Unbeatable location for the price. Very friendly staff, got a great night's sleep, clean accommodations and facilities. The city is noisy, so bring a pair of squishy earplugs. Come prepared to meet new people and ask a lot of questions. There are interesting people here.

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York
