OK

Posted May 28, 2015
Pros: Price and staff
Cons: Bathrooms
It is a loft space divided into sleeping cabins. Bathrooms are shared and the plumbing just about acceptable.

Great location but small accommodations. Just be aware that cabin means a small bed and about 4 square feet of room. Literally.

Bigger than a breadbox...but not by much.

Posted May 18, 2015
Pros: It's location in Manhattan is nice.
Cons: The water situation needs major work done to it. The rooms HAVE to be just a bit bigger.
Location: Plenty of restaurants and shops around, that's the good thing about its location.
Bowery House has a serious water issue with sinks and showers; sometimes they work and sometimes they don't, and they don't appear concerned about this. It's as if "it is was it is." They staff was nice enough, but the rooms are simply just too darn small. They're closets, really. While in bed, I had to lie sideways on it or else my head would be against one wall and my feet pressing up against the other. The sheets were clean, I guess, but had stains on them from age and use. If you are on a no-budget trip to NYC, then fine, go for it. But these accommodations are indeed bottom of the barrel.

Exactly as described! It is what it is.

Posted May 18, 2015
Pros: Price. Location.
Cons: It is fine. It is what it is.
Location: Little Italy, Chinatown, Williamsburg Bridge in the immediate vicinity.
Exactly as described! It is what it is. Met my need for an inexpensive place to stay. Spaces are smaller than they appear. Beds are relatively short. Third floor. An interesting mix of people. Understand what you are buying! I will stay there again.

Colorful, historic location

Posted May 17, 2015
Pros: Cute cabin rooms, price, nice staff, good location.
Cons: More bathrooms.
Location: Lombardi's Pizza, Katz's Deli, tons of shops and restaurants.
A good place to stay in NYC for a great price. You stay in cute little "cabin" rooms that include a bed, light and a small night table with drawers. All you need for a short stay. The Bowery House is located basically where Little Italy meets Chinatown, there's plenty of historic buildings around. Lombardi's Pizza is about five minutes away, Katz's Deli is close by too. There's also a Whole Foods Market right down the street if you're not in a restaurant mood. There are also subway stops nearby (Bowery, Spring and Price). Don't forget to head upstairs and check out the rooftop garden, especially at night, you can see the Chrysler building out in the distance and One World Trade Center quite closely. Upon checkout (11 AM), you can leave your luggage in a secure room. Great help for me since I had to wait three hours for my ride home. Some minor downsides to the place: -Cabin room beds are very small. I'm 5'8" and I had to scrunch up to fit comfortably in the bed, if I stretched out fully my feet would be against the wall of the cabin. -Noise. They mean it when they say quiet rooms not guaranteed, and they even give you a complimentary set of earplugs in your room. -Shared bathrooms. Be prepared to wait your turn. -The location is busy and the street was always full of people enjoying the sights, but it can be a little rough. All being said, still a great place to stay for the price and location.

ロケーションが良い

Posted Apr 29, 2015
Pros: 想像していたよりすごくかっこよかった フロントの人がとても感じが良かった
Cons: シャワールームのほうのトイレのトイレットペーパーが 先が見つけにくいうえに短くしか切れなくて苦労した
天井とか狭さとか写真から想像していたより気にならなかった 音も確かに筒抜けだけれど眠れないとかはなかった

Desconforto

Posted Mar 27, 2015
Pros: A localização é ótima.
Cons: Mais infraestrutura e menos taxas extras por serviços basicos obrigatórios.
Location: Excelente. Tudo é próximo. Metrô, bares, restaurantes museus etc.
Para que a proposta de cabine funcionasse seria necessário mais infraestrutura. Eles não guardam as malas depois do checkout às 11h am. Tudo é cobrado a parte, inclusive a troca das toalhas depois de vários dias. Somando tudo... Um hotel normal teria melhor custo/benefício.

Good stay at a good rate.

After staying at the New World Hotel twice, I decided to give the Bowery House a try. I found it to be a great improvement over the New World. Building was much better maintained and the staff very professional. I will use this hostel for my solo trips from now on.
