Joel was a very good host, nice and always there if we needed something. The apartment is very well located and full of comforts! We suggest this to everyone.
Joel was super friendly and extremely helpful/affable. Room was as advertised. Good to see Wburg again.
Joel's place was the perfect spot for my stay during the week in NYC, where I was traveling for work. It's located just a block away from the subway stop and is near so many great restaurants and bars. Joel was incredibly accommodating to my travel schedule and made sure I received the full tour when I arrived. It was a cozy and clean room and spacious apartment, with just about the most comfortable bed I have slept in. As a woman traveling alone, I always felt safe. The housemates were lovely and kind, and very respectful of the shared space. It was such a relief to have this place to come home to after work each day during the week, and even better to be able to hang out in the energy of this great neighborhood. Highly recommend!
Brooklyn is definitely the place to be! Great location, great neighbourhood, great atmosphere!The apartment is very practical; enventhough we were visiting the city during the day, it was nice to have a place called "home" to enjoy breakfast or diner or just rest!
We were very nicely welcomed by Joel and our flatmates!
Joel was very welcoming! He gave us many tips about the good places in the neighborhood (restaurants, bars, coffee shops...) and what he thought best to visit in a week!
The room is very basic, but we spent all day visiting so it wasn’t a problem! And the apartment is very well located! Willliamsburg is really great, and the L-train will take you to the best spots in NY.
Thank you Joel!
Joel was really nice host! When I was arrive at the station, I got lost the way. But he came to pick up us! Also he taught me a lot of informations about the house and NYC for us. It was really helpful :) The house was really clean, comfortable, and relaxing. Location was awesome! If I will go to NY again, I want to use this house! Thank you Joel ;)
We spent 10 days here and highly recommend this room/apartment. Even though we arrived late at night, our host was there to give us a warm welcome and was ready to help during our stay. Room was really good, especially considering the price. The living room/kitchen was great; had all necessary equipment and felt homely. The neighborhood is lively and feels safe, even late at night. The building is on the same block as the subway that took us to Manhattan in 10 minutes, worked perfectly. After long days of exploring NYC, it was a good place to come back to at night :-)

About the Host, Joel
Heyoooo! I 'm Joel and I have been living in Williamsburg, Brooklyn for 5 years now, originally from Canada. Williamsburg is simply the best; Great places to hang with your friends, eat, drink, and meet new people; Easy access to everything in the city. It is a young, vibrant neighbourhood with new things developing everyday.
I design and build software, and travel quite a bit to various destinations around the world. When in the city I'm out seeing shows and hanging with my friends, most are in the music business. I have also traveled to Argentina, Bahamas, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, England, Greece,Hong Kong, Indonesia, Italy,Japan, Morocco, Singapore, Spain, and Thailand; many more to go!
I play soccer a few times a week to keep fit, and then love to head out, socialize, and have a blast and completely undo all that hard work. :p
Let's do this!
