"Manhattan’s Cheapest Places to Stay" featuring The Bowery House

via ANIMAL New York

This is a hotel that really wants you to feel like you’re in a very cool Downtown New York City establishment and for the most part, it succeeds. For under $50, I stayed in a sparse but well-decorated 12-bed room with relatively comfortable bunks, homey decorations, and two fire escapes that could easily double as balconies or smoking zones for the thrifty NYC tourist. But the Bowery House’s crown jewel is easily its shared roof deck, a beautiful, sweeping expanse of astroturf and Christmas lights overlooking the heart of the Bowery.

I’d say that for under $50 a night, you’d be hard pressed to find a nicer place to stay in this neighborhood.
