About this listing
This private room is located in Brooklyn only one block away from the subway and 18 minutes away from Manhattan. It features a Queen-size bed that can accommodate 2 people. The room shares a full bathroom with another room. The house has just been entirely renovated with modern kitchen appliances, bathrooms and furniture. Free WiFi and laundry are available on the premises. There is a plethora of shops and grocery stores in the area. Guests are welcome to use the kitchens and the back yard free of any charge. Free street parking is available too.
As of me, I am European and rather curious about almost every culture there is under the sun. I am an easy-going and very friendly host. My goal is to provide a private, safe, clean, convenient, inexpensive and comfortable accommodation for adventurous travelers from around the world or local people in need of temporary furnished housing. I am available when needed but I do not intrude on my guests. I never cancel reservations unless a force of nature forces me to do so as I do not want my guests to rearrange their plans last minute.
No smoking, no drugs, no open fires
Unfortunately we never had the chance to meet our host, although our stay was good. The connection to the subway is very near and it takes about 30 minutes to reach central New York. The neighborhood seemed scary and it was quite loud but the people were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend staying here.
The room was clean and near to the subway. It took about 40 minutes to Manhatten. We didn't met S&I but he was very helpful on our arrival via airbnb chat.
We didn't like the location: we didn't feel safe in the evening but also during the day.
The air conditioner makes a lot of noise and the mattress was coverd with plastic (this is not good in summer).
The shower temperature was impossible to set.
Se didn't use the kitchen.
The appartment is close to line A and C.
This was one of the best homestay we've ever been. Really good neighborhood, Roger, for example, the next door sir was very helpfull. There is a grocery store right across the street. And the subway is really close too. I'll definitely come back here. We didnt think it was noisy at all there like other said.
Agora em português: galera, é muito bom ficar na casa do Ivo. Tem uma cozinha espaçosa, banheiros limpíssimos e não é nenhum pouco barulhento. É uma boa experiência pra nós brasileiros que quando viajamos costumamos ficar em hostels, a experiência é outra aqui.
Great place for a great value. Bathrooms were remodeled and future renovations are planned. Kitchens are big and you can cook too. Can't beat the value of the rooms for New York. Both the Blue and Brown lines are very close and you can get to lower Manhattan or Midtown in 25 minutes. Neighborhood is not the best, but most people are friendly in the neighborhood. Don't recommend staying out past 10pm though. Host is great and very responsive.
We had a very pleasant stay in NYC. The apartment was nice and clean. However, we were surprised to discover that the place was like a YMCA with 4 or 5 rooms rented , 2 bathrooms, 2 kitchens.
We never saw our host (he doesn't live there) but he was available to answer our questions by messages.
I also want to warn the future guests that the apartment is far from the center. It takes 40 minutes to get to Times Square, for example ! It is something to take into account !
On a passé un super séjour à New York. La chambre est bien, propre. Cependant quand nous avions réservé nous n'avions pas compris que l'appartement ressemblerait à une sorte d'auberge. En effet on ne vit pas chez les propriétaire, il y a 4/5 chambres qui sont loués, deux salles de bains à disposition, une cuisine... Nous n'avons pas rencontré le propriétaire mais il répondait très rapidement aux messages quand on avait une question.
Je veux également attirer l'attention des futurs locataires sur le fait que l'appartement est loin du centre ! Il faut compter 40 bonnes minutes pour aller à Times Square par exemple !
We didn't meet the host during our 2 nights stay.
The room was clean and the bathroom as well. Very close to the subway.
The air conditioning system was fixed weirdly and leaves the window open which really concerned me about the safety and someone breaking in through the window. I wish the host ha explained that to us. When I found out and explained the situation and I asked if he had another room and the only answer I got was "OK".
Very loud at night as people scream and put loud music in the neighborhood.
I went to the barber shop around the corner and he told me to be careful at night so I was a bit nervous about the safety of the neighborhood...
Otherwise its a cheap, clean room with quick access to transportation.
