:::A NOTE FROM YOUR HOST:::
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!
Jose and Ysaira
The cleaning fee only applies to the room itself. Both the bathroom and the kitchen are both communal spaces and do not fall under the rooms cleaning fee. Therefore, if you used them, you are required to clean up after yourself when you do.
Jose is a very kind host, and he really helped us a lot. There is a train station near his flat, and the train could connect this street to the center of New York, just half an hour. Although the environment of this flat is not very quiet, the price is cheap and the location is convenient.
thank you Yuan, you guys were awesome, it feels really good when I get to meet people as great as you guys. We meet all sorts of people good and the bad. Majority have been good like you, and others have been bad. But thank you for being great and honest Yuan:)
Overall I'd say this was a good renting experience. The host was very pleasant and helpful. I liked that the room was spacious and that I had my own key to get in and out. There were a few cons to this trip though. I think it was moreso the fault of the other guests and not so much the host but the kitchen and bathroom were somewhat disgusting at times. I went into the kitchen once and there was food dropping all over the stove and the trash was overflowing. Again, I think it was more the fault of the other guests. Unfortunately there was no TV. The last and probably biggest con for me was that for some reason the picture listed, is not of the room I was given. It definitely wasn't as good a room but it worked for the time being.
Hallo zusammen. Die beiden Gastgeber empfehle ich jedem weiter. Sie sind sehr hilfsbereit, freundlich und sehr gastgeberisch. Was ihnen ist, ist auch temporär dein.
Habe mich sehr wohl gefühlt wie bei mir zuhause!
Ich wünsche den beiden Gastgeber alles Gute und bedanke mich nochmals recht herzlich für die super Gastfreundschaft und hoffe auf ein baldiges Wiedersehen!
Alles Gute meine Freunde.
Room is exactly as pictured. Bus stop is right outside. Train stop is a 5-10 minute walk. Didn't see Jose, he was out of town, but his wife Ysaira was very nice to us. When we checked out, she even told us the fastest way to get to the bus station, and provided an iron for us to use.
We had an awesome stay with Jose and Ysaira!! They are so friendly and they really made us feel at home. They are the perfect hosts. Jose was very flexible with our arival time since we had to drive all the way up from DC and he even helped us out in the middle of the night. They are always available to answer all your questions and they try to help you out as much as possible. We had a lot of nice conversations with Jose and we even had a few drinks together. The room is very nice and it is very easy to get to Manhatten by subway. Altogether the perfect place to stay for a couple of nights!! We definitly recommend their place and we would definitly come back to visit our new friends when we visit New York City again!
bueno es un lugar muy calmado, aunque en las noches un poco solitario. no estuvimos mucho tiempo en el apartamento pero fue muy como estas hay pudimos descansar que es lo importante. se presentaron inconvenientes por una construcción que hacían en el piso de arriba en donde se cayo el techo en la habitación. pero to fue solucionado. es un buen lugar para una emergencia y si vas de paso
The host was very nice and friendly. The location is way good, very close to the subway. Clean rooms but kitchen could improve
