THE OPEN AND CURTAINED ROOM
The Living Room in this converted flat is open, 11ft x 13ft, 143 sq ft (13 sq m, 13 qm) and has a new twin (single) daybed with an extra separate single bed that's stored below. Both beds have extremely comfortable new Sealy Posturepedic mattresses.
This medium sized space was originally part of an 11 x 24, 264 sq ft large living room space that is now curtained-off from the back half of the apartment. The large living room is also now split into two and separated by almost-ceiling-high armoires, creating two seperate spaces. This first space has a "shotgun" type feeling, since there's a need to walk through it to get to the second space.
The other common/shared areas inlude a small kitchen and bathroom.

Latasha is a great host! She has alot of knowledge of the city and is willing to share her tips, not to mention she will take the time out to show you around the neighbourhood.
Our flight was delayed so we arrived at midnight but Latasha was still up waiting so check in ran smoothly.
The apartment is in a good location, surrounded by shops and only a 5min walk from the subway.
Latasha's place was filled with all of the necessities and she made us feel at home. We spent 3 nights in the open room which is a converted lounge. And spent 1 night in the private bedroom which is very big. Both rooms have super comfy beds so we enjoyed a goods nights sleep and a great stay.
Latasha is a great host! She's so nice and helpful.
The house was good, its a good place to stay. The house was clean, comfy and you can have breakfast there.
The place is really close to the metro station (what its so good) and there is a police station close, so that makes a safety place, at least for me lol.
If I go to NY again, probably I'll repeat Latasha's house!
Latasha was a nice and polite hostess.
The nights were fine. We were traveling a lot and were only there to sleep in the apartment.
Thank you. We will come back. :-)
We stayed at the house for one night.
Everything was really nice and Latasha was a great host!
The beds were super super comfortable, Latasha really made it an enjoyable stay, she was very welcoming and knowledgable about the city, had a whole range of recent magazines about things to do in NY. we felt very safe in this location, we (females) walked back to the apartment from the subway at night without any trouble.
The breakfasts were good, and healthier than some hostels. The room we stayed in was not very private (we knew this would be the case when we booked) but latasha and the other guests were great and respected our space.
Had a great stay with Tasha, really close to the 125th subway that will connect you to all the major areas in Manhattan. Really safe area in Harlem just a block away from a police station, also close to many great restaurants including the Red Rooster, and Bad Horse. Would recommend to others. :)
Latasha was a great host. She's very accommodating and provided me highly useful information that made my trip and navigating around NYC easy and worry-free.
Latasha was a great host ! The subway was very close to her house and the neighborhood was nice as well. The beds were clean and it was nice to meet other people who stayed there at the same time as us. We would recommend her place if you are looking for an affordable place to stay in new york ! Although there was no air condition, there was a fan that kept us cool throughout the night.
Latasha very kind, friendly, fun and demanding mistress! The apartment is quiet and comfortable, clean bed, all excellent! Close to the subway, near shops. We came to relax and have fun, so we had enough room with a partition. Funny French neighbors have always helped us and explained what and how! Many thanks to all!
Latasha est une personne très gentille MAIS
nous avons été très surprises par la nature de l'hébergement.Une pièce coupée en 2 par une armoire,Nous occupions la partie correspondant à l'entrée de sorte que toute personne qui arrivait dans l'appartement avait vue sur notre"espace",les occupants de la 2eme partie devaient traverser cet espace,Latasha elle même dormait sur un canapé avec nous.Quelle intimité!!!Par contre pour le petit déjeuner nous pouvions commander ce qui nous convenait.
