Read the entire profile so there are no surprises.
Please take your time and read everything carefully, so that you know what you are getting for your money.
The bedroom is private, clean and comfortable, with a queen size bed that can accommodate one or two individuals. It is not a huge room, meaning it's small, but it is comfortable.
Our place is your home away from home. You are booking a room not an entire apartment. Access to the kitchen and the bathroom is included but not the entire apartment. Which means no lounge area, unless we invite you to, which I tend to do if I am not busy studying.
Here's what you get:
a queen size bed
A/C and ceiling fan
Additional blankets and pillows as needed
access to kitchen from 9am until 10pm
We are conveniently located near trains and buses.which gives you convenience minus the downtown prices.
The apartment is located near the number #1 train and C train lines. As well as the buses 4, 5, 3, 100 and 101
NYC is a colorful place, often loud and packed with people, but the block we live on is quiet and you will be able to get a good night sleep, which will allow you to refresh and recharge yourself for a busy city. Keep in mind, New York is noisy and lively all around and it will take a bit of adjusting to. However, though my area can be described as colorful, you are on a residential block that is quiet and as safe as any area in New York City.
We are native new yorkers who know the city quite well, so if you need tips on how to save and enjoy your stay don't hesitate to ask us for help.
In order to make your stay easier, please remember to email your arrival dates and times to the airport so we can best estimate your arrival to my home
It is important you tell me in advance about your arrival and departure time both to the airport and my home. I work and will need to make proper arrangements for both arrival and departure. I need to know in advance, which means, please do not wait til the last minute
Our goal is to make your stay fun and easy..so please feel free to ask questions.
I do recommend you do some research on NYC so you can save money. People wonder how safe NYC is. The fact is every City has a certain amount of crime. However when it comes to tourist the biggest crimes are usually committed by vendors and cab drivers who take advantage of visitors who do not know their rights. In order to secure your stay, research and do not hesitate to ask questions.
Anyway I am here to help you enjoy NYC and things as easy as possible

You get what you pay for for. A small stuffy room. Do not ever walk into her lounge room which is definitely out of bounds.
You are right, the room was stuffy and it is small. And the lounge is off limits as I posted on the rules. If people took the time to read the profiles and the rules they would know what they are getting for their money. At $73 a night you are not going to get the Hilton in NYC. I really wish the room was larger myself, but it isn't.
I have tons of details on the profile giving individuals the option of going for another type of place. I do not prove coffee, food, etc. I am a working person who does this to supplement my rent not get rich. I offer a bed and sheets. The towels are available if people ask.
Sadly many of us New Yorkers have to do this to pay our rent...we charge according to the rents we have to pay. Visitors see a big City but have no idea what it takes to live in it. To be honest for if its another city you can get a lot more for $73 in NYC its tricky
Room a little small but it was expected,
Rosa and her boyfriend were very kind and helpful.
A great experience! Rosa and Joe were kind, nice, and helpful people. They are the best!
The room is pretty good: clean, with A/C, queen size bed, all that you can see on the website. There are no surprises.
I wasn't sure about the location because their place is located uptown, but I realized that it is not far, just 20min away from times square. And you have 2 subways nearby and also the bus.
I strongly recommend this room!
It is really nice first experience for me and my friend used airbnb.com. Our trip in New York City was really wonderful and unforgettable. Rosa is a really nice host. We lived her apt for 5days and 4 nights. The location is quite convenience for tourist because it quite easy to get subway from Rosa's apt. It is quite warm for Rosa prepared quite a lot stuff for the guest. It is worth for recommended.
Rosa's house very nice,and landlord is also very kindly.
Rosa is a very attentive and pleasant host. When we first arrived, Rosa has already prepared very well for us: ear plugs for me as I told her I'm a light sleeper, lotions, and towels. She always makes sure the place is tidy and clean and provides us coffee in the mornings. My mom and I enjoyed our stay there.
I loved staying with Rosa. She is very welcoming. Her place is just a short distance from the subway - very convenient! While the room was small, the bed was very comfortable. . . and the shower is awesome!
The place is perfect, as the location, and Rosa is full of joy, a real pleasure! We know where we are going to stay next time in New York!
Rosa is so wonderful - just friendly enough to know that she cares while still hands-off enough for you to feel like you are having a private vacation. The room was very nice and so was the neighborhood. We often walked back at 1 am or later and always felt safe. Easy subway access to anywhere. The apartment is a NYC apartment so there are cracks in the sink, chips off some of the paint - that is just part of being in NYC. If you don't like things a little gritty, a vacation in NYC is probably not right for you anyway. The apartment and all of the sheets, towels, etc are spotlessly clean. If you want a real NYC experience and a lovely host, you should stay here.
