My dad and I are always at your service
Getting around is no problem at all. We have threw train lines and four bus lines around the house. You have access to the A, C, and J trains. You also have access to the B46, B47, B52, and B38 busses.
Olabimpe was friendly and communicated quickly. As some other reviewers have noted, the room is in the basement, so there is no natural light, and the picture shows the whole extent of the room. It is a small room, and the mattress is the noisiest thing I've ever slept on. You do have to walk a bit to the metro stations, but I didn't mind it, and it was close enough to Manhattan for my purposes
I booked this place last minute and Olabimpe replied immediately. There was no one to let me in at the time we'd arranged so I had to wait for an hour and a half which wasn't ideal. Pretty well located for Manhattan and JFK (go to the jerk chicken place across the road). The room is ok, in the basement flat with one other bedroom next door. Too expensive for what it was though in my opinion, even for New York.
Ola was sweet, and accommodating, I got to her place really, really late, but she waited up for me and was kind. I only saw her the day of my arrival though so yeah she was cool!
The room I got was not exactly like in the picture, I could feel the springs on the bed, so it wasn't really comfortable.
The neighborhood was ok, just a few dodgy characters here and there but, streets aren't busy at night.
This is my personal opinion. I spent two nights in this house, and I have nothing negative to say; it was like at home. Peaceful, smiling, and helpful This is my personal opinion. I spent two nights in this house, and I have nothing negative to say; it was like at home. Mrs. Olabimpe Ojo is truly a genuinely good person. So, I met peaceful, smiling, and helpful people in the house. Everything is close in this area. Some friends of mine are planning to stay there for vacation.
The decision to stay at Olabimpes place was last minute (the evening before) she accepted immediately and also wrote back to my questions in a minute! I just stayed for one night, but she was very friendly and helpful. The place is very warm, and the bed was comforty.
