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 is a chance that you see a mouse or roach. Thanks for reading.

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.
This is my second time staying in this property and I found it to be as comfortable and convenient as I did the first time. The room is spacious, the bed is very comfortable, the bathroom was large and clean and the location is convenient to the 2 and 5 trains which will get you to Manhattan quickly. Natasha and Firoz were friendly and helpful. The only negative was the wifi which was is slow and flaky from this part of the house (it was much better from a different part of the house on my previous stay). I recommend and think you will enjoy your stay here.
We did enjoyed. Natasha's brother was very friendly and gave us helpful tips on things to do in the neighbourhood. The room was cozy and comfortable. The place is just 5-7 minutes from the subway station and it's really quick and easy to get into Manhattan. We'd love to come back.
Wir haben uns hier sehr wohlgefühlt! Unser erster Aufenthalt mit AirBNB und gewiß nicht unser letzter. Unser Gastgeber Firas, Natashas Bruder, war sehr freundlich, unendlich hilfsbereit und dabei sehr zurückhaltend (er bewohnt das Souterrain). Wir konnten mit den Bewohnern der zwei anderen Räume zusammen Küche, Aufenthaltsraum und Bad benutzen, bekamen Handtücher und in der voll eingerichteten Küche sogar Grundnahrungsmittel, Gewürze et.c. zur Verfügung gestellt, so dass wir auch richtig kochen konnten. Im Zimmer ist mit dem Extrabett natürlich nicht mehr so viel Platz, und die Fotos lassen es größer wirken, aber wir hatten genügend Platz für uns und unseren 16-jährigen Sohn. Die Betten waren bequem, um wie wir mehr als eine Woche darin zu schlafen, die Gegend ist ruhig (unser Zimmer ging nach hinten raus), gut angebunden, und wir hatten keine Angst, nachts mit der U-Bahn nach Hause zu kommen. Auch spätabends kann man noch kleine Geschäfte geöffnet finden, in denen man alles Notwendige findet. Wir würden hier jederzeit wieder buchen!
Overall, we had a nice stay. The pictures do make the place seem a bit nicer than it is, but if you’re looking for somewhere to simply spend a couple nights it’s more than sufficient (and way cheaper than a hotel!). It’s also relatively close to the subway, so that was a plus. Majeed was an amazing host – he was incredibly amicable, genuine, and always made sure we had everything we needed. Thanks for the great stay!
Great time, was awesome to have some space and privacy. I stayed for 10 nights. Took about 25m to get into Manhattan via the 2 or 5 trains.
Room is very large. Well heated. Also a living room and kitchen I had access to. Nice neighborhood with lots of restaurants. Great stay.
It's true that the appartment could do with some refurbishing and tidying but for the money this is a very good address for the budget traveller. The triplet room is spacious enough and the porch a nice place to hang out. Natasha and her brother very friendly, helpful and hardworking people! Every morning they provided us with a breakfast of a bagel and a nice cup of coffee (although this was not in the description on the website so that was a big plus). The neighborhood we found quiet, relaxed and safe. Manhattan is easy accessible (around 30 minuten to Time Square). I would recommand this appartment to any budget traveller (like us).
