Huge basement studio apartment just 2 BLOCKS FROM TIMES SQUARE. Has private entrance & bathroom, in-room fridge with access to shared kitchen upstairs, subway station on the same block & room for 2 extra guests on airbeds on the floor. Beats a hotel!

The Space

You can rent my huge basement room with its OWN PRIVATE BATHROOM in a 2 floor, 2 BR duplex apartment. Basically, it's like a studio apartment (with no kitchen) that is attached through internal stairs to the 1BR apartment (with a kitchen) above. The room has a door that leads to the internal apartment stairs, as well as its own private exit, which leads to the building's basement hallway and then out. The room has a queen-sized bed in it, but has TONS more open space that easily accomodates two single-person air mattresses or one queen sized air mattress, which I provide.

You can treat this space as its own apartment by locking the door to the internal stairs and always using the private exit to the basement hallway. However, if you want, you have access to the upstairs living room, breakfast nook, and kitchen, which you would share with my roommate. There is a TV (with just network channels) and a DVD player in the basement room, but you are certainly allowed to also use the 34" TV (with cable), that is in the common areas upstairs. Both floors have high-speed wireless.

This amazing space is in an amazing location, just steps away from Times Square, A, C, E, N, R, Q, S, 1, 2 3 and 7 Subway lines, restaurants, bars and theaters. My best friend and roommate has his own separate entrance, bedroom and bathroom so you really will never run into him except to receive and return the keys.

This space is huge and flexible (and I personally love it), but keep in mind that it is also in our building's basement, near the washing machines, and partially under the main hallway of the building's first floor. If you are a light sleeper or easily bothered by noise outside the apartment, this is probably not the rental for you. The room has alot of installed lighting to compensate for the lack of natural light (only one small window), so you can make the room as bright or dim as you wish, but you won't see the sun from the bed. That said, even though the room is large, it still has a coziness that's amazing when you need a relaxing break from the excitement of Manhattan.

This rental is a great deal if you are visiting and want a spacious, comfortable, conveniently-located "home base" while visiting NYC.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • If you intend to frequent Times Square and the theatres then this apartment is perfect for (website hidden) location ever-- as you are steps away from everything! Great host as well- so kind, quick to respond, and super helpful. Bathroom was well stocked with toiletries, towels, etc. The mini-refrigerator also came in handy. Big studio for NY standards. Really appreciated having our own private entrance / exit. Laundry area was right next to the room. Everything was comfortable & convenient.

  • The apartment is very well localized. The room is clean and big enough to share with four people. Toby is very friendly and was flexible with our schedule to take the baggage, always respecting the time of check in and check out. He was concerned with our arriving, so helpful. It was a great stay, I really recommend it.

  • Toby was in time when we met, and he is very kind. He also let us leave our luggages in the morning so we went around NY without them.
    The room is near Times Square (not even one minute walk!), and to Port Autority (that is perfect for who arrives or leaves by bus, like me).
    The bed was very comfortable and also the inflatable mattress. The bathroom was clean.
    Everything is as it is shown!
    I will definitely stay here again!
    Thanks a lot Toby!

  • My friends and I had an excellent stay. The place is spacious, tidy, clean and comfortable. Also, is less than two blocks from Times Square, more close to a metro station and in a very safe neighborhood of New York. Toby is an excellent host, provided everything we needed and also let us beers and chocolates to make our stay even more enjoyable. A pleasure to meet Toby.

  • Great location! 3 blocks away from times square and the subway. Very convenient secondary entrance so we could come and go without bothering anyone at any time.

    April 2014
  • Our stay was perfect. We had 4 adults sleep comfortably; 2 on the bed and 2 in individual air mattresses supplied by Toby. The location was one block from the Port Authority for easy traveling and also in the middle of plenty of day/night entertainment. Toby was great and helpful when needed. Highly Recommended!

  • Toby (email hidden), and our stay was better than we expected. We were in a pinch and we were thankful to toby for allowing us to stay for the weekend at such a low rate.

  • We had a fantastic stay in NYC. The studio is perfect to crash during the night while you are visiting the city. The situation is fantastic and well prepared to all your needs.

BUPE = Busiest Unemployed Person Ever, a title I've held for the last 2 years, and which I won because I made it up! I'm an actor/singer/comedian who is often travelling for work or pleasure, anywhere from long weekends to 2 month stretches of time. I love my neighborhood, I love the theater, and I love New York, so I can give you good recommendations on things to do and see within walking distance of the apartment.
