Just 15 min train ride to new york Penn station. Also close to ewr airport. Great ppl. Comfortable stay. Made my trip easy on my budget. Since a hotel in the city could be expensive. We decided to stay at this guest house. The kitchen was a plus. We were able to prepare breakfast and some light meals. The train station is at few steps from the house. Coming back in the middle of the night was not an issue. We are coming back with friends. Also the property manager gave us useful information. He is very friendly.
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 NYC, but we were very lucky. The location is awesome-you get to Manhatan by train in couple of mins. The price is unmatched. At the time we were staying there, there were no more guests, so we had all house for us. And George and his family were very very neat and helpful. So I can only recommend his places and hopefully one day we get back :-)
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... the owner's & staff's charm more than make up for the decor. Lonnie, the owner, was very helpful and gave us lots of tips on how to get from place A to B, picked us up at the Newark airport and much more. Thank you Lonnie & family for a remarkable holiday.... New Years Eve in Time Square. p.s. The view comes if you are fortunate enough to book the "suite" which has a balcony.
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 the airport.
