Need a place to crash short-term in New York City?
We'd be happy to receive you on board The Mothership, our little artists' collective consisting of three permanent members (30+ females) and a cat. You'll get your own tiny room in our live/work space in a converted industrial building located in the happening Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn, NYC.
The room is equipped with a single bed, desk/chair, a dresser and clothing racks/shelves. With two bathrooms in the house, you will share yours with only one person. Wireless internet access, AC, and washer/drier. Non-smoking apartment.
Two caveats: The room is a converted ‘walk-in closet (9’ by 8’ with 11 foot ceilings), and its non-opening window overlooks the living room. Some shelves inside the room hold storage items. In other words, you will only have a minimum amount of private space, but you are, of course, welcome to use the communal areas of the loft, too.
The room (commonly referred to as the ‘guest closet’) only has a single, collapsible bed, and so is best suited for one person. However, we can also accommodate a couple on a double mattress on the floor. We will provide bed sheets and towels.
One more thing for you to know: We’re happy to get you coffee in the morning, but otherwise, you should not count on us for breakfast.
Location: 4 blocks from Greenpoint Avenue subway station on G train, 15-min walk from Vernon Blvd on 7-train (1 stop to Grand Central Station).
Shopping, restaurants and bars are only two blocks away.
And the room comes with a bike, too!
Nuestra estancia en el Mothership no puedo ser mejor! Desde el primer momento, incluso antes de hacer la reserva, Sol siempre fue muy amable y atenta, respondiendo a nuestros emails con rapidez. Previo a nuestra llegada nos envío toda la iformación sobre el Loft, con un mapa e indicaciones sobre como llegar. El primer día incluso nos envío varios mensajes ya que el vuelo se restrasó y estaba preocupada, no hay mejor manera de sentirse seguro en una gran ciudad que teniendo cerca a una persona como Sol :)
El Loft es precioso y muy comfortable, nos sentimos como en casa desde el primer día. Todo está muy limpio y ordenado. Te sientes cómodo y libre para usar los espacios comunes y al mismo tiempo puedes disfrutar de tu intimidad sin molestias.
Además Sol fue muy atenta con nosotros, nos invitó a una fiesta privada con sus amigos el día de Fin de año y nos pasó información de otras fiestas cercanas por si nos apatecía salir. Uno de los días, proyectaron en el salón el documental de una amiga suya y nos invitaron a verlo y hacer un pequeño picnic en el salón, fue genial! También nos imprimió en casa las entradas para el Rockefeller Center y nuestras tarjetas de embarque para el viaje de vuelta.
Y en nuestro caso particular, que Sol hable español fue de gran ayuda, ¿que más se puede pedir? ^_^
Bien situado, a 30 min. de Manhatthan en metro. Muy acogedor, decoración moderna, calentito (algo super importante cuando la estancia es en invierno y en nuestro caso durante el temporal Hércules), buen ambiente con los compañeros de apartamento, intimidad y una persona cercana siempre dispuesta a ayudarte en lo que necesites.
Sin duda, si volvieses a visitar Nueva York, me encantaría volver al Mothership en Greenpoint <3
Era la primera vez que usaba Airbnb y la experiencia no ha podido ser mejor. 100% recomendable!
my stay in NY was incredible, i fell in love with that city,it was so beautiful and the lodging with Sol, couldn´t be better, she is very attentive, her apartment is so beautiful, and she give me all freedom to leave and return all the time, she invite me to dinner the 24th, it was a great experience beacuse I talked to some friends of her that were from different countries but all live in ny and the food was delicious.
she also lent me a bike, and i can ride it in central park and many places!!
the place is near to a subway station so it was very helpfull to move in manhattan
it was a beautiful experience and I wish to see Sol very soon again!!!
What a delightful experience!
I come to NY when I am working so I do not need a 'tour guide'.
I was a little apprehensive about going to Soll's because she shares her apartment with two other women and I do not like to feel like an intruder. I never did.
Sol is a just lovely. She was gracious and relaxed.
The three women in the apartment are highly educated and have multi-faceted lives.
It is an 'artists loft' and they do have a fabulous rooftop right off
the living room.
The energy in the apartment is special.

Sol is a perfect hostess! I really enjoyed my stay at the "mothership"!
I am sure I will come back, Sol thank you so much!
I had a great stay in Sol's apartment. As everyone else has already said, Sol is a very nice person who immediately made me feel welcomed and comfortable. I only saw her roommate Teddy once, briefly, but I could tell she is a very kind person as well. They were very attentive to my needs but also gave me all the privacy I could want. The apartment is located in a safe neighbourhood, and is only about a 5-minute walk from the Greenpoint Ave. subway station, so getting into Manhattan is quick and easy. I highly recommend Sol's place for anyone looking for budget-friendly accommodations in NYC.
I really enjoyed staying in the mothership with the Sol and the other two and not to forget the cat of course!
Like all have previously written, Sol incredibly friendly, helpful and a fantastic interesting woman!
If you need help, advice and tips she gives them with joy.
The collective is well located and it is about 5 mins walk to the subway and it is in a safe area.
The room is perfect for one person but two people would also work.
You can move in the entire apartment and you feel not in the way at all!
I can DEFINITELY recommend renting this room on your visit to
I will certainly try to rent the room at Sol / the mothership on my next trip to New York!
I was looking for a place where the rent is low and relatively close to the city since i just needed it for sleeping. This place is much better than what I expected, because of the host, Sol. She is a fantastic artist/person, who let me use towls, a personal refrigerator, bicycle, and everything what I need for spending a week there. Glad to meet her!
Awesome is all I can say. Sol is welcoming and friendly and makes you feel right at home as soon as you arrive. The loft is tidy and clean, with access to a well equipped kitchen and the rooftop. I was able to come and go as I needed. Location was also great, a short walk to the Green point Ave metro, or a 10-15min walk across the bridge to the 7 train which takes you directly into Manhattan. Otherwise the B62 bus is located right at the end of the street if you wanted to take it across the bridge or to Queens plaza. Would definitely recommend this stay for anyone visiting NYC.
I had a wonderful time on the mothership. Sol and the other girls make me always feel good. The apartment and the roof deck is beautiful and greenpoint is a lovely neighborhood. I wish to return very soon.
Thanks for everything!
My one-week stay at Sol's place was fantastic. The loft has a great vibe and an open and relaxed atmosphere to it. Sol was a lovely host, very friendly and caring. She even invited me to an event at her gallery and also offered me a bike to get around the city. The loft is located 10 minutes from the subway station. It was a convenient ride into Manhattan. I could also walk to the centre of hip Williamsburg. I can definitely recommend Sol's place!
