We had a wonderful trip and this hostel was very well located for what we wanted to do. It could use fresh paint and new furniture for sure but.. it was clean, friendly and safe.
Here is a pic of our room .. no window, bed and night table hooks on back of door shared bathroom. There are four of them. Coffee, microwave and they sell bottles of water and cup o noodles for a buck at the front desk. Good for a night or two.

I did not expect to much, but at least a window in my room would be nice.Also there is nowhere mentioned, that bathrooms are shared. I would not book this property knowing these two things. And if there are no windows, I would expect air cond to work as advertised. Cannot really imagine sleep in during summer time.

Manhattan Bowery Lodge: A place not to stay
The hotel was a big disappointment. They are dishonest. They removed some amount from my account after promising that payment will be done on site and that the credit card information they collected from me was just for security purposes. There was nothing to suggest during the booking process that any deposit was required. It was after I called to complain that they debited my account of that they said it was deposit for the rooms. Outside was dirty with lots of cigarette stumps and beer corks littering it. There was no elevator and the place reeked of alcohol and tobacco. The environment did not appear safe. There was no hotel staff or valet to welcome guests or help with luggage. I and my friends did not stay for a day. The place didn't feel clean, hospitable or safe enough for us. Manhattan Bowery lodge should not be allowed to advertise on again. The hotel is not what they claim to be. I suspect they debited my account because they know we wouldn't want to stay after arriving and seeing how horrible the place and the surrounding is. They are fraudsters.

Glad I was gone
The room is tiny. It has the bare necessities if you just want a place to sleep at night. The beds feel dusty. I got terrible allergy from the air in the room. The walls are thin so we heard people walking in the hallways, toilet flushing in the communal bathrooms at night. Additionally, during check-in the guy told us to pay in cash, which was not conveyed to us before we booked.
