About this listing
Why stay in a hotel when you can enjoy your stay the fullest in Brooklyn, yet for much less money!?
IMPORTANT NOTE: PLEASE REMEMBER TURN OFF THE AC IN YOUR ROOM WHEN YOU LEAVE THE HOUSE.
This house is located the trendy hood called Brooklyn Lefferts Garden. This room is part of the house that's based in multi-ethnic, friendly, safe neighborhood. Cafes (check out Gratitude Cafe on Rogers ave. and Midwood st.) and restaurants reflect various backgrounds. A yoga center just opened only two blocks away. I can also take you or show where to go for a delightful hang out spots or bars with Jazz concerts and hilarious comedy shows.

Please note that this not a hotel room with a 24 hours service which is why it's so so so much cheaper, and much more laid back than hotels. Also, the room is in a house that was built in the 1920s so while you can find so many of Brooklyn's characters in it, it's not really shiny. In addition, the pictures are taken by a professional Airbnb photographer. I love those photos but some guests commented that Airbnb photos didn't convey the real look of the room. In any case, pictures are taken for the same room, I assure you. Lastly, please consider picking up after yourselves (towels, bath stuff, bathroom mat, and wash your plates/pots after cooking). At times, guests think that the house is untidy or dirty when it's actually another guest who decided to leave things unwashed... etc. :).In addition, please be advised that when you don't clean after yourself in the kitchen or bathroom, or when you eat in your bedroom that there may be a chance that you see a mouse or roach. Thanks for reading.
Enjoy your city in the great city of New York!!!

Interaction with Guests
As much as guests want. I may or may not be present during the stay but if I am not, someone else should be there.
I love that my neighborhood is diverse, fun, not uptight, open, and I mostly love that I can get anything anytime of the day or night. I love that there are so many cafes and restaurants. I love that there are museums, parks, free concerts almost all summer long.
Public transportation are about 5 minutes away, and buses are only 30 steps away from my house. Parking is free although you have to abide by the two days cleaning for each side of the street from 9-11 in the morning.
To get from airport, take a taxi for $30-$40, or take the bus or subway for less than $10 total per passenger.
Lock the outside doors when you leave and when you come home please. No smoking inside the house. You can surely smoke on the deck downstairs. No pets. Also, please wash your dishes, pans ... etc if you decide to cook at home. And keep your towels and bathroom bags in your room. Don't forget to hang the floor towel after showering. If you decide to shave, please clean the hair on and around the sink and bathtub. Thanks a lot.
Firas was very accomodating even at late and early morning hours! That was really appreciated. My bus got in very late and he was up waiting for me to get in. He also checked me out early in the morning when I left before the normal time. I wasn't crazy about staying alone and with others in a close knit space, sharing a bathroom, so I added my boyfriend on as my guest which also wasn't a problem. The neighborhood was cool, typical Brooklyn vibes and lots of food options. (I recommend JJs Jamaican spot up Fulton). Not super gentrified which I appreciated. Very close to 2 and 5 trains! It was convenient for me crashing for a week of class and I appreciate the hospitality. A bit noisy but it's NYC, so it's expected. I live in the suburbs where the only noise i get is usually insects at night, so I'm biased. Thanks Natasha and Firas for being accommodating.
This home is cool for simply having a place to crash. It's not far from a train but isn't around much. Commute to Manhattan isn't bad.
I was made to feel extremely welcome by a generous, helpful and respectful host. The room was clean, spacious (comfortably sleeps 3 in a double and single bed). Location is safe and well-placed for travel to and from Manhattan and also around Brooklyn. Great value for money and a great experience all round. Thanks for everything, Natasha, and hope to stay with you again in future.
Very pleasant, my stay with Natasha and his brother was perfect. Very comfortable and they are very respectful. They really make you feel at home, and the train is really close.
Definitely would come back again and stay with them.
When I got there Natasha's brother welcomed me and showed me in and around the house. He was really helpful ;) The room was not as new as in the pictures but the whole place was tidy and clean. I often came back late but never felt dangerous.
We stayed in the end of Oct'14
The bedroom is overall fine, good value for money. Everything in the bathroom functions well, no problem to take a shower even though it's seen it's better days. Towels are provided. The apartment is located in an old house so squeaks from the 1st floor at night are quite common. Windows are thin and wooden so sirens might wake you up. Earplugs are recommended for those with dog-sleep.
The neighbourhood is safe, we had no discomfort returning home at 1-2 o'clock at night. Underground station Sterling Street (2 Red and 5 Green) is literally 8 minutes relaxed walk.
Natasha and her brother were very welcoming and friendly. On the very first evening they showed us around, explained how to get to the underground, grocery store etc. Offered free breakfast on the following day and were very nice through our stay.
