Pros: awesome location (a block from penn station, 20 min walk from Times Square, 10 min walk from high line park, near many subway lines). Service awesome- all people were super friendly and extremely helpful. Also the rooms are very clean and the bed was really comfy. Also it was pretty quiet in the morning (no street noises woke us...

We stayed at the Chelsea Star hotel on our first trip to NYC. The service was good and the rooms were well maintained. We stayed in one of the deluxe rooms with a private bathroom. We are glad we picked that option as restrooms in general in NYC are a commodity. They are far and few as far as public... More

Very handy - close to Madision Square Garden, so close to the Subway, Trains (airport - New Jersey) and the Metrobus (coaches to many major cities Philadelphia, Boston, Washington etc. Rooms are very basic - Bed and small TV. No chair or table so should you decide to eat in your room, then you'll have to balance everything on your... More

I was a bit skeptical at first about booking a hostel for my trip to New York - I'm so used to star rated hotels that I was really hoping I wouldn't be disappointed.. And I wasn't :) The hotel/hostel is situated right opposite Penn Station which is one of the main Subway stations in New York so you can... More

The dorm room was really basic and quite expensive. But its Manhatten in the heart of NewYork so I guess its okay'... The terrace is quite nice and the staff was really friendly and welcoming. good times in NYC.
