Don't let the polarised reviews out you off from booking here. Yvette the host has very straight forward rules. You can tell upon meeting her that she is house proud, extremely clean and asks for nothing but respect of her property. Myself and my girlfriend stayed here for four nights and had an amazing time. Yvette gave us fantastic recommendations...

Don't let the other reviews fool you. This place is managed by one woman and this is how it feels. If you come to vacation, don't get to here. It isn't clean, isn't comfort, located in a very far place from center. The location isn't safe in night. You pay very much for nothing.

They were thrown out for doing drugs on the premises at 1AM. This is a family owned place and we will not tolerate this nonsense.

A friend and me stayed for a weekend. We wasn't told that the check out was at eleven. When we tried to check out around 12:00 pm, but she wasn't at the hostel. We had to wait for her, and couldn't get a train for the airport but a taxi ( much more expensive). She didn't returned back the whole...

Everything is put in writing prior to arrival and I also mention it in my greeting. 11:00AM Check out. They went out early and returned at 12:25PM then instead of apologizing blamed me for it.. If they took a cab it was because they were late. They also left the kitchen dirty and there is a sign asking that you...

Really enjoyed staying here last summer. I came very early but the hostess was really kind to let me leave my bags there beforehand. She and her sister were super friendly and helped me find some of the best places in New York! It's at an ideal location close to a few Metro (and one train) stations. One of the...

A great guesthouse in Harlem. Yvette is such a nice owner and will fill your head with great places to eat and stories about the area. It's located on a beautiful street and the house is an amazing brownstone. Close to the 125th subway, where you are one express stop from Midtown and there are lots of great restaurants nearby,...

Perfect location, close to the subway station and restaurants. Really nice area, the guest house is located on a very quiet street, perfect to get a good night sleep after exploring the city all day. The owner is so nice and helpful. We asked if we could drop our bags early in the morning (8am) and, to our surprise, the...

Really good value for money, can't find better in New York, and a convenient location, near the subway (A train). Really comfortable bed too. Slight hiccup with the wifi occasionally, which seemed to be a little temperamental. Very helpful owner too with lots of good tips for staying in the city. Had a clean bathroom too which is always good!
