The Space

Jimi Hendrix once lived in this wonderful East Village walk-up building. Accommodates 2 people.
Right in the heart of it all with large kitchen, bathroom with cast iron shower tub, and living room available. Private bedroom has a full-sized bed. Living room has a queen-sized pull-out bed (for full apartment rental only, not during a share). Air conditioning in private room. Spacious spot and surprisingly quiet in the heart of it all. Cable and internet service.

Please no smoking or use of illegal drugs.
Please notify of any additional guests... there will be an additional charge for extra people or queen sleeper in the living room.

This is a really delightful spot within a two block walk of the #6 Astor subway line, three blocks from 8th Street N, R, and about a 10 minute walk from the F line. You are within 10 minutes of Union Square the Lower East Side and SoHo. Fantastic restaurants are everywhere and some of the best coffee shops you will ever find... an amazing way to experience New York.

  • Kafi was a great host and had the perfect balance of preserving privacy while also remaining welcoming and communicative. I didn't know she would be there but it was a good experience that she was. She is very knowledgable about the city and willing to help you find or do whatever appeals to you.

  • Mooi appartement, schoon en alles wat nodig is. Kafi was vriendelijk en liet ons gewoon onze gang gaan. Bij vragen gaf zij netjes antwoord en verder was er weinig conservatie. Het delen van een appartement was wel even wennen, maar het ging eigenlijk wel goed. Een aanrader voor mensen die het niet erg vinden om wat minder privacy te hebben.
    Zou bij een volgend bezoek met een vriend zo weer voor dit appartement gaan. Voor een bezoek met mijn vrouw zou ik liever een eigen appartement hebben.

  • Our experience staying with Kafi was extremely pleasant. The room and apartment were as described and seen on the website, and Kafi was friendly and very helpful. The location of the apartment was ideal for easy travel to and from the different areas of the city and made the perfect base from which to explore. Overall, we had a great three weeks in Kafi's apartment and we're thankful to Kafi for sharing her place with us for the time we were there. We would highly recommend staying at this apartment.

  • We had a great experience staying here. The area is awesome, really close to the subway and close to a very fun and lively street. Kafi is really nice and we felt very welcomed and also that our privacy was respected. The only two downsides is the speed of the internet connection (not too bad, but still hard to watch youtube or something like that) and the squeaky bed :) It's very comfortable though. All in all I think this is a great place to stay in NYC, I really would recommend this place to my friends.

    The room was lovely and the apartment clean and tidy.
    The location is great - great bars around it and there's great clubs not far away in Meat packing district.

  • It was our first Airbnb experience and it was UNBELIEVABLE !
    Kafi is amazing ! She will always help you to find great things to do in town or in the neighborhood. The location of the apartment was great to. Kafi's place is definitely the best place to stay in NYC.

    L'appartement de Kafi est très bien situé à NYC. Vous serez très proches de tout. La chambre dans laquelle vous dormirez est très propre et très cozy. Kafi est vraiment super sympa et vous aidera à trouver des lieux vraiment cool pour boire un verre ou pour vous détendre. N'hésitez pas !

  • I had a perfect quite stay during my final days in NY, before returning home, after travelling for a long time. I was a bit tired from all the travelling around and was glad of having my own room and corner for 5 nights. Kafi was very friendly from the first contact on. I was glad to have a flexible check-in and out. She was very respectful of my space at all times, and we had some pleasant moments together too. She is always open for conversation and for giving you tips on whatever your plan for the day is. The neighborhood is perfectly located and has subways and services in walking distances. I felt very safe, even walking around late at night. I was there on my own this time, but might go back with one more person when in town again. Thank you for everything Kafi. (btw It all worked well with my heavy luggage ) ;) See you soon!

    It was so refreshing to have you around! I'm glad everything worked out with you luggage. That was a big undertaking! Come back anytime.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Kafi's cosy but spacious appartment. It was clean, comfortable and surprisingly quiet considering its location in the heart of the East Village, with everything you need on the doorstep including a foot-rub!!
    Kafi was very friendly and helpful, but discreet and respectful of our space at all times. Simply hope we did likewise....
    Anyway, many thanks to Kafi for her kind hospitality which we can strongly recommend to anyone seeking accommodation for 2 in this "hip" neighbourhood!

    Response from Kafi:

    I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. You were such a pleasure to host!
