I'm a high school teacher in NYC. I enjoy biking, swimming, hiking, fishing--the outdoors. Books, movies, music & museums in NYC are great too!
Nous revenons tout juste de notre séjour de 10 jours à NYC, où nous étions logés dans le studio de Karen que nous recommandons vivement. Tout d’abord Karen est une hôte exceptionnelle, aux petits soins et toujours à l’écoute. Après un accueil très chaleureux (des petits muffins "fait maison" nous attendaient), elle a toujours été disponible et est de bons conseils. Nous avons eu des soucis avec nos bagages que nous avons reçus 28h après notre arrivée, et elle nous a aidé à contacter l’aéroport et a mis à notre disposition tout le nécessaire en attendant. Concernant l’appartement, il est très agréable (conforme aux photos), très propre et dispose de tout le confort que nous pourrions retrouver à l’hôtel (draps, serviettes, snacks, wifi,…). De plus, le lit est très confortable et le studio est très calme pour NYC ! Les WC sont effectivement sur le palier mais sont très propres, et nous étions que 2 à les partager dons ce n’était pas gênant du tout. Enfin, concernant la situation, il est situé à Chinatown, mais plutôt à la limite des quartiers de Nolita et de Soho (et 20 min à pied de Greenwich) donc des quartiers très sympas, que nous avons adorés pour les petits bars et restaurants très cool et branchés ! Le studio est également situé à 5 min du métro Grand Street qui dessert très bien la ville. Pour conclure, we would recommend staying here to anyone and we would stay at Karen’s studio again ! With the price, it’s the best deal in all of Manhattan ;-) Thanks for everything Karen.

We stayed in Karen studio for a week, and it was great. We had a few issues at the start but Karen sorted them out instantly, she was great.
The studio looks exactly like the images, very cute and very clean and tidy.
Great location for subway and walking over Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges.
Karen gave us loads of advice on local restaurants, and things to do.
She also gave an Internet wifi hub that we could take with us all over the city which was great, and very handy for (website hidden) maps and internet.
A great place to stay.
We had a wonderful time staying in Karen's studio! Her space was so bright and open, with a truly inviting atmosphere, and super clean. Karen was an excellent host. She provided tons of information in the studio to make our trip more enjoyable, was reachable and quick to respond when we needed help, and even had fresh muffins waiting for us when we arrived. The bed in the studio was extremely comfortable. We also loved being able to open the windows in the morning and sip coffee while overlooking Chinatown rooftops and the Manhattan bridge. The studio's location can't be beat. You are minutes from the Grand St. subway station in the fascinating, bustling Chinatown neighborhood. It's worth mentioning that we always felt very safe walking to and from the subway late at night in this area. We would stay at Karen's studio again in a heartbeat, and with the price, it just might be the best deal in all of Manhattan ;)
Karen's apartment is perfectly well located, in the heart of Chinatown, close to everything. The apartment was super clean, cosy and Karen was always available to answer questions. I highly recommend Karen's place.
I stayed in Karens studio for three weeks. Everything was absolutely fantastic. The location was perfect, the bed was comfortable, the shower was warm, and the studio as a whole couldn't have been cozier. I would recommend staying here to anyone. Karen is such a great host and will be there to help with any questions right away. I can't wait to stay there again.
Staying in Karen's loft was one of the best parts of our vacation to NY. It was the perfect location - right around the corner from the subway, a short walk to our friends' apartment, and directly above one of the best dumplings shops in the city (Prosperity Dumpling). It was clean, quaint, and provided us with everything we need. Thank you, Karen!
We had a wonderful time in Karen' studio. It was clean and very well located. Karen tooke care of everything, she prepared the studio for us (even muffins and milk in the fridge!!) and she had been always available.
We hope to return soon !
I stayed at Karen's studio with my boyfriend for 6 nights. The loft looks just like it does in the pictures, it's very quaint and adorable, and conveniently situated. It's a 5-20 minute walk to the station depending on which line you're going to (F, N, Q, 6). Karen was quick to help us when there were problems, and unfortunately there were. The bath water didn't run hot water for long and the ceiling started leaking after a whole day of rain. But Karen was right on top of it and even offered to refund us half the trip and let us stay at her studio, which was far more than what we expected. Overall, it was a wonderful stay and we understand the problems were not something Karen would've expected, so 5/5 would stay again.
I did not have the pleasure of meeting Karen but can say that she was a very self sufficient guest who took advantage of the bike to explore the Island. She also left the apartment very tidy. I would be happy to host Karen in the future.
