Fue la primera vez que visitaba Nueva York y sentía un poco de miedo por que no conocía la ciudad. Nansha ayudo mucho, me indicó donde hacer el mercado, donde tomar el bus y esto hizo mi estancia mucho más fácil.
overall my experience was good. I did not spend too much in the room since I was working most of the time. I really liked the fact that the room has private bath and TV. The room was clean. the bottom line this room served my need for the price i payed for.
Judith and Etiane are wonderful hosts. Etiane really goes the extra mile and is on site to help with anything and everything. The neighborhood was perfect for easy parking and public transportation. I loved having my own bathroom! It was a treat to stay and I hope to return.
This was really an ideal place for me. There is so much space in Judith's apartments! It was great to be in Jersey City and still have a huge kitchen, living room, a back deck, plenty of parking, and a private bathroom. I was working in downtown Manhattan, so the commute was about 40 min, and a bit harder for midtown and other areas, but I didn't mind because the JC light rail is so nice and because this place is so far west, it was easy to get out of JC (by car or bus) to other areas of NJ (beach, etc) or Newark airport. It was also close to Liberty State Park/Ellis and Liberty Island which are beautiful.
The area is not the "trendy" new part of JC, and it was a little frustrating to have to travel to other areas for shopping and restaurants, but it was worth the peace and quiet. The neighborhood is just full of families and kids with very little traffic. I felt safe, especially being on the third floor. The only downside was a neighbor's dog that barked all night every night, but a room toward the front of the apt or earplugs could avoid that.
Etienne, Judith's friend who hosted, was very helpful and generous, though he does have his hands full with the number of people coming and going. The place has a way of bringing together kind and interesting people from all over the world. I never had any issues with my roommates.
It was also generally kept very clean and was like an oasis compared to the dirty city outside. I always looked forward to coming home after a long hot day in NY. It's a great place to stay, and I would totally do it again.
PRIME! You're right near public transportation literally. From the front door, if you walk to the right, you're at the light rail at the end of the street and if you walk to the left, you're at the bus station. The #10 will take you straight to Journal Square where the PATH train is. The 119 only runs during the weekday and I never took it so I couldn't tell you about it. Just be cognizant of delays on all public transportation on the weekends and at night (this happens in NYC also). Also, the area could look sketchy when you first come to it but all of Jersey City pretty much looks like that unless you're in downtown or Hoboken. I never had any safety issues and I was out pretty late on a few nights. At night, I recommend taking a taxi from journal square. It will only cost you like 7 bucks so it's worth it.
Very nice. The decorations are very nice and homely. My room was very spacious and I had cable and internet. The shared area is nice also and the other roommates are good at cleaning up after themselves. The washer and dryer is downstairs and like any other house, just use it in non-prime hours. The walls are kinda thin but the other tenants are quite respectful of each other and aren't too noisy.
Judith wasn't there but her husband Nansha is so nice! He was always willing to lend a helping hand and even came to get me from Journal Square after I got lost. He also took me back to the airport when I left because super shuttle didn't come to the area. He was always willing to answer questions and fixed things if needed very promptly. We also had a social outing that most of the roommates came to which was super fun.
I would stay here again and plan to once me moving to NJ is confirmed.
I highly recommend you staying at Nansha and Judith's place!!
Judith's place was SUPER ideal for me...SUPER ideal. Getting to the bus stop and then the train station was pretty easy. I had access to the house at anytime I wanted. Judith was very warm, nice, great to chat with. We had great conversations from time to time and I loved that.
She is smart, funny and always concerned about the welfare of her tenants.
I had a fantastic 2.5months stay at hers and I'd dare say as long as her place is available, I'm saying goodbye to hotels :-)
Thank you Judith and Nasha and I say cheers to a new friend. Thank you.
Judith was very accommodating in answering all my questions prior to my arrival. She was there to welcome me even when it was 8 am in the morning. What I really appreciate about Judith is that she really tries to help her tenants out. When I asked her if they have any rice cooker (since asians basically love to eat rice), she immediately volunteered to let me borrow hers. Same thing with the cleaning supplies. It was very convenient cooking at her place too as it has everything that you need to cook.
I definitely recommend this place.
