The Space



The apartment is located on the semi-basement of a two family house in Weehawken, NJ 07086.
The place is ideal for a visitor to the NY/NJ area or for a person or a couple needing to stay in the area for a short-term.

The commute to 42nd Street/The Port Authority Bus Terminal takes less than 15 minutes (except during rush hours when it could be longer); the house is located a few blocks walking distance from the last bus stop before the Lincoln Tunnel, walking distance to supermarkets, laundry mat, dry-cleaning and bodegas (small food/grocery stores).
Location is great if you need to visit the city daily; buses to Midtown Manhattan run in both directions practically 24 hours a day.

The apartment has an independent entrance from the main floors and features a large kitchen/dining/living room area, one bedroom with a full size bed (for two people), a desk and a chair, and a large bathroom.
As you can see from the pictures, the apartment is also furnished with a sofa bed (big enough for two people), iron and ironing table, dining table, metal and glass room counter, as well as, kitchen utensils (pots, pans, etc.) and china; it also features closet space.

The price includes free Wi-Fi (wireles internet connection), central heating and airconditioning, cold and hot water, electricity and Cable TV.

Washing of bed linens and towels is only done after your departure, but I do offer a complimentary second set of sheets and towels if you prefer to change them during your stay.

If you plan to stay for an extended period of time, I offer cleaning of the studio for an optional $40 (per cleaning).

If you bring your own vehicle, parking will be on the neighborhood streets, for which I will provide you with a Visitor's Tag, which you can use for the duration of your stay.

I also speak Spanish, French and I am able to communicate in Portuguese and Russian if you prefer to use another language.

This Semibasement Studio Apartment is an ideal economical option if you are visiting New York or the surrounding areas. Our neighborhood is quiet and safe and offers great views of the Manhattan skyline, a few blocks away from our street.


Many inquire about the price and extra fees and how to proceed with payment. When you input the dates and number of people you will get the total cost. This will be the total price that will be charged to your credit card. All the payments are safely made with credit card or other methods to AirBnB when booking. They hold the money until the day you check-in and then it is sent to me.
Bookings with me are done with the "strict" cancellation policy and all cancellations should be done through AirBnB.
Deposit is for keys and/or damages. If the studio is returned as you found it, your deposit will be refunded by AirBnb 48 hours after check-out.

Feel free to contact me with further questions.

I look forward to hosting you.

  • We liked our stay at Aleksin's appartment! It is comfortably situated in 20-30 min from the center of Manhatten in quite neighborhood in NJ. The bus stop is in 5 min walk from the apt. For $3 you can get to Bus terminal in the center of Manhatten almost 24 hours. The studio is quate big for 3 person, clean and has everything we need. Aleksin and his brother Luis were very helpful! I highly reccomend this place!

  • Had a great stay at Aleksín's place! The apartment is incredibly spacious and clean. Aleksín was also very easy to communicate with. Locationwise, you are literally 15 minutes from Manhattan (Port Authority Bus Terminal). Would definitely stay here again!

    Excelente apartamento! Es espacioso y limpio. Fue fácil comunicarnos con Aleksín en todo momento. En cuanto a la localidad, está literalmente a 15 minutos de Manhattan (Port Authority Bus Terminal). Definitivamente volveríamos a quedarnos aquí!

  • Aleksin is a great and well organized Airbnb host: before our arrival he sent us very useful detailed information regarding the location of the apartment and the buses to NYC. We could even check in early, very convenient for us since we arrived in the morning. We did not get the chance to meet Aleksin but everything was so well explained and we found everything we needed in the apartment so after our arrival we did not need any help. The apartment is nice, clean and is well equipped (only a microwave is missing). As described on Airbnb it is in the basement but besides that there is of course no view we did not feel like in a basement. For all Europeans like us a full size bed is not that wide (a bit under 140cm), we did not mind since we are a couple but if you are staying with a friend you should keep that in mind (but there is a bed sofa as well). The connection to Manhattan is really good. We recommend to take Aleksin’s advice and use the bus-vans from Patterson. The busses run all the time and we never waited longer than a couple of minutes for the next bus. I really takes only 15 minutes to Manhattan (Port Authority Bus Terminal) which is very close to Times Square. In heavy traffic the longest it took us was around 30 minutes but that was during rush hour. The housing area is nice and quiet, which is relaxing after spending the day in Manhattan. We definitely recommend this nice apartment for economical people like us that do not want to spend a lot of money for a bad hotel in Manhattan. We enjoyed our stay very much.

  • We really liked the studio during our stay there, because it was very well furnished, very spacious and clean. The kitchen is very well equipped, there even is an oven!
    It takes about twenty minutes to get to Manhattan by bus (3.20 $ per trip) and the bus stop isn't far away from the studio. The neighborhood is quiet and safe.

  • Excellent accueil de notre hôte et de sa famille dans un coquet et confortable appartement. Idéalement situé pour un repos assuré dans un quartier résidentiel et arboré. A un quart d'heure en bus de NYC, je vous recommande chaleureusement cet hébergement. Bon séjour

  • Very good studio, situated in quite New Jersey. It's bigger than it looks on photos. We found many necessary little things here and we loved this soft bed. Thank you, we recommend this place other travelers. But we found only one minus - cold floor at April. You need shoes, no barefoot. But others thing were excellent. Thank you!

  • Appartement bien aménagé (vaisselle, salle de bain, chambre, bz, wifi)
    Appartement très bien situé avec vu sur Manhattan à 100m, avec arrêt de bus à moins de 5 min à pied et à 5-10 min en bus de Time Square.
    Appartement situé au sous sol d'une maison on entend les pas des habitants du dessus.

  • The location is great for visitors to NYC or NJ.

    The full size bed was a challenge for us since we are tall.

    Parking on the streets was impossible there were no spots every time we got there, unfortunately if you park by the owner you pay $ 10/night. Be prepared to pay that every night. I think one shouldn't pay a parking spot when on property.

    There is no microwave in the house which was a challenge to reheat anything.
