I would have no problem with this place had it not been for the adult bed bug I saw crawling on the wall at 6am. I promptly left, but I fear I have brought them home with me. I didn’t experience any bites in my...More

Don't bother. Really. What a nightmare ! Please believe me. This is totally misrepresented on the website. At 8pm out took 20 mins to book in as the rooms (rooms huh - bunks? Closets?!) weren't ready. Noisy and grubby. No apologies for my anger about...More

Be aware, this place does not live up to the webpage. It is a very basic hostel suitable for young packpackers. It is not suitable for families or older people. There no elevators at all. Reception is on the 3rd floor and our room another...More

Dear Hilifta, Thank you for your stay and review. The Bowery House is a hostel which started as The Prince Hotel in the 1920's. The Bowery House is in a historic building less than six stories tall. Buildings built at this time in NYC with...More

I stayed just one night here which was enough. It's not really a room as more of a hostel bed with divider walls. Your ceiling will have a see through lattice looking up to a common roof that you share with 40+ other travellers. You...More

I'm not sure what I expected but if you can imagine sleeping in a toilet like cell cubicles with walls that are dividers and a grate (yes open metal grate) on the ceiling so you are essentially in an open space full of dividers, then...More

Ben P, Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear you were not happy with your stay. I'm sure you understand that land value like currencies vary from country to country and there is a big difference between Thailand/India and New York City. The...More

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 neighbourhood 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,
