The place is a colorful and warm loft. full of nice people who are sharing their life.
you will be living with us and hopefully make this home an even nicer place :)
i have been traveling a lot and i think i know what someone is looking for when he arrive in a new city, i always want to be a good host and feel like my guest are enjoying themselves. and have a great time.
There is in the loft :
a nice and spacious living room( with flat TV with Roku 2 netflix and hulu plus, DVD player comfortable cough, plant, playstation 2 )
a dance space with Mirror, speaker and an piano ( the space is open and available to everybody. if you are an artist feel free to use it when ever you like it. to practice to have fun and just live it. we use it to have rehearsal to practice to stretch )
7 private room furnished and closed by their own door ( your room will be the new room who has just been redecorated and refurnished. it is the bigest room and also the one with the highest ceiling. the room will be directly in front of the entrance door. so you will also have more pricvacy than everyone else knowing that you will have a direct access to your room)
1 kitchen ( it s a full equipped kitchen with microwave, expresso machine,mixer, stove, oven and all the good tools to make nice and tasty food)
1 big bathroom with personal space for everybody( yes only one bathroom but don t worry it s fine everybody wake up at different time, go to sleep at different time everybody have different life and different schedule. so it works pretty well) u may be will have to wait sometime a lil bit to go in but really not a big deal and it doesn t happen often and you can always knock at the door to let know the person that you waiting)
the building and around is really artistic. you can meet people from Actor, movie director, photograph, Musician or any different people
Since this is in an artist's warehouse/loft you will hear the sounds of the city. You will hear music from the neighbors. You will hear all the things that make a city a city (which provides the inspiration we LOVE).
in the Loft there is mostly dancers from different schools, different background, work or in freelance or in other artistic field like theater or music producer. there is also people who have other job who are in vacation like biologist or working in the finance or dentist.
and people from different countries and coming from different cultures. we are coming from all over it could be from spain, norway , sweden , italy , caribbean, Australia. it s just nice to discover people and discover their life it like traveling in your own place.
we have 4 small fishes and some lovely plant :)
iINSIDE THE LOFT
It is important to note that the loft is situated in a creative but still urban & industrial neighborhood, which we love, but is not for everybody. There are a few little quirks, that make it unique.
the roommates are really nice they will talk to you and make you feel comfortable if you allowed them to. meaning that by being also nice and polite to them they will be also nice and they love to meet new people.
don t hesitate to ask questions to me or my roommate if you have any concern.
it s a comfortable place where everybody feel home.
the most important thing is to smile and to just enjoy your stay
the spirit of the place is to express your happiness and to share it with everybody. :)
the place is unique by the way that it s made and the fact that there is mostly dancer. so you could come home and see us practice or have rehearsal
or you could come out of the building and see the set of a movie filming.
There is free parking, Laundry card washer & dryer in building, Free WiFi, dvd, hdtv, clean linens & towels.
Interaction with Guests
i will be present in the loft
I am easily reachable through phone, text or email.
my roommate will also be there.
the neighborhood is young most of the people are around 20-35 year old i would say.
it is a mix between hipsters, Afro-american , Hispanics and europeans
it is a safe neighborhood. there is always people in the train and police around.
my roommates girls or boys always are sometime have to comeback by themselves alone really late and they have no complain about it.
the neighborhood is a mix of factory, company, cafe, restaurants, bar, shops loft building 24 hours supermarkets, pizerias 2nd hand store, vintages
it use to be an industrial neighborhood so you can for example walk and have a factory in front of a nice park with a building full of loft where people live and next to it a store 1 block later a restaurant next to a cafe. that what made the neighborhood interesting and fun.
there is a lot of street art around. what is really nice to look.
the Loft is in East Williamsburg / Bushwick, Brooklyn less than 5min to the L Train on Montrose avenue Stop or Morgan ave stop.
it will be 5 stops from Manhattan. 15 min from Union Square and 30min from Times Square.
the L train is link to all the other train so it is really convenient
There is also the J train who is around 10/12 min walk who go directly to downtown Manhattan or queens
and the G train whois around 15 min walk from the loft who go to downtown Brooklyn or Queens
1 hour from JFK airport (in public transport)
1h30 from Laguardia airport (in public transport)
Uber is available
No Smoking inside the Loft
Everybody do their own dishes
Respect the other roommates
empty the bathtub filter after you finish your shower
no loud noises when the other roommates are sleeping
the other rules are just common sense.
but otherwise be happy, enjoy your stay in the loft and smile :)
A super cheap NYC room in a really great location. The room is Hong Kong cubicle style, with not enough room to stand in, but plenty of other places to stand around in the loft. I recommend ear plugs, as the noise in the buildings hallways echoes loudly at any given hour,for light sleepers. But my friend and I completely enjoyed our stay and it suited us just fine. Julien checked in to make sure everthing was okay, and communication was clear and easy. Thanks for hosting!
thanks for the review Enrique
yes as it said on the description "Since this is in an artist's warehouse/loft you will hear the sounds of the city. You will hear music from the neighbors. You will hear all the things that make a city a city (which provides the inspiration we LOVE)."
and also Enrique you were in the room of the other listing the room upstairs not the new room who is on this listing. the room on this listing is much bigger so not like hongkong cubicle style and it is also father from the hallways and the neighbors.
I apologize for the noise that u got Enrique . i wich i knew earlier so i would have been able to put you in an other room and help you better
have a good day Enrique
Everything was perfectly organized! Julien and his roomates were very friendly and helped me with every question I had. If you are visiting NYC, it's the perfect place to stay at!
Great trip, cool place with nice roommates. Trendy area with lots to see and great access to Manhattan. Great communication from Julien
Julien nous a vraiment bien accueilli. Le loft correspond exactement au descriptif. Nous nous sommes sentis à l'aise dans le quartier.
Julien is a great host even with his busy schedule. Everything was ready when we arrived with space for our stuff in the fridge, kitchen shelf and bathroom shelf.
The appartement is well located in Brooklyn and easy to go everywhere with the subway.
We meet the different roommates who are all very nice and diverse background!
Julien was a great host ! He really made us feel at home straight away, showing us the loft and all the facilities in the middle of the night after a delayed flight. We had such comfy stay in the warm and cosy loft. The loft was really clean and had everything we needed for our weeks stay. The location is great, so close the the subway and surrounding cafes and markets. We would stay here again for sure !
I had a great time in NY.
Here is good location to Manhattan,Brooklyn,and more , near the station and great host Juilen.
I don't have enough time to communication to Juilen and other share mates because I went sightseeing NY.
But Juilen and other share mates say "Hi, how are you?or how was going?" to me every morning and evening.
They are so kindly and smiley everytime.
I recommend this house to all travelers.
Special thanks, Juilen.
