|Address||Eldert Street, 11237 Brooklyn, United States|
|Property type||Private room|
|Acceptance rate||< 50%|

|Calendar updated||A month ago|
The building is the only one of its kind in Brooklyn. The 24-hour roof deck is equipped with lounge chairs and a hot tub. We have a grill you can bring up if you'd like to cook dinner and look at the Manhattan skyline. There is a heated indoor pool. There is also a gym with weights, cardio machines and a punching bag, laundry in the building, a 24-hour dry sauna and a game room with foosball, a pool table and a TV.
The apartment itself is a three bedroom, hardwood floor loft. We sleep in the loft upstairs, so you have the run of the living room kitchen and downstairs bedrooms. The kitchen is completely stocked as far as cooking goes and available to you. There is wireless internet. The bathroom has a shower and whirlpool tub.
Your room has lots of light, a closet and a queen bed with down blankets. We can add a sofa bed for a third person in your room. It does make it a little crowded, but works if you have a budget. If you'd like more space for a third person, check out our listing for two rooms.
We provide coffee and tea and have snacks/pastries for sharing from time to time.
We are both New Yorkers. We know the city inside and out. We can recommend restaurants and shows and help with transit. There is a resident cat. He is very friendly, but if you have a cat allergy, this is not the place for you.
The neighborhood is a safe, residential Brooklyn neighborhood with lots of kids. Block parties and open fire hydrants are common in the summer. There is some good restaurants, including a fabulous pizza place nearby, but the real draw is that for a fraction of what you'd pay in a hotel, you can have a coffee while seeing the sun come up over the skyline, go for a swim, go to the sauna and be in Manhattan all before 10AM.
We provide towels, sheets, coffee, and hospitality, but if you are doing this for the first time, please remember this is not a hotel. This is our home and this is a shared space. We love to talk about the city and are happy to answer any and all questions and we keep the common areas clean (kitchen, bathroom, etc.). But we also use the kitchen and dining space and expect it to be shared.
- Please do all your dishes after you use them. If you have questions about the dishwasher, we can show you.
- We like to go out at night, but we make sure not to bring the party home. Please do the same.
- We do not charge cleaning fees or late check-in fees. If you arrive late, it is fine, just make sure you keep in contact with us. We work erratic hours and there is sometimes a chance you may have to pick up the keys at the store or the restaurant nearby.
- Please be nice to the cat :)
- If you have any problems at all with us or the place, please be direct and address those concerns during your stay. It will help your experience and help us be better hosts. We can always work something out!

