Property Information

The Chelsea International Hostel is one of the largest independent Hostels in New York City, operating since 1992. We are located in Chelsea, a prime location in the heart of Manhattan. From here our guests can walk to most of the attractions NYC has to offer. Highline Park is only 2 blocks away. Follow the lights and arrive in Times Square after a 15-minute walk. But if you prefer to ride the subway, feel free to hop on any of the many subway lines that serve us (A, C, E, F, 1, 2, 3). You can get virtually anywhere in the city in just a few minutes. Our simple, functional rooms can sleep one to four guests in single beds (in single, shared and private twin rooms) or double-size beds (in private double-bed rooms). We do not use bunk beds in our rooms. Every room is air-conditioned during the summer months. Most rooms will share bathrooms down the hall and the bathrooms are cleaned constantly. Every floor in any of our eight buildings has a bathroom; most of the times there is no waiting in line to use the bathrooms. Our guests love to gather in the outdoor courtyard, such a rare space in an urban area like NYC. A kitchen and a dining room complement our common areas. They are open from 8 am to 8 pm, in consideration to our good neighbors. Hotel taxes are not included in the rates. NYS, NYC Sales Tax: 14.75%. Occupancy Taxes: $3.50 per person per night. These will be added to your balance at check in.
