I was well received, and the online desciption of the place was to the point.
Very accommodating hosts & great location in NY. Very near Penn Station and other attractions!
Hosts Yuko & Lu very friendly. Room and apt as described. Really close to anywhere, safe to walk even at night. Bathroom is shared, but as we waked up early and got late at night, had no problem. As so was the window next to the street. We recommend and would stay again there. It was our first airbnb.
I can't recommend this place enough!! Walking distance from just about everything, and tons of subways close by as well. The room was clean and private. Yuko & Lu were incredibly accommodating - from letting me in at 1AM the night I got in, lending me an iron to iron out my suit, and lending me an umbrella and water-proofing spray for the rainy day. They were so sweet. I will definitely be trying to stay with them again if I'm ever back in NYC :)
I stayed with Yuko last year and I was so happy she had availability this year! They're super great, helpful and polite!! The apartment is very clean and cozy! Great hosts!
It was great staying with Yuko and Lu which were very welcoming and friendly. Room was clean and tidy and the location of the apartment is superb. Highly recommended for anyone that's looking for a reasonably priced accommodation that's close to transport, food and major attractions.
Best suited if you want to explore the city. Super close to the Time Square and other good stuff. Yuko and Lu were very accommodative. We checked in at really odd hours and they were happy to let us in (it was 1:00 am!) Very nice people at the center of the city. If you are looking for affordable and super good place near NYC I would strongly recommend this place!
