Pros: スタッフが皆若くかわい子ちゃんばかり 既にF/B友達リクエストが来ていた=承認。英語は 話せないと困るのは間違いなし。ロケーションは 地下鉄近くでダウンタウン、自由の女神などアクセスいい。各国からくる旅人と友達になれる&情報交換していい店に行けた。
Cons: トイレがいつも壊れていた。シャワールーム床ビショビショ どうにかして!
Location: 夜到着時やや不安でしたが、スタッフが皆若くかわい子ちゃんばかり 既にF/B友達リクエストが来ていた=承認。英語は 話せないと困るのは間違いなし。ロケーションは 地下鉄近くでダウンタウン、自由の女神などアクセスいい。

Rooms extremely small

Posted Nov 2, 2015
Pros: The Staff was nice
Cons: Room space and cleaniness
Location: Nice location
I am dissapointed, the experience was not satisfactory at all. The space of the rooms is extremely small, I wouldn't stay again in The Bowery House. The bathroom was always wet and not clean. One shower was out of order. Bad experience. The place is dark, poor ilumination. Poor Price/quality ratio, unworthy.

Overpriced: Less privacy than advertised.

Posted Oct 31, 2015
The ads for this hotel were misleading. Cabins do not have closed roofs, which means there`s no real privacy. This would have been fine if we had known beforehand. For what you get it`s overpriced, even for New York.

Flophouse for Hipsters

Posted Oct 29, 2015
Pros: It was clean.
Cons: As I said above, you get what you pay for. The place cannot be rebuilt into a normal hotel so it's for people who want to sleep cheap.
Location: Bowery is a place where you come to furnish a restaurant. There are numerous wholesalers of kitchen equipment, plates, etc. There are restaurants too.
Bowery Hotel was once a flophouse for the derelicts who lived on the Bowery. Those people are mostly gone and the flophouse structure remains--multiple compartments--I call them kennels--each with a bed, a bit of space on one side of it, a table with a drawer and a ceiling made of wooden laths that you would use to grow vegetables on in a garden. There is also metal screening to prevent people from breaking into your room from above. The staff was friendly and young. My room was clean, as was the bed, but I had to share a common bathroom with ca. 25 men. I think the women were housed on a separate floor. The neighborhood was OK, but I don't want to visit again--nothing to see. Bottom Line; Stay there with open eyes if you want a cheap place to sleep. Bowery Hotel is no good for couples and impossible for families.

Historic place in Bowery

Posted Oct 25, 2015
Pros: The way they renovated and kept original things, I would prefer some color so not so dark, does it have to be black in hallways? roof great
Cons: Enough hot water for showers, less cleaning noise and change locks that don't clang every time anyone opens or closes, some people even slammed doors.
Location: Loved restaurants and walking neighborhood, good transit to other parts of city. I like the historic part of location.
I liked the way they have renovated it and kept the history of the place. The neighborhood has great restaurants and hang outs, fun at night, close to Green line so can get to Central Park area easily. Also close to world trade and battery park, prices more reasonable in some places. There are common showers which is ok, but not enough hot water so would be miserable in winter. They clean at night so very loud because you can hear everything, doors locking and unlocking is disruptive late into the night, the cabins are separate but sound of everything is noisy. The roof area is fantastic, especially on cool clear night and in the mornings with view of city, nice view of new world trade tower. I am glad I stayed there, but 4 nights with disruptive sleep was less than desirable. Staff is great, ambiance easy, great way to experience some history.
