The lodge and the location:
Let greenpoint lodge be your home away from home. A relaxed, quiet, and fun atmosphere in what's been voted of the best neighborhoods in new york. Private rooms and apartments 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. Apartments 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. The house manager is on site for a few hours most days, and 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 any creepy staff bugging you, then this is the place for you! And we are always available by phone, text or email if you need anything!
Each apartment has it's own bathroom and kitchen, 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 laundry machines.
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
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.

Access: there is self check-in with a keypad entry. Once you have made your booking hostelworld will send you a confirmation - in the hostel conditions will be included the basic check in instructions along with the code. We will also send you an email with the entry code and full check-in instructions before you arrive. You will not be able to enter without this code. So it is absolutely imperative that you check your email and bring it with you. No curfew - you can arrive anytime and not have to worry about whether someone is there to let you in.
Check-in is 3pm and check-out is noon. If you need to arrive early or leave late - there is an area set aside in the basement for free self-service bag drop.
Cancellation policy: because i am a small, boutique hostel, late cancellations are very harmful to my business. For this reason there is a 50% cancellation fee two weeks before the start of the reservation, and 100% cancellation fee one week before. I will do everything within my power to secure a reservation for the cancelled period and refund whatever percentage i have been able to cover
NB - Cancellation policy: because i am a small, boutique hostel, late cancellations are very harmful to my business. Our cancelation is different from that of Hostel world's as the cancellation protection only protects the deposit that you paid to them, not me. For this reason there is a 50% cancellation fee two weeks before the start of the reservation, and 100% cancellation fee one week before. I will do everything within my power to secure a reservation for the cancelled period and refund whatever percentage i have been able to cover

The door to your room will be open and the keys will be inside the room.
There is no 'front desk' at the Lodge. It is a private home, with only five units and all units are what is considered 'turn key'. Therefore, you absolutely MUST BRING THE ABOVE CODE to get in and you must follow the directions above to find your room.
MANAGER DEBRA'S PHONE NUMBER: (347) 756-5226.
If I do not answer my phone, please leave a message telling me what room or apartment you are staying in. You may also text or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Calling or texting is the faster way to get in touch!
Official Check-In time is after 3:00 pm (1500 hrs.)
Check-Out is by 12:00 pm (1200 hrs).
There is a free bag drop in the basement for early arrivals or late departures
In your room you will find a detailed information pack that will help you settle in, get around the city, find places to eat and drink, and so on. Here is a copy of that packet that you may want to print before you leave home:
You can also find a copy of the packet, plus maps, directions, and neighborhood info at www.greenpointlodge.com/info-contact.html
We only accept payment in cash. There are many ATM's by the lodge if you need of them. Please put your money in the payment envelope provided and follow instructions for depositing it in a secure payment box. You will be provided with a receipt after your payment is processed. PLEASE PAY WITHIN 24 HOURS OF ARRIVING SO I DON'T HAVE TO TRACK YOU DOWN. Our rates are low because I keep everything as self service as possible.
BAG DROP FOR EARLY OR LATE CHECK-IN: BAGS MUST BE TAKEN TO THE BASEMENT! The entry to the basement is at the end of the ground floor hallway. There is a designated storage area just to the left of the bottom of the stairs. Look for the taped area on the floor. We are not responsible for items left in the bag storage area, though nothing has ever been stolen or tampered with. Please be sure not to block the passage to the front room of the basement or the laundry area.
I highly recommend packing lightly or at least using a couple of small suitcases rather than a single large one. The stairs here are narrow and New York City is not easy to navigate with a big suitcase. There are stairs everywhere! Save room to bring your shopping home!
Basic directions to and from the airports are listed in the Info. Pack (see above) or on the website- www.greenpointlodge.com. Be advised that transfers between subways or between subway and bus often involve many staircases.
What to Bring With You
All rooms are equipped with hairdryers, clock radios, and televisions. We also provide towels for guests, so you do not need to bring your own. Please be sure to bring adapters/converters for your electronics if you are visiting from outside of the U.S. as we do not provide them. If you forget to bring them, there is a Radio Shack less than 1 block away where you can purchase them. Most drug stores also carry them.
Mandatory Cleaning Fee
There is a $20/person cleaning fee. Please leave cash in the envelope on the table in your apartment when you check out. If you do not, it will be charged to the credit card used to make the reservation, plus a $20 processing fee. The cleaning staff works very hard and appreciates tips as well, especially if you leave a mess! There is a separate envelope for cleaning tips. Thanks for helping us keep the apartments clean!
Cancellations within two weeks of the start of the reservation are subject to a 50% cancellation fee. Cancellations within 1 week are subject to 100% cancellation fee. I will do whatever I can to secure a new reservation and refund the percentage recouped. For reservations made through HostelWorld.com the deposit is non-refundable unless you purchased their cancellation protection. If you would like to make a change in your reservation and you booked through hostelworld or one of their affiliates, please make the changes through their site- though you can always ask me if you have questions about availability.
