There's no getting away from it: the accommodation at The Bowery House is basic and miniscule. There are essentially three types of room: cabins, bunks and one regular (yet nonetheless tiny) private double room. None, aside from the Prince room (the double), have walls which reach the floor's ceiling, meaning the rooms are open at the top. The most standard original cabins must measure all of three metres squared, if that, and feature a single, army-style bed although the linens are far superior to what the former resident soldiers must have been used to. The windowless wooden walls are whitewashed aside from a single green stripe which runs along the middle and have a hook and a Bowery-themed movie poster on them. There is a small dresser in the corner, a plug socket, mason jar lamp and a couple of Ralph Lauren towels placed on the bed, that's it! The twin cabins do have a window, but, misleadingly, only sleep one, while the full cabins also have windows and sleep two and also have Ralph Lauren bath robes.
There are five different bunk rooms which sleep between 2 and 12 people. Two of these are unisex (one for boys, Nolita, and one for girls, Elizabeth) which each sleep six and have individual lockers. The other three bunks are Museum (which sleeps 8 and has a view of the New Museum of Contemporary Art), Bowery (which sleeps 12 and also looks onto the Bowery) and Peppers (the only of the bunk rooms which sleeps 2).
The only completely private room is the red Prince room, which although still very small indeed, has a double bed, its own WC, a chest of drawers, flatscreen television, individual heating and Ralph Lauren bathrobes.
All rooms share bathroom facilities. There is one bathroom per floor each with three monsoon showers, three marble vanities, two WCs, a heated black and white checkered floors and Red Flower toiletries.
