I found this accommodation out of the Lonely Planet guide. Conveniently located between subway stations at 96th and 103rd streets, property is at the quieter end of Lexington Avenue but which we found to be very safe and at no stage were we uncomfortable coming home late at night. Our room was nicely decorated, a good size and had a very comfortable bed. The room was self contained with fridge, microwave, hotplate, kettle, toaster and utensils, ideal for us to prepare our own breakfast. Hosts Jonathan and Clement provided us with a beautiful basket of goodies for us to enjoy. They also thought about practical things like USA adaptors, Lonely Planet guides and an extensive list of nearby restaurants. The lodge is convenient to many takeaway food places and good quality restaurants, one being a small Italian restaurant right next door.
We found our hosts to be very friendly and we felt welcome into their home. All this at a extremely reasonable price for accommodation in New York at one of the busy times of the year. I would have no hesitation in staying their again and recommending Bubba and Bean to anyone travelling to New York.

We stayed at the Bubba and Bean lodges the first weekend in December and we were very happy with everything. We arrived in the middle of the night due to a 9 hour flight delay, but our host didn't make a fuss about it. We felt very welcome at the BB lodges. Our room felt more like a little apartment and the area was clean and safe. There are two metro stops very close by the guesthouse. One of them (stop on Lexington and 96th street) was right next to a Starbucks. I would definitely recommend this guesthouse to anyone looking for a nice "good value for money", "feels like home" accommodation.

Jonathan & Clement made us feel like we were personal guests in their home. Very clean, and every detail was taken care of. Transit connections are great- bus stops right in front of the door, subway is 1 block (and a very steep hill) away. Grocery stores and restaurants within the block. Very safe neighborhood. Jonathan & Clement are a great resource of information and tips on the best places to go in the neighborhood, and even leave a long sheet of tips in the room. Take their advice- take a cab from the airport!

Room Tip: Only 8 rooms, they are all good!

I have stayed at Bubba and Beans twice: Once with two girlfriends, and one by myself. Both times were fantastic. The rooms/apartments are large, spacious, clean, and fully equipped. Absolutely everything you could want for a pleasant stay is provided. It is safe, easy access ... in other words, I never felt UN-safe in the neighborhood. The proprietors are friendly, businesslike, and totally professional in the operation of their apartments. Plus, this is amazingly affordable for NYC!!! I try to stay there as often as I can, but they are booked WAY in advance, so book early (especially on the holidays).

We loved staying at Bubba and Bean. The hosts Jonathan and Clement were so helpful. The room was spacious and very well equiped. Particularly loved the basket of goodies they left for us. It is a great location too - very close to the subway and plenty of restaurants nearby. Also close to Central Park. A real all round winner.
