Again, compared with the price everything was ok. But of course- expect a lot of noise. There is also the thing with the shared bathroom - but usually it wasn't even occupied.
I really liked the cleanliness of the cabin as well as the location, compared with the price. The hotel staff were really nice.
The rooms are ridiculously small, if you have more than one bag do not even bother! There is no space to put your luggage and be able to walk around the bed. The noise was absolutely ridiculous. Because there are no ceilings on any of the minuscule rooms you can hear absolutely everything! On our first morning a cleaner was cleaning the floors and bashing the skirting board every time causing constant loud banging at approx 6.30am. On our second morning a homeless man had come through the front door (which is supposed to be manned by security) and came up the stairs to the rooms and was banging on every door from 3am-5am and trying to get in rooms while yelling profanity and looking for girls - this could have been very dangerous if a girl (let alone anyone) had opened their door. As a female sleeping in a room on the 1st floor I had to walk down the stairs and through reception and common areas to use the toilet and bathroom every time as there was only a female bathroom on the reception floor. There were only 3 showers per gender for the whole of the hostel to use....100+ people staying in the hostel at any given time so the ratio is just ridiculous. Although this hostel is in a great location, it is extremely overpriced for what you get...which is zero sleep!
Location location location! The location is everything with this hostel.
I travelled with a friend. Once I arrived the first thing I saw were homeless people sleeping and sitting next to the door of the hostel (I wish I could attach some pictures). On my questions "is it ok that they are our close neighbors?", I got the answer that its fine (well, it isn't my first time in ny and I didn't see homeless people being soooo close to hotels and other places where tourists stay). Reception was on the 2/3rd floor and I had a luggage that was rather difficult to carry bc of the stairs. Women toilet and women bathroom was on a different floor and every night I had to get there through reception and other people sitting in the lounge zone. As for the rooms... Well i've never ever seen anything like this. They were soooooooooo small that I would have never ever believed that they could be like this (especially after nice pictures on the website). There was only a bed and a very small table and that's it. We couldn't even pack things with a friend being in this room at the same time, cause there was not enough space. The worst thing was the absence of the sealing!!! I heard people taking a shower, sneezing and even changing cloths... Well I guess I don't need to say that when I checked in I was told not to eat, not to talk on the phone and not to watch anything on the phone bc everything is so easy to hear. I could understand if it was an open space and the cost was ok for it. But 450 dollars for 3 nights for two in such a nightmare I think is very expensive. I wouldn't recommend this place to stay... Maybe only for guys who don't need any comfort and only for 1 night. Hope this review will ha help you to make your choice. The only thing I can say is that it was the most stupid way to save money, cause the difference with a 4 star hotel for two people for 3 nights was probably 150 dollars...
Stuff is very nice and pleasant
I stayed in a single room. I cannot tell you how small it was - a short single bed up against the wall (fine for a short single girl like me) and then literally a foot AT MOST before the other wall. I know the room is cheap for Manhattan but this didn't feel like value for money, not just because of the laughable size but because the room ceiling was open! Lattice! So it wasn't at all "private" - you could hear snoring, wake up calls (no phone of course, so wake up knocking), people skyping... Apart from people not being able to see you, it didn't feel private at all. And above all, it meant some noisy led to not much sleep. I don't know why Bowery House would choose to have open ceilings. Heating / cooling perhaps? They do make this clear though so my fault for not reading the room description properly.
The location cannot be beaten for anyone most interested in Downtown NYC - every time I pinned a restaurant or bar that I wanted to try on a map, I couldn't believe how close they were to the hotel. 5 stars in terms of location.
Rooms are more like cubicles. Walls partway up then lattice covering so you can hear absolutely everything from every room. Guests aren't aupposed to have phone conversations in the rooms for this reason but no one followed that rule. So many snorers that earplugs could drown out. Ladies showers sooo small and dark, no space to change in the washrooms. Doors can't close quietly just because of the locks, so each time someone left, you knew about it from the slamming door. Beds are narrow and short, so anyone over 5 foot 6 is going to have a struggle.
The location was great, 30 mins to walk to many tourist spots, and subway stops just around the corner. The wifi was excellent, only dropped out once in 8 days. Staff really friendly and helpful.
very noisy because The place was under construction and there are no ceilings in the condos. I was also too long for the bed and so also for the room
Clean bathrooms, strong WiFi Connection and friendly staff
I didn't know there'd be such openness and lack of noise privacy in the rooms. Rooms were super tiny and earplugs were provided, but I had just executed proper walls and ceilings
Common areas including bathrooms were clean
No getting around the size of the beds / cabins and the lack of sound proofing (though generally other guests are quite quiet and considerate). I took the basic nature of the cabins as a prompt that I was in New York and therefore shouldn't be in bed!
