About this listing
Welcome to Williamsburg!
Please read the description and FAQ's carefully before making any bookings.
This is a 100% private room with lock and key situated in the heart of Williamsburg. Designed for the traveller on a budget, the room is at the front of my Art/Design studio that I share with my Mom.
Every soul must be included in the confirmation. Children and Babies included.
Inside your room is a kitchenette with microwave, fridge, kettle, toaster.
There is a 40 Inch flat screen TV with cable and WiFi and a fold down couch that is bigger than a double bed and very very comfortable.
My Mom has a living space towards the back of the studio which is a large distance from your room so you will feel quite private.
The bathroom has a shower and toilet and is shared with my mom and other Airbnb guests. There also is a golden retriever that live with my mom. She is very friendly but do not enter the shared space other than to exit for walks.
This is a converted basement warehouse.
Williamsburg has just been crowned the music and art capital of New York State.
- 5 min walk to the Williamsburg Market and East River Ferry
- 12min walk to Bedford ave to the L train.
- 3 stops to Union Square.
- You are also 10 mins from the Williamsburg bridge which you can walk or ride across to the Lower East Side.
I am an Australian who has been living here 4 years now and am often over seas which is when i rent out my place. As some one who came initially on a holiday myself I urge you to check this area out even if you don't stay with me.
There is plenty of unlimited free street parking.
You can catch a yellow cab from all air ports for about $40.
From JFK i recommend the cab but if you are travelling light you can catch the Airtrain to Howard Beach. Catch the A train (Blue Line) to Broadway Junction change to the L train (Grey Line) and get off at Bedford Ave. from there it is a 10 min walk up Bedford ave.

June is a very nice person who takes care of the people who stay with her.
Everything was exactly as described, so you get exactly what you pay for:)
Bedrooms were clean, bathroom was as clean as it can be, sharing it with 6 people. We would definitely stay there again:)
Great stay! June is awesome person and room was exactly as mentioned. Thank you!
June was very welcoming, she showed us around and was very attentive. The room looks just like the picture and is located in a nice area close to the metro (williamsburgh bridge). My sister and I stayed there for a night. Our stay was smooth but it was a bit hot in the room and since it is in the basement, the ventilation was not the best, I do not recommend it for people with asthma. Beside that, everything else was good.
Thank you for accepting me!
I had a very nice time in your house.
I was very glad to meet you!
Thank you so much!!
This experience was great even though the flat is located in the basement and the room is very small. June is nice and helpful host. The quarter is charming, we felt save there at night too. I can recommend this place to everybody who needs a place to stay over in NY for a good price.
June was kind enough to let us place our luggages earlier before check-in time so we can go exploring without all the heavy baggage.
We expected the tiny space, but definitely wished that it could be cleaner.
