No smoking in the apt. Leave keys on the night stand in the room when you are checking out and close the door behind you. As well, please clean your dishes and make sure you turn off lights and air conditioner when you are not in the room and when you leave. When showering please clean up after yourself. Clean the drain of your own hair.
The space was clean and sparse which left enough room for my personal belongings to be arranged. The instructions for key pick up were easy to follow. Checkout procedure was also clearly stated.
I would advise looking for another place. And I'm not really a hard client. So many things went wrong :
- The apartment is not clean. The bathroom is dirty in general, the kitchen floor was dirty, the room had a layer of filth under the heater and close to the wall. The main room was okay.
- Our arrival was really weird. We had to go to another apartment, where an elderly woman who didn't speak English passed us a phone to another woman who told us to join her at the apartment. There, no hello, no smile, just explaining keys and that towels are 3$ a day. We don't use Airbnb just because it's cheaper. We use it to meet people from the place we are in.
- We arrived exhausted from our trip, so we went to take a nap. Turns out it's impossible to get sleep and be warm at the same time, since the heater evacuates steam every hour or so, making a really loud and annoying noise when it does. When contacted about this issue, the host answered 6 hours later saying he couldn't do anything about it. We had to figure out how to turn off the heat by ourselves.
- The mattress is paper thin.
On the plus side, Astoria is a nice, calm, human neighborhood where you will find cool spots to eat and chill. The subway station is close by, and will get you to Manhattan in 20mn.
All in all, I'm happy I only had to stay two days there. Go somewhere else.
Great stay at Bloz's place. We loved the location. The house manual and instructions are best out of any airbnb listing we we've seen so far. Also extremely accommodating to our needs. Thank you so much, we'll be happy to stay in your apartment again.
After reading all the good reviews we decided to take this room, but i guess we had bad luck, we went for 3 nigths and we leave the apartment one nigth before because our room was so dirty, under the bed there was dust, papers and one plastic bottle, so clearly no one cleans under de bed, the heating is old and also full of dust, in the nigth is really noisy, so we turn it off to get some sleep, but if turn it off its cold, so You have to decide whats the best, and finally the second nigth we had a shower with cold water, by the way, the bathroom was full of hairs, Also unclean and full of humity stains, i wont go back and i dont recomend.
One of my most complicated guests. Yes one day they were working on the hot water system in the building which was out of my hands. As far as the dirt under the bed, when I came there to take a look, supposedly they cleaned everything, but asked for their money back, all $45 a night for 2 people in NYC. I believe they were just trying to get money back because my mother really does clean well.
No vimos nunca a Bloz, solo a la madre que nos dio la llave, y a los demás huespedes, pues hay 3 habitaciones pero no es una casa habitada, no creo que Bloz viva ahí.
Las indicaciones para llegar son muy precisas y muy buenas.
Falta aclarar que son 4 pisos por escalera.
El barrio es muy lindo y seguro y la ubicación está muy bien.
Lo que ves en las fotos es lo que obtenés. Para pasar la noche nomás está bien. No es una casa de familia ni hogareña, ni te sentís cuidado por el anfitrión.
Host made me feel super welcome! Had a slight miscommunication on the arrival details, but Bloz totally took care of it, and even at a bizarre hour late at night. Very friendly and accomodating :)
The location is clearly great, since it's in a nice area in Brooklyn, but still only 20 min in subway from Times Square. However, it felt more like a cheap hostel than a real home or similar. In the 3 days I spent there I only met the "cleaning lady" who gave me the keys the first day, and definitely not in the kindest way. The apartment is completely "empty", except the two chairs and sofa on the picture, which felt quite weird. Moreover, cleanliness is an issue and the heating didn't work well either. Unlike the other times I've used Airbnb, I found the place quite inhospitable.
