We like very clean and respectful guest. Also the apartment is NON-smoking, but you can smoke outside.
Our host was great. We felt very welcome and comfortable. It was a nice neighbourhood and only a five minute walk to the subway which we used every day to explore NYC.
I met Yoissy a few days before our arrival, and she was lovely. I didnt see her during our stay as she was away, but we always kept in touch. She was a great host, she left a very detailed note about all the things we needed to know about the appartment and the area, and she also made copies of the keys so we could have more than one set for all of us.
The appartment is absolutely lovely, very clean, spacious, and looks just like the pictures : warm, cozy, peaceful, and the location is amazing. Astoria is a great area, with plenty of restaurants and groceries a few steps away. The roofdeck also has an amazing view on Manhattan, beautiful at sunset time.
We had an AMAZING stay, Thanks Yoissy :)
Apartment is exactly as in picture. Everything was very clean and the neighborhood offers close-by supermarkets, restaurants and laundromats.
Our host, Yoissy, gave us continuous feedback and information.
We had a great time and felt right at home!
Because I believe that people are basically good i'm couchsurfer and now part of the airbnb community. We are a nomad family, originally from Chile, who are currently living in NYC. I'm ceramist and mom... so, my days consist of a mixture of playing with playdough and clay.
