Located in Manhattan’s Flatiron District, Freehand New York is housed in the former George Washington Hotel—once home to many storied writers, musicians and creatives. Designed by Roman and Williams and featuring custom-commissioned artwork by Bard College students and alumni throughout, we’re revitalizing the artistic community in a historic NY neighborhood.
Chelsea is a prime location in the heart of Manhattan, sitting between Midtown and West Village.
Because the Chelsea International Hostel is served by several subway lines (A, C, E, F, 1, 2, 3), you are just a few minutes away from anywhere in the city.
The neighborhood of Chelsea is a cultured-filled area, with numerous art galleries, stores & restaurants & the Gansevoort Market & Gotham Comedy Club.
Madison Square Garden -15 min walk.

When we arrive, the receptionist charges us a much higher amount than the one booked on your site. We dispute. The receptionist and the manager say they do not know you and have not received a deposit for this reservation and that the prices you offer are fanciful and do not match their reality. So the balance does not correspond at all to the reservation. However, they have 2 reservations in our name but no deposit. For us the story is not very understandable and we are suspicious, because in the end we are left with a plus to pay € 570. We told ourselves: it's a scam, and for a beginning of stay it does not put us in confidence. But what to do ? It was 9pm and we were accompanied by 4 children exhausted by the trip, at least we still had a roof. Today, we are still in doubt, because between the down payment, the deposit and the final payment, it remains confused, and that deserves explanation.

Staff - very friendly and helpful. Property - looks great, fun. Food - good. Location - close to subway, and walking distance to sites. Room - clean, cozy. Rooftop bar - awesome! I'll be coming back soon.
Spacious enough room, and nice. Cool environment - very artsy. Great bar and restaurant. I'd give a 11/10 for the value.

I've stayed in hostels all over the world. This is probably the best one in New York! Clean rooms, clean crisp sheets, comfy pillows! Staff was really nice, made great suggestions on what to do in NYC. I got a free welcome drink when I checked in which was great after a long day of travelling from the west coast. I was only there for one night, but they had games and activities aplenty. I went to "drink and draw" at the bar, it was pretty cool! Late at night they played movies on an enormous screen in the lounge area. I will definitely be back next time I'm in NY. Thanks!!!!
pleasantly surprised, very good hostel with a staff at the top.
When you take a walk in the area you’ll feel as though you’ve entered not just a different country but a different continent. Streets are lined with stands selling exotic foodstuffs such as live eels, square watermelons and hairy rambutans besides cheap jewelry and 99 cents shops.
Besides the typical Italian Restaurants on Mulberry Street which just one block from the apartment, you’ll find restaurants representing the cuisine of virtually every province of mainland China and Hong Kong, plus I
The ISC youth hostel is located in a historical brownstone building in a beautiful residential neighborhood of the Upper West Side in Manhattan. The Upper West Side is one of the safest & friendliest neighborhoods in New York City, boasting an amazing range of restaurants, jazz bars, & cultural centers in walking distance. We are located half a block away from Central Park & the nearest subway station.
Rockefeller Centre just 17 minutes away, & the famous shopping along 5th Avenue just 25 mins
So relaxing!! Perfect getaway! The property is beachfront, the staff are excellent, the place has nice interiors, amenities are great, and they also have a restaurant and a bar. Paradise!
The location is great. A few steps from the metro station. The girl that received me at night was very nice and helpful.

Very affordable in an excellent NYC location!
Friendly staff, a well-equipped kitchen and a cozy common room.
The location and the house.

-Sanitary very dirty blood found on the ground ..) -No cover, only a simple sheets -Slitting bed that creaks at a very small movement performed + very uncomfortable -Window breaks, the tape does not allow to hold a window .. -No change of sheets -No cleanliness in the rooms -The noise is a horror (it feels like just outside) Only positive point: it is very well placed, 2 minutes walk from the metro.
I had to pay more on my arrival than what I booked with Booking.com.
I had to pay more for a "late check-out" than was not written anywhere.
Insect in the bathroom.
The personnel is not nice at all.
I really believe an Airbnb is better for the price.
A very welcoming and pleasant staff! A great location to visit Manhattan !! But very old premises and really limited !! She would need to enter! But always clean!
