Great location, always warm and very friendly 24 hour concierge and front of house staff. Great lounge area with comfortable couches and TV. Cabins are small, however enough for a bed to sleep and keep bags and luggage safe while your explore NYC. The Prince Room is awesome, much bigger and a much more comfortable bed with its own TV,...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week and it was the perfect location for us. The staff were really lovely and helpful.

Excellent option for those looking to stay alone in the city at an affordable price. An extremely high level of costumer service with clean, quiet, and comfortable surroundings.. The towels, linens, and bath products are of a super high quality, and bed was extremely comfortable. The building itself is like spending the night in a museum. If you don't mind... More

The room is tiny an has no proper walls and no ceiling. Has a long stair at the entrance and some more to get to the cool rooftop. I would... More

Don't go. Homeless people lives and sleep in common areas. The house smells and no perfume can't cover it. Only 1 toilet for entire floor (+30 people) not always clean. It's no hostel, no hotel. Just a bed. No kitchen, no fridge.

Sebastia2016, Thank you for your review. Our cleanliness is consistently mentioned in our reviews so I'm wondering if you did, in fact, stay with us. I can assure you we do not have homeless people that sleep in our common areas as there is always someone at the front desk-- almost always a manager even-- and security at night. We... More

First of all, everybody should understand that Bowery house is the middle between a hostel and hotel because in the same time, you get a private cabin which provides you more safety and privacy. Even though it works out like that in a perfect location in Manhattan very close to Metro Station and many restaurants, the price is very decent... More

In terms of location, it is strategically located if one wants to explore Lower Manhattan which includes Little Italy, Chinatown, Battery Park and Wall Street, which are all walking distance. Subway station are also very accessible from the place. In terms of safety, the place is pretty reasonable within a safe environment. Expect a number of homeless people because it... More

Staying in Nolita

Neighborhood Profile
Nolita
Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for “North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighborhood is popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry, Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping, there are cozy restaurants and sidewalk cafes serving everything from new-school Italian food to the world-famous cronuts. While small in size (Nolita stretches just a few blocks in each direction), it’s a great neighborhood to spend an afternoon people watching, window-shopping, and grabbing a bite to eat.
