4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I recently stayed at The Bowery House for a quick trip to the city and absolutely loved my time there. The neighborhood is lovely and the hostel itself is adorable. You'll be warned of the smaller rooms and the flight of stairs to climb, but as long as you're aware of these things and able to climb- you'll be fine!... More

This is my second time staying at the Bowery (I stayed for one night last August) and I have to stay it has the nicest staff in NYC. Very helpful with bags and directions. The Bowery is probably best for a solo traveller due to the small space.

This is a very intreaguing place. I've never stayed anywhere like it and I am not sure I would stay there again. The cabins are TINY. The beds are less than 1.8m long so don't think about wriggling your toes or stretching your head bc you'll bump into the wall. They really need some places to hang up stuff eg... More

The cabins are tiny but the hostel is secure, clean and relatively quiet. The solo cabins are comfortable and suited to visitors who just want a place to sleep and are not expecting a entertainment suite in their room! The hostel is far better than other's nearby and is in a good, central location. The staff are friendly and helpful... More

I had a really bad experience. I booked the room through booking.com and what I got was completely different to expected. The rooms are small cabins with no windows, the wall don't go all the way up to the ceiling so there are not privacy. It is noisy, dirty and not cozy at all. And they charge for storage the... More

There are no ceilings on the rooms,, you can hear EVERYTHING within the "POD" as they call it... We pre-paid for one night thinking it was a hotel (doesnt state anywhere on their website that it is a Hostel) didn't sleep a wink.. There are drunken homeless people on the 1st floor and just outside the building,, very scary... The... 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.
