- *** 5 Minutes from LaGuardia Airport! ***

- Transportation: Subway 15-20 mins to Midtown Manhattan. Six minute walk to the largest subway stop in Queens with five subway train lines (E, F, 7, M, R) and six bus lines (Q32, Q33, Q47, Q49 and Q53). As well as the Q66 on Northern Blvd., two blocks away. The Q33 & Q47 buses go to LaGuardia Airport. The Q53 bus goes to Rockaway Beach, Queens. The Q32 runs all the way from Jackson Heights to Midtown Manhattan, a nice option if you aren't in a rush and want to see NYC from the ground level (instead of the underground) and maybe hop off in the interesting neighborhoods along the way. The Long Island Rail Road Woodside station is nearby on 61st Street and Roosevelt Avenue, which is two stops on the #7 train. Incidentally, the 7 train is one of the few remaining elevated lines in NYC - you're sure to enjoy the birds eye view of the borough!

- No smoking in the apartment.

- No street shoes in the apartment.

- I provide a light continental breakfast. Oatmeal, Toast, Coffee, and Tea.

  • We had a very good stay in Memo's home. We didn't spend lots of time in the apartment but for the time we were in it was comfortable. Queens borough is safe and the apartment is in a indian/paki/mexican area. There are only 8 minutes walk to reach the nearest subway station. I recommend this host

  • Staying at Memo's place was just great. Perfect location, great privacy and, besides, Memo was very helpful with the delay of our luggages - had no problem to find out what was the problem and then picked them up. I totally recommend Memo. It was fun and enjoyable, definitely would choose Memo again! :)

    April 2014
  • It's a nice place with a good location to Time Square with Great price. The room is clean. You can also play board game and video game in this room. Memo is a great guy to give us many suggestions of restaurants near us. But it's a little bit cold during winter. Still good to visit.

  • We were happy, we could return to Memo's place every evening after walking and discovering the big city, tired and looking for quietness. The room was under construction and maybe a little tiny for us, 5 adults. But I would definitely recommend his place to anyone traveling to NYC, we felt free and welcome.
    Thanks! And about your offer,you can expect some of us again, tot talk some more about art for example.. ; )

  • Memo's house was spacious and clean. We spent 20 days there and we enjoyed so much. Memo and his aunt were so nice and helpful, at the end of our staying there they were more than host but friends! Nice and safe neighborhood, 2 blocks away from 2 big grocery market. Thanks! Recommended!

    Thank you! We have to hang out. :o)

  • MEMO IS A GREAT! HE'S A PEACEFUL AND NICE PERSON, HIS APARTAMENT FOR US, A GROUP OF SIX PERSONS, IT WAS BEEN A GOOD CHOISE!
    THE APARTAMENT IS CENTRALLY LOCATED AND CLOSE TO ONE OF THE MAIN SUBWAYS, FIVE LINES SUBWAY STATION AND I THINK THIS IS IMPORTANT IF YOU WANT TO MOVE AROUND THE CITY.. HERE THE PUBLIC TRANSPORT IS PERFECT FOR COMMUTING. THE APARTAMENT LOCATION IS QUIET AND THE NEIGHBORHOOD IS MULTICULTURAL WITH GOOD LATINS RESTAURANTS.
    THE HOUSE IS PRETTY COZY AND COMFORTABLE. IF YOU WANT TO STAY IN AN AFFORDABLE, CONVENIENT LOCATION THEN LOOK NO FURTHER THAN MEMO'S HOUSE.
    WE HAD A GREAT TIME DURING OUR STAY IN NYC AND WE FELT VERY AT EASE WITH MEMO AND HIS APARTAMENT. THANX AGAIN FOR YOUR HOSPITALITY! RECOMMENDED!!!

  • The room we rented was big. The bed was comfortabele and there was plenty of storage room. The kitchen has everything you need and so does the bathroom.
    The neigbourhood is safe and calm. Everything you need is within walking distance: grocery store, metro station, restaurants...
    Memo is a very nice person with a good sense of humor. He is helpful when needed, but never pushy.
    Thank you for everything, Memo!

  • Memo's a very great host who offered a lot of useful information on traveling and living in the New York city. He's really a passionate person who likes to share things. We lived in his place for 7 days and highly recommend living there.

    There are three things that must be highlighted:
    1.Ideal location for subway: There are E,F,M,R plus 7 so it's takes little time to look for transfer, and subway is only 5-7 minutes walk from home.

    2.Easy access to supermarket: There are several supermarkets around and some are 24/7 so even if we went home late we could still buy stuffs for tomorrow.

    3.Cozy home with great facilities: During our stay we prepared every breakfast in the kitchen. Memo's got everything needed to cook. Besides there's laundry room at the basement, so useful and easy. We also slept very well every day.

    Thanks to Memo a lot, because he made our trip to NYC more interesting and made us realize how living and working in the nyc are like. Definitely go to his place if possible next time.
