We had some good fun at this simple, yet strategically located apt in NYC. Everything was clean and simple and the location was great. The only downside is if you stay on a weekend there is a club downstairs that closes at about 2am leading to a lot of noise in the street until around 4am on most weekend nights.
The location of this apartment is really good and the size is pretty decent as well. There are a couple of big minuses though:
1. Two of the apartments are on the streetside where we experienced a lot of noise especially during the nights. Meatpacking is a great area to go out, but this also brings the noise until early in the morning.
2. Apartment number 4 where we stayed does not have Wifi, because the signal is too weak to reach that place. Since internet is a must-have nowadays, this is very inconvenient.
3. Water temperature and pressure were really bad. The hottest you can get the shower is lukewarm at most and the pressure is not constant and very low. Don't expect a nice shower when staying here.
Our score is biased because of the three reasons above. If they are not a problem for you, the score is probably 4 out of 5.
Downsides first - the Internet never worked on the top floor and our order night the water stopped altogether. But the manager fixed the water within an hour and we would leave our room to get the Internet on the ground floor steps. The noise - it's the meatpackers, it is what it is. Ask for the top floor for quiet. The area is in a cracking location for young types, probably annoying for older. I loved the room and the locale, couldn't have been better for space in NY, that doesn't happen often! Annoying you only get one set of keys as we would always have to coordinate to be home at a certain time to let the other in. All in all a bloody great place.
Unfortunately we did not have good stay at Thomas' apartment. The apartment is extremely noisy and sits on top of bar and is next to a nightclub that plays very loud music until the late hours of the morning, even on a Wednesday night when we stayed at the apartment. We lost running water for periods, so we could not shower or brush our teeth. The bathroom door also has no door handle, so there is very little privacy in the bathroom. There are also no blackout curtains, so the apartment lets in quite a lot of light in the morning if you want to sleep in. The pillows are also extremely hard.
I would not recommend this apartment, unless you are just looking for a place to crash after a night of clubbing in the meatpacking district.
I offered Jacklyn and her mother a full refund once they called me on the evening of their arrival. They said that the water pressure was low and that the music was too loud. I was immediately able to call downstairs and have the water pressure returned because we were working on installing a pump to insure that we don't have any more problems with our water pressure. The pump has been installed and we are fully capable of being able to provide our guests with water even though the neighborhood still experiences lost in pressure due to the area using a large amount of water. I offered earplugs which she said would not help. I never advertise that we have black out blinds but we do have curtains and you can see this in the pictures. My reviews clearly state the issues with the neighborhood and some noise. This is a Meatpacking district studios and is one of the most popular parts of the city, Our reviews state this and you are staying in a neighborhood where the hotels are $600+ per night. We are not a luxury hotel and don't advertise that we are. Our bathrooms are in the studio and are private to each guest in the studio but do not have locks, Unless you decide to barge in on your partner, they would offer plenty of privacy to anyone staying in the room. Once I offered the full refund her mother replied by saying no and that she would just write a bad review. She was negative about everything and it is always my wish to provide a great experience and if I cannot, I will offer a refund which I did but she refused. I would never recommend hosting this guest ever.
The studio looks great, is clean, and is in a perfect location. However - for me- it is not a 'real' Airbnb experience (staying in a personal apartment or room). We did have some problems when we arrived because we couldn't get in the studio at the agreed time (2pm) and we had to wait until 5pm before we could go in. Fortunately the people in the bar downstairs were very nice and stored our bags for the day and even sent an email when the studio was ready!
If you want to stay in a nice studio in a good neighborhood you can choose this place, if you are looking for an Airbnb experience, have conversations with your host and get good tips, this is not the place you want to go.

There are a lot of good things about this studio apartment – it’s large, clean, attractively furnished, light and airy with a good air conditioning unit (which we appreciated as we were there in August). And it’s well located right next door to the High Line and surrounded by great restaurants, bars and shops.
On the downside it has a real problem with the water supply.
We returned to the apartment after a hot August day in New York with an hour to go before an evening engagement (a wedding – fortunately not ours). We jumped into the shower, turned on the water and – nothing. No water meant no washing, no cleaning of teeth, no drinking water… Luckily, the water system decided to come back on again a little later so we could have a fast, if intermittent, shower before we went out.
And that was really the situation for all of the four days and nights we stayed there. The water service came and went at will – unfortunately, its will, not ours.
We contacted Thomas who’d rented us the apartment, but he did not return any of our calls. In fact, his communications while we were fixing up the rental of the apartment as well as during our stay were as reliable as his water supply.
Minor issues were that the kitchen ‘area’ had cups and glasses, not plates and knives and forks – a problem we solved by borrowing from the extremely nice and helpful people in the restaurant below the apartment. They also helped us solve the problem of the dead batteries in the TV remote, and helped with the lack of the promised wifi by inviting us to sit at their bar, enjoy a drink and use our Ipads there for as long as we liked.
Great place, friendly and professional service. Clean room and very convenient location. One teeny drawback -- it's loud on Friday night, and I wish I'd found the earplugs earlier. :)
The Apartment is FANTASTIC. I couldn't have found a better place/location to be for my trip. Thomas is a great contact and went out of his way to help with any questions I had. The AC unit was a lifesaver in this city summer heat! Great little kitchen perfect for making am coffee. LOTS of space so you don't feel cramped at all. Lots of sunlight with a great view. The bed gave me some of the best nights sleeps I've had in the city, it is the meat packing district so it WILL be noisy. Lots of club music, trucks, etc. but if you're looking to stay in that area you know what you're getting into! Lots of cabs and subways near by. Very close to restaurants and shopping and a Citi bike station is right around the corner.
I had a couple issues with water pressure while I was there, because it's an older building and things happen with plumbing. But everyone was so great with helping solve the issues. They run a tight ship there from check in to check out. I'd definitely stay again and recommend to anyone who is looking for the hustle and bustle of NYC.
We stayed for a week in June/July 2013. The location was fantastic and within walking distance to some of the most amazing restaurants in NYC. Pros - location, apartment size and comfortable bed. Cons - it's a two floor walk up which is difficult with luggage. It was very noisy at night because there are bars/clubs in the street so we needed to get some ear plugs. The room was not cleaned at all (even though the advertisement said it would be cleaned every three days). The most frustrating thing was the water pressure. The pressure was so bad that the water would just stop running!! The wifi also cut out after two days.
