A great place for students, we are close to most colleges! This is one of the best neighborhoods in the N.Y. city, Williamsburg! We offer a sun-filled room, in a newly renovated artist's loft, with a big kitchen and open plan living area, We are steps away from Domino Park, a beautiful park on the East River with skyline views of Manhattan (Empire State Building, etc.). The neighborhood is centrally located with many restaurants, movie theaters, music venues,, etc. This area is great for young people. We are native New Yorker's who can help you learn your way around.

The loft is in an industrial building that was converted in the 1970's, the exterior is still is an active graffiti site! Please note- the space has a 2 flight walk-up. The neighborhood is very safe and lively.

Subway- L train- one stop from Manhattan, Ferry is a few blocks away.

How do I book?

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.
