We spent 6 nights in Benjamins apartment and everything was exactly as expected. Benjamin did welcome us in person, and after that we communicating via SMS. The totally fell in love with the Greenwich Village area, and can recommend the following if you are to stay in the apartment: The Sweet Revenge on Carmine Street (Combining cup cakes and alcohol :-)), HUB (Hudson Urban BikeRental) 139 Charles St, Umami Burger just around the corner on 6th avenue and a visit in New Yorks oldest pharmacy C.O. Bigelow. Will definitely recommend the place to my friends and family.
Our stay at Ben's appartment was nice. Everything we needed was there. Even if we didn't met Ben we had a great welcome by his friend. The room was just perfect for our short trip to NYC :)
Great apartment and wonderful location. Benjamin was an awesome host and provided everything we needed to have a comfortable stay. He was also gracious enough to allow us to keep our luggage in the apartment until we needed to leave for our evening flight. I would highly recommend this rental!
Comfortable place. Spacious and quiet common area, nice ambient.
Great flatmates, helpful and very attentive. I had a great time.
I stayed in Benjamin's apartment for three months while doing an internship in NYC. It was my first time using Air Bnb, and Benjamin was awesome. I couldn't have asked for a better host. I have full confidence using Air Bnb in the future thanks to Benjamin.
The apartment itself has exactly what you need, and is always well kept. I didn't have any complaints for Benjamin during my entire stay, it was great. The neighborhood is good for commuting into the city (30 minute train ride to Times Square), and is next door to Duane Reade, Dunkin Donuts, and Subway. Perfect for someone on the go.
Fantastic studio in a really great part of greenwich village. The apartment was exactly as advertised: bright, colorful, and very clean.
I had actually booked this location with Ben for Monday -Wednesday of the week I was staying, and at the last minute I realized I would also need a place to stay the Sunday before. While this studio was already booked for Sunday night, Ben very graciously offered me another place in the same building for Sunday night. He's a fantastic host, who went above and beyond to accommodate me.
Would highly recommend both this place and Ben as a host!
The reservation was canceled 6 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Ben was as accommodating a host as I could ask for for my first AirBnB experience. So much so that he offered me this apartment, no fuss, no hassle when I needed a place to stay for an extra day despite having booked a room in the same building for later in the week. The apartment was thoroughly cleaned and I felt extremely comfortable during my stay.
I would highly recommend Ben as a host and would most definitely look to booking a place with Ben when I'm next in NYC.
The apartment was clean, comfortable, well located and overall great!! Our hosts were friendly and made us feel welcome. This was a wonderful place to stay for the weekend and made our trip easy :) thanks!!
My husband and I really enjoyed our one night stay at Benjamin's studio apartment. Location, location, location!! It is so close to everything - subway station, several convenience stores, and plenty of restaurants. It seems like all of the good restaurants are all located here. It's also very close to the beautiful Washington Square Park. The apartment has a newly renovated and very clean kitchen and bathroom. Benjamin was there to greet us and was always quick to respond via text. We like the flexibility of check in and check out times. We would definitely recommend this place!
Benjamin rented my apartment for two friends visiting the city for 2 nights.
Great guests, left the apartment clean, good communication. I would have them back anytime.
Great guy and great guest. Definitely recommended!
Benjamin and Amber are absolute legends. We thoroughly enjoyed having them around and in fact were truly sad to see them leave, we could have done with a longer visit! They are always welcome back whenever they're in London and we highly recommend them to any host here.
Benjamin and his girlfriend stayed for just a short night after they missed their flight, so I didn't get to meet them very well. They were nice and I would host them again if they were in town.
It was a pleasure to welcome Benjamin and his friends! More than welcomed again!
These guys are amazing. Was a great experience to have them in the studio.
Great guest, no problem at all, warmly recommended
They are highly recommended! Very respectable, kind, quiet. Everything you could ask for in a guest! Even though i did not have the chance to meet them, my husband stated that you will be lucky to have them as a guest.
I stayed at Benjamin's place in Boro Park, Brooklyn for an extended period of time. He was very prompt getting back to me when I first inquired about the apartment which I appreciated because I was pressed to find a place quickly. The apartment was everything he described in the listing. This apartment was in the basement of a private home and so I was also able to meet the owner. They were both great to work with. They followed up to be sure everything was okay (which it was) and to see if I needed anything to make my stay better. I would definitely recommend Benjamin to anyone looking to use airbnb to find a place to stay. All around a great experience for me.
Ben is a good find. While I was hunting for permanent residency in NYC (which I found before I needed his help), ben was great with fast responses and accurate and honest information. He seems to honestly want to help people make the transitions that they need, and he has the equal hustle to make it happen in an efficient and professional mannor.
Ask him about transhumanism sometime!
Charming, entertaining, insightful, Friendly, awesome cook. Look no
Further for a great host! He's truly wonderful!
Known Ben for over 6 years now, and I can say that he is one of the most caring people you are gonna meet. He is big on communication, and leaves nothing to guessing, which is perfect for travelers, as guessing is the last thing you want to be doing in a new locale.
If your looking for a host with not only great accommodations, but also great conversation, Ben is the guy. He is a talented musician, passionate about many worldly topics, and loves to learn from other people.
Take a look at his (website hidden) or other profiles. Having so many friends doesn't come by accident. He is one of those special few that people feel like they have known for years, even on the first encounter. People are drawn to him, and feel comfortable calling him a true 'friend' quickly.
All in all, a model airbnb-er and someone you will have no regrets staying with.
Although I was only in town for one night, the time I spent at Ben and Brent's place was one of the little highlights of my trip. Ben is an intelligent, caring and open person. I'm quite inspired by what the guys are doing, and I hope to visit again sometime in the future on my travels!
Ben is a pleasure to be around. Has lots of interesting thoughts to share and is a great person to talk to. He has a kind heart and empathizes with others. Gets things done promptly and is very goal orientated. Genuinely a nice person.
Awesome host. Nice place to stay if you're in town. Friendly guests too
Ben is an awesome person to know in NYC. He is open to learn from all types of people, and is kind, generous, and hospitable. You won't regret meeting Ben!
I have known Benjamin since he was in middle school. I was his teacher and his Choirmaster over many of those years, and we have remained good friends ever since. We have been on quite a few choir tours to cities around the country. He is a warm, trustworthy and thoughtful fellow, and I am sure that he will be both a very gracious host, and a very considerate guest.
A great guy! He and Brent were great hosts, made me right at home, and I truly hope to see them again!
