Loved the atmosphere, the theme, and the staff was incredible. Roof top garden is a perfect place to chill out and relax. Perfect neighborhood and close to trains that will take you uptown or downtown. Walking distance for shops, bars,

Single room is a wooden cabin. It allows somewhat privacy but you can still hear the person snoring next door. No ceilings. Beds are short. You have to bend your knees in order to fit. Bathrooms can be considered as clean. You can't compare it to a hotel but overall it is a high class hostel.

The location is key. In the middle of a beautiful area of NY, bars and restaurants everywhere. Would definitely recommend this place. A word of warning, the rooms are comically small, but you shouldn't need to use it that much anyway!

Bowery house was an ok place to stay, but nothing more. You could hear the night clubs below and it was very hot at night. Very small rooms ! When ur checking in, you have to pay either 50 $ ore they keep your passport in case of any damage. We gave our password, which they just had under the counter, not in a safe as promised. Also not impressed with the service, the hostel couldn't find our reservation at first, and the guy was pretty rude about it !

The price for a private room at this hostel is very reasonable considering its location in Manhatten. The private room is very small and the beds are short. The rooms are like cubicles, located in one very large room, making it very easy to hear anything going on in adjacent rooms. The bathrooms were stylish and kept clean. The staff at the desk were friendly and knowledgeable. I've stayed here twice and will return again. It suited all my needs for a place to stay on weekend trips in NYC.
