It was so difficult to charge ones electronics!! The plug would fall out of the socket or it just wouldn’t charge. I have a small iPad mini that couldn’t be charged I’m guessing because if the voltage. I am all for keeping the “integrity” of the old building but, this is a necessity. Sorry guys. Update your outlets at least. My phone never reached 100% even overnight!! Ridiculous.

Falsely advertised private rooms. It` s a row of small cabins with no ceiling, comparable to sleeping in cubicles in a dormitory. Otherwise, the place has all the necessities you look for in a hostel. Good location, friendly staff and decent bathrooms.

Greetings, We are a small boutique hostel, small in space, but we are conveniently located, great staff that is available 24 hours, and common areas exclusive to only our guests. The open-ceiling concept is us also paying homage to the originality of the building and rich history of Bowery road. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you, but we thank you for staying with us. If you would like to give us another try, please let us know, we do offer bigger cabins when they are available. Best Regards, Ghia P

Great hostel for downtown NYC. Rooms are privates which is awesome- just realize you don't get a lot of space. Rooms are very clean. Staff is super friendly. Washrooms are adequate. Location is great!

My biggest challenge was the sounds while trying to sleep. Even with the earplugs they graciously provide, the door make A LOT of noise when people go in and out of their rooms and with an open ceiling design, there just wasn’t enough noise buffer for Arron’s who were not trying to be quieter for others trying to sleep.

Greetings, Yes, we do apologize for some of the doors as they will make a noise when opening or closing regardless of how quiet some of our guests are. But we do value your feedback and we work hard to fix any issues we can. We do advise our guests to keep it as quiet as possible in the cabin areas as they are for resting only. We're sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused, but we thank you so much for staying with us. We hope you can come back again, as we have bigger cabins to offer! Best Regards, Ghia P

It was a cool, interesting, and neat experience if you're into staying at "edgy" places for a change. I would recommend this to most travelers who have an artsy side that they want time to indulge and escape into their aesthetic engagements. I had great time, but it is hard sometimes to get sleep. It is New York, after all- what can you expect?
