I am a producer who loves NYC but also likes to travel as much as possible.
Cheriyan was A GREAT HOST! He kept asked if we need anything and provided everything what we need during we stay. Also he was very flexible checkout time which is impossible with hostel. The location is very close with Manhattan (one one stop) and also close with subway station(only three blocks. His cat also really friendly and lovely. I also recommended one of my friend who visit NYC and they also satisfied to stay his place. Please consider this place and I am sure that you never disappoint with your decision :)
Staying at Cheriyan's apartment is such an amazing experience. It was my first time in NYC, and he definitely helped made it amazing. The quote "Come as strangers, leave as friends" is embodied by him, and he helped me feel right at home in this big city. The apartment is just one stop from Manhattan, and it was such a quick ride that I missed the stop the first time thinking that it would have taken longer. His cat is amazingly friendly and fun to be around; doesn't scratch or bite you. (: I would recommend staying here and would definitely do the same when I come back to NYC. P.S: Do yourself a favour and explore the Queens/LIC neighbourhood too.
Le logement est idéalement situé pour visiter N-Y, le seul point négatif est le bruit généré par la circulation au vu de la situation du logement qui est très propre et John est un hôte accueillant et disponible.
Cheriyan was the most welcoming host. I arrived over Thanksgiving weekend, so he wasn't present initially, but he texted a couple times just to make sure everything was going well in NY. I even left an item after, and he's been very accommodating in getting it back to me.
The room is very comfortable - I slept like a baby! I'd highly recommend this room/ apartment.
Nous avons passé 11 jours dans l'appartement de Cheriyan, c'est tout simplement le top à New York. 3 stations de métro de Times Square, 2 de Williamsburg. La chambre est vraiment spacieuse, et possède une entrée privée qui permet de rentrer à n'importe quelle heure sans déranger personne ! Nous n'avons malheureusement croisé Cheriyan que 2 fois mais ça nous a suffit à comprendre que c'était vraiment quelqu'un de très sympa !! Merci Cheriyan pour ce super séjour, mon prochain séjour à New York sera chez toi, pour sûr !
We spent 11 days in Cheriyan's appartment, it's simply the best in New York. 3 subway stations of Times Square, 2 of Williamsburg. The room is really spacious, and has a private entry which allows to return at anytime without disturbing anybody! We have unfortunately speak to Cheriyan only 2 times but that's enough to understand that it's a really nice guy!! Thank you Cheriyan for this great stay, my next stay in New York will be at your place, for sure!
Cheriyan was a great host, very nice and accommodating. The place is very conveniently located only 1 stop out of Manhattan and on a street with bars and restaurants. A relatively chill area overall which is great if you don't always want to be in the thick of things. The room itself is also pretty clean and spacious. Only issue I had was that I am a light sleeper and the apt is on the 2nd floor where the sounds from the street seemed to echo in a bit. Overall though, it is a great deal and I would highly recommend.
Muy buen anfitrión, siempre estuvo pendiente de nosotros, todo muy limpio y es realmente muy cerca de Manhattan, no hay nunca problemas con llegar tarde o salir temprano porque la habitación es totalmente privada y muy cómoda, tienes llaves solo para tu habitación, recomendamos mucho a Cherayian y esperamos verlo nuevamente, muchas gracias por todo
John was a great host - he kept asked if we need anything, and provided what we need. Out bus to leave NYC was at 6pm, and John was very flexible with checking out time - which is not possible at hotel or other youth hostels. Location is GREAT - I would definitely come back here if I am going to NYC again.
La ubicación es excelene, aunque estas en Queens en 15 min estas en Times Square. Nosotros solo ibamos a dormir aunque podiamos usar la cocina. Desde un parque cercano a la casa hay una vista muy bonita de Manhattan. Como pega pondrá que para ir al baño había que salir de la habitación al pasillo del edificio y entrar en la otra parte de la casa y que la habitación era ruidosa ya que daba a una avenida de Queens.
We picked this place for its location, and were not disappointed: Manhattan is one stop away, Greenpoint and Williamsburg are not far away, the area itself is clean and nice.
So is the (quite big) room and the rest of the apartment.
Cheriyan is a great, fun guy, and super helpful!
John and his guests were absolute excellent guests to have. They were clean, considerate, friendly and respectful. A delight to have and definitely recommended to any host. Thank you John! Please consider this your home whenever you are in NYC. Warmly, Fotini :)
Great Guys!!! You are welcome anytime!!!
