As a NY hostel in Manhattan, we are in close vicinity to other residential areas, and guests are expected to be respectful of our neighbors and of NYC law including a 21 year old minimum drinking age. Passports are required for check-in (including US citizens) for the safety of all guests. Guests must be at least 18 years old and the maximum stay is 14 days. During holidays, there is a minimum stay of 3 days. A $10 cash deposit is required for check-in for a key deposit.
Check-in time is anytime after 3PM and check-out is 12PM noon. Guests can store luggage in the lockers until rooms are ready or after check-out for a fee. There is no curfew, but common areas are closed from 11PM until 7AM including kitchens, courtyards, and the lounge. No guests or outsiders are permitted in our facilities for the safety and protection of fellow travelers. There are small lockers in the rooms where guests can provide their own padlocks (medium-size, thick) to hold personal items. Chelsea International Hostel is not responsible for personal items.
