It has one room for girls only and a larger one for the rest, with about 15 beds in the basement with no windows which makes the place a little smelly depending on the guests. The mattress could be thicker but the linen are clean. The common room is small, that can be a problem if the hostel is full... More

When we arrived there in December (it was kinda late and freezing cold outside) they automatically offered us tea and coffee and we felt home right away. Also the next day we could leave all our stuff in the Hostel and could pick it up in the eve... More

I've read some reviews of the Chelsea here and I find them a little unfair in their condemnation - I've stayed at the Chelsea three times, once in this location and twice at the old site on E14th Street, and on every occasion, i've had a great time. The best thing about this hostel, both now and in the past,... More

Very well located, the Chelsea center is a small hostel where you can enjoy a friendly and personal atmosphere. The staff is lovely and always ready to help: you will feel really safe. Every morning, a light breakfast is provided, and it's the best moment to get to know people and make new friends. Chelsea center offers then a different... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
