The neighborhood

This area is very safe to walk around at any hours of the day and night. It is also safe to park on the streets over night. (also it's free!)

If you are visiting New York, you have come to the best location! You are 10 -15 mins from Manhattan. All you have to do is to walk 3 minutes to the "Grove street" station and take the PATH train into Manhattan. It costs only $2.5. You are 2 stops from the heart of New York and the ride is roughly 6-7 mins.

If you are traveling on business and transiting at EWR, you have also come to the best location! You are only 20 minutes by cab to the airport! Alternatively, you can take the PATH then transfer to AirTrain.

This is a wonderful, just re-finished home with beautiful seperation between the floors and apartments. The wood stairwell and hall ways are beautiful and overall the entire house has a pleasant and relaxed feeling and aura to it. Beautiful water/oil paintings all around... and just nice. I like the feel of the place; Location wise it is great to be off of Grove Street and 2 stops in to WTC.

Host was attentive. Apartment is clean but has a strong smell of spices, cooking spices. The bed is extremely uncomfortable did not get any sleep. Bedroom window faces many other widows less then 5 feet away. Feels like a college dorm.

We had a great experience at Thomas and Rain's place. It was good value for money. The room was clean, wi-fi was great, functional kitchen and the place was private. The best part was it was just a 4 minute walk to PATH (metro).

The table in the room and the living room was dirty. A lot of dust on the floor lamps because of what my child is sneezing constantly. Dust does not wipe away for a few months throughout the apartment. In the bathroom mold and dirt on everywhere. The shower curtain was scared to touch. In the kitchen, all the dishes are very dirty. Such dirt I have not seen. The landlord did not care about the quality of accommodation.

Other than being close to the PATH and having hot water and a fridge, there was no real upside to staying here. The building is an old apartment building that has a really strange floor plan, no natural light and the place smells. See that photo? The room looks nothing like that. The place is a dive that's being run as a flop house with multiple guests at the same time. I can't recommend this place.

Easy quick stay - Thomas is extremely aware and thoughtful. He has amazing customer service skills. - Bed was comfortable. Kitchen and shower were always available. - 5 minute walk from the Grove Path which is about 10 minutes to NYC. It stops on every main street in mid Manhattan.. 9th, 14th, 33rd. Even though its in Jersey, it's fairly easy to commute. - icing on the cakes: mirrors in room including a makeup mirror, lots of outlets for charging
