A great stay. Boris was helpful and give some useful recommendations, otherwise we pretty much have the place for ourselves. Location is not really central but very near to bus stop and train station.

We stayed 3 nights. The apartment was fairly small but it has a sort of mezzanine set up. Our bedroom and a separate bathroom were located upstairs, providing a fair amount of privacy. The ceiling was extremely low so if you are taller than 6ft (1m85), you'll have to watch your head. The bed was comfortable but quite narrow for a double bed. Cleaning was okish but there was definitely room for improvement. The bedroom faces the street so it was a bit noisy - especially on Saturday night as one of the neighbours played very loud music until 3am. The location is convenient if you intend to visit Brooklyn but not ideal if you plan to spend most of your time in Manhattan. There's a metro station 5 minutes walking away but you need to change lines a couple of times to get to Manhattan. (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps said it would take around 35min but it was always much longer than that. We haven't seen Boris during the whole stay, apart from the first night when we arrived. It wasn't really a typical airbnb experience as the host was obviously not very happy to have us around nor into sharing any tips, info or really anything. We did ask a few courtesy questions but the answers we received weren't inviting conversation. The whole thing was very impersonal and definitely the worse experience we had on Airbnb so far. Our return flight was at 6pm so we asked the day before if we could checkout at 2pm. Boris said that it was ok. However, we received a text message at 9am on the day we were leaving, asking us to pack our stuff and vacate the bedroom because other guests were arriving at 10am (in just 1 hour). We had the option to leave our bags in the living room but we didn't find the last minute change of plans very nice - We've decided to leave straight away and put our bags in a luggage storage room downtown. We would not stay here again as we think that staying here kind of spoiled our first time in New York.

Response from Boris & Paola:
Hey Bruno, very sorry that your whole NYC trip was spoiled by my physical and emotional absence - I wish you told me sooner! - Good call on the cleanliness - that's always very important. - And yes, the apartment isn't in a super central location - it's a calm neighborhood, away from the city, but we make our way there daily, no problem - it's why this room is such a deal :) Hope you got to see a lot of Brooklyn too! - Check out times are always the same, the room needs to be cleaned before the next guest. Often times guests ask to leave their luggage because the flight is not until later in the day - usually it goes without saying that the luggage simply needs to be moved to the living room. I certainly didn't mean for it to seem like the plans were changed! - And perhaps this a good to platform for a disclaimer: I for one have to work more than 50 hours a week. The time I am home, I like to rest and can be a little aloof. This isn't going to be like your grandma's house: I pride this listing on privacy and giving my wonderful guests their space in the little cozy room! (That's how I like to travel, for sure!) Again apologies for your sub-par experience and good luck with your other travels!

I only met Boris on the first day and they are not around most of the time. However, the communication was great! Boris responded to my message real fast even I did some stupid mistake like locking the bedroom door (everyone, please do not repeat my stupidity. the key is only for the main entrance and the apartment). The thing we love the most was the dedicated bathroom which is on the same floor as the bedroom. the privacy was great. It was like we have that floor just for ourselves. the kitties are lovely, but they are mostly only on the sofa and didn't interact much with us. public transport is just a few blocks away (line G, Myrtle station). we are really happy with our stay. Boris & Paula, Thank you.
