A private room with a 5 inches double size futon,
(though, this futon might be hard for people whose back is sensitive, but generally no problem for most people.:) )
with a shared bathroom,
has Wi-Fi, it's on the first floor, so no need to drag your heavy suitcase up down stairs.
the street is quite and safe, the building has it's own washer and dryer, (though we still need to pay, but we don't have to walk far to do the laundry),.
3 minutes walk to M train Seneca Stop, 6 minutes walk to L & M train Myrtle-Wyckoff stop.
the L & M both takes you to central Manhattan in about 20-30 minutes ,
(than depends on where you are going to)
on the M train you can totally enjoy the sky ride, seeing Brooklyn views, it cross the beautiful Brooklyn Bridge, takes you directly to the Central Park, MOMA, China Town, Queens, 5 Pointz (the amazing graffiti scene/blocks/gallery) etc.
the L train connects the most subway lines, hop on the L than very easy to switch to all other lines that you possibly wanna go to, also directly take you to Williamsburg, east village, Chelsea area, famous sky park - The High Line. and Bushwick (new area for underground scene/artists/musicians),
this is a super functional neighborhood, has 24 hours bodegas around. 2 minutes walk to Myrtle Ave that has all kinds of store, you can get everything you possibly need, and many restaurants .
I have blanket ,fresh sheets , pillow, ,towel for you, and will try to provide things you need while your staying.:)
and you will have the apt key so you can in and out as you please, 24 hours!
BTW I am in my early 30 , I am a teacher also make some indie music, my music project related to electro-ethnic-noise. (but don't worry- I won't practice at home!)
my husband makes small fun puppet shows, is an artist love to use recycling materials make puppets. we have a 5 years old, but he is shy when he is around strangers, so he won't bother you basically.:)
I stayed at Yuchen's for a period of 10 days and it was a very pleasant experience! Yuchen was always helpful for whatever information I needed, but of course I didn't want to bother her much, just asked if I really needed something. The room was cozy and clean, there were enough blankets to stay warm, however, Yuchen also offered for more. There is a small heater which at first thought wouldn't heat up the room at all, but I was totally wrong! That little heater can turn the room into a sauna! I was thinking of buying one, but I won't need it much for the weather in Brazil. The only thing missing was a mirror in the room, which didn't bother me but might bother the girls. Well, overall I had a great experience and would definitely stay at Yuchen's again!
Nota 10 para a hospedagem. Lugar muito bem localizado e os anfitriões foram excelentes. recepção ótima.
My boyfriend and I stayed at Yuchen's for the weekend, and it was wonderful! Nice cozy room, with a decent size bed and great windows. We were free to use the kitchen whenever we wanted, and the bathroom was just down the hall. The people who lived there were exceptionally friendly and helpful with anything we needed. The only thing I didn't love was how many people seemed to be staying there the same time we were. This meant that the bathroom was occupied a lot of the time, and sometimes the other guests got a little loud at odd times. But that wouldn't stop us from staying at Yuchen's again! It was comfortable, affordable, very close to the subway and delicious restaurants and overall a very enjoyable stay!
Great stay!! Yuchen is a great host...very convenient location, 20 min into Manhattan on the L or M. Would highly recommend!
The futon bed was incredibly comfortable. If you like firm, you'll be in heaven. The apartment is clean, nice, pretty quiet, and feels like a cozy home. I didn't bring much food, and Yuchen made room in the fridge for my things.
The place is close to the subway and easy to find. I really enjoyed my stay. The only caveat I have is that only one window in the room had a curtain. You might want to change clothes in the bathroom. Other than that, I really enjoyed my stay and would heartily recommend Yuchen.
Staying here was brilliant. Yuchen is lovely and the budget room was all we needed. She gave us a towel each, keys and some ideas about the area which really helped. The location was in easy access of all areas of NYC (10-15mins) and the area was quiet and safe. Would recommend getting a 7 day metro pass for $30 as you will save ALOT. There is supermarket close to the metro which is reasonable prices. If you eat out, we found the street stalls to be cheap and gave decent food for $5. Do free walking tours around the city , there are so many to choose from. Have fun staying here. Its hassle free and a great place. Oh and its flat 1, if you get confused which one to ring when you get the the apartments.
5 jours sympa à New York où nous n'avons passé que peu de temps dans la chambre.
La cuisine était cool. La chambre est situé proche d'une station de métro mais le lit est vraiment inconfortable !!!
On a du placé des matelas auto-gonflant par dessus !!!
Yuchen, Adam and TJ were great hosts and we had a lovely time. I would definitely recommend the room to anyone.
Yuchen was helpful, friendly and easy to contact. The room was clean and area close to trains so easy to get into the city. I would recommend her to anyone looking to see nyc and looking for an alternative to a hotel.
Great deal for a short stay in Queens. We spent only one night, but were absolutely satisfied and very grateful for all the support from Yuchen!
