Up for grabs is a couch in a home office in a 2-bedroom apartment in Jersey City, across the river from New York City. 15 minute walk to the subway, which is then a 10 minute, $3 ride into the City. Adjacent to the subway stop are 24-hour fast food restaurants (Subway, McDonald's, White Castle). The neighborhood is safe at all hours; I'm a Caucasian male who usually dresses well and I've never had problems here.
About me: I am a recent Harvard graduate and young professional who is happy to show you around the City. However, this does not mean I will be your sidekick during your entire stay; I do have an agenda of my own though I do come home nightly. I have lightning-fast wi-fi, HD cable, and a landline phone that I will of course make available to you. My apartment is spacious (>1000 sq ft) and well-kept; I ask that you do your share to keep it this way.
About you: clean, drug-free and respectful of reasonable hours-- I'm a cool, low maintenance guy. Security deposit due upon booking.
Good couch and a good location. Great value for the price.
Andrew is a good host. I had a good time during my stay at his home. I usually went home late, but found nothing unsafe on my way from the PATH to his home ( sometimes the bus did not work after midnight :/). I recommend Bergen Ave if you want to walk at night, there are a lot of food stores still opening at night. The heat was quite hot a bit, but it was fine for me.
Well I was expecting a (website hidden) experience, but the vibe was totally more like a military dorm. Like you can see on his other guests reviews, some of them got upset because he asked to charge them extra money for staying just a couple of hours more until the time of their flight, no travellers-friendly-vibe, only money. He doesn't have the airbnb vibe. He texted me (while I was getting ready to leave, and he was sitting on the living room next to the couch I was staying, but I guess he doesn't like to "talk" like normal people do) anyways, it was about violating a "20hour stay house rule" but I guess he doesn't really know how to count the hours since I use to stay less than 12 hours on his apartment (I use to come late at night, 1-3AM and leave the apartment around 1-3PM, what is totally normal when you're traveling and (website hidden), but he didn't understand that as he expect the guests to follow HIS life routine, so it was totally like staying in a military camp with "limited" people. Some occasional days I stayed longer but never longer than 20 hours. He left me a review saying: "He would mysteriously wait until I'd gone to sleep to take the elevator to do who-knows-what." and I thought it was kinda super creepy that your host watch your steps even when you leave the apartment, wondering what do you do when you leave his place. First, I didn't at all "wait until he'd gone to sleep" HOW would I know if he's sleeping or awake when he's inside his room???? Second: I met people on the building who even helped me with the laundry card and other stuff, I have a social life, what I do outside his apartment is MY business, reading the review he left to me was creepy creepy creepy, I didn't leave him any review before because I would leave a review if I would recommend the place, not to point out the things that I personally didn't like, I just like to respect everyone's lifestyle, I thought: if I don't agree with anything that doesn't bother my life it's not my business, but if he wants to play this silly review game I just felt like responding to it. Bad vibes, but at least I learned that airbnb is not the best option when you want to save money, if you're on a budget go (website hidden) or book a hostel instead and avoid creepy and not-travellers-friendly hosts and bad vibes...
