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.
Ivo helped immensely with getting into the building when I had trouble upon arrival. Though I never got to meet him, he answered my texts and calls quickly and was very nice. The room was a room, it had each of the amenities described in the listing. It was chilly outside and the room maintained a comfortably warm temperature throughout my stay. My only issue, which is not the fault of Ivo, was the neighbors with whom I shared a bathroom were a bit loud at times and I could hear their speaking/arguing through the shared bathroom walls into my room. They also left quite a mess in the bathroom one day which I had to at least tidy up in order to use the sink comfortably (including cigarette butts and ashes in the trash of an accommodation that's supposed to be smoke free). To any future guests, remember to unlock your neighbor's door when leaving the bathroom. Forgot (sorry) when I ran out for my interview and the neighbors had to go through my room to get back in and unlock their side. Quite the surprise to find my bathroom door unlocked (all my belongings were still safe in the room, thank goodness) when I came back after being out all day. :s Overall, the room is pretty clean, bed wasn't very comfortable but it served it's purpose for my short stay in NY. There are 2 train stations near by A/C (about 1 min walk away) and J/Z (about 7-10 mins depending on your speed) and you can get to the city in about 20-30mins, maybe a bit more depending on how far you're going. The neighborhood is OK, would not suggest roaming around at night, and really has no spots to hang or eat nearby. But with the train so close, one can travel to most entertainment areas quickly.
We had a great time! The room was clean and warm (and bigger than we expected). The kitchen is fully equipped; the bathroom was clean (there is also a hair dryer, so girls don't take yours), it is a shared bathroom so we had to pay attention if we left the other guests door open; the neighborhood seems pretty safe and it's so close to the subway station and it's one of the things we most liked there. The host was really friendly and helpful. We had a great time in NYC! We'll surely be back!
My second staying at Ivo´s house and everything was amazing again. The room was clean, warm and is larger than can seem on the pictures. The location where the house is situated is quite and near to C train. I always felt there safety, even if I was returning in the midnight. Ivo is very friendly and helpful person, he always responded to me as soon as possible (btw thanks for talking about NHL;-)).
I can recommend the staying here to all who are looking for cheap accomodation. If I will go to NY again, I will do my best to stay there.
Great place to stay on a budget! We were comfortable with the neighborhood and the subway is one block away -easy, quick access! Although, it is a 20-30 min ride into the city, but that didn't bother us. We stayed in the winter and the house was warm. The room is just what you need -bed, desk, nightstands, outlets, closet, wifi. The bathroom is connected to the room and shared with only one other room. The locking system for the shared bathroom worked well, and we had no problems with the people in the other room. The host was friendly and always very quick to respond to texts. Check in/out was simple and convenient. It's not a 5 star accommodation, but it's clean and comfortable. We loved our stay here and would stay again!
