About NYC Guesthouse

Cosy guesthouse in Brooklyn catering mostly to students and travelers. Stunning rooms, great location and cheap rates ... We are one block away from the NYC Marathon route.

Voted Best Atmosphere by Hostelbookers customers in June 2013. PLEASE READ everything BEFORE booking. You will need a valid passport or a non NY state ID.

NYC Guesthouse was founded by 2 Pratt students. They dreamed to create a quirky guesthouse that would truly feel like a home away from home. We have a cat.

CHECK-INS:

We arrange check-ins from 11am to 11 pm. However, you MUST notify us of your expected arrival time, as we do not have staff around the clock. We understand hours may change, so please notify us as soon as possible if there are changes in your arrival time and you do not wish to lose your spot.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

We will add an administrative turnover fee of $4.95 if you stay less than 5 nights with us. This is to cover sheet-rental and general turnover costs.

Check-ins after 11pm can ONLY be arranged by special request (e-mail or telephone at least 2 nights before), and incur a late fee per booking of:

$27.95 - 11pm - 1am

$37.95 -after 1am

If your reservation is forfeited, but you arrive more than 2 hours late, all efforts will be made to accommodate you, but it may be in a different room, with different services and prices. Any alternative accommodation will be at the prevailing rate, which may be more than what you booked on your forfeited reservation.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

THEY CANCELED MY STAY BEFORE 1 DAY OF ARRIVAL. So I ended up sleeping on street one night (thank you occupy wall street demonstrators!) before finding a new place. This almost ruined my trip as you may understand. Maybe the place is good, but you just DON'T do this for travelers.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I had a GREAT time there, more than I expected! Everyone there is so nice and lots of them think this place is kind of special. It's smaller than I thought, but it's like A COMMUNE also because of that. Joseph treats everybody like a friend instead of a customer, super nice guy. The bathroom is so brand-new. Everyone had a chat in the front door all night and it's such a great time. I can assure you it's a pretty safe place. Miss you guys so much! Can't wait to get back.
