    Hostel

    by

    I have not stayed here, or in a hostel in NYC....but every time I have looked into staying at a hostel in NYC it seems like most of them are way up-town where things can be a bit crazy.
    I would suggest staying here based on the location.

    Unique Quality: when looking up this hostel just follow the site.

    Directions: really close to penn station & the empire state building

    Chelsea Center Hostel

    by

    i stayed here for 4 nights back in april 2005. it was fine but the hostel is just a couple of divisions full of bunk beds. staff is ok, they are visitors that get free bed for working. at the time i was there there were 2 spanish and 1 irish girl.

    bath rooms are clean and the shower is big. you can use internet for $1 dolar hour.

    Unique Quality: this hostel is well located and you can easily get to downtown. this is located on 12th street.
    The Chelsea Center is the smallest and one of the oldest hostels in New York.

    taken from their website:
    "The Chelsea Center offers a unique hostel experience in New York. We provide a relaxed and open atmosphere for people to meet and share their experiences. Because we are small, it is easy to get to know the other guests - around the breakfast table or when you come home in the evening and relax with a cup of tea in the common-room.

    Since the Chelsea Center opened in 1981, it has constantly been owner-operated. The two owners Heidi and Hanna as well as their friendly multi-lingual staff are easy approachable and open for all your questions and inquiries. We have a lot of experience in what we do and use it to make your stay in New York as pleasant and comfortable as possible.

    Our shared rooms are spacious and quiet. Each bed has it's own little night lamp so that you can read or write at night without disturbing the others. We don't have a curfew and think you should enjoy what New York has to offer as long as you want to - but once you get back home to the hostel the people who want to sleep have the priority. A good night's sleep is what you pay for and we do everything necessary to make sure that you get what you pay for."

    Rates

    March 1 - October 31 $33 per night

    * Greenwich Village (10 min.)
    * Soho, Chinatown and Little Italy (15 min.)
    * United Nations (20 min.)
    * Empire State Building (30 min.)

    Small, Friendly, Cheap.

    Simple but very comfortable. Run by people who take thier job serously and a place where you make friends and feel safe.

    Unique Quality: Street Level
    Two cool locations

    Directions: One in Chelsea and one in the East Village

    picture is nicked off thier web site but I have nothing to do with the actual business.

NY can be a very expensive city (it depends where you come from). If you just want to visit the city without luxury you can go to CHELSEA HOSTEL. Just to go to rest or sleep, or to stay in the court meeting people of around the world.

Hostel in New York with good location - recommendations?

by Hegenorway

We are 3 friends staying in New Jersey for a week in March, and we are planning to stay 3 nights in New York, and we need to find a cheap hostel or hotel with a good location. Do you have any recommendations?

We would also like tips on where to eat, what to see etc? 3 days isn't much so what is the must-sees??

Have a look at tripadvisor's listings, which also give you reviews on B&Bs, hostels, etc. For three of you, it will likely be cheaper to share a hotel room. Hotels charge per room; hostels charge per person.

Check Ina22Marina's New York City Hotel tip. She was very highly impressed by the Chelsea Center Hostel and I have never come anywhere close to $35 per night for a hotel in NYC. When I was there in December, I heard a lot about it but did not know about it in time to stay there but I hope to do so the next time I am there.

There is one on 55th Street between 9th and 8th Avenue..It's really nice and I think it's Italian or Swiss run.
