I'm working and studying in New York. I love to travel and meet new people.
Ginger's place was awesome to stay at, right by the metro and a stone's throw away from the trendy Bedford Ave. Easy to get to the city and surrounding areas.

There was a missed connection that resulted in me not staying as planned, but Ginger was very responsive and friendly and is refunding the cost, so all is well. I would certainly book with Ginger again in the future!
Gingers flat and the room are super nice, clean and perfectly located in the city. I had a wonderful stay there. Thanks a lot!
Gingers place was awesome! Very cosy, comfortable and clean!
When I arrived she told me where to find the keys, I found a very clean appartment, although I just told her that I would come a few hours before, there were candles in the bathroom and my bedroom burning, everything shouted "WELCOME!". She invited me to have a beer and dinner with her friends in an upclose bar.
I had a great time! You should definitely stay here, it is clean, quiet, and super comfortable.
The location is fantastic too! Just a few blocks from bedford!
I will come back!
This was my first time staying anywhere on airbnb and I'm glad I chose that over a traditional hotel. Ginger's place was lovely & in a great neighbourhood and she was super thoughtful and helpful during our time there.
I had a fabulous time in Brooklyn with my brother at Gingers place in Bushwick! She was a great host that texted us during the night to make sure we were okay and she was offering suggestions as well!
Ginger's apartment was great, very central, close to subway, very clean and welcoming. We had a great stay with another young couple, very happy customers :)
Our stay was ok. We liked the location a lot and there are lots of murals and graffiti to be seen in the area. Very close to the metro and no need to transfer to get to Manhattan. Our first impression wasn't that great as we arrived to a stuffy apartment that hadn't been cleaned or arranged since Ginger had been on vacation (seeing that as a recurring theme now that I'm reading the other reviews more). We left our bags and by the time we came back it had been cleaned, but definitely is not a bright space as in the photos. The bedding seemed like it had been washed, but had a musty smell to it like it had been sitting for a long time. Not very nice. It wasn't clear from the description, but we ended up sharing the flat with other Airbnb guests. It would have been nice to know that since they ended up being disruptive (arguing and screaming at 4 or 5 am), but we were flexible. As for the room itself, it has ample storage space and hangers for your clothing. There are two windows, but one of them does not have a shade or blinds so it is kind of awkward to change in there. The windows are also quite drafty so we were cold some nights (Dec). We didn't find any breakfast that was described except some used milk. In the end we just used the space to sleep, and it was sufficient enough for that. Ginger was available for any concerns and was great at communicating.
Ginger's flat is nicely decorated, lighty, clean and located in a street not so noisy for NYC. Also, the closest "Marcy Av." metro is perfect to reach all Manhattan. Wifi provided is working well. Kitchen and bathroom are small but clean and functionnal. The heating system is quite noisy when it starts periodically, but efficient. Also, Ginger was always available to answer our questions. Also, tea and granola for guests are some sweet attentions!
The rented room is small, functionnal as well. As we arrived late the first night, it was a just a pleasure having the bed already dressed!
The few drawbacks were about finding a dusty room, and a former-white linen covered with stains and few hair, even washed (not sure in fact O_o'). Also, the roomate was often acting as if she's alone in the appartment.
To conclude, this flat renting is worth, and the few drawbacks are not that annoying! Go for it :)
Arrivée le soir et avons dû attendre pour avoir les clés de l'apt.
L'accueil a été agréable mais les photos de l'apt sont trompeuses.
Il faisait très froid et même glacial dans le séjour et le coin à manger.
quand à la propreté.. c'était (website hidden) cuisne avait de la vaisselle sale dans l'évier , la cuisinière on n'en parle pas et même la cafetière italienne était sale,,,, sympa pour se faire juste un café...le dexième matin pas d'eau chaude ..
Très déçus du tout, nous sommes partis et avons trouvé un hôtel sans problème...
Ginger and her Mom were wonderful guests! Since we were all airbnb hosts as well as guests we shared many good stories about the fun and interesting people we have met and the places we had visited. We hope that they will stay with us again if they are in the area.
Thanks Ginger for beeing a lovely and warm host. It was great to stay. Also so easy and close to all what you want from a short or long stay in New York. Bushwick rules with the nicest peruvian (Chimu Express), Italian (Roberta) and Japanese (Momo) food. Don't miss breakfast at Tina's Restaurant. We warmly recommend this cosy room. Aleks & My
Ginger is a perfect hostess. She is so sweet and accommodating and a pleasure to be around. She makes everyone who comes into her apartment feel comfortable and at home. The apartment is fabulous! It is brand new and stylishly put together, and she keeps it very clean. It is located in the up and coming neighborhood of Bushwick which is being infused with fresh artistic energy and a few cool bars, restaurants, and coffee shops off the beaten track. The views of the Manhattan skyline from the rooftop are extraordinary- the perfect setting for a glass of wine. You'll be sure to enjoy your stay here!
I would have to say the Ginger is one of the most hospitable hosts! She goes out of her way to make it nothing but a great stay. She apartment is very quaint and clean as well! You will not be disappointed. I plan to stay there when i visit next. :)
I've stayed with Ginger on multiple occasions while passing through New York City. I always hope she has space available when I am in town, because she is such a lovely hostess and keeps her accommodations so clean, warm and inviting. Her experiences as both a New York resident and a worldwide traveler make her a valuable reference source for visitors; both domestic and foreign alike.
Ginger goes above and beyond to make her guests happy. She's incredibly accommodating and her sweet smiles make for a homey space. She pays attention to the small things and is very generous with her expendables - what's mine is yours kind of thing. The apartment is always clean, and she provides clean linens and towels to guests when the first arrive. If you don't fancy fending for yourself Ginger has good knowledge of both the local neighborhood and the city so can suggest plenty for you to do. Say high from me if you visit, tell her Julian misses her.
