It war a very nice stay! We felt really welcome in Yolanda's home! She saved the day for us by preparing coffee in the morning :)
We had some nice chats with her und would highly recommend to stay there!
Hi everyone, Yolanda and her family are so pretty. She tries to fulfill all wishes and ask when you are leaving the house, to be sure you have a coffee in the morning. Everything was clean and she was very endeavors that we have everything. The location of the house is near the metro (7 mins to walk) and with this metro Manhatten is reachable in 40 minutes. All in all, the cost-benefit ratio was perfect for us.
The host cancelled the booking.
Stayed at Yolanda’s for the second time. Would definitely recommend it as it feels like a second home to me know. The hosts are extremely welcoming and I will be sure to return soon.
This was our third time at her place. We really love NYC and Queens is one of our favorite places. Yolanda was very kind, as always, and her house is amazing. The region is safe and not far from Manhattan. Next time we visit NYC, we will stay there again! Thanks Yolanda!
Nice room with enough space for two people. Everything was clean. A lot of shops and restaurants nearby. I would stay again at Yolanda´s place.
This was a third time that we stayed at Yolanda's house and we loved it. She is very friendly and welcoming. The room is clean and has everything we need. The house is very close to the train station, the neighborhood is quiet and has shops, pharmacies and markets. When we return to NYC we would like to stay at Yolanda's house again. Thanks for everything Yolanda. See you soon!
Yolanda is an ideal host, very friendly and helpful. The house is located a few minutes from the shops and the train to Jamaica or Manhattan. Just around the corner is a lovely park if you want to go for a walk.
Notre hôte Yolanda était super, Rue tranquille proche arrêt de métro et bus. 25 minutes environ de Manhattan. Nous sommes restées une semaine. Chambre avec le confort nécessaire proche de la salle de bain. Je recommande si vous voulez passer une semaine à new York à moindre coût :)
My friend stayed at Yolanda's place and she said her stay was quite comfortable.
