Chelsea International Hostel
Lonely Planet review
Some of the wall murals are liable to keep you up at night - 'The King & I' room especially is not for insomniacs. Whatever you think of the theme paint jobs on most of the rooms, whether whimsical or cheesy, they're certainly more welcoming than you'd expect from the hotel's exterior. The dorms are cozy brick-walled rooms with wood floors.
Our independent authors have visited Chelsea International Hostel and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in New York City.
