A cheap hostel near Madison Square Garden

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 3, 2008

I stayed 3 nights at the Manhattan Inn in January 2008.
It was not the best hostel I 've ever stayed in, however it was a cheap centrally located accomadation in New York (33$/night with breakfast).

Pros :
- Location is convenient close to Madison Square Garden, Penn Station (for Amtrack trains) and Port Authority (bus terminal). You can easily walk to Times Square (about 20 mn).
- Clean room, with ensuite bathroom and TV.
- Staff was helpful

Cons :
- We were two people in a 4 bed room. It was ok for us, however I think that for 4 people + the luggage it would have been really small.
- The heating was way too hot during the night !
- Bunk beds were a bit old and shaking

The Manhattan Inn - Chelsea

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

The hostel is not bad. It is located very conveniently 1 block from Penn Station in Chelsea, which is a decent area...near Broadway, Times Square, Macy's, and 34th Street shopping. Easy access to all parts of the city with the Subway as well.

The hostel itself is quite clean, which is all you can ask for in New York! We got a private room, which was extremely small, but clean, and faced 7th Ave. It was quite loud on Saturday night, but what can you expect?? The free breakfast was standard muffin/bagel and coffee, enough to get you going, and the staff were friendly enough.

I would recommend this place, as I am not sure how clean other places are, but was happy with the cleanliness of this place.

Unique Quality: The bathroom was the size of a closet, and included a toilet, sink and shower. Amazing use of space!!
Close to many cool places in Chelsea, and especially the subway.

Directions: In Chelsea, one block down from MSG/Penn Station.

Cheap and Decent Accomodation

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

I thought this place was well worth its price - every dorm room has their own ensuite bathroom. They have maids that clean up the place everyday. Price of the room also includes breakfast 7-10am - nothing fancy, mind you, but good enough (bagels, muffins, fruit, OJ, coffee, tea) to fill you up for the morning ahead.

Location was great. Although for the light sleepers, I was in a dorm right next to 30th street and it was pretty noisy. Other than that, I think for travellers looking for hostel, I'll rate this hostel as one of the good ones I've stayed in!

We stayed for a week at the begining of July 2005, our room was a double with an ensuite and payed $100 Australian a night total (booked through STA Travel)

The room was small but had a TV and double bed as well as an ensuite and in room phone for recieving calls. Previous comments I read complained about noise but I didn't have any issues as the windows appeared double glazed. It was very hot an humid all week but we were able to keep the room like a freezer thanks to the Air-con. The ensuit bathroom was very very small (see photo) but had a shower and toilet and was cleaned daily (maid also collected rubbish but didn't do linnen or towels). Adjusting the hot water in the shower was a fine art perfected only on the last days, it often changed dramatically. Very generous breaky was available downstairs with bagels, rolls and cereal, aswell as OJ, coffee and tea to drink. The owners were of South American origin speaking latino spanish and portugese (or what sounded like it). There were a mix if guest from South America, Scandinavia and France and a few English speakers thrown in.

Would stay there again!

Unique Quality: The location was good as it was right near Penn Station (on the A, C, E metro lines). There wasn't much to eat in near area, but a quick train ride downtown solved that problem and there was also a 24hr deli downstairs with food and drinks (beers from $1!)

Lowest price accommodation in NYC?

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 19, 2005

Spartan, but the price is right if you have a group that does not mind dormitory style accomodation.

All rooms have their own bathroom, TV and phone, even the dormitory style rooms.

Unique Quality: Bunk beds, just like summer camp!

Price for Dorms: 4 People $36, 6 People $34, 8 People $32 including tax and breakfast!
