Joe is super nice and helpful
Hola a todos,
Estuvimos 4 días y coincidimos muy poco con Joe porque nos íbamos pronto y llegábamos tarde, pero Joe hizo todo lo posible para ayudarnos en que hacer y que visitar. De hecho, dos semanas antes de ir a NY, por correo nos informó y se interesó de lo que íbamos a visitar para que aprovecháramos el tiempo al máximo.
El apartamento está bien situado para coger el metro o el bus. Muy tranquilo, silencioso y limpio. La cocina y el baño están bien equipados.
Omg I don't even know where to start ... From the beginning Joe was an amazing host. He was very attentive to what I wanted to do in the city and any help I may need. He gave me great money saving tips. I took the subway from JFK instead of a cab and that saved me a lot of money. The subway from his apt is fairly close .. I took the A train and the 3 train and they both left me about 2-3 blocks away on the same street where I'd get off. The neighborhood may look a bit on the shady side but it was very safe. I was traveling alone throughout my entire stay and I was coming back between 1-3 am and not once was I feeling scared. You do see NYPD patrolling the area so you have nothing to worry about. Obviously be careful but honestly it's a good location as long as you study the subway map and figure out how to use the trains to and from the city. You are about 20 min from most of the tourist locations in Manhattan. Joe is very good at helping you out and making sure you are doing ok. The room was perfect for me. It had exactly what I needed. I would definitely come back to stay here. My last day I wasn't going to be able to take my luggage Joe was very kind in letting me leave my stuff there until I was leaving. He really was a great host.
My stay with Joe went very smoothly. He's always willing to help you get where you're going or look for something to do. I wouldn't hesitate booking another stay next time I visit New York.
Joe was a helpful and welcoming host. From the moment I arrived he helped carry my luggage up to this apartment, provided me with US power adaptors and lots of info on the transport system and local sites. He really made me feel at home
Joe's apartment and the room itself were warm, clean and well-equiped for travellers. He openly shares his space and is respectful of the privacy of his guests
Joe is a fantastic host. He is super helpful, friendly, and considerate. He is willing to go the extra mile in order to make my stay more comfortable and convenient, and I believe that these small acts make me feel very welcomed in his place. I came there past midnight, but he still stayed up late and talked about his life. He taught me how to use the NY subway, and spares no small details such as how to use the shower heater properly, etc etc. Thank you for having me, Joe.
Joe was a very considerate host. He has all sorts of chargers and adapters, which really comes in handy for travelers from abroad. He also gave us some great suggestions about things to do in NYC and even taught me a little bit about computer programming. The apartment is in a part of town that tourists otherwise might not get to see, and I really enjoyed experiencing it. Next time I'm going to NYC, I'll airbnb with Joe again if possible.
My first airbnb- experience was just perfect. If you´re looking for an affordable yet central located place in the heart of New York City, Joe´s apartement is the place to be! Joe´s place is just 3 stations away from Broadway/Times Square. All important sights are easy to reach. Diners, Coffeeshops and supermarkets are just steps away. The room has everything you need, the bed is supercomfy, Joe is the greatest host you can imagine. He´ll give you information how to get to certain places, he makes sure you are happy with everything and he is a very nice and polite person. So, before spending your money on a shady low-budget hotel in NY, Joe´s room is the best alternative. Everything is just great about this place.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
