  • My stay at JJ, Justin and their cute dog Boro was absolutely wonderful.
    Everything was clean and modern and they really make an effort to create a home away from home.

    The location of the apartment is ideal, close to public transport - with the F line taking you to downtown Manhatten in a little more than half an hour - and safe. There are lots of grocery stores and food options nearby, especially the restaurants on Cortelyou Road (which is only a 10 minute walk) away are worth visiting.

    JJ and Justin are both super nice, friendly and have advise ready on anything you want to know about New York.

    I would recommend staying at their place to anyone who's planning to go to New York.

  • My stay at JJ and Justin's home was absolutely perfect! It was the best i could ask for my stay in NY! Everything is so clean, the room is really comfortable, subway station is 1min far, the neighborhood is really safe! Plus JJ and Justin were so nice, they give me so many advices about everything about the life here! And Boro, their dog, is so cute! Perfect for everyone who wants a beautiful&comfortable stay in NY.

  • I had a great month at Jj's! Great location, easy access to subway, and lots of little corner stores near by.

  • Had a great time in this room. Apartment is great, super modern and the view from the roof is awesome. Two subway stations for different lines are within 10 minutes' walking distance. A typical ride to lower Manhattan is 45 minutes. The neighbourhood is very multicultural and very safe. The price is super reasonable, the hosts are friendly and Boro the dog is super cute!

  • I stayed a month in NY to work. Jj and Justin (and their dog Boro) were very friendly ! The apartment was perfect ! All you can need is there ! I really enjoyed the exercise room too as the rooftop and the recreational room. The subway is at 5 minutes walking and it takes about 30 minutes to go to downtown Manhattan ! I came back very late several times and never felt unsafe in the neighboorhood (very quiet).
    You can find many groceries restaurants...close to the apartment...

    The only thing I would say is that, there is no AC in the bedroom, so during hot days it can be a bit uncomfortable to sleep. But there's nothing they can do about it !

    If you visit the amazing NY city, I would recommend you to stay in JJ and Justin's apartment ! Plus, it's very cheap !

    Thanks for all !

  • The room apartment was very clean and Jj, her husband, and particularly Boro (their dog) were very friendly. Boro and I became good friends. The subway was 5 minutes away and on a convenient line. The location is great for someone who needs to go to Brooklyn, lower Manhattan or the Financial District as the apartment is half an hour from the first stop in southern Manhattan. I needed to be in midtown Manhattan, in the Central Park area, and it was about an hour commute to get there. The shower is located in the master bathroom but since the couple works nights it works out. The neighbourhood is safe, I walked back very late at night several times with no problems. There are a bunch of small restaurants, a supermarket, and bakeries on the way to the subway. Overall it's a nice apartment and looks exactly the same as in the pictures.

  • Stayed at JJ & Justin's place for a month. Many shops, grocery stores open till late night. Safe location and about 5-7 minutes walk to subway F train.
    JJ was very nice, helpful and provided everything whatever I needed. Her dog was very friendly and super cute. I will recommend their place to anyone who is visiting NYC.

  • I needed a place to crash for a few weeks while I was in between apartments in NYC. JJ and Justin were great: super accommodating, nice (they hooked up breakfast, coffee, snacks, etc). Super hip couple, really made an effort to make me feel like home. Room is great for one person!

    February 2013
  • JJ and Justin made for great hosts. They helped me get acquainted with the city, grocery stores, post office, train lines, etc. There is a big subway map in the room which was great to help plan my routes before I left the apartment.

    Since getting around takes up a lot of time, it was important for me to stay in an apartment with an exercise room in the facility. It is a lot bigger than I anticipated as well.

    All in all I enjoyed my stay and would highly recommend it to anyone.
