I'm a graduate student at the School of Visual Arts pursuing an MFA in Interaction Design. I moved to New York last Fall. I love to rock climb, take pictures, and explore the city.

First, the location is absolutely perfect. Love the neighborhood it is in. There is so much to do and everything you need is just within a few blocks. When needed public transportation is very accessible to where the apartment is. Citibike station is also just across the street.
The room is spacious, bright and as quiet as it gets living in Manhattan. The flat is very clean and well decorated.
Ben is a very generous and good host. He accommodated with our tight scheduling and made us feel at home. I definitely recommend this awesome accommodation!
Benjamin's place is in such a fabulous location! It was cosy, well appointed and easily accessible with our 9 month old babe and pram. Benjamin was a super host, very easy to contact and super helpful.
The apartment is beautiful . Great place and everything was ok. Benjamín is polite and help with everything I need.
Professional and courteous. Sorry but it could have been cleaner.
We had a great experience staying in Benjamin's stylish apartment. It's in a great location, close to several subway lines, lots of great places to eat and the bottom of the High Line. It's amazingly quiet given its location close to a busy intersection. Both the bed and the fold-out couch were very comfortable, and the kitchen was very well-appointed. Benjamin was a great host, providing us with excellent recommendations for places to eat, and graciously accommodating our request to check in early. Big thumbs-up! We only checked out yesterday, but we've already recommended it to my brother-in-law.
Benjamin was great to work with. Place is sweet and comfortable.
This place is great! The place has so much light and is was really fun to stay in. The bed and couch are super comfy and the kitchen has great equipment. I was so happy to be there, but also so happy to be so close to the best neighborhood in the city. The West Village is SO adorable and being able to explore it and be so close to home was amazing.
I highly recommend this place!
Benjamin's apartment is perfect! I could not have asked for anything more. A block away from the subway, a cozy wine bar downstairs, and two boots pizza on the corner. The living room is spacious, great for putting your feet up after a long day of walking around the city. The kitchen begs to be cooked in with top notch appliances and ample counter space. Benjamin was an incredible host, provided me with maps, recommendations for restaurants and even had travel sized bottles of fancy bath products placed in the bathroom for me. All around splendid experience and would choose this apartment over hundred of others.
Great little apartment in the heart of the west Village close to everything including good coffee.
Great soft big bed wonderful.
Safe secure and fab. Would recommend.
Excellent location. Set in the heart of Greenwich Village and just a 5min walk to The Meat Packing District - you couldn't get better. The location made our trip what it was - no doubt. The flat internally was quiet and thankfully had air conditioning. Bengamin himself was a really nice guy and made every attempt to make our NY experience comfortable. The flat was neat, clean and compact but there were a few key essentials that we would have liked but they did not impact our overall experience (kettle, microwave,TV). The building is beautiful and quiet despite being close to a main road and the lift was a welcome reprieve at the end of each day after pounding the high streets. There is a cute French wine bar under the buidling so you will never be stuck without a drink! Will certainly recomend to friends
Benjamin was a great houseguest. He was a pleasure to host and we'd have him back again. Enjoyed having coffee together a few times during his stay - fun guy and very courteous housemate!
Benjamin and I met at School of Visual Arts in 2010, where we were both students in an MFA program together. We bonded over sleep deprivation (SVA is intense) and rock climbing and have spent many, many hours together in the gym. I've had the occasion to visit Benjamin's apartment and love it. It's a perfect West Village 1-bedroom, well-appointed and close to everything. I also know that Benjamin is a great host, since I gave him tips on designing his "Welcome to the Apartment and the Neighborhood" guide and map. You're sure to have a pleasant visit when staying at his place!
Benjamin's a great guy. I've never had a dull conversation with him and he always get you thinking in different directions and outside your head. Am looking forward to some hikes and mountaineering trips in the future!
I'm a design professional and I live on the Upper East side of NYC. I visit Benjamin's apartment often to hang out and relax in one of my other favorite neighborhoods in New York. It really is perfect! The location, the furnishing and decor are all fabulous. On top of all of that it's clean and bright. The location is near the subway and the West Village is a great place to go out and enjoy the city. If you're considering staying at Ben's, don't think twice! You will love it.
I am a long time friend of Benjamin's from Seattle, WA. I've traveled extensively with him and have known him over the course of 4 different housing situations. He is neat, organized and respectful of all of his living environments. I had the pleasure of visiting him in NYC last fall. The apartment is cute, clean and perfectly located. I'll stay there every time I visit NYC without a doubt.
