  • I regret saying that this was a very disappointing experience. Rooms are old, not cleaned daily, and in some of them the A/C does not work. Several times during the day, there is nobody at the reception - so anybody could enter the hostel without being stopped. There is no mop available for drying the bathroom after taking a shower.

  • This hostel was great. I read bad reviews about it online and was worried it would be bad, but it was in fact, totally great. I wanted to visit New York City on a budget and it was the cheapest place I could find. But seriously, its all you need to have a good place to stay. If you are very picky person and need chocolate on your pillows every night then this is not the place for you. But if you're going to travel and just need a clean, dry, safe place to sleep at night you will be satisfied!

  • In my first room the roof had holes.I could see how it was built and there was missing a lot of cement in depth, the rusty iron building frame!I tried to get to the upper bed because the first was occupied but it was so light that it tilted.I couldn't get up! It should have at least be nailed on the wall!And the worst was that when I closed the door behind me it wouldn't lock!THE DOOR STAYED OPEN IN ALL TIMES!Breakfast is bread, butter, sugar, coffee, milk.Use that money for serious repairs.

  • DONT STAY HERE! When I arrived to the Chelsea hostel they had no-one at reception. I had to wait about an hour before being able to check-in. Turns out there was seldom anyone manning the reception desk, which can be very frustrating. Beds were uncomfortable. Heatings bad. And I had a bag of clothes STOLEN by the staff!! when I called up to find out if they had it, they said they did and then stopped responding to my calls and e-mails. Also there were some junkies there - it's NOT SAFE for kids!

  • There were 3 bathrooms serving one floor, keep in mind that the bathrooms were joined toilets + showers!, serving one floor! We estimate it to be around 40 people sharing 3 bathrooms male and female! This resulted in us not being able to go to the bathroom in the morning, which we think is unacceptable. Aside from that they offered breakfast and was overall fairly clean. But we wouldn't recommend staying there unless the bathroom situation changes.

  • Need to verify charges. I was told that I've been credited for the charge through Hostels so I signed my credit card receipt that shows a full night charged when I checked in. I still didn't see any credit.

  • Nice hotel, very clean, AC in room, only 2 beds are great. In my room was a lot of free space for baggage. As you can read in other comments, there is no elevator but it´s not so far to go up. Internet connection is only at reception. One cons was that the mattres which was really firm and you could easily feel springs inside. And also I would recommend to bring own blanket if you have one, the one in hotel was not really pleasant to touch.
