Nous étions 7, en famille et avons tous été enchantes de notre sejour chez Lisel.
Les chambres étaient propres et spacieuses. Nous avions quasiment la maison pour nous tout seuls car Lisel est très discrète. Quand elle était la, c'était un plaisir de discuter et d'échanger avec elle.
Le quartier autour de la maison est plein de magasins et de restaurants, très agréable et sécuritaire et il est possible de se rendre à peu près partout dans Manhattan sans changer de ligne de metro et de manière très rapide.
Un endroit idéal que nous recommandons à tous.
If you like Brooklyn, if you like Haiti, if you care, if you like sharing, talking, connecting, cooking, chilling, please join this house in this great neighbourhood. Enjoy the sun in the backyard, have a chat with the activist-host on new forms of social economy, or on how to save the world vol.3, and then go sip some hip coffee on the swedish espresso bar nextdoor.
Lisel made us feel like home. She was very flexible with our schedule and very helpful. We had a room with two beds and we shared kitchen and bathroom. Bathroom was super clean and the kitchen had everything we needed for cooking. The backyard was great. The room was not exactly as in the pictures regarding furniture and the wall needs painting, everything looks much more worn and old. Anyway, it is in a nice neighborhood, with lots of restaurants and very close to multiple subway stations.
We differ with this guest's response. She is a scientist so details are perhaps her forte. From our point of view the review sounds very negative and we never had such feedback.
We added another bed only, and there is no changed furniture in the room, just a change of additional bed.
Lisel was really hospitable! We checked in a little late but she settled us down really quickly and showed us around her place :) the room looks exactly like the ones in the picture. The common kitchen is free for all to use!
Do you remember those days when you were backpacking through Asia/Europe/South America etc and you stayed at a really cool hostel? This is what Lisel's place remember me off . Everyone was lovely. There are a lot of shared facilities (bathroom, kitchen etc) and you can come and go as you please.
Staying with Lisel was great.
The house is really cool and the room is super convenient and private because it is right as you enter the front hallway.
We had 2 big comfortable beds.
There are all kinds of extra amenities in the kitchen - and a relaxing back porch.
It has a great location - 2 minutes from Gorilla Coffee and a 5 min. walk from the Barkley Center and the Metro!
I miss it already!
