Stayed for 3 nights, had read a bit about it before so I knew what to expect. I liked it, the complimentary ear plugs helped me sleep no problem and the location was great for me. The staff were all lovely. All in all, I'd definitely go back if I'm going to NYC on my own again.

When recommend this I didn't realize it was literally a room with no roof not even big enough for your luggage. Despite this it was an experience and comfy sleep - even came with earplugs haha. Great area my favorite area in NY (I've been 15 times) right across the road from the New Museum and a short walk through... More

Complications with their booking system meant my girlfriend and I were downgraded to bunk beds, which as we understand was out of their control. The standard rooms we were put in were uncomfortably small. The communal bathrooms and spaces were nice and well maintained and the staff friendly enough. However, given the size of the rooms and price I think... More

So glad I stumbled upon The Bowery House while in NYC - couldn't have found anywhere else to stay that was so affordable, and a private room/cabin no less! Not to mention the very cool downtown/soho/nolita location - it's also super close/easy to get to Brooklyn from here, and a Whole Foods directly across the road so all your meals... More

I stayed at the Bowery House for 5 nights. Great location in Little Italy and near Chinatown. Teeny tiny rooms with literally a bed and a side table. This place is not for tall people as you will not fit onto the bed. I had to put my luggage under the bed which was awkward when trying to find something... More

If you just need a decent bed and place to leave your stuff while you're out getting all the good bits of NYC, this is perfect. Staff were great, and always friendly and helpful, rooms were cleanish (could do with a vac and a dust) and shared bathroom was too. Only negative was the lack of light in the rooms..... 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.
