It's a great opportunity to stay very close to the world-famous New York City, and come back home leaving the craziness behind to get a good night's sleep! Also, having guests from different countries in our house makes it a very enjoyable environment!
Volunteers will be treated like family! I try my best to make our guests feel like home, even if they are visiting for one night only. Volunteers will be staying with us longer, so they will become a part of my family!
Sabrina's house became a home to me, she is an amazing host, always cheerful, very caring and understanding.
I had the chance to practice my Portuguese which was surprisingly nice!
The work load and hours are more than fair and the accommodation very comfortable.
The house is very close to the train station which will get you to Manhattan in less than 30mins.

Sabrina is a great person and her house is perfect for those who search a great environment, it's an Airbnb hostel style, very well localized, very clean (you'll help make sure of it lol) and with great guests. I'd recommend anyone who's willing to try something new (like me) or already has experience cleaning (it will help but it's not necessary).
Newark is a Brazilian and Portuguese community so be prepared to hear a lot of Portuguese language. On the other hand the house is close by the train station so it's actually very easy to go to Manhattan Downtown or Midtown.
