Where to start first . This place is very interesting in many ways but not in a possitive way. Yes , the place is close to Manhattan but paradoxically pretty difficult to get there . If you want to get there by public transportation , you need to change 3 times. From subway to path train and to lightrail or bus. Or you can also use the taxi (from Grove street it is around 7dollars + tips) In general if you want to get to the city it will cost you more than 50 min of travelling with public transportation. Area of this flat is as someone mentioned before veeeery sketchy even dangerous( after dark I will not recommend use of a public transportation to get to your address of staying , definitely taxi! ) We were even speaking to police officer who was paradoxically in charge of that district (Jersey city) and he warned us about this area, because of the drug violence – he literaly said this! We experienced some difficulties with the room also. There was a gap between the AC and window, therefore the second night came a little visitor(mouse). The gap was fixed just with the stiff paper. We cannot imagine how this room works in winter time, because it was relatively cold there. When we came into the appartment, there were no soap to wash hands with. We didn´t have any instructions, even the basics, how to get to appartment and so... Be aware of the american locks, mainly in this room, because you can easily get stuck in front of the room meanwhile your keys are inside of the room. Locks works here very differently from EU ones, so we recommend to take your keys with you even within the flat. When we were trying to contact Sylvia and discuss some matters about the appartment and surroundings, she promised she would come the next morning but she didn´t show up even contact us back. Consider your stay here.

-/- Enige reden om hier te verblijven voor ons was de prijs, daar achteraf wel spijt van want echt super goedkoop was het niet met 3 personen eigenlijk. We moesten voor onze dochter betalen als derde persoon maar die moest op een slaapbank slapen wat gewoon niet te doen was. Mega dun foam en dan waren maar 2 delen, onder hoofd was alleen houten onderkant bank! Kind van 8 jaar lag al hard, laat staan een volwassen persoon met overgewicht. Deze locatie moet of een goede slaapbank plaatsen die ook echt goed ligt of anders niet 3 personen rekenen.

-/- Verder waren de 2 bedden te kort voor ons beiden (mensen langer dan 1,75 mogelijk een issue). De matrassen waren ook kleiner dan de bedden zelf, dus de kussens vielen tussen matras en hoofdboord in. We moesten daar dekens tussenproppen zodat onze kussen konden blijven liggen.

-/- Het is niet alleen een mixed buurt (daar heb ik echt geen problemen mee) maar het is echt op de rand van een achterbuurt. Gangs hingen op de hoeken, overal afval op straat, huizen vervallen en 1 van de voordeursloten wat opergebroken/eraf zodat er maar 1 slot was (dat andere bezoekers soms vergaten op slot te doen. Het heeft ertoe geleid dat ik me niet echt veilig voelde de 1e nacht (helemaal omdat we onze dochter meehadden. Ik had hier vooraf nog na gevraagd ivm met een aantal reviews en de verhuurder had me verzekerd dat het veilig was etc. Maar in dit geval had ze beter kunnen zeggen dat we wat anders konden zoeken in andere buurt.

-/- Ruimte naast airco was afgezet met karton ivm hout waardoor het bij een onweersbui half open lag. Dat is ook evt de reden geweest waardoor we bij de 2e nacht wakker werden van 2 muizen in de kamer! De 3e nacht hebben we airco hard aangelaten voor het lawaai.

-/- Liberty State Park is echt verder lopen dan wat gezegd wordt, tot aan de ferry is het 40 minuten lopen. Heen de 1e dag gedaan, maar terug een taxi moeten nemen gewoon.

-/- Matrassen lagen voor ons beiden niet lekker, de veren kraakten bij omdraaien en soms werd je wakker in de nacht omdat een veer sprong.

+ Huiskamer, keuken en badkamer waren prima.

+ Beddengoed en handdoeken waren schoon en fris.

+ Ook al is het verder, de ferry vanaf Liberty State park is echt een aanrader om naar Manhattan te gaan. USD 7,- per persoon voor enkele reis. Wel parkeren daar ipv lopen als tip, want parkeren is maar USD 7,- voor een dag. Uitzicht vanaf daar super.

+ Het is goedkoper dan NYC, dus als je alles voor lief neemt zeker een optie.

L'appartement est situé à 25 min à pied du PATH qui vous dépose au pied de la Freedom Tower. La chambre louée était très bien entretenue, tout comme la salle de bain. Nous n'avons manqué de rien. Le coin salon-cuisine commun aux plusieurs chambres nous a permis de faire connaissance avec d'autres hôtes.

We stayed for two weeks in this room.
The area at first, seemed a bit sketchy but after talking to someone who's been living there for over 3 month, everything was great.
Nothing happened to us (don't judge the neighborhood just by the looks :) ).

The room and the house in general are really cool and you have everything you need (bathroom, nice kitchen, living room, AC).

Also going to the city is pretty easy, it takes you about 25min with the LightRail and the PATH from Exchange Place.

I would totally recommend it to everyone who is looking for a affordable place to stay while doing a NYC trip.

I was 6 days in New York and have lived in that time in the house of Sylwia. The accommodation itself was top. Comfortable beds, large living room with kitchen and two bathrooms furnished reasonable. There were towels also by the hostess, as free wireless. Bursts is (2x double bed rooms, 1xEinbettzimmer) for 5 people. Sylwia is and when guests to meet only on Monday departures on. But what not disturbing, because then you have more privacy. What should be the narrow, is the fact that sound insulation in the construction of the house was probably a foreign word. If there are more guests in the apartment over it, it can be night and morning sometimes be a bit louder as each step sounds like a herd of zebras. And toilet paper you should buy in any case on the first day, as the funny way will not be restocked. Smaller kiosks are just around the corner, but an all too many choices should not be expected. American lifestyle up.

Very nice and clean apartment. After 5min walk on Liberdy you reach the Light Rail State Park. In Newport, the path change and continue until the 33th. Even you are in Manhattan. Sylwia is very nice. She has even picked me up from the airport. Will certainly come back again.

very nice apartment - very friendly and reliable host - costs reasonable - absolutely recommendable!
It's just been a pleasure to stay there...
I recommend to use google.maps for getting out and in house, just click the public transportation button and you'll get a choice of all bus stations around the door. Bus connections are quite reliable...
