The Space

*No hidden cleaning fee or deposit required!*
*No animals were ever in the building so if you have pet allergies you will be fine!*

This listing is for a room and sleeps one person only. No couples please.

GamePad 3000 is for exclusively for travelers with a filled out profile, photos and verifications. The space is in a brand new luxury building that is the most quiet place you will find because there are no adjacent neighbors, sound proof windows and 2 thick doors to the hallway. Many apartments in NYC have very thin walls and you hear traffic and neighbors all the time. Not at GamePad 3000!

Brand new everything, the most comfortable bed you'll ever sleep on and no cockroaches like older apartments.

Interaction with Guests

I am always reachable on my cell phone and by email, and I can give all the advice you need for what to see and do!

The Neighborhood

SAFETY: Brand new luxury building with security cameras / locks / intercom. Everything in the apartment is new. The neighborhood may seem rough around the edges but is safe to walk at all hours. Like being anywhere in NYC, use common sense and be aware of your surroundings.

Getting around

CLOSE TO MANHATTAN: 2.5 blocks to the Morgan ave and Jefferson Ave stop on the L. 11 minutes on the L train to Manhattan, 16 minutes to Union Square 14st. Car service right next door - go down and they will have a car for you in 5 minutes or less!

When you book I will provide you with detailed instructions on how to get here from the airport.

  • Jan's flat is exactly as described, easy to get to from the L train. Bushwick is a pretty cool area, wish I had a bit more time to explore it.

    For anyone who loves video games, Jan's flat is chock full of great consoles and gadgets. Good luck with your game development Jan!

  • The stay was Jan was awesome!
    I didnt actually expect the place to be exactly as in the pictures, but it was!
    The place is clean, enough space and the views from the balcony as well as the rooftop are Incredible.
    I didnt get to use any games or watch any movies, but the concept itself is just great. In case you actually do get bored in Nyc (however that is gonna happen) you can still greatly entertain yourself at the Gamepad.
    Jan is a great guy; everything worked out perfectly, He always helpful.
    Im definately going to stay there again the next time I visit nyc.
    Greetings from Germany!

  • Fist of all, the room looks exactly like how it is on the photo. It is sunny, clean and quite. The bed is comfortable. There is enough room for doing pilates and yoga too, or you can go to loom yoga center which is couple steps away. His apartment is very organized and located in a convenient place, only couple blocks away from underground stops.The manuel he prepared for visitors was extremely useful. Every morning I tried to go to another coffee shop was listed in the manuel, and all of them were great! He is helpful, interesting and a nice person. I would totally recommend it to anyone who is visiting New York.

  • Jan was a helpful and friendly host, very easy-going. The apartment was immaculate and extremely well-located for activities in Bushwick and beyond. I would recommend GamePad 3000 to anyone looking for an affordable and comfortable place to stay in the neighborhood.

  • My stay at GamePad 3000 was absolutely perfect. Cleanliness is the highest priority for me personally and Jan's place was immaculate. Very well-organized interior and convenient and safe location in Bushwick. Close to Manhattan but it is worth to explore the neighborhood. The apartement has a beautiful view and it is great for people that like a quiet environment. Jan is super friendly and responsive. His Users Manual and Menu Book are very helpful and fun. The home theatre is an added Bonus and makes a stay with Jan a must when you travel to NYC. I will be back for sure:)

  • It was a pleasure staying at GamePad 3000! Jan was very prepared, insightful, and courteous. Jan recommended a great local coffee shop "Kave" and showed me around to some of the best bars in Brooklyn. We had a great time at a stand up comedy night, where I tried doing stand up for the first time. He prepared coffee in the morning and was very knowledgable of the area. To end the stay, we played a new release video game on a huge projector! It was an awesome Airbnb overall!

  • Jan and his Gamepad 3000 are simply not to be missed. A very clean, comfy and cosy place, perfected located for all of my needs.
    A great host, witty and choc' full of information on the neighbourhood. He made me feel at home and was tolerant of my
    late night comings and goings. As for the details regarding his Gamepad/Home, they are duly noted and speak for themselves.
    In a word...Awesome!
    Thank you, Jan.

  • Jan was a great host! He was available to answer questions and even have a conversation. Jan is down to earth, and really takes pride in making his guest have a positive experience in NYC... The apartment is in a good location and just so well put together. I would definitely stay again!!! Thank you Jan for a great stay :-)

  • Jan's place was great, very well-located in Bushwick. Jan himself is completely on top of all details and very welcoming. Plus, he's into some really cool gaming-based art. I wish I could be around for his open studio!
