The Space

Unlike every apartment in NYC, your room, and the apartment are huge. Your room (19'x17') features two windows, a queen sized bed, couch and ample closet space.

The apartment itself features an eat in kitchen, WiFi, laundry in the bathroom and a back patio.

We're a 3 and a half minute walk from the G train (Union Square in 20 minutes) and a 7:40 minute walk to the M train (SoHo in 20 minutes).

Our neighborhood straddles the South Williamsburg/Bed-Stuy border. While the neighborhood is predominantly Hasidic and unfortunately doesn't feature any of the world famous pizza Brooklyn is known for, we're not so far of a walk to the "hip" areas of Williamsburg or the better parts of Clinton Hill/Fort Greene.

In regards to safety, my partner and I haven't had any issues while living here. Our upstairs neighbors are both women, and when asked, they seem pretty okay with the area (one is the daughter of a cop if that makes any difference).

For all you yogis out there, you can pick up the B48 bus (a few feet from our apartment) and take it to a block away from the Yoga To the People studio. They have donation based Vinyasa yoga classes and $8 Bikram yoga classes.

We provide sheets, comforter (if its cold) and towels.

We do have a small dog, Bruno, who's too lazy to bark, and while friendly is kept out of your room with a baby gate in addition to the door.

Freddy and I are respectful of our guests as much as possible. If that means you want to chat about the area and get the low down on NYC, we're happy to hang out; but if you want to do your own thing and keep to yourself we'll give ya all the space you need.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Had an awesome time staying with AJ and Fede! Great room, nice and close to the subway and easy to get around.

    AJ and Fede were great hosts who were always happy to help out with recommendations/directions/local knowledge.

  • AJ and Fede were amazing hosts. The apartment was always clean and the bedroom had everything you could ask for. They were both very helpful as well as accommodating. And bruno is the sweetest pup that knows not to go to any part of the apartment that you are in. So all I can say is that it was a great experience overall.

  • This place was wonderful! Absolutely spacious for NYC! It was great to have a couch in your room and extra space for your stuff. Aj and Freddy were lovely hosts and always able to answers questions and help out! Freddy was extremely kind and helped with bags and letting us in early and late upon arrival and checkout. The only thing about this place is that it is not in a very exciting neighborhood (i.e. you can't walk downstairs and go to a super cute brunch or coffee shop). You have to walk about 15 mins of so or take a subway to get to Williamsburg. If you're not concerned with location however, this is a great place and the subway is close so getting around is easy.

  • Mi hermano y yo hemos compartido muy poco tiempo con los anfitriones y Bruno...pero me hubiera encantado compartir más!!! Ya que ellos son muy simpáticos y agradables. La habitación es formidable y la cama muuuuuyyyy cómoda!!! La estancia aunque corta ha sido fabulosa! No tengo ninguna queja! Lo recomiendo!! Ojalá hubiera podido quedarme todo el tiempo que pasé en NYC allí!! Los enlaces con el metro Manhattan son muy buenos y el barrio es tranquilo y muy seguro. Gracias chicos!!!

  • With AJ, Freddy and supercutie Bruno (Dog) we had our first Air B&B-Experience. We enjoyed a great hospitality. The room was exact as described in the add. The Guys were very kind and helpful with information about NewYork. It was awsome to stay with them, thank you.

  • Aj and Freddy were absolutely perfect hosts. When we first arrived they were there to greet us and helped us order a massive cheese pizza which is a definite bonus. They were super friendly, helpful and their pup Bruno is the best thing since sliced bread. We loved our stay (huge comfy room!!) and would definitely recommend to anyone and everyone.

  • Fred and Aj are very welcoming and very friendly. They gave us some helpful tips about the city. The apartment is very clean and organized. The bedroom was just as shown in the ad.

Freelance Graphic Designer
In a word, we're awesome! I'm a freelance graphic designer (the red head in the picture) and my partner (the one licking the ice cream) is a full time nursing student and we live in a sweet apartment in Brooklyn with our amazingly not smart pup, Bruno. We've been around the world together and are always looking forward to our next trip. We've lived in New York City for the past 7 years (4 of those year's we've lived together), but haven't lived here long enough to be jaded assholes. Freddy's from Argentina, so if habla espanol is a necessity, we got ya covered.
