This is a very clean place, thoughtfully decorated and in a really distinct part of Brooklyn.
Unfortunately, my stay here was marred by significant communication difficulties with the host. I would recommend talking very clearly with him about check in/ check out times and anything else you might need. My experience negotiating with him was not positive but I hope that what happened between us might lead to him being a bit more flexible and understanding of others in the Airbnb community in the future because it is a really cool place.
The other thing is that the space is not very private. It is a sliding concertina door which doesn't keep out sound and can't be locked.
Daniel was very welcoming, accommodating, friendly and helpful! Had the place almost entirely to myself and it was clean, comfortable and quiet. The gas stove was a plus, the shower unique and the organic amenities were nice to enjoy. Enjoyed the stay very much, would stay here again for sure. Neighborhood was interesting, a little artsy and in general felt safe and comfortable.
We spent 10 days at Daniel's place and everything was just as described! The room is clean, well arranged for 2 people, everything is made for feeling like at home. Daniel has been very flexible at our arrival as we arrived with delay. The apartment is located at 3 min from the L train in the vibrant and arty bushwick neighborhood. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to enjoy Brooklyn life and still be close to Manhattan.
I stayed in Daniel's apartment for a week, and it was a great experience. Although Daniel was not there during my stay, he was very communicative and prompt, and I had no problems checking in. The apartment is well situated if you are interested in Bushwick, the up-and-coming center of music and art in NYC. The room itself is nice and cozy, ideal for one person. There are no windows in the room, but it was not a problem, as the room is directly connected to the large kitchen area, which has lots of natural light.
This was my first Airbnb experience, and I couldn't have been more pleased with it! Daniel was an incredible host, and the room was cozy and clean (and smelled really nice, too). The bed was very comfortable, and I loved the large towels. His soaps and shampoo leaves you feeling nice and fresh, too!
It's conveniently located within walking distance to the subway, and there's a nice cafe below the building that Daniel and I enjoyed breakfast together during my stay. I recommend the breakfast burrito!
When I plan my next trip to NYC, I will make sure to plan it around Daniel's guest room being available!
Daniel was a great host and he was very nice. He made me feel very comfortable and safe.
The place looks even better than in the pictures.
I felt like I had privacy, even in the common areas, which were very clean and tidy.
Easy access to the subway.
If I come back to New York, I would love to stay with Daniel again.
