Good choice in NYC. Bowery House is a mix of a low end hotel and a high end hostel. Tiny, cozy cabin with comfy bed. Can hear adjoining cabins snoring. Some rude people will chat on their phones in cabins but the concierge will tell them to stop . The staff were excellent from the night security guard keeping it... More

The location of this place was great, everything we wanted to do was pretty close. The staff where friendly and helped us with all our enquires. We got suggested to go tonight e rooftop bar, it's amazing everyone one should go! Amazing views of Empire State Building. The only cons where that the water was cold quite a few times... More

From the beginning of my stay until the very last minute, The Bowery House has continued to exceed my expectations. Clean facility, friendly (and attractive) staff, and great location are just a few reasons to stay here.

So I needed a room in Manhattan and I guess hotel prices change by the day based on supply and demand. The cheapest room in Manhattan that night was about $250 and that was a crappy hotel. I booked a room here at the Bowery House. So here's the real deal. I paid $150 for a double bed/ private room.... More

Friendly staff. Clean and safe for solo travellers. Really interesting neighbourhood that you can wander through on the Lower East Side. Owners need to do more to get that hostel vibe going; need message boards, outings organized by the hostel. Computers to access would be nice especially if you're trying to book your next location.

A good place to stay in NYC for a great price. You stay in cute little "cabin" rooms that include a bed, light and a small night table with drawers. All you need for a short stay. Very convenient location, I arrived in NYC via BoltBus (on the 6th Ave location) and only had to walk 15 minutes to reach... More

This cosy hostel was nearby to all places we wanted to see. They have tiny rooms, but the beautiful terrace covers up for that. The shared toilets were always clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

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.
