Clean-up after yourself in the bathroom, kitchen, and living area.
Camilla sent across accurate directions to reach her place. I checked in quite late, post 9pm and she was very accommodating. The location and neighborhood both were great. The room itself was clean and spacious, as was the common area, kitchen and bathroom. Even though I stayed only a night and checked out by 7am, I had a lovely stay and would definitely choose to stay here again!!
Camilla holds high standard for everything. She waited for me late at night and answered all questions I had. The room was neat and came with an extra comforter, a little heater, checkin guide, and an alarm clock. Spotless bed linen. Keep in mind that she's a working-mom, so might not be responsive at times.
Arrived after midnight due to a late flight and long taxi line, and Camilla waited up for me. (The taxi from JFK to her place took about 10 min and cost $18.) She was so nice -- she met me outside her house, took me up to the room, and said hello and goodbye, since she'd be leaving before I woke up. he room was clean and quiet, and the next morning when I got up to shower, nobody else seemed to be in the apartment. Overall I was only there for eight hours, but it was much better than paying big bucks for an airport hotel! The next morning I realized she's only a couple of blocks from the train, so if you arrive in time to take the subway, definitely save the cab fare.
My host made me feel very welcomed. She explained everything and left me on my own to relax. The room was just what as the description said, comfortable and convenient. The walk from the subway to the house was very short and I felt safe at every moment. It was a nice neighborhood.
