It's a hat making studio!
I love the diversity in the part of Williamsburg where the apt lies. It's a mix of Dominicans, Hasidic Jews and Hipsters!
M train is one block away, G train 3 blocks away, L train 7 blocks away. Bus stop just across the street too!
Chances are there will be some hat making tools and supplies tucked away in the space, and an occasional hat on display, please don't play with or remove them from the space. Thank you

We had a great experience with Anastasia and using Airbnb for the first time. Anastasia is a gracious host and was flexible when our travel arrangements got changed due to the weather. She stayed in communication with us during the whole process.
The Place: Great location, steps away from the subway with all the amenities one would need near the the apartment in an eclectic neighborhood. The apartment itself is comfortable, charming, and reflects the personality of the host.
The Host: Overall, Anastasia is a generous and thoughtful host. Communication with Anastasia was prompt and effective. She made sure my mother and I were comfortable in her apartment by offering her air mattress and her computer, as well as advice for things to do in the neighborhood.
All in all, a good place to use as a platform for your NYC vacation!
This is a really unique place to stay in Brooklyn. Great location: convenient to metro and market. Awesome restaurants and pubs within walking distance. Anastasia is a fantastic host! Prompt communication. Overall fantastic.
We had a great stay for 5 nights in Anastasia's Williamsburg studio. The location is basically perfect - it's only moments from the subway so it's very quick to get into Manhattan, but there are loads of great bars and restaurants on the doorstep. Anastasia's online "guidebook" to the area was really useful and we tried out lots of her recommendations. Dinner at Moto (1 block away), brunch at Le Barricou, a bar crawl along Grand St and pottering around Bedford Ave were all highlights :)
The apartment is pretty funky and we loved living there. Very useful to be able to use Anastasia's computer for researching and booking things before heading out for the day. The bed is a futon, but fairly comfortable. Bathroom has a decent shower with good pressure. The building next door was being renovated when we were there, so a little noisy first thing in the morning, - I'd recommend some earplugs... All in all, an excellent trip.
Anastasia is lovely and we had a great time at her place. It was clean and conveniently located close to the subway line and excellent restaurants. Anastasia was attentive and on-time in all of our communications. It was great to be able to use her desktop computer when we were doing our research on which exhibitions to see and the best routes to get there - many thanks for that. And, she had it tuned to a great online music source which we listened to in the evening before bed.
We would definitely stay at Anastasia's again.
Anastasia's flat was a perfect little interlude for me, as I was coming home from travel and had airbnb guests of my own for one day after my arrival back to NYC. Anastasia and I are friends for many years, now, and I fully support her with her beautiful, convenient space, right across the street from my own apartment. It's so wonderful that we have these situations to help support each other. Her place was clean and tidy, spacious and had everything I could have needed. I was a happy camper, for sure!
Very good value for money, great location. Excellent location,a stone's throw away from several metrolines. Williamsburg itself is definetely exploring too. Unique appartment, filled with all kinds of fabulous hand-made hats. Anastasia's friend who gave us the key and showed us around was very friendly and attentive. The flat is large, has everything you need (kitchen, bathroom with tub and PC with internet, internet is a bit on the slow side though). Bed is a convertible sofa, but is comfortable.
Anastasia and her studio were both wonderful. The studio is in a convenient location for access to both the hustling streets of Williamsburg and the trains to Manhattan. Anastasia puts care into setting up the room for guests - you can feel it in air, the feng shui feels so good. This isn't a posh Manhattan loft or a dingy room on the far edge of town; it's a room at the perfect balance between those two, with loads of character and a bit of tranquility.
Anastasia is an excellent host who was very helpful and informative. She even was kind enough to check us in at 2am due to our late flight in. The apartment was perfect for our stay. Close to a ton of cool restaurants , bars and shops. Close to public transport. Would definitely stay again!
Very very good position if you want to stay away from Manhattan but still super close to it (literally 2 subway stops). The place is interesting in its own...which was a pleasant surprise.
Anastasia was super helpful, kind, and flexible to accomodate out time schedule. I will highly recommend it!
