About this listing
Why stay in a hotel when you can enjoy your stay the fullest in Brooklyn, yet for less $?
IMPORTANT NOTE: PLEASE REMEMBER TURN OFF THE AC IN YOUR ROOM WHEN YOU LEAVE THE HOUSE.
I live in a house in the trendy hood called Brooklyn Lefferts Garden. This room is part of the house that's based in multi-ethnic, friendly, safe neighborhood. Cafes 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, bathroom or when you eat in the bedroom, there may be chance that you see a mouse or roach. Thanks for reading.
Enjoy your stay in New York City! And check out Gratitude Cafe on Rogers ave. and Midwood st.

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 at home to help you when you need.
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.
I didn't meet Natasha, but her brother Firas took care of everything I needed including towels, installing A/C, changing lightbulbs, etc. He is a very kind person. I stayed here for a month because I was working in Brooklyn, and I enjoyed my stay greatly. One negative is that sometimes the bathroom is messy, but that's because other guests leave their stuff everywhere.
Could not have been more accommodating with my hectic work and move in schedules. I so appreciate their hospitality!
I always received prompt responses to my email from Natasha. I did not meet her, but met her brother Firas, who gave me the tour of the place and provided towels, etc. He was very nice. The other guests staying there were also nice and interesting. We all shared 1 bathroom but amazingly we did not have trouble sharing! The kitchen seemed well-stocked for preparing meals. The room was fine. Sheets, blankets, towel, room was clean. The wifi was great. The neighborhood was fine too with the subway to Manhattan, Prospect Park and Botanical gardens within walking distance. I never felt intimidated or scared walking home late at night from the subway.
The only thing I wished was different is that the bathroom be cleaned daily or every other day from top to bottom. Otherwise I was grateful to stay here.
I never met Natasha (like lots of other guests it seems) but Filas was pretty helpful. Room was fine if a little cold. Shared bathroom which can be a bit annoying. Location is pretty decent. All in all not the worst option if you're happy with the price and willing to sacrifice on luxury.
I really enjoyed my stay. House was cosy and close to the Metro Station. The host was super nice! I would definitely recommend this place to others and stay there again!
The listing was accurate and a great price. Location was close to the subway and easy to get into Manhattan. Check in and out was easy and communication was great.
The hosts were really hospital and easy to communicate with. The room is absolutely as described. The district is rather save. As bonus, you can find really tasty and cheap Chinese food nearby. The underground to Manhattan is 2 minutes walking distance. Privacy is excellent and there is enough space to feel comfortable.
