Close to a lot of Bars Good internet speed Close to metro Nice area Controlled access
The best thing on Bowery House is the Staff. Young very nice, respecful, communicative, young people willing to help at any time. Would give very detailed information about anything in NYC, specially the nearby neighborhoods like NoLiTa. The Garden at the top was a plus. The quietness help a lot compensating commodities not part of the package.
Well, being aware of the historic context of the building itself which for me is important, can't help mention the ilumination concept of the cabins area and the height of the "fenced " top. Was too dark and too low.
Location Very sweet staff Nice facilities - especially the bathrooms Dope rooftop Cosy lounge
Size and length of bed
open ceilings and a minority of guests refuse to comply with the quietness rules
Good location, reasonable price (hotels that night were going for 200+), relatively private room (cubicles so could still hear other people, but expected this from the reviews and provided earplugs worked well)
Woke up in the night with intense itching, but no visible bites, so didn't complain to the staff. The next day, the itching turned into welts and I realized it had been bed bugs. Place would have been fine if not for this incident, but whole trip has been ruined and now obsessively disinfecting everything and even discarding some items. Wish I had just spent the extra money and got a hotel room, unfortunately ended up costing a lot more in replacements, cleaning and stress.
The price vs. Room space
Clean and new with comfy beds (I stayed in one of the dorm rooms). The daytime staff members were extremely helpful and friendly. Amazing location, close to many subway lines and walking distance to some great eateries. Excellent price in NYC. Recommended as long as you have good earplugs.
The walls of the room are metal and do no reach the top of the roof so you hear everything that goes on and it is noisy with people coming and going throughout the night. Evening staff member seemed disinterested and didn't care about broken locker.
* Nice location * Close from subway stations (prefer Brodway-Lafayette street, with more connections) * Neighbourhood plenty of restaurants/street food * AC * Large rooms
* staff is a bit picky about time (they will charge to keep your luggage earlier or check out room too late, even for 1 hour) * no entertainment
Professional Staff, modern bathrooms, sitting area, location.
Open architecture of room (Ceiling) Size of Room Bathroom Floors in all areas stayed wet on the ground. (Top Items)
Location is excellent. Close to different subway stations.Very well comunicated Staff is really nice and helpful. Roof garden should be excellent in summer nights. Baths are adequate enough
Fairly good location in Nolita. Most of the staff were helpful and nice. Nice roof top terrace. Clean.
The "cabins" are small. Really small. No roof, wafer thin walls and REALLY noisy. You will hear your neighbours breathe (and worse). Bathrooms are on another floor and few in comparison to the number of guests. The hotel is clearly just after money, since they don't even have free maps, and charge outrageous 10 dollars for luggage storage. Value for money is the worst I ever had (and I've been to 45 countries). Please, don't degrade yourself! Go somewhere else, this is NOT worth your time.
staff refused to order a taxi from the hotel
Getting locked in the 6.5' x 5' cabin with a deadbolt that wouldn't open from either side. Nearly panicked at 3:00 am until I was handed a screwdriver to remove the lock from the inside.
It is close to the different subways
The long stairs in the enter and personal changed my things to another room with not advice to me.
The hostel was great and clean as seen on the website pictures. The staff are very helpful and always ready to give advise on the area and the "gem" spots (whether its eating, going to a bar etc). Next to the hostel there is a lovely wine bar/restaurant (a bit pricy) but the tapas and wine selection is great! the vibe of the place is great with mature crowd/New Yorkers. Next door to this there is a bar (called R bar) with good entertainment (some young crowd bjut fairly fun!). The location of the hostel is great. Spring Street is literally round the corner with the subway not far out, that takes you to most subway attractions. Chinatown and Little Italy is just next door to where the hostel is located. Overall had a great stay and great time.
The only negative about the hostel (even though it didnt bother much) is that there are no walls to room/cabins, but there are partitions which are open from the top of the ceiling, so you can hear fairly much most people? However at all times i found that people were quite and there was no much noise.
The bed was too short - a normal person doesn't fit
Some friendly staff, cleanliness of the common bathroom and toilet
Noise due to the non-existent ceiling, a very unfriendly staff who looks like Edward Cullen, room too small for the amount paid.
I booked this place way in advance... Called before coming, knowing that I would be a bit late... I was told that everything was set for my arrival... Yet, when I arrived they told me that they overbooked. So after midnight I was without a room and my card still being charged (can only get the money back a week or two later)... Had to walk five blocks after being tired to another place which was more expensive than I budgeted for.... Whilst all this is taking place, the staff is busy talking badly about a supposedly difficult guest... Worse hostel ever!!!
Staff was consistently happy, helpful and friendly. I have zero complaints there. The location is pretty good - close to several subway lines. Facilities are kept clean, and the decor is nice. Rainfall showers are awesome!
I think a couple extra inches for room in the showers and the original cabins would be nice. I get that it's small and it's supposed to be, but it would still be nice. A few extra hooks would also be nice. Could you throw a small one inside the shower to put room keys on? One more in the cabins would be nice too. Lastly, and this is my only real "complaint" - the wireless could use some work. If you aren't using it for like a minute, it logs you out and you have to open a web browser to log back in. That's a little annoying if you're just texting or on Facebook. Can you set it to remember people better? It was so frustrating to put my phone down for a minute or so, pick it back up and then not have any data loading, have to switch to a web browser and log back in again to get things going.
I liked the atmosphere, I liked the location, I liked the interior design and I liked the people were there, guests and hosts!
I didn't like the size of the bet, too short for me...
Free High speed WiFi Close to Metro Friendly staff Close to bars and restaurants
The rooms are small It is a bit noisy (music, snoring, etc...)
Location Helpful staff Price (for Manhattan)
Some guests talking loud at night
The rooms are very clean and the bathrooms fairly clean (alot of trafic). I realy like the concept of having small pivate cubicals, so price of a upper end hostel but with more privacy. The location is fabulous, very close to SoHo, NoHo, LES and Alphabet City. Most of the staff are friendly, there are nice common areas, snacks and toiletrys available. The deco is cool as is the history.
Although there are earplugs provided, (I cant wear them as I have ear issues) it is unbelivebly noisy. I think some of the noise is possibly the housekeeper in the morning closing the doors of each cubical which have noisy latches. People banging luggage and alarm clocks going off at full volume. It is difficult with a concept such as this to contain and monitor the noise levels of guests as the ceilings of each cubical are open. There are only a few toilets and showers for a large volume of people and due to some floors being mixed you might have to go through a public area to another floor to use the appropriate bathroom for your gender. The beds are quite short, but if you understand the history of the building there isnt much the owners can change about this. Beds are also too squishy for my personal liking. No lift either and probably not possible to put one in, but in future it would be nice to see if they could find a solution to lugging bags up 3 flights of stairs. I really like the Bowery House, I have stayed before but I just wish they could do something about the noise somehow and if not maybe bring the average price down.
great location, friendly staff
bed just too small , also as bunkers