Great location, fabulous staff, fastidiously clean, lot of time and trouble taken with period features.
The walls to each room are open, so noise becomes an issue if other guests are being inconsiderate.
The space is well kept and has an air of bougie-ness. The staff is great, they held my bag for the day so I could check in later because I was in a rush.
The staff! - Very helpful & accommodating with great tips on the local area/NYC
the staff are amazing - very helpful and full of suggestions... and the deco is great!
The rooms are small :) like bird nest as my next door friend called it in Bowery ... Actually everything is perfect with Bowery.
I really liked the friendly attitude of Bowery staff, all are super helpful. It's very close to subway station to go to upper Manhattan and Brooklyn which makes it amazing for coming back late. The rooms are very clean and tidy. Bathroom and restrooms are super clean although they are being shared. Wifi is on all the time with excellent speed. Two thumbs UP for Bowery house.
Some people may seem a bit loud at night i think.
The staff are so nice and very helpfull. The baths are clean and great. Everything is clean!
Walls are really thin and there is no ceiling, so you will here everything. People do respect, but still you can hear steps, doors, etc.
Almost a hostel, but with (some) privacy. Near subway, clean, nice living room to hang out.
They give you earplugs which is great, but you definitely need to use them because without them, it is very loud.
It's a good price in a great location.
Hot water in bathroom was sometimes not available
I didn't truly dislike anything, just want to note a few things: - I booked this last minute, so I may have missed that this was a shared-bathroom situation. Bathrooms were gorgeous and clean, but I still would have packed some shower sandals :) - I'm 6'4", and the beds (and rooms) are shorter than a normal twin bed. My head and feet were touching opposite walls when laying flat. It wasn't completely uncomfortable, but very tall guests may want to be aware of that.
- Very cool building with a neat history thats been nicely updated. - Rooftop garden is a nice place to unwind. - Staff was great! - Overall very neat place for a solo traveller looking for something different.
Renovation work going on inside the building. How can one sleep when they start hearing all kinds of construction noise at 8 in the morning.
Private room is a good concept , even though it is a shoe box.
There was a fan above the bed, hence the extra blanket, female and male bathrooms are on different floors so I had to walk a flight of stairs to the bathroom/showers. It took about two hours to get from and to Laguardia due to some intense traffic, but once there, the subway stations were easy to access and it's only a few blocks away from Lafayette for some good shopping.
The staff were cheery and friendly, and I had a cabin with two windows (for me it was worth the added expense). They had no problem sending an extra blanket and pillow, really nice communal area, convenience store across the street, and great eats at Jaques around the corner! The rooftop garden was pretty great.
I reserve in here to spend a couple of night in NY, but was horrible, I could hear a snoring guy from 2 beds and every single time there where people making noise and you could hear everything. I check out one day before because I could not sant it anymore ans they told me they could not give my money back of the night because was using booking.com and they where external to them. Really bad experience, I would not come back there
They were doing construction which was noisy. I also do not feel this is an environment for children.
Super clean and friendly environment. Staff was very helpful and the decor was lovely - they even have a roof deck!
The rooms share a common headspace, so noise travels very easily. Most people were respectful and mindful of this, but a particularly amorous german couple did spoil a few nights for all of us!
Firstly, the location is great for short walks to Soho and the Village, and there are plenty of good bars, shops and cafes nearby. The subway access to midtown is excellent too, but it's also a nice stroll and can be walked in an hour. The bed was way too short for a man of my height (6ft), as advertised to be fair, but I did not expect the wall of my room to be close to the bottom of my bed either so couldn't straighten my legs at all. The room was very basic, but for the money it's hard to complain. The bathrooms and showers were very very good though, hot showed with good pressure and underfloor heating. Free and fast wifi a bonus, and overall I would definitely recommend this to young travelling groups or solo travellers.
small room, the room is at the size of the bad no roof at your room, so all night you could here the noise from the other rooms broken shower small shower
worst hotel I have ever been to
Location, price, nice and warm, -20 outside. Roof viee
I didn't fit in the little bed, I'm 1.80 mts tall. Very noisy all around the night NYC is so expensive that paying 60/night sounds cheap, but it is not.
Location nice living room kind girl at the main desk
