I stayed in the 3B B&B in August 2011 for 9 nights in the bunk room. Right from the beginning on i had a good feel, since all the rooms and the interior are very warm and welcoming and very unique. It´s definitely not a common B&B place, it´s like staying in your own home. I really enjoyed the creativity in the whole appartement and the bunch of open and relaxed young people around who run this appartement. Since i stayed for a longer time here i had some nice conversations with them, also joined a party in their appartment which is located downstairs of the B&B. Open door idea, which makes it easy to find help whenever you need it.
I was also very lucky with the people in the shared bunk room. All of us stayed for almost the same time, so we met a lot of nights in the kitchen area to have drinks or watched a movie. Never had any problem to hang around the common area either during the day or the night. Also met a lot of other very nice people from the other rooms at breakfast in the morning, which is a treat, indeed! Definitely made friends here.
Since it was my 5th visit in NY already i was very fine with the location in Brooklyn. Gave me the opportunity to explore Brooklyn and Williamsburg more easily, also very easy to get the JKF airport or coney island. The subway just around the corner takes you to Manhattan in about 15-20mins depends on where you go, it´s very convenient. Brooklyn Bridge and BB Park just in 10 minutes walking distance!
This stay at the B&B definitely made my visit in NY to one of the best i ever had. Will definitely stay there again and always recommend it to all young travellers who want to have a unique and comfortable stay for even lower price than a lot of ny hostels would offer.
