Interaction with Guests

I travel a lot, I'm a musician... I may or may not be around during your stay, but I will do my best to at least meet you and have a good conversation at least once. Other than that, I'll set you up, and you should be set to explore the city on your own accord. My roommates are always really nice too :)

  • Our stay at Ben's appartment was nice. Everything we needed was there. Even if we didn't met Ben we had a great welcome by his friend. The room was just perfect for our short trip to NYC :)

  • My first time using AirBnB and I was left with a very positive feeling about everything. Im very happy that I chose to stay with Ben. Roommates were all great and very helpful if I needed anything. Next time Im coming to NY most definitely staying at Ben’s again and will recommend he’s place to friends travelling there also!

  • Benjamin was a lovely host - was super quick, understanding and accommodating with all communication and was flexible with check-in and check-out times. The room itself was super cosy and had great heating, which was very welcome in the bitter New York winter. The apartment was shared with other roommates who were also friendly and accommodating.

  • It was my first time using airbnb under my name so I did not know what to expect but I had a great time staying at Ben's apartment. Beautiful space especially the living room. Everything is well maintained and kept clean. Its in a great location. Right near the park. Everything you need is close by, restaurants, groceries, and subway etc. I highly recommend staying there!

  • Nice spacious room, good location with very easy access to Manhattan. The Park is very close and wonderful with lots of activity and on the north side of the park is plenty of cafes, restaurants ect.
    I didn't meet the roommates that often, since I worked a lot most of my stay and we had very different schedules.
    Benjamin is a very easy-going and made sure we never ran out of toilet paper.

    April 2013
  • Benjamin was a fantastic host! The bedroom, especially the bed and comforter, was great - very comfortable. The commute to Manhattan is very easy. Overall, it was a great stay!

  • What a great place to stay in NY! Brooklyn is very cool and the apartment is really near to the subway. Is clean and the guys (Raymond and Benjamin) help me anytime when I needed! I'll recommend for my friends and I'd like to go back!

    September 2012
  • A clean, simple and quiet room with air conditioning and internet close to a train. Benjamin and his roommate Raymond were very responsive whenever I needed something.

    It was just what I needed in New York.
    Thanks you guys!

  • Ben is great! I was in a bind and booked a room with him on fairly short notice. He was always accommodating and polite. He assisted me with all of my housing needs and I found the entire experience to be both professional and positive. The apartment is clean with all necessary amenities. My room, in particular, was very comfortable -- like a home away from home! Ben is an excellent host.

    What really stands out, however, is Ben's genuine kindness towards others. He has great insights about people and the world we live in. I could talk to him about any subject, but never felt like I couldn't have privacy if I needed it. I guess what I'm saying is if you want someone to talk to you can rely on Ben. If privacy is your thing, then you have it.

    I highly recommend staying with Ben if you're interested in the area. Beautiful Prospect Park is right around the corner. A great, up-and-coming location! Also there are two subways nearby that offer good access to Union Square among other destinations.

    Ben is also a great musician with a love for all music!

    Five stars!
