4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

Its OK for the price. Location is excelent. 2 mins to subway station.
Just bed and peg coat - everithing i need. Looks like hostels in asia, but cleaner.
If you dont sleep weel, take earplugs. Staff is OK. Not so friedly, but correct.

Nice and friendly staff (front desk is open 24/7). Excellent location - steps away from NYU, Greenwich Village, the Meatpacking District, Ground Zero, SoHo and New York's hottest night spots, restaurants and best shopping. Safe and lively part of the No-Ho District of Manhattan. Would recommend to travellers who wants value for money...it's one of the most affordable in NYC. :)

I stayed here when moving to NYC as somewhere cheap & close to where i was apartment hunting. The noise was unbearable. They did room construction a number of mornings from 630am. Very loud drilling into concrete floors!! There's no powerpoints except in reception. The bathrooms are decrepit. I kept waking up with bites. Only redeeming feature is its location.

stayed here for 3 nights and had a very small cell. they did advertise it as very small and they were not kidding. this is a very low cost place but this is reflected in the accoadation.
one of the two staff was very helpfull and the other was not i think i was actually a distraction from his sleep.
if you like loud snoring and crampt space poor hygene and poor lighting this is the place for you

Room Tip: book somewhere else.

Nov 10, 2012
When we arrived at the Bowerey Whitehouse (which is an absolute dump not worthy for animals to sleep in let alone humans), we enquired if there had been any recent bed bug activity. The girl at reception said no. We checked the bed in room 203 and could not find evidence of bed bugs, as it was covered in a protective bed casing. We left our luggage and went out for the evening.

When we returned around 2 am, we saw one bug on our bed. We collected the bug and took it reception. The guy working at that time said it "may not be a bed bug", but he suggested moving us to a room on the fourth floor. We asked him to contact other nearby hotels to see if we could move hotels rather, but everything was booked up. So we went to room 406. We slept, but around 4 am, we awoke, itchy, and when we turned on the light there were 20-30 bugs crawling all over the bed. My wrists, ankles, back and leg are covered in swollen, itchy red spots. I have bits on my face near my eye and cheek.
This place flat out lied to us and deserves to be shut down! When I asked if they were going to shut down to do fumigation and alert the other travellers, the reception people did not seem concerned at all.DO NOT STAY HERE!!!

Room Tip: Do not stay here!!

We stayed here earlier this year. It was a great place to stay for a couple on a budget trying to enjoy NYC. Rooms are small, which was fine with us because we only used the room to sleep, which is what most people do at hostels! Best part is the location...10 minute walk to St. Marks and union sq! I will be staying here again next month!

Room Tip: Request a room away from bathroom and street.

I stay at the Whitehouse pretty much ever time I come to NYC. As a woman who frequently travels alone this is a great place for me- I have my own room with a door that locks firmly, but it's a fraction of the price of a hotel room. If you know what to expect it's a great choice- the rooms are tiny but have sturdy doors and good locks, the floors can be noisy during his occupancy times but it's NYC and that's just the way things are, and the bathrooms have always been clean and I've never needed to wait for a shower. The only downside is how hard it is to charge electronics, as outlets are few and far between. Usually the desk will let you leave devices behind the desk to charge though, and really if you want to charge your laptop that's what Starbucks is for- this is New York after all.
