I've never met Pal but Dan is a nice host:-) the room is really reasonable and has a nice view of GW bridge! You can see the bridge through the window! It is really nice!!!!:-) the area is not dangerous. I enjoyed the night of NY so many times and came to home after midnight but it was okay. But don't take train 1. The stop is far and the area is not good..
The room was extremely small - it was hard to fit our suitcases because it was almost fully filled with beds. In addition, it had so thin walls that I was afraid to even lean on them. But it had a great view from the window especially at night. A/C and Wi-Fi was working fine. The water was good and always hot but in my opinion the bathroom should be cleaned more often. Easy access to the Downtown via A line leaving from the 181 St Station. The host (Dan) was very kind and helpful. In addition, safe area and kind doormen.
In general the place is worth considering if you just need a place to spend a night and have a shower because of it's convenient Subway connection and low price. However, bear in mind that the conditions are rather harsh.
The room (Whashington Heights) was descibde as a small room in a 2 bed apartment with thin walls, in real it was a one bed apartment seperate in 4 minimal bedrooms with plywood panels. So you could hear everyone snoring, not very relaxing. Our room was the only one with a window apart from the bath. The room was really dirty, so the bath room (moldy shower curtain, which was replaced after a week) and when the weather got colder the wind was coming from the outside through the wall and window. We had to spend a couple of nights at another place to our own costs. They tried to fix it, but I cant recommend that place during cold weather.
And to keep a place that small clean, should not be such a problem.
Never met Pal in person, just talked with him on the phone ones to report the broken wall/window, he said, hes not in charge of this apartment, so we contact Dan (who is living in one of the small rooms himself) again, and he called someone to fix it.
Dan is nice, gave us his charger a coulple of times.
Nice doormen, safe area.
Would not stay there again, we didnt feel compfy at all.
Dan is an amicable person who gave use good information about what to see in the different areas of New york City. He made us feel welcome and provided us with essentials such as a hairdryer and iron.
The price for the room - considering the location was brilliant. The view from the bedroom is what you would expect to see if you were staying in an expensive rooftop apartment.
The space itself is very small and for two travellers and was quite difficult to manage. On viewing the image on the advert we were expecting a double bed but got two single beds at either end of the room. Due to the compact space we could not move them together. A couple sleeping in a single bed is not the ideal situation.
Overall, we had a good stay at Dan. We never met Pal.
The flat is in a great location and a perfect place if you are looking for an affordable place to sleep in NYC. Dan is a very nice person!
Dan, thank you very much for the great stay. We had a great time and hope to see you again. Many greetings from Prague.
Dan is very nice. The house is small and old. For one person, it is good enough. The view is great.
