I see different pics of the house, but it is the same location we visited and I remember George, and that he runs more than one guest house on this street, so I am sure this is the place where we stayed with my friend. I must say, we found this place in last minute, just before our trip to... More

This is the perfect place to stay when visiting NYC. A 15 minute walk gets you to the PATH station and then only a few minutes into NYC and all there is to see. The rooms are as others have said... funky decor.... but very clean. No decorating since the 1980's but who cares.... you are in New York. And...... More

My boyfriend and i stayed here on our trip to america in june 2014. This little hostel was almost perfect. Cute decor and the owner was very helpful. Had everything we needed and great location for transport into new york. The only negative was that it was very warm and aircon wasn't the greatest.

I loved this place with its funky decor, very affordable rates, and quirky rooms. George, the innkeeper, was so very kind to wait for us until very late when our connections to Newark were delayed. Good Central American food in easy walking distance, and a short taxi ride over to hip hangouts in the Newark's stylish Ironbound District and to... More

Needs a modern makeover and a proper housekeeping staff. the location is unsafe and no security systems installed. Nervous to even let my kids sleep at this dump. The beds were comfy, the towels were clean, but the receptionist was unfriendly. They could do better than this !!!!

The rooms were unclean, staff very rigid and unfriendly with rude attitude, waiting for a long time for room service. I knew I should not have stayed at this location, It took a beating out of my pocket and will never make the same mistake twice. Location unsafe and no security systems installed. Please understand hospitality and all it's factors... More

My best friend and I were in town for a concert. We booked the stay last minute- like... the morning-of (we called and booked a room at 9am and we arrived at 12:45pm)! George, the inn keeper, was very nice. During our journey down (from CT, so not too far) George called us and asked if we were still traveling,... More

So I want to be as objective as possible so I will list the positive and negative attributes of this "bed and breakfast." First, however, I would like to state that you shouldn't get tricked. Before paying and agreeing to stay ask George to show you 1) a functioning microwave; 2) functioning heat-- look for a leak in the front... More

I stayed here for 9 days in March to visit New York City. I think this was an awesome place to stay! This is kind of a cross between a bed & breakfast and a vacation rental. The owners meet you at the beginning of your stay, and come back every day or two to tidy up the place. They... More

We spent six days at this location. The house is very close to the trains to Manhattan and only takes 15 min to Madison Sq. Garden. The place is safe and lighted at night.
