You get what you pay for; don't forget this is NYC

Pros: Price, bodywash and shampoo, towels, staff, lobby and roof garden.
Cons: Bathroom usually turned into a puddle after less-than-tidy guests showered up, air conditioner wasn't very effective.
Location: Within a few blocks can be found very popular (and a bit safer) nightlife. There's a museum across the street and Whole Foods within walking distance.
I spent three nights in The Bowery House and would happily do it again. Being in something of a pinch for time and not wanting to spend $180+ per night on a hotel in Manhattan (but refusing to stay anywhere else), The Bowery House was basically my only option. Check-in was a breeze with a very friendly hipster-type guy managing everything. He asked a bit about what brought me to town and where I was coming from before passing me my key, giving me some house rules for the cabin areas, and pointing me in the direction a needed to go. Like others have mentioned this place doesn't have an elevator, so I had to climb a short flight of stairs to the fourth floor. My cabin- the classic cabin with a smaller-than-twin bed- did what it needed to do. If I'd had more luggage than the small roll-aboard and shoulder bag which traveled with me, I probably would have been cramped and lacking for space. My advice: if you are taller (I'm 5'11") and have the room to do it, move the bed so that it is diagonally aligned in the room. That way arms and legs can hang out the ends of the bed and the whole experience is much more comfortable. Also, the earplugs they provide will probably be useful. My first night was uneventful, but the second and third nights were full of a burp/fart/snore/Skype/shower orchestra. Yes, don't be naive; not everybody abides by the don't-talk rules.

모든면에서 미흡

Posted Jun 23, 2015
맨하탄이라는 이유때문에 숙박이 비싸지만 비싼값 진짜 못하는 호텔임. 다른방이랑 방음이 전혀 안되서 근처에 코골이 있으면 잠도 못 잠. 그리고 근처에 식당 갈만한데도 없어서 식사하기 힘듬. 호텔이 건물3층부터 지만 엘레베이터가 없고 무조건 계단임. 트렁크 무거운분들에겐 무조건 비추. 그거 들고 3층까지 걸어가야됨.

The room was VERY small but thats asy to get over if youre just looking lfor a spot to sleep. The bed was comfy and i slept well, storing our luggage in the room was a task but other than that we were out all day so our room was quite fine for that purpose

Truly Depressing

Posted Jun 15, 2015
This is not a hotel. These are not "rooms." The "cabins" are four wood walls about the size of a solitary confinement cell in prison. At 5' 8'', my head and feet nearly touched the walls while in the bed. There are NO CEILINGS on the rooms, so you can hear every breath of the people around you. Every bed creak, burp, snore, sneeze etc etc etc sounds like it's in your room, because it nearly is. People were slamming doors while entering and exiting their rooms at 2am, 3am, 4am. The SHARED men's bathroom is not even on the same floor. Be prepared to climb two sets of stairs and walk through a maze of cabins to get to it if you're on the 3rd floor. I booked for two nights before seeing the place, and when I checked out at 10 am the morning after my first dreadful night, the hotel refused to refund my 2nd night. Considering the condition of the entire operation I guess I should not be surprised....

Be prepared for the noise

Pros: Location
Cons: Everything
I'm not sure why this place is listed under hotels, it's clearly a hostel. It is essentially a giant loft space on the 4th floor of a building that has been sectioned off into "cabins". Light sleepers should stay away from this place as the walls are paper-thin and the cabins themselves have no ceilings. Because there is no carpeting and no sound absorption, you hear every high heel, dress shoe and flip-flop that passes by. Good earplugs and a sleep mask are musts. The cooks at a nearby restaurant also have access to the bathrooms and they sometimes rent the rooftop to private parties in the middle of the day so you'll have those people in and out as well. While I stayed there, the fire alarm went off twice in the middle of the night. In the morning when I asked, I was told that a guest was smoking inside which triggered the alarm. The second time, someone used an exit that they shouldn't have. - It overlooks Bowery street which is just a constant stream of honking all night. - People coming in from bars are in and out from midnight until 5 am. - The housekeeping staff starts cleaning bright and early, chatting away while they work. - No hot water in the showers during peak usage.

Too expensive for what you get - they should really call themselves a "hostel" because the single rooms (cabins) are extremely small and do not give you any privacy (guests are not even allowed to talk on the phone there).

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