The Funkiest Loft In Town
Introducing the bright bohemian Funky Loft in Brooklyn, NY!
It is a newly renovated loft in a 1920s industrial building located in Brooklyn’s artsy neighborhood of Bushwick. The vintage details, huge windows, sky lights, and a mixture of colors, all help to create a charming atmosphere.
The Funky Loft has 4 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, hardwood floors, and an open kitchen and living space. It also has a central heat and a/c unit, an awesome speaker system, washer & dryer, and incredible natural light!
Fun fact: The building was built in the 1920’s and still has some of the original brick walls!!!
Some other details that make this place special are the vintage cherry wallpaper accent wall, 1950’s Coca Cola Refrigerator, green velvet vintage couch, large navajo area rug, lush plants, one-of-a-kind vintage furniture and props, a beautiful seafoam kitchen, a kitschy 1970’s themed bathroom with wild animal wallpaper, sliding wood barn doors, AND an indoor swing hanging from the rafters.
If you’re looking for a quirky, fun, artsy place to stay, then The Funky Loft is DEFINITELY for you!
Plus, it’s only a 30 minute subway ride from Manhattan; so you’re able to experience the city while also enjoying quite evenings in Brooklyn.
The Funky Loft has 3 rooms and a loft (where the hosts stay).
While I was there, of course I had to stay in the room that reminded me of a tropical getaway. The bed spread had large green banana leaves all over, a bamboo bookshelf, and twinkle lights. Good vibes only!
I shared this room with a friend of mine and we had enough room for 2 carry on luggages and 2 large checked bags! Also, the full sized bed was unbelievably comfortable (new memory foam mattress)!
This room has a sliding barn door, so there is no lock. However, have no fear. Our hosts were home most of the time and the other guests in the loft were kind, considerate, and sweet!
Behind the pink and yellow door is another room called by the hosts a ‘NY Backpacker’s Dream’. It is the only bedroom with a lock and key.
The room is very spacious. Not only is there space to hang your clothes, but there is room beneath the bed to store whatever you like. The twin sized memory foam mattress fits perfectly between 2 walls (see picture) and is 74 inches long. It is approximately 36 inches off the ground with a step stool to get up, so there is 36 inches of space underneath.
My favorite part about this room were the two windows that open to the outside. This made for some gorgeous natural light, perfect for reading during the day and watching the moon from your bed at night.
The third room was occupied by another guests while we were there so I was unable to take photos, however, here is some information about it in case you’re interested in staying!
This room has a window that opens into the living room and a sliding barn down. It has a size full memory foam mattress, full length mirror, exposed brick, and built in shelf. Perfect for one or two people!

Kitschy 1970’s Themed Bathroom
There is only one bathroom on the premise so each guest and hosts must share.
Since you are sharing, it’s important to be respectful of the rules. For example, if you use your own toiletries, please store them in your room. It would be very difficult to have 5-8 different individual’s toiletries all over the bathroom.
The hosts are kind enough to include towels, Q Tips, cotton swabs, iron, hair blow dryer, shampoo & conditioner, body wash and tampons/pads!
While it was smaller, I honestly loved this bathroom because of the amazing jungle theme! How cute is the wallpaper??
Introducing, Your Host!
Marcella was an AirBNB host in LA for 4 years and was featured in their magazine at the ‘AirBNB Open’ in November 2016! She lives in The Funky Loft in Brooklyn with her boyfriend Antonio, so there will always be a host present. Antonio is an artist and from Portugal. Both are very welcoming and love sharing their home.
