First the worst: I booked a single room but got a double one with a bunk bed and a stranger, due to overbooking. The shared bathroom floor was covered with water from the showers. Staff: friendly. Location: fantastic, subway station close, Broadway just a walk away. Love the roof terrace. WLAN: fast (5-10 Mbps down and up) and free. Free... More

The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, always answering any questions an requests. The only tip I would give is to know what you are getting into, as the cabins, although private, are all located in one room, which can get a little noisy (e.g. Snorers). But I had a great time, couldn't get a better location, bed was comfy... More

This hotel offers single beds, the "rooms" are really just dividers, so that there is a small space with a bed and a bedside table... very little space for anything. The washrooms are clean, and look nice. The staff are friendly and helpful, and even printed off directions for me to get to an attraction. \The area has lots of... More

If you want to live on Manhattan and in a nice place like Little Italy - and don't want to overpay - it's a place for you. But be ready that it's not event a hostel. Strange and funny format - that's what I'd say about it. Imagine nice reception area - stylish, large and cosy. Imagine doors with "CABINES"... More

I loved the place, roof top was neat. You aren't coming to NYC to hang out in your room , so it perfect for the traveler on a budget. Bathrooms are clean, staff was nice. Yes the cabins are small but , you are just sleeping there. I'll stay here again.

I had certain reservations about staying in a hostel, but The Bowery House turned out to be a terrific choice...particularly when it came to my budget. The cabins are cozy and (surprisingly) quiet. As someone who is a terribly light sleeper, noise is always a concern...but I didn't have any problems sleeping through the night here. The bathroom was exceptionally... More

As far as hostels go this place is uber cool. Yeah the rooms are small but it's incredibly clean and surprisingly quiet. Bathrooms/showers are close to the rooms and very clean. Shampoo, conditioner and body wash are provided. The staff here are so friendly and fun, on the right night the rooftop bar is great. I'm travelling solo and found... More

it's a hostel - take it or leave it. single "rooms" are cubicles containing a bed with basically no room for anything else. sound insulation is very poor (you hear people coughing) but they provide ear plugs just in case. the place is quite clean and the staff friendly; wifi works pretty well. male bathroom is at 3rd floor, female...
