The place is just kind of weird. It's clear that no one lives there full time, and so it's not in great shape. The furniture is cheap or broken, the beds are uncomfortable, and the television only gets like 4 channels. Communicating with the hosts is strange--you are referred from one to another, and they are less than welcoming in their communication. However, if you are on a budget and looking for a place to stay in Alphabet City, it's not the worst place in the world. I won't stay here again though.
L'appartement est bien situé, dans alphabet city à 7-10min du métro 2nd Avenue. Pour le reste, comme souvent pour ce type d'appartements, non ou peu rénové, il est bruyant ; on a l'impression que les fenêtres sont ouvertes tant tout cela est mal isolé. Mais on n'a pas eu froid ni trop chaud. La propreté était approximative à notre arrivée et le lavabo de sdbain, sans être vraiment bouché a un écoulement très déficient, et une porte de placard qui vous reste en main quand on l'ouvre. Apt prévu pour 6 et là c'est vraiment limite (heureusement nous étions 4, et quand même à l'étroit). Une fois les lits dépliés, plus beaucoup d'espace, et 5 assiettes, 3 verres à vin, 3 verres à eau, 4 mugs, et surtout une table à manger de ...2 places.
Nos hotes sont surement sympa mais nous ne les avons pas vus, tout s'est fait à distance, prise et remise des clés dans le deli ouvert 24/24 à 15 metres.
The apartment is as pictured and was a good amount of space for our family of three. It wasn't as clean as we expect but it was tidy. The hosts were responsive and, although I was confused at times by the fact there are five of them, we had no issues at all obtaining a key and getting information. You'll get a lot of street noise sleeping in the living room (where the window aircon unit lets sound in), but I guess that's part of the deal when you want to pretend to live in New York City for a few days. We've stayed in plenty of hotels in NYC over the years where noise and cleanliness aren't an issue, but overall, we're glad we tried this once. It's a fun neighbourhood and a great base if you want to spend time in both Manhattan and Brooklyn.

Great place, extremely clean and a great location. The hosts were very accommodating, we would definitely stay again!
It was a decent apartment in a great building in an amazing location. The apartment could have felt cleaner, especially in terms of bedsheets and pillows. On reflection, it wasn't such a bargain and perhaps I would prefer to pay only a bit more and stay at the Thomson or Rivington hotels in same East Village / LES area. There is still a value to experiencing apartment life in Manhattan. Finally, the hosts were gracious and in constant communication.
I loved the apartment, the neighborhood and the hosts.
I enjoyed paying to stay at the listing.
Great value in the heart of Alphabet City! Very easy to work with!
L'appartement est exactement comme il apparait sur les photos, des pièces de belles dimensions pour NYC. Le quartier est sympa avec tout ce qu'il faut à proximité.
La remise des clefs et l'échange avec la propriétaire ce sont très bien passés.
J'y reviendrai à coup sûr.
