Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Coming to JFK airport with child and baggage it was important for me to have a place with easy access. Gloria's house is in rather safe neighborhood and straight bus from airport comes very close to the place (it takes 1 hour 30 min). I had to lift my bags only several porch steps up. Gloria's friend opened door, gave me keys and instructions. We met Gloria later and she was nice and welcoming. There were a few young guests, usually busy at work and rather quiet in morning. We had some interesting conversations at nights. There are a few subway lines, we used A train in 15 min-walking distance.
    Прилетая в аэропорт Джей-Эф-Кей с большим багажом и ребенком, для меня было важно чтоб несложно было добираться до места ночлега и невысоко тащить сумки. Как раз близко у дома Глории останавливается прямой автобус из аэропорта (ехать полтора часа), а багаж поднимали только на несколько ступенек крыльца. Подруга Глории передала нам ключи, объяснила что где лежит, а вечером мы встретили и саму хозяйку, которая была вполне приветлива. В доме было уютно и спокойно. Несколько молодых постояльцев в основном были заняты на работе, а по вечерам случалось вели интересные беседы. До и от линии метро "А" мы ходили пешком около 15 минут.

  • I had such a wonderful time living at Gloria's for a week. The futon is really spacious and comfy, as is the entire house. Everyone in the house is really friendly and courteous, and I would totally recommend it to anyone else looking for a place to crash while on a short visit to NY.

  • Staying here was a great value; the house is located near a subway stop (direct line from JFK airport!) and the futon is comfy. Gloria, the host, was very kind and welcoming, even provided towels, gave me a great dinner recommendation and has a very sweet dog, so I felt comfortable staying here and absolutely would stay here again on a quick trip to New York. Very happy with my first AirBnB experience :)

I'm an avid traveler and have been to all but 5 states in the US. My favorite international destinations so far have been South America, West Africa and Cuba. I've been a host to international students for many years and enjoy opening my home to guests. I currently have a space available and I'm looking forward to hosting you! I have a open and peaceful, gay friendly place, a good resting spot for your busy NYC travels. I also have a dog who is young and very playful. The house sleeps 4 and I typically have a full home - I like it that way! Looking forward to meeting you, Gloria
