I loved staying at 3B, and it will definitely be the place to land for me in Brooklyn for the foreseeable future. The people are what make this place so great, both the clientele that stay there, which included many international travelers, and the staff, all of whom were great to spend time with. My favorite part of my five... More

I stayed at 3B when attending a maker's conference and what a great experience! From the wonderful cozy rooms, the spectacular breakfasts, the stellar inn keepers and the interesting and diverse conversations with other guests, it all added up to make for one very enriching weekend! The subway to other areas of Brooklyn and Manhattan is a short block away... More

Spacious and great rooms with a big comfy bed. Inspiring morning-conversations with Joshua, Adam or any of the 3B hosts! And a big homemade fantastic breakfast, with creative eggs(!) or mûsli with dried fruits, seeds and nuts!

For those who prefer meeting people and sharing stories during their stay, this is the place. Managed by a helpful, unique team of young artists and entrepreneurs,3B is a fantastic place and representative of the local organic farming trend that is sweeping the country. The breakfast is beyond description: fresh fruit salads, omelettes that are crepe-like in their lightness, coffee... More

My daughter and I enjoyed our stay in this clean and comfortable B and B. Breakfasts were satisfying abd the fresh granola and organic fruits and veggies were plentiful. Rotating staff of young people were warm and helpful.

We finally got around to write a review of our stay at 3B. Me and my girlfriend stayed there for a week in April and were absolutely pleased. The connection you get with the owners and the rest of the guests is unique. As well as the all vegetarian breakfast that is made with love each morning. The thing that... More

I have stayed at 3B twice so far--once with a friend and once with my stepdaughter--and both visits were lovely. This is the perfect place for homesick former New Yorkers like me--it feels like being home again. The decor is homey and fun, and it's a little like staying in someone's cool, spacious apartment. Plus there's the delicious breakfast. I... More

We spent only one night at 3B in the summer of 2014 - but we are dying to get back. The team of artists running the B&B are so warm and thoughtful. The rooms are perfect. The location blocks away from fantastic restaurants in Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens adn Boerum Hill. If the weather's nice, you can walk all the... More

There's so much to love about 3B - the great concept behind it, the lovely people who operate it, the scrumptious breakfasts, the comfortable bed, the other guests you meet there and the brilliant location just one block from the Jay Street-Metrotech subway. The 3 flights of stairs and the urban street noise at night may not be for everyone.... More
