  • Great value for the location, near to Chinatown and 5 mins walk to subway, the New Museum across the road is pretty cool. This place is fantastic, the reception/common area is beautiful and the building, quite old, is well preserved, the price is really good and is excellent you are travelling alone. High internet speed connection in lobby, the staff are polite and attentive and the best showers of all hostels I have seen.

    The rooms were very small.

  • Location was fantastic, helpful staff and the place felt secure. The prices there were quite good too, room was nice and the Bowery Kitchen was great. Restaurant downstairs had yummy breakfast.

    Budgetwise, there's no better option in Manhattan and showers were freezing.

  • The location was really good and the stuff was very helpfull and friendly. The price was reasonable for staying in Manhattan, staff were awesome and bathrooms and showers great and kept very clean. The restaurant downstairs called the bowery kitchen has amazing food, pillows were extremely comfortable and ralph Lauren towels were really nice.

    Value for money in an expensive city accommodation wise, the atmosphere is a little dark and cramped cabins individual, the room is minuscule, and badly behaved my suitcase.

  • The location is good and just 5 minutes walk up the road is the subway. Hotel is well secured, the Bowery House seems to try keep clean and the price is reasonable. For on the budget this is the best deal in town, the decoration is very nice and because of the staff, you can have a big trouble here, like I had. Rooms are extremely small, the food is absolutely flawless.

    Under an extraordinary situation, greater value for money and bathrooms could get crowded at times.
