Yet again, after many visits to Afaliah's comfy and convenient apartment, she wins the hostess award. It is always a pleasure to stay with her.
As always, Afaliah is the consummate hostess. Can't recommend her too highly.
Afaliah was an amazing host. Helpful and gracious and respectful. The room was private and quiet and the location was also very convenient. It's very close to bus lines which can take you to the subway among other destinations, but it's a short walk to the subway and a shorter walk to Citibike stations, so it takes no time to get to Manhattan. There's also a CVS, grocery stores, laundromat and Fort Greene Park nearby.
Warm, convenient and welcoming, as usual. Afaliah and Will are perfect hosts.
I was a regular guest with Afaliah and Will: 15 times in the past 8 months. They were always welcoming and friendly. No problems, even though I momentarily lost track of the keys. (I see there is now a lost key policy.) If you choose to make a visit to NYC/Brooklyn and stay with them, expect the best of hospitality.
