          The staff was excellent, the place felt secure, and quite decent cleanliness. (No bugs or pests)

          It was shared bathroom, and I knew this, this was not an issue at all..but I found the bathroom really cold, not enough place for people to put their clothes in a non dirty place, and slippery floor that got dirty fast. I just found it hard to get dressed without dirtying something..especially my feet. For an improvement, I'd love for the bathroom to have some heat, and to install some little area where you can properly change.

          It's quite clean. The location is about 3 or block from the subway..

          shower in the bathroom is not convenience, no breakfast, it's in the third floor without elevator or escalator.

          It is much different to other hostels as it has the design and look of a much smarter place. It also offers the chance to have a private room for a bargain price - even though they are very small rooms!! But who wants to sit in a bedroom all day in nyc anyway!!

          Perhaps that the bathrooms were not very big, but it certainly didn't spoil the experience. Perhaps if each cabin/room had a mirror mounted on the wall?

          The price was reasonable for staying in Manhattan

          The cabin is awfully small and my bedroom linen wasn't clean. On saturday somebody decided to throw a party at the garden upstairs, which made the hotel extremely loud and impossible to sleep. There were actually people having sex in the bathroom and others speaking very loudly at the corridors. Talk about an awful night

        • Single

          The staff was very helpful during my stay. The original cabin with a window was a good room to stay in. The location is really nice. There are a lot of cool restaurants and botiques closeby

          The single rooms are ridiculously small, im 5'3" and it was tight. There were no true ceilings and u could hear your neighbor. A bit annoying. If youre not goingbto staybin the hotel much and are flexible about space, it should be fine. Dont bring too much luggage, it wont fit in the room!

          The staff is very nice and helpful. Very good experience... I'll definitely go back to The Bowery House.

          The Bowery House is a really nice place to stay. The staff is always helpful, the rooms and bathrooms are clean, which for me was very important. The bed was also very comfortable, though a little bit short, but that I knew already before going there. :) Nice experience. Would recommend it for sure.

          What I didn't like: the noises in the morning. But that's already the guests issue. As there are no normal ceiling, you can actually here every single thing from you neighbors' rooms. So, people could just think more about others - not to shout, or not to slam door at 6 am.

          Hotel is well secured and truly a value for money. Its the best you can ever have in ny if you are on budget.

          Hate the stairs. No staff to help you so do not use this hotel if you have asthma or heart problems. The stairs are horrible as in very horrible!!!

        • Single

          It's cheap and in a good location

          the "room" is small, the bed is small, can be quite noisy

          It's in a fantastic location at the end of Spring Street. You can walk out to some of New York's coolest shops, restaurnats and bars. It's super cheap and I felt safe as a female on my own. The night security man is lovely.

          Fistly there is no bar on the roof. The rooms didnt have a ceiling. They are like cupboards with garden lattice for ceilings and there are rows of the them so no windows. There are dim light bulbs in the narrow passageways between the rows of rooms/cupboards. It's a bit like a horror movie! I stayed 5 nights & yes saved money but never again. I lost 2 days of my holiday from being exhausted from lack of sleep. Everytime someone rolls over, scratchs, coughs, you hear them like they are next to you. I tried to stay out all night & sleep in the day to compensate. Not worth it.

          Location is good enough, very friendly stuff

          The room was extremely small and there was actually no ceiling, and it was impossible to sleep without earplugs...

        • Single
          5.8

          I enjoyed my stay at The Bowery house,staff was helpful and friendly, the location was good, easy to get to central Manhattan.I Had a room for myself.

          I had a room for myself but for the price I paid it was not worth it. The room was very tiny. I didn't mind that it didn't have a ceiling but I did mind the size of it. If people don't spent much time in the room and they want to have a room for themselves would recommend it.

        • Single

          Great hotel with amazing employees, the service is excellent, I had a problem with the reservation, because my flight was late and they solved the problem, I stayed for 1 night at another hotel and they gave me the price difference as a discount on my checkout. The hostel is very good, the bathrooms are spotless and the accommodation is very good for people who go to nyc for few days. Is an excellent cost-effective.

          The noise, because the bedrooms are very close and the roof isn't sealed, this can be a problem to who don't like noise. But nothing else, all the hostel is wonderful.

          The restrooms , shower facilities and lobby wree nice The lobby was always full of young people with their computers. Seemed to be a lot of foreign ( Europrean guests. Guests wre mostly respectful and quiet

          The rooms were small even by nyc stsndards. The hallway were very dark and aws difficult to see.
