I stayed here when I was 22 years old. I was a single guy, adventurous and broke. That is exactly the type of person the Bowery White House is for. $35 a night for a place to sleep in Manhattan! This is unheard of. And there is a reason for that. You don't get a "room", you get a communal... More

This is the worst hostel I've ever seen. Bedbugs everywhere. This place should be illegal. Don't stay there. Would rather sleep on the street than go to this disgusting place!!!! I stayed for one night but didn't sleep at all. U could hear everything and the "rooms" were really small. The worst!!!!

Pictures are telling everything... Disgusting and dirty place with unpleasant staff. And I am still wondering how it can be called "Hotel"!!!!!!!!!! The worst accommodation experience ever. It´s simple: Don´t go there!

So, positives! Interesting area, close walk to china town and attaboy (excellent cocktail bar), close to public transport. I was coming into this accommodation after staying in hostels, so the private rooms/stalls were an improvement on shared rooms. But if you're going there expecting a hotel room, you're going to be disappointed. The thing that stands out about my trip... More

It was horrible! We got there at 11.30pm at the person at the front desk was already unpolite and rough. He asked us to go up in the room to check and pay right after. So we went there and were totally shocked! Like a prison, there was door next to door, bathrooms disgusting, the walls don't even go up... More

I stayed here for two nights because I was in NYC for a sporting event. I did not need much as I was out all day. I stayed at a similar property up the street so I knew what the rooms and shower facilities were going to be like. I paid $94 for two night however I disagree with a... More
