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.


We offer special long term rates to students who are doing internships or taking classes in New York City. Please contact us for more information. Please fill out the application and we will be in touch with you.


We offer discounted or free stays for our work exchange applicants. To apply please fill out our application.


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.


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 you think you will be more than 2 hours delayed, please notify us as soon as possible. Failure to do so will signal a no-show and can lead to the loss of your reservation to another traveler. 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.

If you want to CANCEL or CHANGE your reservation, you must notify us at least 3 DAYS BEFORE ARRIVAL, so that an alternate can be found to take your spot. We reserve the right to charge your credit card in full for cancellations made less than 3 days before arrival. ALL CHANGES MUST BE MADE IN WRITING.

We require a passport to check in. We cannot provide accommodation for NYS residents.
