Having a loft space in New York with extra rooms to host
This was my first airbnb experience and I have a feeling any future bookings elsewhere will pale in comparison - Philip's apartment was awesome! My roommates were all great guys and the apartment is in the perfect location for Williamsburg and to hop into Manhattan, everything is as described in the listing. They cut me in on their life and they made me feel good! I would like to stay there again.
Philip is great with communication and answered my request very quickly. He is a really nice guy and a great host. Would absolutely suggest staying with them.
The two weeks I spent there were great! Phil, and the rest of the roommates were so nice, they help me a lot and make my arrival and my first days in NY so easy. The apartment is in a great location, very close to Bedford L line, shops, cafes, restaurants...heart of Williamsburg! I will repeat for sure!!
The apartment is great, and a fantastic bargain for the price. The main area is very spacious and well appointed, and the bedroom, though not huge, has the bed on a kind of mezzanine level so it does not take up any floor space. Plus there is the excitement of sleeping in a sort of raised den. The apartment has the sort of cool bohemian vibe you'd hope for from a place in Williamsburg, but without being at all squalid. It's also literally directly next to the Nitehawk cinema, a very exciting discovery for me when I arrived.
Philip is an excellent host. Friendly, undemanding, straightforward, and an extremely useful guide for New York--he's particularly helpful when it comes to finding the best places to eat in Williamsburg, an area overflowing with cafes, bars and restaurants. The other housemates are all also very friendly and easy to live with.
I highly recommend it as a place to stay in New York - I found it in an emergency after my previous host cancelled on me at the last minute, and I'm very glad I did. It added a great deal to my trip.
Philip was a wonderful guest. Couldn't have asked for better. Clean, responsible, and an an all around awesome person. He's is welcome to stay with me anytime :-)
Was great meeting Philip, really enjoyed him staying here.
Discreet, very respectful and great conversations!
Very pleasant encounter.
Ciao for now
