Review №1


Pros:Clean rooms and bathroom.Nice little cafe downstairs with plenty of tables to sit at.Friendly staffCons:There are a Lot of younger people. And when I say young, I mean 16-18 year olds and even younger than that. They were extremely loud on the evening, quite distracting when I just wanted to chill. I feel like the hostel should have an 18+ age restriction.Also the cafe closes really early too. Id often get back around 2pm and it was already shut for the day so its only available in the morning time which is a bit inconvenient.Overall, a pleasant stay. I travelled on my own and met a couple of other friendly solo travelers, however most people stick to themselves so if you are relying on meeting others then Id recommend somewhere else. Friendly and helpful staff. Also its a great location too! A short subway ride to times square/Broadway and a short walk to Central Park which was perfect.

Great place to stay in NYC for cheap. On the 1, so its going everywhere. Not the best place to meet people and have fun but its fine. Clean almost everywhere, I just doubt about the sheets : I had hairs and others small stuff on it, hopefully it was not bed bugs. Staff is pretty friendly ! Cool place

Surprisingly nice place, big common area and even has a theatre. Nice bathrooms. Easy access, safe neighborhood.Bring the following stuff:- a lock for your locker- ear plug because some people come in really late and locker door is loud- eye mask because people turn on their light when come in lateHighly recommend

Oh my god just stay here. Writing this review after checking into Chelsea International Hostel and realizing how good I had it….This hostel is AMAZING!Elevator. COMFY beds. The top bunk made no noise as I clambered up there. Water filter. Stylish and updated. MANY common areas. There’s a freaking breakfast cafe inside!!! I cannot believe I wanted to try a different hostel… just stay here!!

I had a very nice stay at the hostel.It was clean and the location of the hostel is very good! It is only a few minutes walk to the subway and the Central Park is not far away too. Also it is not too expensive compared to other accommodations in NYC.They also have a nice patio where you can spend the evenings with the other visitors.Only the line for the check-in was very long, but I would definitely recommend the hostel for a stay in New York City!

For a hostel its not bad. The dorms are clean and the staff is friendly. The coffee is pretty good for how cheap it is (compared to nearby coffee shops). If youre a light sleeper you might not get a lot sleep as people come in and out of the rooms often. The beds are okay. Probably about the same as a college dorm.

Stayed for 3 nights and overall a very good experience. The dorm was 10 beds but very spacious, did not feel cramped was clean daily and bathrooms were generally very clean! All staff very friendly to! The reception was always very very busy with people arriving so had to wait at times. They have lockers to store your stuff before and after check in, it was a pretty complicated system and half were out of order. Nice terrace area and social areas. Overall really good and would stay again

Only been here about 1/2 an hr.the staff is pleasant. Clean building. Very cold maybe too cold ac. You can make and store your own food here. That is nice. They also have breakfast and lunch here. Not bad for solo travelers and the rates are great for NYC

Chose this place based on proximity to the park and price. Stayed in a private room which was great if you are into hostelling. We had a queen bed ,plus a set of bunks. And a private bathroom. Lots of space. There is a TV and mini fridge which was very convenient. The main kitchen area is very nice but the fridges was a disaster compared to other hostels weve stayed in. It was pretty noisy in the hostel but that was likely due to large groups of kids from Europe. If you are coming to NYC on the cheap this is a great option. Very easy to get around from here. Would stay here again for sure.

This was a super comfortable space. We had our own locker in our room without extra cost (bring a padlock), the food and coffee its good, nice and bilingual service (Spanish and English). Its a safe space to stay just a few blocks from Central Park. Its not cheap but for the location and clean rooms and bathrooms its worth it.
