I loved staying L's place. The room is nice & big ,the whole apartment is very cosy and the bathroom is clean. Everything you need is in walking distance & it is super easy to get around using the NJ transit, like I did. Check-in & check-out were super easy & L. is very accessible. Very good choice.

This is a wonderful place in Newark! It's just a few blocks to the train to NYC, and also around the corner from multiple buses that go to Montclair. I got a weekly train pass to NYC (around $45) and it also includes free rides on the bus and light rail :) The 13 bus takes you from the train station to the front door which was so nice on one of the freezing days here. The room has been decorated differently than in the picture and is extra charming and comfortable! Everyone in the neighborhood was really nice. There are a lot of Spanish restaurants and bodegas. Around the corner was a great bodega with lots of fresh produce that we liked going to. The host was very sweet, reliable, and gets back to you very quickly. Thank you so much!!
