The space

We live in a 2 floors apartment in LIC/Astoria, Queens, steps away from the train station. Our apartment is very spacious. Your room is private (it has a living room feeling to it but only YOU will be using it! It doesn't have a real door yet, but we have set up curtains for your privacy (please see photos). We just installed a new TV with tons of channels (including HBO +ShowTime!). Your room is on the ground floor with access to a nice backyard. Lots of sun light! You will share the kitchen and bathroom with us :)

Please be aware that we are located right across the subway station, so expect some train noise during rush hours (8:30-9am and 3:30-5pm). Most people don't mind the noise at all, since it is a very convenient location. Have questions? Please message us!

Your Host



New York, New York, United States · Joined in November 2013

We are an outgoing, young married couple. We are fun, kind, and very used to receiving guests at our large apartment in Astoria/LIC. Cynthia is an anthropologist/voice over artist and Mirlet is a fashion designer. We both work in Manhattan. We also have a wonderful roommate Vivi. She is a student. We are normally home from 9pm to 9am, as we all have crazy busy schedules. Our house has two floors, one floor is where our bedrooms and family room are located, and the ground floor is where the private room is, together with the kitchen and a bathroom that we all share. This is a perfect room if you want to stay in a nice friendly place, close to Manhattan. We live right in front of the train station (36th ave stop by N or Q in Queens), super convenient location, with lots of sun light! The room has access to our backyard, where you can smoke and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea in the sun. We love to meet new people, to chat, to travel, and overall, to host. We love art, dance, music, and all sports! We also speak English, Portuguese, Spanish, Creolle, and a little bit of French. We prefer young travelers but family/couple is okay as well. No kids please - our house has stairs and is not kids friendly. If you need extra space (meaning if you don't want to share the futon with your friend!) we can put a mattress on the floor upon request. Maximum 2 guests. We will do our best to make sure your stay in NYC will be as wonderful as possible! Sheets, towels, teas, and coffee included :)
