I stayed at the Bowery Whitehouse for my first trip to "the big city". It's close to nearly everything if you're taking the metro. Nelson was exceptionally nice, the beds were clean and the room was warm. It was exactly what we needed for the type of excursion we were there for. If you're going to New York to spend the majority of your time exploring the city (because that's what it is for!) and you only need a bed to rest until you do it all over again the next day, then I recommend the place! Be advised that there are no outlets in the rooms, you have to plug your phone in, in the bathrooms or in the lobby. The rooms have no ceiling, but that was expected, they definitely maximized the space. But over all for a first experience it was great. I felt safe and secure the whole time and even though you can hear pretty much everything going on around you, if you're as exhausted as you should be after a full day and night in the city it won't matter, you'll sleep hard. Check in was a breeze and check out was even easier. I would book again.
