We enjoyed our stay in Justins apartment a lot. Justin and his friend Alex were both very responsive and easily accessible.
The apartment was very well located, just minutes from several subway stations, supermarkets, bars and restaurants and looks and as described on this page. We were 6 people, sleeping in the two beds and on an inflatable matress, which could get a little cozy, but we didn't come here to spend the whole day inside.
I can definitely recommend the apartment and Justin as a host!
The apartment is very quiet, well located, spacious, nevertheless the bathroom is a bit aging. It was not clean but Justin partly refunded the cleaning fees and he was really kind and reactive by email.
Justin (and his friend Alex) were very pleasant to deal with. They were very responsive! We encountered one minor issue after checking in, but it was handled very quick and to our liking. The location is excellent and just walking up one short flight of stairs was a plus! His home was quiet with great lighting and a great little Brooklyn charm. We enjoyed our stay!
Location was great. Justin was very available and very friendly and helpful.
My family and I needed a last minute temporary place to stay while work was being done in our apartment. Justin was very very responsive and able to arrange us getting into the apartment on very short notice. Throughout our stay, Justin was easily accessible if anything came up (though nothing did), and overall we had a good stay.
Justin was an excellent host. Although I never met him personally, he was always available by text. I had lots of questions about the area and he was always right there to provide answers and suggestions. We were going to an event at the Barclays Center and this apartment was conveniently located about a 15 minute walk away.
Justin's place is in a awesome neighborhood fill with great restaurants and coffee houses. We walked to the nearby Transit Museum which turned out to be so much fun for the kids. Getting to the Brooklyn Bridge for our walk across was easy too.
Justin's place is clean and well out-fitted. Kids enjoyed the huge tv we enjoyed the comfy beds. Communication was effort-less and timely both coming and going. Hope to stay again soon.
I travel a ton for work so want to make sure someone can make use of my apartment in this really great neighborhood. Would love to tell you all my favorite local spots, as well as other highlights of NYC if you are visiting!
