We were a party of 6 (family and friends). It was really easy to arrange our stay at Maria and Jesus' house. Communication has always been simple and explanations to check-in were accurate. Location : - very quick access from Newark Airport (allow 60 USD for a cab or 12 USD/person with the train) - 3-minute walk from Journal Square Path station. From there it takes between 10 and 20 minutes to reach Manhattan (1 line to Herald Square, 1 line to World Trade Center). The house : - Ground floor : large space with kitchen and dining area / bathroom / laundry / backyard. Kitchen equipment is basic but largely enough for a short stay. - Second floor : living room / bathroom / extra bedding. This area can be split with a curtain and be used as an extra bedroom. - Third floor : 3 bedrooms (2 double and 1 single) / 1 bathroom The area : - very quiet : it is located in a small street with very light traffic - shops : 5-minute walk from the house, you can find groceries, butchers, small restaurants, cheap clothing, etc... Everything you need. Stores are much cheaper than in Manhattan or even Grove Street (trendy area of Jersey City). We highly recommend this property. It is our third stay in New York, and we realized that staying in Journal Square is cheaper than Manhattan, and you can reach many points of interest within a shorter time. Thanks to Maria and Jesus for the advices they gave us.
