Lovely host, great location!
The place is a retreat from the monotony of outside world. Its loaded with character that can only be experienced.
I feel fortunate to be welcomed into Rico's dwelling and have the opportunity to chat with him. I enjoyed sharing our life experiences. Very cool, unique, non-judgmental individual who can get along with just about anyone. If you have a problem with Rico you need some serious psychological help. Hes one of the kindest human beings you will ever meet.
I would stay here again without question and plan on doing so next time I'm in this neck of the woods.
I spend 10 days with Rico and the others and I had a great time. Everybody was super-friendly and I was feeling more like one of the flatmates rather than just a temporary guest.
The apartment is very close to both Montrose Av. and Morgan Av. subway lines (10-15 minutes to Manhattan) and there's a good selection of cafes, restaurants etc. 2-3 minutes walking distance.
I highly recommend you to stay at Rico's.
Fantastic stay with Rico and co, everyone was friendly and made us feel right at home. The space is convenient to a few trains and the food in the neighborhood is damn fine. Mckibbin itself is known as an 'art loft', so expect a bohemian vibe and music at all times of the night elsewhere in the building. Embrace it. Be sure to take a moment to walk through the loft, I found a bowl full of plastic trophies, a vintage copy of The Dazzler and a pheasant :)
This was my first experience on airbnb, and I was very fortunate to have Rico as my first host. Rico along with everyone else at the loft was very nice an open to conversation. He is a great person with a lot of cool stories. His place is awesome full of creativity. The location is great because it is close by the L train. I highly recommend staying at Rico's if you plan a visit to New York.
We spent five days at Rico's apartment with our 7 years child. Rico is a very nice person, he took care of us very well.
The building and his place are full of great people with whom you have pleasure to discuss and share.
Rico was an awesome guest and made my friend and I feel incredibly welcome while in town for a concert. would definitely crash there again!
I had a great stay with the whole gang at #211, and I hope to see you all again sometime! :) Im very happy to recommend Rico's place to anyone looking for somewhere to stay while in New York, I know I had a blast! Best people in the world!
Rico was a great host!
