We live in a characteristic split-level row house, which gives you privacy, since your bedroom is upstairs, located on a separate floor from ours. The house is on the corner of lovely Van Vorst Park, and the bedroom windows face a quiet courtyard. The neighborhood boasts many shops, restaurants and cafes. My husband and I have a friendly cat, which shouldn’t be an issue unless you have very severe allergies. He spends most of his days outdoors & isn't permitted in the guest room.

Let me know you have any further questions – I’d love to tell you more about the place.

The guests have access to their own private bedroom. The bedroom has a bathroom en-suite, which is available for the guests' use only. The hosts to not share the bathroom with you. The guests also have access to the shared living room and kitchen areas.

I've lived in our neighborhood for over 16 years, and have seen it change dramatically. It is a very family friendly area, with lots of young couples, kids and plenty of local entertainment. You'll find a variety of restaurants and coffee shops, as well as easily accessible super markets, and even a movie theater, walking distance away. Spring, summer and fall time are particularly great, as you can experience weekly farmers markets, street performances and many other attractions hosted in the local parks and squares.

The New Jersey PATH train is located less than 4 short blocks away, which is about a 4 minute walk. This is an underground train, which gets you to Manhattan in as little as 2 stops.

  • We had a delightful stay at Yana's home in Jersey City. Her home was very clean, comfortable and inviting. The bedroom was spacious and light, the bed very comfortable and the ensuite bathroom very convenient. We bonded with her cat, Moses, immediately and he greeted us each day when we got home. It felt like our own home in no time. The neighborhood had many good restaurants nearby (especially liked Skinner's Loft) and was very peaceful after spending a day in the City. We had easy access to Manhattan on the PATH train and even took the ferry once from Liberty Park. You can walk to Liberty Park in about 30 minutes and the views of the city skyline, Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island are breathtaking. We would definitely recommend Yana's home to our friends and will stay there again when we come to New York. We only wish that we had the opportunity to meet Yana and Andy, as they were on vacation themselves while we were at their home.

  • Jana and Andy 's apartment was well situated and only a couple of mins walk to the path subway link in Jersey City which takes you into Manhatten. The private room and bathroom were spacious and very comfortable. Jana and Andy were lovely hosts. I did not see much of them because of my busy schedule but they were extremely helpful and friendly. They took the time to make sure they were there to greet me when I arrived at 12.30am in the morning. I would recommend their listing and definitely stay again if I return to New York. Their cat Moses was adorable.

  • Everything was just great. We had our own room and our own bathroom.
    The house was easy to find and it is close to the waterfront where you get an awesome view over downtown manhattan.

    We can really recommend this place.

  • Chambre très propre correspondant à la description en ligne. Quartier très sympa et calme qui repose du bruit permanent de Manhattan ! Yana est très bien organisée et commence sa journée très tôt !
    Adresse que je recommande sans hésitation, bonne continuation à toute la famille !

  • Yana was great host. The room was clean and very private. Great location, minutes away from downtown with the path. Yana was very helpful and friendly. She made us feel very welcomed. She recommended very nice places to eat (including that great bagel shop around the corner). I would recommend Yana's place to everyone.

  • We were slightly worried out our hosts property being located outside of Manhatten but it really wasn't a problem. In fact, it was nice to be staying in a quiet neighbourhood and the journey into Manhatten was only a short ride on the PATH. The room was spacious and with a very nice bathroom and the bed was very, very comfortable! Yana was welcoming and unobtrusive, but always there if we needed her. There are plenty of bars and restaurants close by and it is just a short walk to the river front with spectacular views over Manhatten. Yana has a beautiful, welcoming home which we highly recommend.

  • I believe almost everything has been said about Yana's place but I want to point out 2 elements : LOCATION and PRIVACY!
    I know Jersey City quite well as I tend to stay there each time I visit NYC and in that view, Yana's place is a fantastic location. 5 mins walk, 2 stops and you are in Manhattan by PATH. Or a little 10 mins walk and you reach the Waterfront and you can take again the PATH or the ferry.
    Then there is the privacy aspect. When you enter the house, you almost walk in right away in your own space as Yana & her family have their own floor. You just "share" the kitchen.
    The room is great, with it's TV, wifi, and your ensuite bathroom.
    I can recommend very much this place ... just book early because Yana's place is very popular! :-)

  • It was a great pleasure to be hosted by Yana and Andy. The room is as described, and the location of the apartment is very convenient: there is a PATH station and a light rail station nearby. Also, it's just a few minutes' walk to the waterfront with beautiful views of Manhattan. And the cats are so sweet :)

  • It's a great room. Clean, quiet and two lovely cats :)
    Just 10 mins walk to the river to get a great view of Manhattan.
    3 blocks to Path subway, very convenient.
    Yana is a great host. I like the room.

About
My husband and I are avid travelers and have always preferred to stay with locals or by renting an apartment, rather than at a hotel. Hosting just seemed like a very natural continuation for us. Through this, we have met so many lovely people, and have taken great pleasure in welcoming them to the city and in being their local guides.
