My six students stayed at Josh's place for three nights, and though not much time was spent in the apartment, they were very happy with their stay. Location is excellent, and the apartment was surprisingly quiet.
This apartment worked beautifully for our party of 5. Convenient to the L subway, the East River Ferry, and in a happenin' neighborhood. "Check-in and check-out" worked smoothly as advertised. Excellent shop and restaurant recommendations-to which we would add "Rye", a short walk away on S 1st.
We really enjoyed our stay at Josh's apartment.
Josh answered our questions really quickly and we really appreciated it.
The location was perfect: just one little block from the L line stop Bedford avenue so very close from Manhattan but also in the very heart of a great neighborhood, Williamsburg. There are many restaurants and great bars and cafés, nice trendy shops (including the famous Mast Brothers chocolate shop!) and it's also very close from the river where you can take a ferry to go to DUMBO or Manhattan.
The apartment was more spacious than expected, with a nice kitchen/dining room opened to a small living room with two sofas. We were a family of six and it was really nice to enjoy our breakfast there or to have dinner at night or just to relax after a long day walking in NYC. There are also three independent bedrooms: two big ones facing the street (earplugs required on Saturday nights) and another one on the other side smaller but also quieter.
We would be happy to come back again!
We had a wonderful stay at the Bedford apartment. Every aspect of the visit went smoothly. We felt welcome and comfortable. The apartment was clean and well stocked with everything we could possibly need.
The location was wonderful. Close to the subway and lots of good places to eat just outside the front door.
I would highly recommend this place or any other offered by Josh. Thanks for making our holiday so great.
Nice apartment in a great spot, with an excellent bagel recommendation!
Josh was an excellent host. It was easy to get the keys from the restaurant (which apparently is one of the best in the neighborhood as told by someone in the streets) The apartment is quirky, lovely and clean. I can only recommend staying there. It's close to the shoemarket where I left a substantial amount of money :)
Josh's apartment is located at an ideal spot in Williamsburg. Just staying on Bedford Av. is an experience in itself. We stayed five people in the apartment and it was just the right size. Check in and out went very well and even though it's a busy street we slept well. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend a stay in Williamsburg anytime!
Pros: Clean Apartment well located in Williamsburg. Owner provides everything he states in the ad. Nice restaurants and shop within walk distance. Subway is 2 blocks down the street. Josh allowed us to check in earlier (9:00 am)! Heater works great. Safe place.
Cons: Noise place specially during the nights, lot traffic and people walking on the streets. Building itself is falling apart and it is dirty. Stairs to get to the apartment is narrow and IMO not safe. Apartment floor makes lot noise when walking. Bathtub is old and have lot stains (i guess it just old but gave a bad impression) Shower head is really low. Center and coffee table in the leaving room is made off cardboard.
Overall: good price for the size, however would not came back because of the noise and conditions of the building. Josh is great host and easy to communicate with!
Good communication, easy checkin. great streets (festive on fridays if you take the room in front!). Great host!
Stayed at Josh's apartment for a couple weeks. Great location, cool Bars and restaurants. I was working in Manhattan but really easy to get to as Josh's place is so close to the Bedford Ave L subway. Josh was very helpful and quick to deal with any questions. Would stay again.
Josh is a great and friendly guest. As he is a regular Airbnb host, he knows what it means to receive guests. Therefore communication was easy and he returned a perfectly clean apartment. Thank you Josh for making your stay another great Airbnb experience.
Josh was a great guest. He is an experienced airbnber and it was god to get to talk to him about his experiences. Interesting guy. Highly recommend.
Josh and Ray are charming, responsible guys who really looked after our place, making the most of its full potential and best of all enjoyed themselves thoroughly. Couldn't ask for more in a tenant. Highly recommendable.
I was very happy to receive them, all went fine. They were very motivated since they really like the neighborhood.
I hope to see them again whether in San Francisco or in Paris. Thank you Josh!
