  • Pay 20 dollars more and get a real room at another place. This place was awful. I had chosen this place because they had the lowest price for a single room, I ended up with sharing a floor with 120 people. This was a horrible place. You are not allowed to eat or type on your computer and the hallways are always dark, making this place a hostel from a scary movie. So creepy... Plus the worst part of it was that there is a very close nightclub nearby that plays really loud music. Just horrible..

  • Someone needs to monitor the information provided online (probably by Hostels.com) concerning the Bowery House. The directions for which subway to catch were okay, but the walking instructions point a traveler in exactly the wrong direction. The facilities work well and are clean, but are far too few for the number of "cabins". I don't mind paying for spartan accommodations; I mind paying for a cot that's too short for me. Because I'm a mere 5'4" the cots are too short for almost everyone.

  • The bathrooms were very dirty and the maids dragged the mopped on the floor as they were putting it back into the untility room creating a wet streak in the middle of the floor that I almost slipped on. Also, you need a new water heater. It is impossible to take a warm shower.
