We are both teachers of ESL. We love to travel, meet new people, and see new places, if you'll pardon the clichés.
Staying with Alex was fantastic. The apartment was situated just a few blocks from the M Train, and even though the M train doesn't run on weekends, there's another station nearby also.
We were easily able to travel in and out of the city, and even went to a bowling bar with Alex and his friends one night!
Overall, a really enjoyable experience. Thanks Alex!
Room pretty much matches the advertised description perfectly. Located in an interesting neighborhood in Queens. Very friendly cat. Also, Alex was a very accommodating and helpful host, and very quick to respond to my text messages.
My only non-positive comment would be that the M line, which takes you directly to Manhattan, doesn't run on the weekends, so it may take the unseasoned NY traveler quite a bit of time to get there through alternative routes (it took me roughly an hour).
Alex was great about getting us the key, and the bed was very comfortable. We only stayed long enough to sleep, but it was a great room for sleeping!
Affordable room within walking distance of M and L trains. An interesting Latino-Polish part of Queens near Brooklyn, though one Saturday the Ecuadorean disco below finished quite late. Friendly hosts and cat Monstar.
We stayed at Alex's Appartment for six nights with three guys.
It's not really big, not really hygienic, but definitely okay for it's price.
Alex is a nice and friendly host and the appartment is in a good distance for NYC and a good opportunity for tourists, just nothing if you don't like cats.
Alex was an extremely considerate and flexible host. He was very easy to get along with and helpful. I highly recommend this place as an excellent location, close to the L and M trains, that take you straight to the city, with plenty of privacy and comfort. A great bargain!
Unfortunately I didn't have much time to chat, but Alex was a great, hospitable host, and Monstah was probably the friendliest cat I've ever met. The building is a very easy walk from the train.
The place was as advertised and was very comfortable. Alex and Laura were great hosts and they even joined us for sushi one night!
Monstar is an adorable cat and although she sheds a lot, she also warms up to you pretty easily. I highly recommend their place for anyone looking to have an authentic New York experience without spending a fortune.
Alex and Laura, a young couple working as teachers in NY, came to Netherlands for a family visit in the South of the country (and to celebrate Alex' recent Bachelor graduation, congrats!) but also decided to go sightseeing in Amsterdam. It was my true pleasure to host these friendly and warm people in my house during their stay! They are experienced Airbnb travelers and used to be Airbnb hosts in NY, hence knowing the ins and outs already. Meeting with them was quite relaxed, and they quickly found their way in my apartment and also in Amsterdam. They left the apartment very clean and neat when they left and it was really nice to hear from them how their stay here triggered thoughts to maybe start hosting again in NY! Unfortunately they couldn't stay longer, but I look forward to hosting them again in the future if they'd knock the door. I can definitely recommend these 5 star guests positively to our other Airbnb hosts worldwide!! Thanks Alex and Laura for staying here and I wish you a merry x-mas with your family, enjoy Noord Brabant!!
Laura and Alex were extremely nice young people discovering the Europe. They were tidy, polite, friendly. I can say only positives about them. Highly recomended guests!
Alex & Laura are a very friendly and non-problematic couple. It was a pleisure to host them.
Alex and his partner were very considerate and polite guests. They were both interesting to talk to, and it was a pity we did not have much time . I would not hesitate to host them again, and greatly recommend to host them!
Great couple that just love to travel. Communicative, easy-to-get-along and genuinely nice. Highly recommended and hope to see them soon again.
Great couple! They are cheerful, easy to communicate with and opened to get know the city.
They left the apt. in perfect condition. I hope, anytime they are visiting Budapest, I can host them again.
Alex and Laura are nice and relaxed people, apartment was left very clean and tidy, communication was smooth and easy, I certainly do recommend them to other hosts! :)
Alex and Laura stayed with us for a few days and it was great having them as guests. They are open minded and we really enjoyed talking with them in our kitchen. They kept everything clean which we really appreciate. I can totally recommend them to anyone and I bet you'll have a good time with them as guests.
They didn't break anything and they did not leave a mess :)
I would not mind having them come around again.
Alex and Laura were very pleasant, quiet and nice guests. They are highly educated young people with whom you can talk about many topics. They were organized and interested in sights of Zagreb and Croatia, with an itinerary for every day.
They make a nice couple.
I would recommend having them as guests.
