A cosy, happy, friendly place. Very cheap and basic but that's all you need. Just round the corner from the amazing Tick Tock diner and a short walk to Times Square, Madison Square Garden and the Empire State building. Just pray you don't get a snorer in your dorm! I actually preferred the other location at East 12th St, but...

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...

Also the next day we could leave all our stuff in the Hostel and could pick it up in the eve...

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...

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
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.
