I am chill, but definitely no smoking inside. Just don't be messy or a mean person. No negative energy in the house. Ha! If you come when my daughter is here, just don't be super loud.

We stayed for 4 nights and found Jacob friendly and easy going which, made for a nice atmosphere in his apartment. The apartment is close to the subway and walkable distance to central park. Overall we were happy with the room and apartment and we enjoyed some chats with Jacob about politics and putting the world to rights :)

Jacob was a very welcoming and relaxed host. The apartment is full of interesting art and is spacious.The room was clean, large with plenty of storage. It is really close to the subway for downtown (takes about 15 - 25 mins to get to 42st, depending on which train) and convenient for the airport bus to La Guardia. The neighbourhood is lively and people are friendly. I felt safe there. It is definitely an urban area, but there is a park across the road and a tree outside the room window, giving a green feel.

We really enjoyed our stay. Jacob was great, really helpful and friendly. He was away the night we arrived so he had a friend let us in and show us round even though we arrived pretty late. The room is nice and big and private, and we felt very welcome to use the kitchen, etc. Location is really good. You're at the subway in 5 mins and then it's a short ride downtown, and it was easy to get to La Guardia and JFK.

My girlfriend and I spent 16 nights in Jacob's hospitality and were so happy we chose to stay here. From day one we were greeted at the front door after being delayed by flights at 11pm and given a guided tour of the apartment, which is ideally located just 3 minutes walk from the 125st subway entrance at 127th street. There's also two well stocked delis nearby for all your needs in a very quiet area of the neighbourhood. The room was immaculate and spacious, the king size bed was perhaps the comfiest bed I've ever slept in, and the AC unit rescued us both from some very warm nights! The bathroom and kitchen were kept clean and were made welcome to use any of the facilities available, with fresh towels upon request. Jacob was an absolute gentleman and a very warm hearted host the entire time and could not have been a nicer person. I really do hope the next time we come back to New York that we can stay again so that we know we are getting one of the best hosts in New York City. Enjoy the treats we left as a thank you and we hope to see you again!

Jacob and his daughter were great hosts, very hospitable! Jacob made us feel at home right away by showing us round the entire apartment and making us a coffee. He always made sure we were ok and always checked to see if we ever needed anything - we didn't because his apartment had it all. The space (both room and apartment) was surreal and the bed super comfortable! Also the location is fantastic - the express train is right on your doorstep and will have you in Times Square & other parts of the city in no time! If you're planning a trip to NYC, forget hotels and save yourself some money - stay at Jacob's. Not only is it more affordable, it also comes with the real experience of what it's like to live like a local. Thanks for having us :)

We spent 6days in Jacob's house. Perfect localization to visit New York as it's localized near an Express subway station which enable quick displacement to downtown Manhattan.

I am a pretty easy going guy. I have lived in Harlem for 10 years. I love the energy and diversity. Want-to-be creative. A little bit of a health nut. Seeker of truth. I love meeting new people. I have a two year old daughter whom I love more than I thought possible. Stil…
