I think that is a very good choice to live here 1 or 2 nights if you travel and do not want to spend a lot of money. Clean room, big reception with sofas, nice big bathroom.
Remember about tax! )
Nice common area
Rooms are communicated from the top part, you can hear other people snoring.
The staffs were nice. The location was also very good.
I took a single room. The bed was really small. It was difficult to sleep and keep all my luggage in that small room as well. You can almost hear the breathing of the guy living in the next room. The bulbs are from prehistoric age. There is no lift in the hotel.
No intimacy at all in these rooms
Tiny rooms, good enough for a fast trip. I would go again, location is perfect!
You must pay $10 per day to keep your luggage and the commom bathroom is too small that there is no privacy, and too dark to make up...
It was noisy because of the open ceiling.. I could hear everyone talking in the cabin.. The backgroud noise is loud because it is on the big road.. Not able to get a good sleep... so i do not think it is good place for someone on business..
so small room! like a dorm. and comparatively high price.
It was a very neat set up and unique. It was exceedingly clean and well maintained for the price and type of hotel. I liked it and would recommend it to anyone wanting an economical place to stay.
The silence on the floors was good and bad..very unique sleeping.
Staff & the lobby!
Some of the customers are not paying attention to keep clean the bath rooms but nothing to do with hotel!
Staff were absolutely lovely. Very friendly and extremely helpful. Loved the set up of the hotel with the cabin style beds.
Beds were short.
The history of the building was great and it had an awesome vibe. Staff were friendly and bathrooms were lovely.
The lattice work ceiling doesn't give much sound privacy and is a nightmare if you're a light sleeper. If you're only there for one or two nights I would go for a windowless room as they are much cheaper and you will get less disturbed by street noise.
Location Staff Style and atmosphere
Small Bed Noise from other visitors
If you are looking for an inexpensive way to visit Manhattan, take a bus and states at the Bowery House. It works great.
The staffs are very friendly. If you have any problem, they will find the best answer as they can.
You can hear the noise from the room beside yours easily. If you need a quiet place to take a rest, perhaps it's not your best choice. I stayed here in winter, sometimes I felt it was not warm enough while I was sleeping.
It is small and compact: everything you need for a brief trip fits in that little cabin. The location was superb, close to amazing restaurants, shops, galleries etc.The staffs were warm and welcoming. The roof terrace has a gorgeous view.
It is a bit noisy for a light sleeper, but there were ear plugs provided :)
Location Employees are kind and willing to help
Too noisy. Any kind of acoustic isolation between rooms (no roof in any room!).
Staff was friendly. Place is clean
They booked a wrong, more expensive, room for me
Snack bar that you can charge to your stay, helpful staff, clean bath rooms, and also that they provide products in the bathroom in case you forget. Provide ear plugs. I liked always seeing the cleaning staff.
The stairs, I just have to remember to eat before attempting for energy. Hanging out in the lobby is not encouraged so bring something to watch in your room like portable DVD player or device to watch TV/Netflix in your room with headphones. No longer having the discount at the restaurant downstairs.
Super friendly and great location
+ Easy to get to the airports (both) + Nice lobby where you would spend more of your time + Garden on the roof
- Very small cabins - No small kitchen (there's no ability to make a tea or coffee) - I got a key from the room where someone was staying... - you can leave your luggage after checkout but for $10 regardless of the time (1 or 24 hrs)
This was my first visit to New York and I was a solo traveller. I booked The Bowery House hostel following a friends recommendation and opted for a single occupancy cabin. Before I arrived in the city, I had read some reviews on here saying that the beds were too small, it was too noisy etc. These people had clearly forgotten that they had booked to stay in a hostel and not the Hilton! The room itself was small and basic but the bed was comfy and it was clean. As for the noise from the other cabins I've slept in a lot noisier places. After an action packed day & night in New York you should be able to sleep through anything! I only needed my ear plugs on just one of the three nights and slept soundly that night. Staff were friendly (one made me a hot drink for free!) and were happy to advise on directions and information on places. The location Downtown was great. Little Italy, Greenwich and Soho all within walking distance. Then it was only 10 mins on the Subway to Times Square, Broadway, Brooklyn Bridge etc. I'm planning on returning to New York next year and will definitely be staying at The Bowery again!
Convenience of hopping on a subway. Just a short walk.
Pillows were lumpy.
Location, structure, friendliness of staff (amazing) and they help you with any issue
Size of bed a bit short (but they warn about that)
The toilets and bedroom were very clean. Staff were friendly and it was easy to get anywhere in the city.
I would say - "adult backpackers" place. Cosy design, nice roof with fantastic view on WTC. Great girls at Reception desk. )) Next time I'll stay once again. Price - quality...
