I am a professional musician who plays percussion and love music with my heart.
We were satisfied, the room clean, the bathroom is also clean, very convenient location, 5 minutes to the subway. Recommended!
We had a very comfortable and relaxing stay. The room was cozy and clean. The location is convenient to the train. The host, Yusnier, was very friendly and sincere. We felt at ease. I would stay again. I really enjoyed the stay and appreciate the hospitality. Thank you!
Though we didn't have a chance to meet Yusnier personally, we really liked staying at his place. He replied without delays on airbnb and sent very clear details on how to find his place. The location is great: several supermarkets and small shops around, very close to the subway which takes you to the centre in 4-5 stops. The room was very nice and warm and we had an opportunity to use the kitchen. It's a perfect choice for a budget accomodation in NYC!
By far the best stay I've had. I was in this apartment for 14 days and I couldn't have been happier. The location was perfect! I loved that I could just go outside and around the corner there was a little store and restaurants all over. What had to be the best part about this location is how close the subway was. I was heading to manhattan nearly every single day and you had the choose of M and R and both of them took me where I need to go in less than 15-20 minutes. The bed was really comfy, the apartment was always warm, although the heater was loud from time to time but that didn't bother me. I didn't watch much TV but when I did there wasn't really many options. Olga was very nice and helpful when I arrived. It was a nice and convenient location.
We had a great experience staying at Yusnier's! Parking was no problem, the apartment was small but adequate (and clean), the bed was very comfortable. We were safe, warm, and happy. It was the perfect jumping off point to explore the city. We would definitely stay again! THANK YOU YUSNIER!
Yusnier's place is nice and conveniently close to to the metro... But if its your first trip to NYC then I recommend somewhere close to the city!!! Having said that Yusnier's place is very clean and homely...
Yusnier was fantastic. We loved the location and his apartment was very comfortable!
We stayed here for 10 days in Dec13/Jan14. Staying at Yusnier's smaller room was a very good decision, mostly because of the location (4-5 subway stops to Manhattan) and an affordable price.
Although the room is very small and basic, if you, like us, plan to stay 15h per day in the streets of the city, you don't need much more. The bed is extremely comfortable, room is slightly colder than the rest of the house, but not cold. However, heating is automatic and turns off during the night, so you can't do anything about it. It goes on again around 6 in the morning. Yusnier provided extra blanket so it was fine at any time. There's hot water all the time.
The apartment itself is clean, warm and cozy. Kitchen and bathroom are fully equipped. Yusnier changed our towels and bed-sheets once and I think he even cleaned up a few times while we were not there. House was generally clean, although this might depend a lot on your "flatmates" -- guests in the other room. We were quite lucky with that.
What we loved about the place was also the location -- safe and quiet Astoria, and at the same time only 4 subway stops from 5th Avenue. There's 0-24 supermarket 10 min walk from the house and Steinway subway stop is just a few blocks away.
Although we never saw Yusnier, we got an impression that he is responsible and takes seriously what is agreed with his guests.
If you don't mind modest (but comfy) accommodation, with great location and good price, we recommend this place.
Nice place to stay, offers hairdryer, towels and some useful books/maps about NewYork. A supermarket and metro is close by.
Yusniers flat is a good accomodation. It is clean, close to a subway station and therefore a good starting point to visit New York. It was a great time for us. We recommend it.
I know Yusnier for more than two years already. He is extremely responsive, organized and friendly, no worries when staying at his apartment; and if you are lucky enough you get to see him playing,he is one of a kind percussionist.
