Talk to me about check in/out time. I will try to be as convenient for you as possible.

Yuko & Lu could not have been better hosts! The room/apartment was very nice - cozy. I mean, you don't come to NYC to stay in the room the whole time. Shared a bathroom & Yuko was generous enough to loan us some towels. The room was not airconditioned but stayed pretty cool because it's a basement level apartment and the room had a fan. The apartment was immaculate. The location was very convenient no more than 2 blocks from Penn Station and central location to everything! I cannot tell you how awesome of a stay we had & that it was all made possible by your generosity! We wish the best for you both!
Such a great location with easy access to subway stations. Yuko and Lu were very friendly, helpful and a pleasure to stay with. Would definitely recommend if you're looking for a spot in the west village/chelsea area.
We arrived in NYC at night and the pouring rain, thankfully yukos place was a quick walk from Penn station. Finding the place and checking in was all to easy. The unit is small, as described, but the room was a good size and Yuko and Lu are sincerely cruisey! Really relaxed, comfortable stay in a great part of the city.
Yuku and Lu were great, kind and flexible hosts. Arrival was very easy with flexible check-in and Yuku was there to greet us and explain everything. They were happy to answer any of our queries or have a chat :) the place was great, and located so well in the City. Loved our stay here and the positive vibes in the apartment!
We stayed at Yuko and Lu's apartment for a week while in New York. The location is great, apartment as described and Yuko and Lu were very friendly when we saw them (which actually wasn't that often!). Communication beforehand was great and they were very accommodating with check out time as our flight wasn't until late in the day. Would highly recommend staying here.
Yuk & Lu sont des hôtes très agréables et discrets, présents en cas de besoin et toujours sympathiques ! La chambre est très bien pour deux personnes et propre, l'appartement est bien situé proche de Times Square et de nombreux autres centres d'intérêts (Empire State Building, High Line, Rockfeller Center ...). Pratique et confortable !
