We don't have many rules! On your arrival, we will give you a set of keys to the apartment. You are free to come and go as you please; there is no curfew.
We will not enter your room while you are staying with us unless you ask us to. We will handle all of the cleaning when you leave. No need to strip the bed or anything like that before you leave. For longer stays (one week or more), we can replace your towels for you during your stay if you like.
If you are flying, it is helpful if you give us your airline and flight number before you leave. That way, if your flight is delayed, but you can't call because you are in the air, we can check your flight status online and plan accordingly.
Our only real "house rules" are that we don't allow, illegal drug use, or pets. We work early in the morning and party outside the apartment. We look forward to hosting you!
Maja is a great host, and her apartment is spacious, clean, conveniently located close to a subway station and within walking distance to the East Village. Definitely recommended :)
Room was as advertised. Maja was quite friendly, and even gave me her keys when the first set didn't open the front door easily. Would stay again.
Maja's apartment is great value for a stay in New York. She is a very accommodating host - was very flexible about check-in/check-out times and answered questions very promptly. The apartment is conveniently located extremely close to a subway station and is within walking distance of all of lower Manhattan.
The only issues we had were that the wifi was not working very well and that the toilet in the bathroom was not very good. These issues affected our overall experience a little, but we still enjoyed staying at Maja's apartment and recommend it to others.
Klasse Wohnung mitten in Chinatown! Sehr sauber, zwar kleines aber top Zimmer! Wohnung ist im 2. Stock, Aufzug gibts zwar keinen aber ist kein großer Akt :)
Wohnung ist direkt an der Subway Linie F, Station "East Broadway". Sehr geschickt um tagsüber und auch nachts durch NYC zu kurven ;)
Danke für alles, sehr freundlicher Kontakt ich würde die Bude sofort wieder buchen!! :)
We had a great time! The apartment is in a great location, clean, & the room mates are super nice. I felt like I was at home :)
