Check In
  • Josh was an excellent host during our stay in the East Village. He was the right combination of friendly and professional - both in his demeanor and in his communication. Very prompt and accommodating. My girlfriend and I are thoroughly happy that we picked his place for our first airbnb experience.

    His apartment is all about the location. Heaps of places to check out in the neighborhood. The flat itself was thoroughly clean and setup to make fantastic use of the space available. It felt much larger to live in than I was expecting. It is an older place, so it does have its quirks, but that almost adds to the experience. I would not hesitate a second to stay there again when I make it over to NYC next.

  • Josh's Charming East Village Flat is exactly that; stylish, comfortable and very clean. It has a perfect location with subway just a few blocks away. Right around the corner you can find great restaurants, bakeries, and grocery stores. Josh is a very helpful and attentive host. I would certainly recommend his apartment to others.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Josh's flat. It looks exactly like in the photos. The flat had clearly been professionally cleaned before we arrived and everything, including the bathroom, was spotless. We used his WiFi without any problems.
    Just so you know, there isn't a TV, but that didn't bother us at all.
    The East Village location was perfect. Josh is friendly, helpful and super-organised.
    If we come back to New York, we would definitely stay here again. Thanks, Josh!

  • This apartment is exactly as it is described. It is large by New York standards and bigger than we expected. Very comfortable to spread out in for a while. Good bathroom and very functional kitchen (though we never cooked) and very comfortable bed. It was hot while we we were there and the air conditioning kept it cool. It is 3rd floor and no elevator - common in NYC.Josh was very good to deal with and responded quickly. The location is excellent and quiet yet right near everything you might need and a 10 minute walk to the subway.
    The condition of the apartment is immaculate and clean and because of this I guess Josh requires a larger than usual bond which is preferred through PayPal and which he refunds in 21 days if all is OK. That is a bit of an inconvenience because you end up out of pocket for a month or so. I reckon it's a bit steep for the Air BNB community but nevertheless I highly recommend the apartment and would definitely stay again.
    Personally I like East Village the most of the Manhattan boroughs. Neighbourly and clean and fresher air than the Upper sides. Walk to Soho, Greenwich, West Village, LES. Oh and get a bike from NY Velo on 2nd Av and ride across Williamsburg Bridge on a Saturday and see the Flea Market. Priceless on a nice day.

  • The pictures you see accurately reflect the flat that you stay in. The place is tastefully put together, with all that you need at the ready. Would not be surprised to see myself there again in the future.

  • It was so lovely to be back at Josh’s – like an incredibly cool home-from-home. And we got to meet Josh this time as well, which was great. We had a wonderful, hassle-free holiday and have already recommended his place to friends!

  • We had a wonderful time at Josh's apartment. He was an ideal host - friendly, accommodating and efficient. Although he was abroad during our visit, he made sure we were well looked after and called to check all was okay. The apartment is stylish and spacious, on an incredibly cool street in the East Village. We loved pretending we lived there! I have no hesitation at all in recommending Josh's apartment and can't wait for our next visit.

  • I really can't rate Josh, or his charming little East Village Flat, highly enough. The flat is perfectly positioned in a great neighbourhood within easy walking distance of an array of amazing East Village sounds, sights and tastes. Comfortable and tastefully decorated, it was the perfect place to unwind after a long day (or night) of exploring New York City.

    Josh himself was a delightful host - helpful, friendly, and very welcoming.

    All up I'd have to say my experience with Josh and my time in his apartment were pretty much perfect, and I really hope to be able to do it all again some time soon.

  • Our stay at Josh's apartment was absolutely perfect!!! The place is wonderful: charming, clean, spacious and warm. The neighborhood is lovely, great location! And Josh is a great host! He was so kind before arriving NY and also during our stay that we are totally thankful. We had a great time in Josh's apt and in New York as well, so we'd love to repeat the experience soon! Thank you Josh!!!

  • Josh was great and his apartment is very very nice. Beautiful location, great space, and great neighbours! Our first Air experience and one that means we shall definitely use it - and Josh's place when we are next in NYC - again.
