Reviews for this host's other properties
Good things: price, shops next door speak Spanish, they give you the freedom to come and go back to the time you want, cleaning, bathroom and kitchen in good condition. have a beer on the stairs of the house and see live the typical action movies Bad things: the inability to talk to the hostess on many occasions, the uneasy feeling you get comments from people in the neighborhood and walking around at certain times of day and night (we came safely but from late at night is advisable to take a taxi) (still a good experience we get to know New York and New Jersey from another perspective and not as mere tourists). Transporting cards do not work in new york new jersey. You have to walk, catch a tram and then a subway to get to new york. The third bed is a sofa bed uncomfortable.
Cosas buenas: su precio, los comercios de al lado hablan español, la libertad que te dan de venir y volver a la hora que quieras, limpieza, baño y cocina en buenas condiciones. el tomarte una cerveza en las escaleras de la casa y ver en directo las típicas películas de acción
Cosas malas: la imposibilidad de hablar con la anfitriona en muchas ocasiones, la sensación de intranquilidad que te dan los comentarios de la gente del barrio y el andar por allí a determinadas horas del día y de la noche (nosotros vinimos sanos y salvos pero a partir de altas horas de la noche es conveniente coger un taxi) (aún así sacamos una buena experiencia de conocer New York y New Jersey desde otra perspectiva y no como simples turistas). las tarjetas de tranporte de new york no sirven en new jersey. Tienes que andar, coger un tranvía y luego un metro hasta llegar a new york. La tercera cama es un sofa-cama algo incómodo.
Very nice place to stay, clean, big, quiet, cheap, free internet. The only thing is the trip between the path and the house. I thought it was close enought to get there by foot but it's too far. So in the morning you have to take the bus, every 20 minutes on the week and 45 in the week end, and on the way back, after 9 PM you have to pick up a taxi. (7 dollars)
So it's a good place to stay, the neighborhood is very kind (try the breakfeast in the corner of community pawn and woodward) but be aware of the time to reach the place.
Very friendly hostess.
Room was absolutely convenient to sleep in. Bathroom was also good.
Michael, the other guy who lived in, was also very friendly and helpful.
Neighbourhood seemed pretty OK.
The only a bit negative thing is that it take pretty long to get to Manhattan and you have to take 2-3 transports.
But for this price it is not a shame to drive 15min longer.
I would recommend it!
The room and the bathroom were fine but the only problem is the geographic situation, it is in Jersey city, which seems not to be a safe place, furthermore it is faraway from ny center at about 35 min and you have to take 2 trains.
Otherwise, I met two "roommates" very kind and ready to help me for anything
