Benjamin's provided straightforward instructions for finding and retrieving keys to his place. His place is a well-decorated, private, and was perfect for a short stay in NYC. Plus the neighborhood is great!
Overall, the experience was positive, but we had three minor things we wish we knew before booking:
1) He says in the listing that linens are included, but in the "House Rules" email he asks that you wash the towels/linens you use at the laundromat down the block--as a result we ended up just bringing sleeping bags and our own bath towels, which was kind of a pain.
2) Whoever sleeps on the sofa should be prepared for a couple encounters with a furry cat over the course of the night. Jerry is a nice cat, but this could be an issue for some people.
3) He keeps the kitty litter in the shower, so you'll have to move that if you want to wash up.
Overall, we were content with the place and if the price is right I'd recommend it.
The reservation was canceled 2 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
My stay at Ben's was pretty good. Ben was very helpful in giving directions to the apartment. The apartment itself is as advertised, so that was good. The neighborhood was ok. I'm not really a cat person so I didn't necessarily enjoy Jerry but other than that the overall experience was good.
Nice clean place exactly as described. Ben wasn't around when I was visiting but he was very quick to reply to any questions I had. The cat, Jerry is super friendly and no trouble at all. Overall, I had a great visit and would rent from Ben again in the future.
I had a nice stay at Benjamin's place. The cat is cute and the place is really quiet which is unusual for NYC, so I slept very well.
My boyfriend and I rented this appartment to stay in for the weekend while I attended a wedding in Manhattan. It was by far the best experience I have ever had traveling to NYC. Ben was supper easy to work with and communicate with. He was available to answer any questions we had and has some wonderful recommendations. The apartment itself is less than a 5 min walk from the subway, which made commuting to Manhattan as easy as pie. The apartment was clean, well organized and a delight to stay in. Our favorite part though had to be the extra bonus of having a temporary cat for the weekend! Jerry is the most cuddly adorable creature I have ever come across. He loves to play and sleep curled up in your arms. He's such a love! Can't say enough good things about this experience....we were so enchanted that we are hoping to spend our next weekend trip visiting at Ben's with Jerry again. 5 Stars and Two Thumbs Up!!!!!
It was first time we used Airbnb service. The experience spent at Benjamin was enjoyable. The studio is clean, well organized and equipped, for which we felt like at home. Subway station that connects with Manhattan is very close, as well as grocery stores with good prices.
Jerry was a good friend and we had very much to him. Ben helped and gave us all the information we needed to have a pleasant stay.
The conclusion is that we recommend with confidence the location and hopefully we will be back there :)
This was our first time using Airbnb and it was a positive experience thanks to Benjamin (and Jerry the cat). Although we did not meet Benjamin, he left clear instructions on check-in and key retrieval. Benjamin was easy to reach and super understanding about our late check-out. We chose this apartment mainly for its location and, as others have mentioned, bus/subway and local markets are just a few minutes away and easy to reach. The building is quiet and secure. Having laundry facilities on the premises is also a nice bonus. The apartment is very clean and although we didn't utilize the kitchen except to make some tea, everything you would need is readily available and well organized. Small fridge also available. Bathroom is spotless, water pressure and heat is excellent! Overall our stay was fantastic, no complaints.
My boyfriend and I had the best time at Ben's studio! It's adorable, quiet, and has amazing heat (my apartment doesn't, so it was a nice change!). There are also tons of books and movies in so many genres, which was cool.
Ben was a fantastic host and always answered my questions promptly. To top it all off, Jerry is so affectionate and definitely the sweetest cat I've ever met.
Benjamin was an incredible host! he was extremely diligent about communication and our comfort was his first priority.
the space is small but, by New York standards, VERY comfortable. kitchen, bathroom, wifi AND a computer. plus it's only a second floor walkup - a true NYC luxury! you're in the heart of the up and coming art scene in Bushwick and within walking distance to some amazing places: Roberta's, Dun-Well Donuts (vegan!), Shinobi Ramen and the best vintage thrift store in Brooklyn, Urban Jungle. train is less than 5 minute walk away.
thanks again, Benjamin, for being so flexible with our extension. looking forward to you hosting us again!
Ben was a great guest! Welcomed anytime.

Benjamin is a wonderful host! He knows how to take care of his guests and can make anyone feel at home! His apartment is well located and has everything that you need. I can't wait to visit Ben again!
