I live in this apartment, and host travelers like yourself in the spare rooms. This is the perfect spot for those on a budget, who still want to stay in one of the best neighborhoods in NYC. Hotels in this area typically run from $250-$500 per night. From here you'll have easy access to the L and J/M/Z subway stops to get you anywhere in the city.
Be aware that many Airbnb listings which claim to be in Williamsburg, are NOT actually in the neighborhood. This place is in a prime Williamsburg location right off of Bedford Avenue, which is the bustling main street that runs through the neighborhood.
I host guests in 3 of the rooms in this apartment, so it's similar to a hostel environment (except that you get your own room!) where you'll have the opportunity to meet and interact with other travelers. The apartment is on the first floor of the building, and includes access to an open outdoor space. The room is small, but spacious enough to comfortably accommodate 1 or 2 people. The bathroom is shared. The area is very safe, and the apartment has never had a problem with rodents, roaches, or bedbugs.
Williamsburg is the artistic and cultural heart of Brooklyn, with some of the best music and nightlife in NYC. Many would agree with me that this is the best neighborhood in the entire city. There are TONS of restaurants, bars, coffee shops, boutique stores, music venues, and everything else you can possibly imagine close by. When you check in, there'll be a list of some of my favorite spots in the neighborhood waiting for you on your bed.
You'll be within walking distance to the Bedford L & the Marcy JMZ subway stops, from which the entire city will be easily accessible. For subway & bus directions anywhere in the city, I recommend the website & app HopStop.
I always provide a clean room, with fresh sheets and towels for every guest. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any question or if there's anything I can help you with.
Everything worked out perfectly. The location was centralized in the heart of Brooklyn. The place was tidy and towels were provided. Dom left info about places in the area, wifi info, etc. All in all, no complaints!
L'appartement est dans un quartier très sympa et très animé. Il y avait d'ailleurs un festival lorsque nous y étions.
La chambre est très petite et pas aérée c'est assez dommage mais ça reste correct.
Par contre il y a un grand travail sur l'hygiène à faire.
Des cheveux dans les draps.
Un dessus de lit avec des tâches plus que suspecte. Nous avons dormis sur des serviettes tellement ce n'était pas propre.
La salle de bain n'en parlons pas... une horreur pas propre du tout.
Je suis vraiment déçu.
Car emplacement sympa.
Hôte sympa qui nous a rendu service en nous laissant les clés le dernier jour pour que l'on puisse laisser nos bagages.
Mais l'hygiène est très important pour moi.
Je conseil à Dom de faire plus attention à l'avenir.
We enjoyed our stay very much at Dom's. The location is superb. Bedford St. is where most things are happening in Williamsburg and it is half a block away. All is convenient. The only downside to the apartment is that one has to be very quiet as the walls are thin. However we spent most of our time out and about and we did get used to this after awhile. There is a nice kitchen and the bathroom is adequate.
The subway lines, both the J and the L trains are close and all shops for food are convenient. We loved Williamsburg, its close proximity to tourist sites and Manhattan as well as how quaint and fun it is.
Dom was a fantastic host! He was very responsive to any questions and kept a very neat home. The apartment is great for someone exploring the city and Williamsburg is a beautiful spot as well. All in all, great place to stay.
Clean room & apartment,
Flexible with the arrival time,
Good WiFi connection,
Good value for the area,
Not too far from the subway,
Responsive to emails,
Plenty of bars and restaurants around,
Secure locks on the rooms.
Only down side was noise from the neighbours until 2 am and room, I was in, had no windows.
Overall, a fine place at a reasonable price.
Stayed at Dom's in April. It was a great spot for one night, and walking distance to many amazing restaurants and bars. Would definitely stay again!
It was exactly as promised. I'd challenge you to find more affordable, safer and more accessible accommodations in and around New York City. No worries here.
We had a few small problems with the room. First of all, it wasn't very clean, there were two pairs of shoes under the bed from previous visitors swimming in dust and the bathroom could use a good clean as well. Second, the rooms were very noisy. We were prepared for some noise but we weren't prepared for the very loud couple in the room next to us. Of course this isn't really Dom's fault although we couldn't help but notice that Dom was the only one sleeping in that room during our stay.
The other problems we had were fixed by Dom adequately. The neighbourhood is great, Brooklyn is a fantastic place with great bars and restaurants around the corner.
L appartement est très bien situé (plein de boutiques, restos, bars sympas à deux pas). Chambre correcte pour le prix. Dommage qu il n y ait pas de fenêtre !
Good stay, very confortable! Thank you Dom.
