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...

Very clean, great attention, great service. The cabins were very small but comfortable. Great option who wants to visit NY under a budget. The location is very good, with the subway aroud three blocks away.

I stayed at the Bowery House back on the first of the year to see the ball drop on New Year's '14. I chose this hostel due to a friend's recommendation and I couldn't be happier! The place has a very warm and cozy feeling, especially if you visit Manhattan during the winter months. I certainly recommned this place to... More

I had a little trouble booking a room with my credit card (my own fault)so by the time I arrived there,my room had been given away. The superman at the desk sorted me out with a cabin which I loved. They are literally cabins and the beds are not designed for tall people but still had a good nights sleep.... More

Suitcase didnt fit on the floor of the room.. No space whatsoever! However, lovely lobby area & roof top, plus friendly staff and cool decor. Stayed by myself for 2 nights & then booked an extra night.

This is not a relaxing stay. It's kind of like a dormitory but with tiny cabins, shared bathrooms, and a shared ceiling. But so what? You get a cheap, comfortable room for the night and pleasant and accommodating staff. It's not for couples or people that value privacy because you're not going to spend much time in your cabin. You're... More

Generally an amazing experience. The only minor drawback was the shared ceiling, which I don't recall being made clear in the description of the place. I made a concerted effort to be quiet, other people however didn't have such qualms!! Otherwise though it was really very good! The rooms were small for sure, but clean, light and really we didn't...
