20) The Bowery House, 220 Bowery, NoHo
Not to be confused with the luxury Bowery Hotel a couple blocks away, this is the extreme discount version, with bunks starting at $59 a day. The lovingly restored onetime cabins for WWII soldiers now are offered with Ralph Lauren towels, free WiFi, yoga classes, Dutch-style bikes, spacious rooftop deck, celebrity chef restaurant, DJ’d bar, and even bathrooms that, while shared, have Italian marble vanities, heated floors, and high-pressure rain forest showers. Z/K Hospitality’s motto for these 104 beds unveiled in 2011: “austere luxury.” Our motto would be: game changer.
