Colin's place is a great value for your money. The room is large, the apartment is just 5 mins away from the nearest subway station, and the neighborhood is safe. Colin even printed our Broadway tickets for us since we bought them last minute! My sister and I enjoyed our 5-day stay here and we highly recommend it. :)

This airbnb was exactly what was offered in the post. My friend and I had a great stay and it was only 5 blocks from the closest subway to take us wherever we wanted to go. Definitely recommend staying here for any sort of trip!

We stood with Colin and his sweet mother Rose for a week in New York, with a lot of expectations according to what we read before on this site , and let me tell you something, it was the best week of our lives! Not only the place is exactly as you see it on pictures but also every single comment of it is true! We felt at home all the time, went in and out at any hour with no problem, the building is safe and the neighborhood although some ppl might say it's dangerous, nothing happened to us, even when we came back at 4 a.m. on the subway and had to walk 5 blocks to get home...yeah, that's how we called Colin's house If you want to meet another side of NYC, the Harlem is a beautiful neighborhood to walk around, ppl are very nice and kind and the parks on the riverside are gorgeous. The house is so comfortable, exactly as described! And the price is excellent, really, don't hesitate! A big hug to you two from Federico and Douglas from Uruguay P.S. Thank you very much for waking us up today, if it wasn't for you we would have missed the plain, sorry!

Response from Colin:
Hi Fede and Doug, Thank you for such a wonderful review. We are glad that you made your flight after all. We were worried that you would miss it. We hope that you will come back soon and stay with us again. It was so nice having you here. Best, Colin

They had a very clean apartment, the room is very big so there's plenty of space. The host is kind and very helpful, he allowed me to leave my bags at his place sinceI had a late flight and I already checked out. If the host isn't there his mom usually is and she's really sweet. There's plenty of food options near the apartment building, and it's only 1 or 2 train rides to get to everything.

Our 8 day stay with Colin and his mother was fantastic. Everything is as he advertises. The apartment is clean and has everything you need. The neighborhood is lively and has anything you need at any time of the day. Getting around throughout Manhattan was a breeze with one of the main subways only 5 blocks from the apartment. Colin's mom is the sweetest person and made our stay feel like home. We had the best morning conversations and she always made us feel so welcome. We had one of the best vacations we have had yet and staying at Colin's apartment was just the start. Thank you Colin. We can only pray we have the option to rent a room with you again in the future.

Collin's place was exactly what my sister and I were hoping for! We were able to come and go very easily, it was ALWAYS clean, and Collin and his mom are very welcoming. Our stay in NYC was great!
