We stayed at Joe´s place for 4 night, booked 5 nights but decided to go to Atlantic City the last night. The stay was all in all good and Joe was very helpfull in providing maps of Manhatten and guidbooks. He also showed us what areas we should go to and where the different attractions was. There is a subway station only one block from his place, that will take you to Times Square with express train. So it may seem a bit far from downtown Manhatten, but it goes quicly to get downtown.
For us the noice from the street also was a bit loud, there was fire trucks and police cars going past all night with sirens on.
To sum up, could be cleaner and could have been told about the other people renting in the apartment, but location is great (never felt uncomfortable during the day or night). Its a place to sleep in NYC but not a place to have a relaxing evening.
The apartment was excellent - clean and comfortable. Joe could not have been more helpful - very friendly and proactively giving advice and directions around the city. If you want somewhere decent to stay, then book here. I'll definitely book again whenever I'm back!
Joe is a very nice host.He is friendly person.

He provide targeted directions. Apartment is very clean and just as in the pictures
It was great! Thanks Joe. You are a perfect host.
Joe is a very nice host. He works hard to understand your individual needs and provide targeted directions. He also carried our backpack up.
I really liked my stay at Joe's. The place is just as in the pictures. The bed is very comfortable. The bathroom and kitchen are real clean. I especially liked that breakfast (milk and cereal) is included, given that I had to leave early. Joe is also very helpful in suggesting things to do in the city.
Joe is very cordial and friendly person. He made sure that we enjoy our stay at his place. This place has good bus and sub connectivity.
Apartment is very clean. The welcoming process is very structured and super friendly. Joe really got this figured out. I used the metro go get to the place. Worked really well. Great deal overall!
Joe was an amazing host. He even got us tickets to a tv show.
Joe is such a nice guy--a very gracious and accommodating host! He creates a very comfortable and friendly environment, offering up his home as yours. He's attentive to your needs and makes sure you're equipped for your traveling purposes. You have your own set of keys to the apartment building, the unit AND the bedroom and makes it easy to check in/out at your convenience. A subway map was provided (along with personal insight not available from mapping apps), and he was ready to provide recommendations for what to do/where to go. From what I saw, everything was clean and ready to go.
The area was as expected. Building is secure and not too much noise or activity. Walking around at night was obviously more intimidating as the surroundings were unfamiliar, but no apparent threats were detected. I would definitely book with Joe again!
