Hello travelers!

Joseph and I are roommates who rent 2 rooms on Airbnb (this room and a double room).

Here you will share our home with us and possibly meet other guests who are visiting New York too.

We are open to all types of guests, whether you just need a room and wish to keep to yourself, or would like to hang out and share stories with us.

We look forward to meeting you!

The space

Super spacious apartment, Gay friendly, Pet friendly, Bright, Full of light, with Creative, Well-travelled hosts.

New York is expensive; not only to visit, but also to live, so we got creative with our walk-in closet. Yes, originally a closet, it is now a very small, but very cozy private room.

- Private room with single/twin bed
- Clean sheets, blankets and towel.
- Wifi access.
- Large fan for summer nights
- Storage space under bed, shelving above bed and a four-drawer nightstand.

Guest access

- New York City maps and guide books
- Printer to print tickets, maps etc
- Hairdryer
- TV with Netflix
- Full kitchen
- AC in the living areas

Interaction with guests

We all tend to have busy schedules, but when we are home and not working we welcome guests to hang out with us if they'd like to

Other things to note

The room has no window and can be hot in summer, but there is a large fan mounted to the wall above the bed. The rest of the apartment has air conditioning.

We thank you for the good vibes you bring to our home and only ask for the following.

Please do not bring guests back to the apartment who are not included on your booking.

We appreciate that you clean up after yourself in the shared living spaces and that you wash your dishes directly after use.

In the bathroom please remove any hair from the drain after you shower to keep it from clogging. Please also dry your feet before exiting the shower as the floor is very slippery when wet.

We live in an old building that has delicate water pipes. To keep things flowing smoothly please only flush toilet paper (no paper towels or face wipes etc) We appreciate your care and patience :)

Liz and Joseph are great! The room is cozy (perfect if you just need a place to rest your head). Great location with easy access to any place you might want to see.

The apartment was very clean the bathroom was easily accessible the only problem was the heat in the closet space. Even with the fan on it was hard to get to sleep at night until very late because of the Heat. I would recommend this for later in the fall or the winter.

Liz's and Joseph's appartement is located in Brooklyn - Bushwick and is very close to the subway stations M and L-line .... it takes about 20 minutes to Manhattan. My room was a former walk-in closet ... very small but very cozy and comfortable. I had enough space for all my things ... dont worry about the little room. It's only for sleeping not for living :-). During summertime it can be very warm inside the room ... use the fan on the wall ... it's very helpful.

Nice and warm hosts. Good place if you wanna discover NYC, its only 8 minutes walking to the L train station wich takes you to Manhattan. Groceries, delis and shops in the area.

Perfect hosts. Perfect neighbourhood. Accurate description of room and apartment. This really is the ideal place for the traveller looking for a great environment on a budget. I doubt you will find such a good vibe elsewhere. Your hosts will respect your schedule/privacy, but also be kind and warm if you need advice or company. I highly recommend staying here on your next trip!
