From the press

Budget Travel Magazine named us one of the world’s best new affordable hotels, a select list of 26 international destinations published in Fall 2011.

World's Best New Affordable Hotels
“World’s Best New Affordable Hotels”

The Huffington Post hailed our opening as

“the borough’s newest and hippest bed and breakfast.”

Brooklyn locals have taken notice too. Check out our spread, “Experiments in Living: A New Kind of Brooklyn B&B,” in The L Magazine including an interview with some of the partners:

“Bed and breakfasts aren’t usually the subject of much excitement, but the communal living experiment behind downtown Brooklyn’s 3B has garnered its share of buzz (doesn’t hurt that it’s owned and operated by attractive twenty-somethings).”

Novelist and Philosophy Scholar Clancy Martin gave us a huge shout out in his travel diary for the Paris Review, saying that as far as he was concerned, we were

“the finest hotel in New York”

I check in to my enormous, airy, high-ceilinged room at the 3B, chandeliers dangling from above ($150 a night), and without looking at the time… I head for the stairs to walk to Manhattan. One of the owners of the B&B (there are eight of them, a mix of artists and writers) is standing at the bar reading Heidegger.

I can’t recommend with enough enthusiasm (as much as I’d like to keep the secret for myself)…

The New York Times spotted us early on drawing the attention of

“visitors looking for a taste of Brooklyn-style communal living.”

New York Magazine took note this spring of “A Very Brooklyn B&B”

Fashion site Refinery29 suggested our “haute hostelry” for an in-city staycation “without paying an arm-and-a-leg.”

Brooklyn Ink covered our unique business plan.






Reviews from our guests


Lauren of Stamp48 got engaged during her stay, and wrote a lovely blog post featuring photos of our rooms. She described the rooms as “bright, cheery and well-designed. Each room is different, but is blanketed in white and features different pops of color.”

“4.75/5 Stars: They were super willing to accommodate me, and I felt like I was in good hands while there…Really love this place. Gonna hate it when it’s impossible to book because the secret’s out.” –Julian, Yelp.Com

“5/5 Stars: It felt like we were all old friends, but I also felt like I really had my own space and a lot of privacy…

I would, without a doubt, come back the next time I’m in New York.  I really appreciated feeling comfortable while traveling, but also getting a really uniquely personal view of the city from the people who actually live there.” –Teresa, Yelp.com

“5/5. Had some great conversations and delicious food cooked by the owners. Very unassuming, cool but not aggressively hip, clean and well managed. Highly recommended.” -Jamesturn, tripadvisor.com

“5/5 Stars. In short, if you’re heading to NYC then stay at 3B. It’s 598759347 times better than a hostel at the same price.” -Samuelcooney, citysearch.com
