The Blue Moon Hotel on Orchard Street welcomes guests to the Lower East Side. This new, boutique Manhattan hotel leads the resurgence of the landmark old New York neighborhood. The hotel is located along cobble stone streets once occupied by push cart vendors, pickle packers, butchers, and bakers. Now, New York City's historic past has come to life in the authentic yet modern and comfortable neighborhood hotel.

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.

tl;dr: Hotel abruptly canceled my reservation + I'm pretty sure the hotel marked my card as invalid because they wanted to give the room to someone else + no actual issues with my credit card + reservation department phone number stopped working + the front desk stopped

Booked, not notified, contacted the hostel no response and unfortunately I had to look for alternatives. Then they charged me full stay price and no-show fee on my card even though I warned them immediately. They were not willing to return the money stating only their policies

I was booking the room for my niece, paying on a travel site....Bookings. This prompts the issue of not having the card at check in. It can be worked out with an authorization form and ID emailed in. I called before I booked and was told this would be fine. Later I was told we

the bathroom is terrible. I can adjust the water temperature so I have to suffer the hottest water that nearly killed me. Plus, the roommates are also terrible. They made too much noise in the morning

Sorry can't help here. I am a 50 year old with no children whatsoever. I would e-mail the hotel with your question. I am not sure what is NYC's laws on what in the US would be called "underage minors". 18 is legal age of adulthood in most states (just drinking age is higher 21 in most states). A teen can be an emancipated adult at 16 meaning a teen can be declared independent from parents in a court of law at 16. With hostels I would imagine regulations would be lax since most countries the age is lower. Still call or e-mail hostel to see what their policy for under age 18 booking of reservations.

I slept in bunk beds in mix dormitory and all dormitory looks more or less the same - the only change is the layout or distribution of the beds. on each level there are only 4 rooms.

Is the cafe open?
The short answer about the cafe in the Blue Moon being open is: NO. I think there are plans to re-open it in the future, but it was not open when I stayed there, You might call the Blue Moon before your stay to see if, in fact, the cafe has re-opened.
