We are lovers of dance, good food, good friends, good books, yoga, and travel.
Although my room was tiny (this may be an issue for some), I made it into my own cozy and comfortable little home so I was very happy during my time there. This place has three wonderful advantages: 1) A little gym and laundry machines in the basement floor 2) The most beautiful view of Manhattan and the bridges from the roof and 3) The fact that it's in such a convenient location. It's pricey so it might be better for short term stays but I had a great time during my stay, met so many lovely roommates and Leslie is very sweet.
Leslie was a great host: very flexible, willing to help whenever I had questions and also fun to talk to.
The apartment's location was great: very close to the L & G trains, also a close to tons of bars, restaurants and a great view over Manhattan from the East River. The amenities were also very cool: laundromat, gym and amazing rooftop, maybe one of Williamsburg's most famous rooftops!
Now, for my experience: The lofted room I stayed at was exactly as described so no surprise here. But I was bothered by the lack of privacy in the apartment since we were 4 roommates in a small surface.
Nonetheless this is my personal experience and it does not interfere with Leslie's great qualities as a host.
Leslie is really a good host. She replied to our questions quickly and provided us with great details to get to her apartment. We spent two nights there. It's clean and cozy. Although it's not very private, it didn't bother us. But we are not quite accustomed to the loft bed:)
Great location, nice apartment. No lock for the room's door, thin walls, light curtains.
Leslie was great to deal with and very helpful at every step of the way. The apartment is nice and in a great location. I enjoyed my stay and would definitely stay here again.
Excellent host, friendly and flexible. Williamsburg is a great neighborhood! A perfect place to crash after walking around the city for three straight days. Highly recommended.
It was awesome to stay with Leslie. I really enjoyed meeting Leslie, her friends and the other travellers staying at her place. Leslie was really fast in replying to all my messages and she was so flexible about the check-in-time. Leslie is so used to having people around that she really made us feel like her flatmates for a couple of days. It's a great place to feel home far away from home :)
Subway connections to Manattan are good, there are a lot of cool places around on Bedford Avenue e.g. Free concerts @ Spikehill, boutiqes, restaurants etc.
great, clean, cozy, comfortable space. warm, welcoming, easy host. great price. no hassle. A+
Leslie's amazing apartment is just minutes away from the subway, and the best Williamsburg shops, restaurants, and bars. NYC residents never fail to impress me with how they manage interior spaces, and this room is a testament to that! I would recommend it to anyone who wants to experience a pleasantly, unique living space. This apartment compliments Brooklyn so well, and so does Leslie!
As this was my first experience in NYC, Leslie's place offered an extremely comfortable accommodation for 2 nights stay. The building is an old warehouse and very secure, and the neighborhood is excellent, just a short walk to the L train or M, J trains in Brooklyn. It was very easy to find, and easy to get across town to Manhattan via subway. Many great places to eat and drink up Bedford Ave. The apartment was very clean and bright and sunny while I was there, and although my visit with Leslie was brief, she was very pleasant and made sure I had everything I needed. It was a very unique experience that beats the price of a hotel room for a great stay in Brooklyn.
Everything was nice. These guests were very polite, accurate and kind.
I didn't meet Sahil but Leslie was a joy to host, with great conversation and company. She left the house in great shape and as a seasoned host herself, knew exactly how to take care of the house and leave it in great condition. Definitely recommended!
Leslie was a great guest, who left the place just as she found it. I would have her stay again anytime!
Leslie was no trouble at all, in fact we hardly noticed she was staying here at all. Hard working and self-sufficent, would happily host again.
Leslie & Co. were a pleasure to deal with and we hope to see more of them in the future!
