area for women. I used the only bathroom on the floor and there was someone trying to peek in between the stalls. It felt unsafe and the only plusses are the free breakfast and knowing that part of the proceeds will hopefully feed the needy. Would not return nor recommend.