Ben and Shira...you have an awesome xat, we call him Elwood, we love him. We have a great time with you, you are so friendly and help für with good advance for NY. You made our stay in Big Apple perfect. When we come back to NY we would like to stay in your Apartment
Ben and Shira are absolutely nice and uncomplicated hosts. You are rarely at home, but are always with words and deeds aside. Breakfast stood ready coffee and donuts. The apartment is nicely located, not too far away from Manhattan. Everything is clean and well maintained, the house has much to offer !! Unfortunately we could not use the hot tub on the roof because it was always busy. Those lucky enough to be on time and above the first is in the pool, it can definitely enjoy all around. What could be more beautiful at night than in warm 28 degrees to take a bath on the roofs of Brooklyn facing Manhattan !?
Thanks Ben and Shira! And of course Cat, for their nice chat =) early in the morning the first to get into the room as soon as the door opens. In the evening, the last one that gets sent out from the room ;-)
Ben und Shira sind absolut nette und unkomplizierte Gastgeber. Sie sind selten zu Hause, stehen aber immer mit Rat und Tat zur Seite. Früh standen Kaffee und Donuts bereit. Die Wohnung ist schön gelegen, nicht zu weit weg von Manhattan. Alles ist sauber und gepflegt, das Wohnhaus hat vieles zu bieten!! Leider konnten wir den Whirlpool auf dem Dach nicht nutzen, da es immer besetzt war. Wer das Glück hat rechtzeitig oben zu sein und erster im Pool ist, kann es bestimmt rundum genießen. Was gibt es nachts schöneres als bei warmen 28°Grad ein Bad über den Dächern Brooklyns mit Blick auf Manhattan zu nehmen!?
Danke Ben und Shira! Und natürlich Cat, für ihre nette Unterhaltung =) früh morgens die erste, die ins Zimmer kommt, sobald die Tür auf geht. Abends die letzte, die aus dem Zimmer rausgeschickt wird ;-)
First of all every thing was like in the contract, we can not say that the contract was not fullfilled. For the price ( but it's New York) the room was small, not cleaned. The wirlpool was on the roofdeck and the skyline and the sunsets beautiful.Every morning we maked coffee and we could put some stuff in the frigidaire. Usually, we picknicked in the evening on the roofdeck. The neiboorhood and the acessibility is good and safe, the MTA is just 300 meters away.So our evaluation is not entirly positive, but also not totaly negative.
It was our first stay with Wimdu.
Ben and Shira are great hosts.
We even stayed a threesome with you. For our daughter an air mattress should serve as Scglafplatz.
Ben has her then but made short the living room or study available.
The keys in Manhattan worked without problems. Ben's only been around 5 clock in the morning from work to home. Only Shira was back shortly after midnight.
Was a strange feeling to move all alone through a strange apartment.
The nameless cat (Maincoon) was without any problems.
The apartment has very high ceilings. Ben and Shira sleep on a type 2 level above the kitchen and the small bathroom.
The apartment appears to be larger than it is in the photos.
Our rental car we could easily park on the street.
The apartment is in Brooklyn, we also felt safe at night us. To the metro you walk 5 minutes walk.
Although Ben and Shira were seldom at home, they stood us at any time with advice and practical help.
In the morning there was fresh coffee and bagels for us.
WiFi works flawlessly. The room is big enough for 2 people. The bed (and the mattress) squeak quite noisy, but that did not bother us. At night it is very quiet for New York. We did not need
The view from the rooftop terrace is great.
Our conclusion: Anyone looking for a budget accommodation with completely unproblematic property owners in New York, is the right place for Ben Sira and !!!
Thank you Ben and Shira
Es war unser 1. Aufenthalt mit wimdu.
Ben und Shira sind tolle Gastgeber.
Wir haben sogar zu dritt bei Ihnen übernachtet. Für unsere Tochter sollte eine Luftmatratze als Scglafplatz dienen.
Ben hat ihr dann aber kurzfristig das Wohn- bzw. Arbeitszimmer zur Verfügung gestellt.
Die Schlüsselübergabe in Manhattan hat problemlos geklappt. Ben ist erst gegen 5 Uhr morgens von der Arbeit nach Hause gekommen. Nur Shira war schon kurz nach Mitternacht zurück.
War schon ein komisches Gefühl, sich völlig allein durch eine fremde Wohnung zu bewegen.
Die namenlose Katze (Maincoon)war völlig problemlos.
Die Wohnung hat sehr hohe Decken. Ben und Shira schlafen auf einer Art 2. Ebene über der Küche und dem kleinen Bad.
Die Wohnung erscheint auf den Fotos größer als sie ist.
Unseren Mietwagen konnten wir problemlos auf der Straße parken.
Die Wohnung ist in Brooklyn, wir haben uns auch abends sicher gefühlt. Bis zur Metro läuft man 5 Minuten zu Fuß.
Obwohl Ben und Shira wenig zu Hause waren, standen sie uns jederzeit mit Rat und Tat zur Seite.
Morgens gab es frischen Kaffee und Bagels für uns.
WLAN funktioniert einwandfrei. Das Zimmer ist für 2 Personen ausreichend groß. Das Bett (bzw. die Matratze) quietsch recht laut, hat uns aber nicht weiter gestört. Nachts ist es für New York sehr leise. Wir brauchten keine
Der Blick von der Dachterrasse ist toll.
Unser Fazit: Wer eine günstige Unterkunft mit völlig unproblematischen Vermietern in New York sucht, ist bei Ben und Sira genau richtig!!!
Thank you Ben and Shira
the guest and 'was very kind and the roofdeck and' fantastic
l'ospite e' stato molto gentile e il roofdeck e' fantastico
We had a great time in NY! Ben and Shira are very nice and friendly, we had a lot of fun with them... and their lovely cat! We got a lot of information and very good tips from Ben and Shira about good restaurants/bars and locations in NY!
The apartmens is great, our room was big enough and we could use the kitchen, the pool and the roofdeck with its amazing view! The neighbourhood is safe, the subway is next to the apartment. We had perfect holidays! Thank you Ben and Shira!
Ben and Shira are awesome!! They make us feeling like we were in our own house! The house is great!!! Pool, sauna and jacuzzi!!! They let us the house keys since the first minute! I recomend bens and shira house for everybody who wants to know something diferent in NY. :) thanks a lot!!

Thanks a lot to Benjamin and Shira for letting us stay at their apartment. They are very friendly and uncomplicated hosts. We had a great time in Brooklyn and by using the Metro it`s no problem to get to Manhattan. The terrace at the roof is very nice and we had fun playing pool billard several times.
