  • I recently stayed at Nora's place with four other friends and we all had a fantastic time there. The space was very spacious and accommodated all of us nicely. It was under a five minute walk to the subway, which allowed us to get where we needed to go with ease. Best of all, Nora was a fantastic host. Although we didn't meet in person, she was incredibly reliable and responsive, and would get back to me right away if I ever had any questions. I would highly recommend her place as a great option for a trip to NYC with a few friends when you want to hang out together and not be split up into hotel rooms. We had a totally lovely time and would stay there again.

  • I might've lucked out while staying at this apt. The heating and hot water were on and off while I was there, I booked for 5 days, but only stayed 3 days because the heating was off during the cold winter of NYC in Jan/2014.
    The host charged me extra for an 7th person, but there wasn't a blanket and a towel for him.
    During my stay, and heating problems, which the host tried to solve, they were away without proper ways of communicating with, it took an average of 10 hours for the host to answer any problems reported.
    The apartment is clean, the kitchen is not properly geared for more than 5 persons, and not everything has a full set. Cookware wise there is a small frying pan, 2 medium-small cassarole with lids.
    Some cabinet doors inside the apartment were broken and the bed upstairs is a queen-sized frame with a double mattress on it, causing the head and feet to sink depending on height.
    The host was kind and tried without avail to fix the heating issue, which was the only reason I left the apt.
    The location is GREAT, nice little markets/delis on the same block. Subway is 3-4 blocks away.

    Response from Nora:

    Heat couldn't have been so bad. When I stopped by to greet them, most had there shirts off and didn't have the decency to cover up. We try to make our guests feel at home when they're here and that means providing heat. This was a one time incident where we not only were we out of the country but there was a unforeseen issue with the boiler in the entire building. Thankfully the issue is resolved.

  • Because of bad weather our flight was redirected to Boston. We had to train to get to NYC. All this being said, it was a long 20 hour struggle to get there. Gonzalo went way out of his way to meet us late in the snow & 15 degree weather to give us the keys. He was a great host & checked via text on us even after we checked out. A perfect ball emcee checking on our well being & letting us have our space. This apartment have us a great feel for our future move to NYC. Close to J & M trains for out of towners like us.
    Enjoyed our stay.
    Thank you guys for your hospitality,
    David & Mandy Jenkins

  • Gonzalo is incredibly helpful. He gave us many great tips when we met to pick up the keys, and kindly left us a space heater when we mentioned that the loft gets quite chilly in the winter.

    The apartment is cozy and bare, and all three sleeping areas are interconnected, so there's no real privacy, if that's what you want. There's also no tv, if you were planning on watching some TV in New York. The neighbourhood looks a little bit dingy but we generally felt quite safe. I think as long as you travel safe - don't stay out too late, don't be obnoxious - you'll do fine. The apartment is really great value for money and it's a 20 minute commute to Manhattan.

    The apartment is conveniently located close to two train stations, and both the J and M train take you all the way into Manhattan. It's a fairly easy city to navigate though the subway system gets a little bizarre on the weekends - some trains run, some don't. Just be attentive to the schedule changes on weekends and holidays.

    There's a laundromat a couple of blocks down the street, very convenient. A convenience store at the corner for drinks and food you may need. Little Skips is about 10 minutes away, for fabulous breakfast and coffee.

  • Host: Gonzalo was a very amicable host. He was very friendly and had good intentions. Very attentive to heater issues and lack of blankets. When he came, I soon realized he would not be able fix heater so I dismissed it and took care of myself. He brought two additional blankets.
    Area: Very old and run down area. Not well kept. I did, however, loved the diversity and food in the area. Convenient commute to NYC. “J” goes right into Little Italy and China Town.
    Building: Very old and run down. Not well kept. Maintenance very poor and from mere perception, seems to be un-safe. May be typical in old city such as Brooklyn, I don’t know. 2 doors down, there was a house that was shut down by Health department, deemed un-safe and prepped for mitigation.
    Apartment: On 3rd floor. Lack of general maintenance very apparent in bathroom (deceiving pics). 2 heaters did not work during cold winter stay until I figured out that the steam/air vent needed to be removed and shaken a little to remove condensate in cavity.
    Rooms: Total of 3 real beds (full/queen). Comfortable beds. The 2-level bedroom was practical and seemed remodeled within last 10 years, but, normal wear and tear on walls, accessories, doors, etc. certainly apparent and un-maintained.
    General: Overall good stay. Certainly not a Gem. I have not stayed in any of the other houses in the area so it's hard to say if comparable. I paid $203/night for 6 adults. If I would have stayed in Hotel, I would have paid ~$320/night for 2 rooms (double-bed each). Is the extra $120/night worth it to be in hotel. In my opinion… YES.

  • We stayed in Bushwick with 8 people for 6 days. We had three double beds and one double air mattress. Which was ok but a little crowded, especially in the bathroom. The way to manhatten by Metro was quite fast but coming home in the night sometimes took twice as long.
    The neighbourhood is quiet and peaceful even if it seems to be creepy. We felt very safe.
    Its worth it to run around in Bushwick, there are places that have a lot more to offer than the streets around the flat. The little skips is a nice place to have breakfast (good coffe and beagles) if you are comfortable with hipster wearing earphones behind laptops. :)
    The communicaton with Gonzalo was uncomplicated throughout. He came over once to check if we are fine.
    I would definitely recommend this place for groups of families or friends from 4 to 6 people.

  • Good location to reach downtown Manhattan and JFK airport, close to two metro stations, home clean and ordered!

  • Appartement très bien situé, près des stations de metro. Une des lits est terriblement inconfortable et les chambres ne sont pas très isolées, donc pas l'idéal pour plusieurs couples. L'appartement n'était pas très propre, nous avons cru voir un cafard et entendus des souris. Nous nous attendions un peu à ça pour le prix.
    Si vous ne voulez pas payer trop cher, c'est une très bonne option.
    J'ai déjà eu vraiment pire.

  • He was a great host. The Location is about 5 minutes away from the Subway Station. Would Recommend!

    Had trouble connecting our iPhone4's to the wi-fi network. I suspect the router used a more secure connection (WPA2) that wasn't compatible. Our iPads and Androids didn't have this problem.

  • You can't beat the host with his personal interest in making your stay as faboulous as possible! He managed to meet us even though we checked in far too early... He made everything possible to make sure we get the keys and to meet us later sometimes. His personal tips about NY and his effort to fix the internet were unique!
    The apt has plenty of space to spread out your suitcases and is easy to reach by public transportation.
    Thank you!
