The lodge and the location:
A relaxed, quiet, and fun atmosphere in what's been voted of the best neighborhoods in new york. Private rooms offer a lovely, quiet place to recoup after a long day of sightseeing, before heading out again to explore the local neighborhood's nightlife.
15 minutes to manhattan, 2 blocks from a park, and surrounded by cafes, galleries, bars, and restaurants. The G Nassau ave subway is outside the front door and the L bedford ave subway is 10 blocks away. Easy access to all airports, especially Laguardia and JFK.
The Greenpoint Lodge is in a private home and very well-maintained. It is clean, quiet, friendly, and safe. Rooms are fully cleaned between each guest and sheets and towels are all high quality organic cotton. All mattresses are firm and comfortable, and an assortment of different pillows are provided.
The lodge is a 'turn-key' rental, meaning there is not a full-time staff. We are always reachable by phone or email for any questions, or requests. There is an info pack in each room with questions answered, neighborhood info, and restaurant recommendations. If you are looking for a place with a full time staff, this isn't for you. If you want a private, cozy, comfortable and relaxed atmosphere where you can feel at home without anyone bugging you, then this is the place for you! And we are always available by phone, text or email if you need anything!
There are a total of 6 rooms, 1 living room, 2 bathrooms and 2 kitchens, fully stocked with all the pots, pans, and dishes you might need. All sheets and towels are provided as well as coffee and a coffee maker, cable tv, wifi, and a computer.
There is a small boutique spa and hair salon on the ground floor, so if you need to unwind or want a great new york hairdo just let us know!!
Room rates on hw are listed per person, but fee for room is flat rate at total occupancy. Since all rooms are double occupancy this means they are all double the per-person rate.
There is a $20/person one-time cleaning fee. This applies for each room you rent, if you switch rooms. The longer you rent, the cheaper it becomes!
Important - read all room descriptions before booking! - i have tried to make my listing work within the booking engine/hostelworld.com configuration. Where hostelworld says '4 bed' it means it sleeps up to 4 people maximum - if you share beds! Please check the room listing to see exactly how many beds and what size they are. Hostelworld lists the price per person, but all prices are for the max number of people for each unit, regardless of number of people there will be. Thanks! (ie. A 2-bed listed at $36/night is really $72/night whether it is 1-2 people). All deposits are paid directly to hostelworld.com and are nonrefundable unless you purchase their cancellation protection. This only covers your deposit to hostel world, and not our cancellation fee.
