Decent location. Easy access to the subway. Staff was great. with the exception of one. Helpful, knowledgeable, welcoming, fun. Nice common area, everyone seemed really nice, and interested in getting to know each other.
If you are taller than 5'8" The beds will not fit you comfortably. You can hear every conversation, phone buzz, snore, etc.... everything. One staff member was horrible. He's the one ignoring you and treating you like you're an inconvenience when you need your room key.
Good Location Free Wifi Staff were very friendly and helpful. Bathrooms were mostly clean...but as the day wore on they get progressively worse but seem to be cleaned daily which is a plus.
Noise, both coming over the top of single rooms and through the floor of the attached bar (but you get what you pay for and its a hostel). Bed length and room size, really does seem like its just trying to squeeze people in a bit to much when your feet are off the bed and you're only 174 cm tall. Be aware there is a homeless shelter across the street
Excellent staff, clean place, excellent location (within walking distance of the subway), safe area.
The cabins are very small and uncomfortable if you are tall. They have no ceiling and you will hear other people. You're better off getting the room.
The location and price
Extremely noisy and dark. It looked weird, not welcoming. The walls not being attached to the roof was strange, and the reason of my poor sleep.
The location was great; the street it's on seems a little sketchy but a few blocks away is a really nice restaurant and bar area for younger crowds.
There is no ceiling on the rooms, there's just this garden lattice fence nailed to the top of the walls. It's serviceable enough, I suppose, but it does make the room feel less private and it does let in noise and bugs.
Clean, location OK and cost effective for Manhattan.
Booked a private room and although it was the only bed in the room, was still open above head high so not as quite/private as I had expected.
I really enjoyed my stay at a the Bowery House. It's located perfectly, it has a great vibe and I would highly recommend it for a traveler on a budget.
The restrooms can get a little crowded in the mornings, but it really isn't a deal breaker. If you're a light sleeper, you might need to bring some earplugs to avoid the snorers.
My boyfriend and I stayed here over the past 4 days, and we absolutely loved it. The staff are friendly and gave us great recommendations for bars, restaurants and attractions nearby and how to get to them. Our room was slightly bigger than we expected, and the bed was very comfortable. The entire hostel was clean and tidy, and the bathrooms in particular were kept very clean. The rooftop terrace is stunning, absolutely massive with incredible views of Downtown Manhattan.
The ceilings are a drawback, but if you're not an especially light sleeper then you very quickly get used to it. The other guests are respectful of the lack of proper ceiling, and so everyone is very quiet at night.
- Roof Garden is spectacular - Unique place to stay - Clean -Showers/Bathroom Great -Location
- Maybe a tad expensive, but its cheap for New York. -Room was very hot, aircon not great
This is NOT an Hostel, the place is a big room divided into small cabins (not even 3m2) with no roof so you can hear everything and everybody. It feels like being in a prison. The women bathroom is located downstairs so if your cabin is upstairs you need to pass through the main room to go shower. Plus the bathroom is NOT divided into cabins for you to have some privacy. It's just a curtain that separate you from the others Too expensive for a prison
- roof access is fantastic, and necessary for stretching your legs - Showers are stocked with soap - 24 hr front desk staff - Though small, the desk is comfortable
I stayed for a week, and your sleep relies VERY heavily on the other guests on the floor. If everyone is quiet, you can get some good sleep. But, if you have a group of Aussies come in at 1AM, loudly yelling and talking for hours on end, you'll get no sleep. Front desk staff does not help with this.
boutique feel for a hostel, dorm type style has charm, the living room I liked the most, helpful staff, wifi is not bad, neighborhood is GREAT, if you like that type of society. Lots of everything in the hood, whole food, cvs, many resto's and bars, shopping and on Broadway there is a multitude of everything. The bathroom is nice, you feel different. My second hostel stay, and this is the best!
the open roof in individual room, you can hear everyone, some ppl are very loud and not considerate when returning late. I'm a hard sleeper and I woke up. It will happen as your bed is in a tiny cabin, I slept individually. It was OK clean, not sure how often they clean I think once per AM and PM at least the shower had a dark curtain so you had some privacy while showering. I missed hooks to hang more items as indiviual room are VERY VERY small. You walk in and if you have a small trolley you are OK, but if you get claustrofobic then its not the place for you.
Nothing. the most horrible nights in my life
The girl who worked on the graveyard shift the time I was here was fantastic. Very friendly and attentive.
I was a little tall for my room.
The beds and rooms are tiny. I am not overly tall and my head was on one wall and my feet on the other. Much longer than my bed. Noisy, hot and uncomfortable
It had a good location The concept with a lot of rooms is cool, too bad the employees didn't do their job.
The staff was rude and not helpful at all. Busy using Facebook and snapchat instead of helping the guests. There was a nice young girl behind the desk when we arrived, but the rest of the time some rude guys were at the reception. We were told not to bring food to our room, but that we could eat in the lobby, which was fine. Except when we ate our lunch in the Lobby and they told us to eat it somewhere else because our food (a sandwich) stunk. We are both 20 years old and consider ourselves tolerant, but we did not get what we paid for. Our room was clean but the restrooms were dirty.
Their staff is great, they're very polite and helpful. Their bathrooms were nice as well. It's hood of you just need a place to sleep.
The fact that the bathrooms were shared, how you can hear the other people walking or talking and snoring loudly. And the size of the rooms was like sleeping in a closet space.
Walking distance to funky eateries. Amazing rooftop for chilled meals and drinks with friends Bathroom products & towels are great
Rooms are tiny
The individual bed and the bathdroom
The noise of the machine
Location is perfect Staff were very nice beds were surprisingly comfortable bathrooms were kept pretty clean
A few inconsiderate guests would talk at night bathroom showers should be cleaned more often
We are very well taken care of, if we need something, it is taken care of. What I appreciate is the fact that clients are a priority.
The air conditioning was too cold, and the last two days it was broken, or wouldn't work, I asked for it to be repaired twice. Sometimes the showers weren't that clean, I would find drain hair.
Chris, Gina and rest of staff are all professional and welcoming. . Thank you. .
Nice aesthetic/design and great Chesterfields in the common room and ONLY in the common room. Helpful, friendly, young staff.
Stayed in one of the larger female bunk rooms but glimpsed the claustrophobic individual cabins in passing. (How are those legal?!) Noisy, noisy, noisy. No floor to ceiling partitions, one communal bathroom for an entire floor so it was always crowded. Bathrooms were a horror - mildewed, wet, long waits for the shower, singularly unpleasant. This is a hostel and an incredibly expensive one. No elevator in the building so be prepared to hoist your luggage up several flights of stairs. Dark and damp and dank and dreary - true to its history as a flophouse. Not even the location would make this place worth it. I spent one night and cancelled the remaining booked nights. Post-checkout storage fees of $10 per day apply.
