The Space

You are welcome to enjoy our Private spacious basement room with your own private bathroom in the basement.

The basement is not a grand place, it's just a livable clean place to sleep at night. We have turned it into a room with sofa bed for two and a side bed for another person (ie. when our own personal guests come here, we use this space). It's a good place when someone comes and wants to see new york city, without having to pay for a huge amount to sleep at night.

If you are okay with the listing and description, please go ahead and book the place via airbnb. If you have further questions, please let me know.

Again, The basement has a large sofa bed that can be easily used as a full size bed if needed. It now has a memory foam mattress topper for good sleep. There is an extra twin bed for the third quest as you can see in the pictures above. If more than one person is staying, I need to know their names, who they are/ how they are related to you. I also need why you are renting out via airbnb (whether you are a tourist or would just need the room for a few days for work purpose)
The basement is itself very cool. We do not put AC in the basement. There is a rotating fan for use if you prefer it colder.
*I am always willing to consider special requests based on your needs whenever feasible
*Please note: before making a reservation, kindly have a photo and a few verifications.
*I prefer not to lock basement. You don't need a key. There is always someone in the house (mostly).
During winter (NOV - MAR), if you want to come stay here, you are provided with rotating heater to warm the space. The basement has a tower heater.
If you wish to stay for more than a few days and would like to avoid AirbnbFees, email me to block dates so you may pay me on arrival for the days you would like to stay longer. You must book at least for a few days via airbnb.
If you have any further questions about my place, please message me before booking.

Guest Access

Guests will have access to the Basement room, Bathroom, Back yard, Back door entrance.
Internet WIFI access code/ pswd comes with your confirmed reservation through airbnb. Please read your confirmed reservation carefully. I regret to inform that Kitchen use is NOT available for preparing food due to previous bad experiences.

Interaction with Guests

Check-in time is usually 7:00 ish P.M; however, if you need to check in early, I can ask my family / roommates in the house to open the back door for you to enter in during the day....but I cannot guarantee this. Please ask me about this beforehand. Check out time is 12:00 NOON / 1 PM or before that time so that we have time to change sheets and prepare the room for next guests. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I am very straight forward and I will answer your questions by email, or text msg, or in person - better.

The Neighborhood

Neighborhood is a quiet private place with shops in a few blocks. Jersey City - Journal Square's Indian street / Newark avenue is 6 mins walk away. Convenient and shopping stores are around the corner. TWIN City SuperMarket Grocery store is 1 block away.

Getting around

There is also Weekend free street parking on both sides of the streets for guests with a car. But please be mindful of the street signs. You may park in front of any house in any nearby street that doesn't have a drive through, fire hazard space, etc. Also be aware of 2 hour street cleaning time (usually 10 AM – 12 Noon on alternate weekdays) to avoid getting parking tickets. You need permit from the Jersey City parking authority office address 394 Central Ave, Jersey City, NJ for weekday parking. Please search the internet for their office hours. It costs 3 dollars for a weekday parking.
If you are arriving late at night, it may be difficult to find parking. You would need to search for parking on other streets/lanes nearby Romaine Avenue.
Please use search engine or MAP ENGINE on the internet to get to know about public transportation in this area. Our house is located in Romaine Avenue, jersey city, NJ 07306. Please do your research about parking and commuting before asking questions or before making any reservations.
Our Public transit is very convenient with PATH Train to NYC or Buses to NYC. You can walk to my place from the PATH station in 7 – 10 mins. If you have luggage, you may take a cab from Journal Square PATH station to my house and it costs only $5 dollars (4.5 to 4.75 dollars exact fare).

Other Things to Note

This is not a hotel or a motel. We do not have maids. I usually clean / vacuum once a week. Sheets are washed and changed per new guest arrival. You may change sheets yourself if you are staying for more than a couple of days. Just ask me.
This is a basement, hence, it may smell a little damp if it rained the previous day. Please turn on the wall exhaust fan when required. I do not even notice the difference, but sensitive guests may be annoyed with little humidity. Otherwise this is one of the most comfortable basements compared to nearby house basements.
The basement is not friendly for very tall people. Please watch your head at the entrance of the basement door.
I may/ may not have shampoo in the bathroom.
***Bring your own towels with you - and - use them***
However, let me know if you need something that is not in the bathroom. I may allow you to use spare toiletries.

  • The place was cozy, the bathroom was clean and the host really nice!! My 2 friends and I really enjoyed our stay as the house was pretty close to Manhattan.
    I would definitely stay here again!

  • Staying at Ms K's was exactly what we were looking for. We like to explore the areas we visit and only needed a bed for the night. Ms K accommodated our arrival itinerary for which we are very grateful. The accommodation is conveniently situated close to Journal Square and PATH station from where you can go in any direction in NY within 30min. Thank you again for your friendly welcome Ms K!

  • It was a nice stay; a private space and even though it's in the basement had good room temperature. It's in a good location, a few blocks away from journal square and the price is worthy. When I got there Ms. was not there but her and her hosts are very flexible with opening the door and being able to come in and out. Would definitely stay there again.

  • Had a great stay with MS in Jersey City. Ms was great. It was my first Airbnb experience and Ms helped me through the verification process. She answered all my questions. She was welcoming and accommodating. When I left a article of clothing behind, she notified me and offered to hold on to it for me. She has a great location. Her pricing is more than fair. I am a frequent visitor to Jersey City , and I plan on staying with Ms in the future. Don't expect the Four Seasons , it is what it is , but it was plenty perfect for me.

  • Ms. K was nice and gave me a clean spare room on the ground floor along with a fresh towel. I wish the pillows were a bit nicer - they were very old, but all the sheets and bedding were clean, so no complaints there. I left very early in the morning for the airport and the front door was locked from the inside so I had a moment of panic that I was stuck inside the house and wouldn't make my flight. Thankfully, after a bit of investigation I found that the back door was unlocked and I was able to go round the back. It would have been helpful to know that before 4 am, when I didn't want to wake anyone but I also had no idea how to open the dang door, lol! Over all it was a good experience and I would go back again!

    Response from Ms. K:

    Thank you for your stay and your review. It was good to have you as a guest. I wish I had asked you about your departure flight time. I am sorry you had to look around to find back door exit... wished it wasn't that difficult Overall, I am happy that you stayed and will be glad to be of any help next time :)

  • that was a nice room even it's a basement. but regarding to the price and convenient transportation, that's very sweet deal. I planned to go to NYC on May 20th and the same day is NYU graduation ceremony, no cheap hotel to book in Jersey City or you can book really far hotel for at least $100. I am glad that I saw Ms.K's nice room for the night, and she also waited until 12 AM open the door for us. And about the parking, there is a nice parking lot near Academy street only 7$ for overnight up to 6 AM( couldn't remember exactly ). I had a good time.

  • We had a pleasant stay here. Everything was nice and clean. Be aware that the room is in the basement, so you might hear the people above from time to time and the room is a little dark. Nevertheless the positive side is you are free to come and go whenever you wish. The location is good, 5 min to PATH train and 15 min ride to downtown. So if you are looking for a nice place to sleep and explore NYC during the day this is your place. Also feel free to ask any question Ms. K will help you.

    May 2014
  • Nice host, the room was great, ten minute walk to the train, no complaints! Will come back again!

    May 2014
  • We had a nice tme there. Although we only spend one night, Ms K really took care about us and she was so permissive about our arrival time. The room and facilities were exactly as she defins them in the webpage. It was a good experience!
