I stayed 1 night with 3 other girls and it was perfect for us. We booked last minute and James was a fantastic host, it was super easy to contact him by text and he even gave us a ride to the city that night ! The neibourghood is a bit rough but it isnt unsafe. The room is clean, nothing too fancy, and was definitely fine for 1 night. We were travelling by car and it was about 20-30 minutes to the city. I would definitely suggest James place if you will travel by car. Thanks again for everything James :) !
James is an excellent host. He gave us a lot of good tips and it was a pleasure to talk to him. The room was like described and it is a short way to Manhattan. It was a pity, that we hadn't more time to talk to each other.
Truly minutes to either Downtown or Midtown Manhattan, day or night. Also, very close to Newark and EWR. I was travelling entirely by public transport and had no difficulty. There is a Light Rail station about five minutes' walk away with service to Jersey City and Hoboken for ferry, New Jersey Transit trains, or PATH connections. Returning after 2:00 a.m. one evening, I took a cab ($8) from an ample queue waiting directly outside Journal Square PATH station where there was also an all-night pharmacy and general store. The 'Jersey' geography is not a problem.
A very friendly welcome to a clean, comfortable, house in a quiet street. The room is very large and has a comfortable bed, adjustable window blinds and ceiling fan.
In New Jersey to visit family in the Pascack Valley, I found most basic hotels were located convenient to expressways, but remote from public transport. Therefore, it was only after I was aboard The Adirondack coming down from Montreal that I decided to look up AirBnB in order to find lodging for that very night somewhere where humans lived. Noticing that my mobile phone reception was getting spotty, I rushed to request a booking at James's house and then lost contact for several hours until we got into the Hudson Valley. Unflappable, James had handled everything in his stride, arranging for his housemates to let me in. By the time the train pulled into Penn Station, I had detailed directions and we knew almost exactly when I'd arrive.
In short, I would unhesitatingly recommend James's room as a clean, quiet, friendly place to stay. It is particularly suited for anyone relying on public transport whose visit takes them to Manhattan or northeastern New Jersey or who is flying in or out of EWR.
Very good host ! Very enthousiastic and welcoming ! We had a lots of great talks, it was nice to meet him and his roommate.
We had a great time in his appartment, and the bed was already done, and ok :)
It was a home away from my home in Virginia. The reservation was done in quick time and James was helpful from the very beginning. The home is well located and since I already visited the locality before I found the place very comfortable. And stay? It was really good. James had already kept the place ready for my arrival and I loved the privacy and homely comfort. Thank you James
James was a great host. He went out of his way to make sure I was completely comfortable in his neighborhood and apartment (including picking me up from the train station and driving me around the area showing me the closest train stops, grocery stores and anything else i might need to know). The bedroom and apartment were very clean and James provided me with everything I needed. James was interesting and fun to chat with and he and his housemates were all very welcoming. I would definitely recommend James as a host and look forward to the next time.
I'm from Alaska but am based in NYC. I get very excited about places with great food and enjoyable people. NYC has both, but so do many places across the US and around the world, so I love to travel!
