:::A NOTE FROM YOUR HOST:::

Hi There,
When visiting New York people want to stay in an affordable, nice, clean place… and that is exactly what we are offering!! Although the Bronx is not as popular as Manhattan (the city), the Bronx has a lot to offer, and a lot of historical landmarks which include, but not limited to: Yankee Stadium, the Bronx Zoo, the Bronx Botanical Garden, City Island, etc. Let’s not forget, the Bronx is the birthplace of rap! As your host, we will provide you with a guidebook of places to visit in New York City (five boroughs). The Bronx is filled with interesting spaces, parks, community gardens… there so much to see that there won’t be a dull moment! The Bronx is a very big place so these places may not be very close but they're worth the trip, but there are trains (4, D, and B) and buses (BX 1, BX 2, BX 3, BX 32 & BX36) really close by to the apartment, so you only need a Metrocard! We will supply you with maps and resources so your trip can be as enjoyable as possible.

We look forward to meeting you!

  • Big room, 2 blocks away from subway station, Jose and Ysaira were very friendly and helpful. We had no problems with neighborhood although it did not altogether feel safe. But we were late every day and we were ok. Will stay again if we are lucky to go to NY again.
    Good value for money!

  • Jose is great! We spend 5 nights in one of his rooms and there was enough space for all of us 4 adults.
    It was clean and perfect for our short trip. Jose was really helpful and he even recorded all of the FIFA World Cup games for ous to watch them in the evenings .
    The bathroom was small but sufficient.
    Easy to find and to discover NYC!

  • Jose and his wife are awesome. I live in Bronx but I needed this apartment for my guest. It was great. I mean Jose is the best host ever, he will help you in any time for everything. The room is big and for that money is a great value. the furniture is not new but is ok. You have microwave and plasma tv, fan and the most important thing is very clean with nice sheets. we had clean bathroom also and kitchen. We did not have problem in the neighborhood, we were there in 1 am, 2 am, 10 pm but is a little strange...From 1 -10 I give 9 for everything. thank you Jose

  • Jose was a fantastic host! Two friends and I stayed for 8 nights at his place and although it was quite a distance from downtown manhattan, you only needed to take one train (very close to the house) that took you to all the main attractions in New York. The room was moderately clean and Jose had two additional air mattresses available if you have a larger party that needs to stay. However, be prepared to bundle up at night since the room does get a bit chilly because the landlord controls the temperature of the buildings. For my friends and I who didnt know this, Jose was more than willing to provide extra blankets :)
    The washroom and kitchen areas are shared and I really cant say anything about the kitchen because we didnt get to us it much, but the washroom looks like it does need some work done. But still, Jose manages to keep the little space in order and the bathtub, toilet, and sink are clean and works fine (which is basically all you need!) But I do want to say that we did end up purchasing flipflops to wear around the house and would advise those that will be staying to bring something of the like.
    All in all, both my friends agree that our time at Jose's was absolutely wonderful and Jose was willing to go above and beyond to make the stay comfortable to all his guests. We will definitely love to stay with him again when we go to NY!
    Thanks so much Jose for being a wonderful host!! - Min, Sue, Stella

  • Jose is the best host ever, he is so nice and helpful he is always care for all bout you if you are enjoy the city and the house. Definitely if I'm going back to New York I book again with him. The apartment is clean and warm also is close to the metro station and just 4 steps from the Yankee stadium. I love my stay at Jose's apartment. Thanks a lot

  • José buena persona nos dio las llaves de casa y de la habitación para entrar y salir cuando quisiéramos nos hizo sentir muy cómodos, la cama espectacular muy bien, el TV bien hay varios canales, también nos dio la clave de wifi. En general todo estuvo bien.

  • Jose and Ysaira are awesome hosts and I will be back to their place when I travel to New York again. Jose was very helpful about what to do in the area and gave us full range to his kitchen. He is a very enjoyable, intelligent person all around and I felt very comfortable and at home in their house. I loved that he gave us a key and didn't care what time we came back through the doors. The train is about a 5-10 minute walk and it is not super central to the city but it was not life threatening to walk back to the house at 3 in the morning. The neighborhood may be intimidating at first but mostly people are friendly or soon their own thing. We were also able to use their dryer when it poured while we were there which we were gracious for. The room is not luxurious, I preferred the air bed to the bed, but I found it exciting like an adventure. What you see is what you get in the pictures and the hosts are worth hangin with. Hopefully I'll see them soon!

  • Jose is a very caring and welcoming host. He made every effort to help us feel comfortable at his home. He even cared to bring new towels for us in middle of the night because we forgot ours.

    Because we had an emergency, we needed to leave early and couldn't stay for the whole night. Even though, Jose was very understanding and helped us check out immediately.

    The only thing we don't really like is the neighborhood. The subway stations are a little bit far off. And when we stayed, the 4 train was not in service, making it very difficult to commute into Manhattan.

    Other than that, Jose is a great host and we are thankful to him for welcoming us into his home.

    Response from Jose And Ysaira:

    Thank you Thu for your kind words. I also have problems with the 4 train. I really wish the MTA would fix their services for it. I have to take a bus to get to my school at 7:45 A.M. and one day I took the 7:00 A.M. and I got to 59th street 10 minutes late. It truly is ridiculous their service. I don't know if this happened cuz of the snow, but that was my worse experience. Since that week you stayed with us it has improved, but I believe it could be better.

  • This was my second stay with Jose and Ysaira and it was just as the first time. Beyond excellent. I have been to other airbnb places and this is the best I have been to. The star ratings do not reflect the place at all. Apart from the hallway floor looking a little dirty, the bed room, bathrooms and kitchen were very very clean. When ever I come to New York, this is the place I am staying in. I highly recommend them, and everyone should be so lucky to stay here.
