Peaceful Minimal Room with Terrace

Apartment - Private room · Greene Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11221, United States

The Space

Greetings to one and all from the Nation!

I have a furnished room in my chill-lax apartment in the cultural center of Brooklyn, Bed-Stuy. People often note the cuzziness and cleanliness of the place. The room comes with a full sized futon, a desk, and a closet.

The other rooms of the apartment are usually occupied by tourists and students. The neighborhood is great; it is where Bedstuy meets Bushwick, and full of artists and places to listen to live music. There are tons of restaurants nearby, but the immediate area is quiet and family friendly.

This area is really picking up, is perfectly safe, is 15 minutes away from Williamsburg and 30 minutes from Times Square. There are numerous buses and trains nearby.

You are:

Low-key, quiet, respectful
Clean or respectful of shared space.
Looking to do something in any one of Brooklyn's cool neighborhoods.

  • It works if you are on a budget...the place does not have a stove...only some little electric stoves...relativity close to subway...we were allowed to stay with our little chihuahua puppy which was nice.....rooms are simple but it worked since we just wanted to sleep at night.....king was nice and attentive when he was home every couple of days.

  • Room was terrible, but for this money you rather have to be reckoned with. On the picture it looks like is double bed, but in fact it was mattress on the floor. Kitchen equipped with the necessary equipment, but almost no cups, cutlery, plates. Dirty, but at least it was warm in the room. We haven't met King, but there's no problem with collecting keys.. Plus it's a great location and peaceful neighborhood.

  • What you expected for the price and I realize that the photo doesn't clearly show that the single mattress was actually on the floor. It is minimal as promised and the room is fit for young travelers that only need a spot to just sleep and nothing else.

    Most of other people occupying other rooms (there are four rooms on that floor) minded their own business and is like growing up with siblings with one bathroom. Sometimes you have to wait, and sometimes you got lucky. One of them did smoked in the room right across ours and stank up the entire floor but we pointed it out that its not allowed and he stopped. Everything was fine again. That's it. I think that was the only issue with other guests we had in 9 nights we slept there.

    The first night was a bit confusing, the room smelled and apparently was not clean but the maid showed up the next day and was friendly. After that, the stink was gone.

    I'd recommend anyone considering this room your own roll of toilet paper and make sure the request that the sheets and bedding are being washed because ours aren't.

    This room is cheaper than the ratty motel and I'd pick that room over it but do I recommend this room to anyone over 30? No. For the price, there are sacrifices to be made. lol. I mean, there were 8 people sharing one bathroom.

    The room isn't terrible but is not the best either. Oh, and the location? Its close to the M train which we use everyday and Broadway. The area is clearly one-race type but like I care? The deli? Yum! Appearance can be deceiving, there's one on your left from the place's front door, they give you awesome chunk of meat in the sub and for only 3.50, the other deli on your right, delicious effort of how they layered up the sub but there were less meat. We preferred the right-side deli the best.

    I think I once bumped into King briefly or just one really really nice dude that looks better than the photo of King I see on Airbnb. So don't expect your host around but he's a phone call away.

  • Room & Bathroom were very dirty. I was travelling alone and I'm not sensitive about such things, but if I'd been travelling with my girlfriend staying there would've been difficult for her. I didn't cook onc so I cant tell if it's really possible. There was no toilet paper provided. You can chill on the roof which was great for me. If you really just need a place to sleep and leave your stuff and don't care about the dirt like me its good, especially seeing the price.

  • its cheap,nothing bad happens,but i guess you can get something better if you just spend a few bucks more,no really interaction with king,thats one of the things i really have to complain about,sometimes there was no toiletpaper for a few days and it was dirty,but its in a really cool neighborhood

  • Very basic room - but expected for the price. Being summer, the room got very hot and stuffy. We liked that we had access to the rooftop. Kitchen was minimal and we weren't able to cook any food but having the refrigerator was handy. Really liked the area - lots of cool cafes and shops nearby! Metro station only about a 10 minute walk away. If you're looking for a bed to sleep on and not too concerned about anything else, this is perfect.

  • The house isn't like in the description but you can make your idea with the reviews ( so you know that's not a clean place). The location is good and...just take flip flop for the shower ans ask for new sheets before your arrival. You never see King and the service is minimum, but if you ask something you can have it."Low price low service, you can " think like that.

  • Ci siamo trovati molto bene, nessun vincolo di orario, chiavi a disposizione, metro comoda e prezzo basso. Consigliato per chi volesse risparmiare sul pernottamento.

  • A éviter!
    Certes le prix est attrayant mais la chambre l'est beaucoup moins.
    Les photos ne correspondent pas du tout à la réalité.
    Tout d'abord nous n'avons pas eu la chance d'avoir un véritable lit mais un matelas posé à même le sol, sol qui n'avait probablement pas été balayé depuis des mois. Les draps étaient d'une propreté douteuse. Et nous avons en plus partagé la chambre avec des cafards!! Mais le pire reste la salle de bain qui était immonde de saleté. Ajoutons à ça le fait qu'il faisait en moyenne 40 degrés dans la chambre et que nous avions juste un minuscule ventilateur... Nous étions toujours très contents de quitter l'appartement le matin, est beaucoup moins d'y revenir le soir. Très décevant!!

  • El lugar es segun lo descrito, el barrio es trankilo y acesible al metro y otras cosas. Al llegar encontramos todo el lugar sucio ya que ninguno de los que alli se encontraban limpiaban en lo absoluto. El cuarto lleno de polvo y tierra y el baño con las paredes negras y la bañera sucia. No habian materiales para limpiar ni para recojer. El area comunal estaba igual de sucia con cafe derramado, los utencilios llenos de grasa, entre otras cosas. Tuvimos que comprar utencilios de limpieza al igual que papel de baño ya que el host solo trae un rollo cuando hay alguien nuevo y se lo exige, ademas los demas que se hospedan acabaron con todo y no aportaron nada. Solo se te brinda llave de la puesta del edificio y la puerta del apartamento pero tu cuarto no tiene seguridad y cualquiera puede entrar. El mobiliario del cuarto esta en malas condiciones, duermes en un matres en el piso y con ropa de cama vieja sin lavar. Aparte de todo lo antes mencionado, es un lugar, en donde si tienes unos compañeros de cuarto que cooperen, podras pasar una buena estadia.
