As always, friendly, uncomplicated, relaxed and a clean accommodation. Thanks Sylwia!
The house was clean and it was comfortable inside, however the area had an unsafe feeling at night, unfortunately. Also there was no t.v. , which would have been nice in the evenings.
There is plenty of room to cook if need be as well.
Spacious room, airco working fine, kitchen pretty well equiped. Location relatively close to light rail (appr. 10 minutes walking), although it takes more than 30 min. to get to Manhattan is you take lightrail and PATH.
Neighbourhood seems a bit poor at the first sight, but we never had any trouble and never felt unsafe.
The lock of our room was broken, after phoning with Sylwia, she sent someone to fix it and afterwards, it worked fine.
I sent a mail weeks before, to ask about information on the keys and time of arrival. A bit unhandy was the fact that I only got that information some hours before getting there, by mail. As a tourist, I do not always have the option of being online when I'm abroad.
All in all, I think it is a good price you pay for the location and room.
Wenn man nicht das Budget für eine Unterkunft in Manhattan hat, dann ist new Jersey aufjedenfall eine Alternative! Ich als Frau würde in der Gegend nach Sonnenuntergang nicht allein rumlaufen ;-)
Wir hatten anfangs Probleme mit der Schlüsselübergabe, aber dann hat es doch gut geklappt. Die Wohnung ist sehr schön, in der Küche kann man gut überleben auch wenn man mit der Ausstattung keine Menüs kochen kann. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gibt es wenige, wenn man mit dem Auto unterwegs ist, sollte man auf der Fahrt dorthin bereits an einem Supermarkt anhalten. Hätten wir allerdings vorher gewusst wie lange wir nach Manhatten fahren und jedesmal für die Fahrt zahlen, hätten wir vielleicht doch eine etwas teurere Wohnung auf der anderen Seite des Hudsonriver genommen. Die Nachbarschaft ist gewöhnungsbedürftig, aber wir haben uns immer sicher gefühlt.
it was very excellent
Staying in the house was a great experience. The rooms were stocked with everything you might need.
Getting to Manhattan was quite easy once I had learned about the transportation opportunities from my host, and the area itself is very quiet and friendly.
I will recommend staying here for anyone visiting New Jersey and New York.
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.
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.
Ich war 6 Tage in New York und habe in dieser Zeit in dem Haus von Sylwia gewohnt. Die Unterkunft an sich war Top. Gemütliche Betten, ein großes Wohnzimmer mit Küche und zwei vernünftig eingerichtete Badezimmer. Handtücher gab es auch von der Gastgeberin, so wie freies W LAN. Platzt ist für insgesamt 5 Leute (2x Doppelbettzimmer, 1xEinbettzimmer). Sylwia ist eigentlich nur Montags und wenn Gäste Abreisen an zu treffen. Was aber nicht weiter stört, da man dann mehr Privatssphäre hat. Was zu beimengen ist, ist die Tatsache, dass Trittschalldämmung beim Bau des Hauses wohl ein Fremdwort war. Sind noch weiter Gäste in der Wohnung drüber, kann es nachts und morgens auch mal etwas lauter werden, da sich jeder Schritt anhört wie eine Herde Zebras. Und Klopapier sollte man sich auf jeden fall am ersten Tag kaufen, da die komischer Weise nicht nachgeliefert wird. Kleinere Kioske sind direkt um die Ecke, aber eine All zu große Auswahl sollte man nicht erwarten. American Lifestyle eben.
