This is a private room 5 minute walking distance to North Elizabeth train station which takes you to NYC in 25 minutes. There is a bus that takes you to NY Port Authority right on the corner of the block! The house is 5 minutes from Newark Airport.

The space

The room is very clean and very cozy. It can accommodate 1 person comfortably. It has a twin size bed, Armoire to hang clothe, Air Conditioner in the summer Heat in the winter, Flat Screen TV with cable, night stand with lamp, a work desk, and Strong Wi-Fi connection. Although this room has the bunk bed I do not have a ladder for the top bed. I will be able to provide a small step ladder to assist the person staying on the top bunk. (sorry for any inconvenience)

** note: you will be able to hear the sound of traffic because this room is not well insulated. But I can provide ear plugs if the sound will bother you. ** this is still a great deal ;).

Guest access

There are 2 shared bathrooms which are always clean and maintained daily. There is also a full kitchen you will have access to along with utensils, Pots and pans etc. I recommend the room for 1 person but willing to accommodate 2 once I get the ladder for the bed.

Interaction with guests

I'll be more than happy to help in any way. Especially Friday-Sunday since I have more time and will be close by. I'm only a phone call or text away and if there is anything I could do to make your stay more comfortable please don't hesitate to ask. I was born and raised in this area and know it very well.
**I am able to arrange pick ups and drop offs to and from Newark International Airport for a fee of $10.00 each way.
** This is much cheaper than what a regular taxi would charge which is around $20-25 one way. Best option would be Uber or Lyft, they charge $5-7 for the trip.

***If you are new to Uber use this code for a free ride up to $15! code: uberchristianveliz .

***If you are new to Lyft sign up and use this code for up to $50 worth of free rides! code: CHRISTIAN927170

But if you would like for me to arrange a ride for you let me know in advanced and I will set everything up.
**There are also other options such as taking the train From Newark International Airport to North Elizabeth Station or taking NJ Transit bus #62 from the Airport to the Bus Stop on the corner of Spring Street (US Highway 1&9) & North Avenue. This bus stop is 2 blocks away from my place.

Very good value for money and only costed us about $7 to get to Newark Airport to fly home via Uber, did the job we needed it to do but this particular room is only really a good idea for 1 night, or for children. The room was also extremely warm. Host wasn't there to greet us and we were told to ring the doorbell and somebody else would answer, however we rang several times to no avail - had to wait outside for 15 minutes before luckily somebody else who lived there arrived. There are lots of other rooms in this property so bare this in mind as the listing doesn't make it obvious. Wasn't an issue for us but might be an issue for you. Wifi information was incorrect, although host responded very quickly when I queried this and gave us a different one to connect to. Another note, the internet seemed slow and dropped out a few times despite the listing quoting it as a strong connection. Still had a satisfactory stay and i reiterate it is extremely good value for money, and there are restaurants within 50 yards of the property, as well as a convenience store.

Lovely place for a short stay. Very function and super hospitable. Christian was in touch the entire time. If you need to be near EWR then I'd highly recommend.

Got to the house quite late on the 31st august 2017. Was able to get picked up from the airport and could contact Christian easily and without any fuss.

I spent 3 nights at Christian's air Bnb prior to embarking on a road trip starting at Newark airport. I wanted somewhere that was right next to the airport but that also wouldn't take me ages to get into New York. Elizabeth north train station is 5 minutes from Christian's place and you can get a train into New York penn in 30 mins! I didn't meet Christian as he was out of the country but his parents were really nice and he even got his friend Benjamin to pick me up when I got lost! The property was very clean - it is kind of like a dorm situation, which I didn't actually realise before I got there, but it wasn't a problem at all. The traffic outside can be quite noisy but calms down between about 11.30pm and 6am, so not too bad earplugs help though. Would definitely recommend staying at Christian's if you have a flight to catch from Newark, or even if you're looking for somewhere affordable to stay with good links to NYC.

Superb location for an early flight out of Newark and great communication throughout. Was able to help us with a lift to the airport even at 3am! Would stay here again :)
