I'm from Japan, and I've been lived in New York for about 10 years.

The stay was ok, if you're just looking for a place to sleep. Room has AC, which was good. The floor was clean, but the walls have quite a lot of stain on it and it smelled a little odd. Communication with Alina was good, we only met once and sent a couple of messages.
The neighbourhood was very ideal since it was close to the subway station and a 15-mins walk from SOHO. It was also 5 mins walk from The Butcher's Daughter (which I recommend everyone to try their juices). Location-wise was good.
The apartment is what it looks like. The A/C is functioning well, which is greatly appreciated in the hot summer. The environment is quiet. I only saw Alina once when I picked up the keys.
We had a great first time visiting New York. Alina's place makes it easy to go to hot spots fast. After a full day of strolling thru the city you can find a nearby restaurant in a heartbeat. During our stay it was quite warm but the a/c and fan cools you down in a matter of minutes.
Alina was very good host. Barely saw her but she made sure that the room and her apartment was perfectly furnished and comfortable for any traveler visiting New York. Thanks again!
L'emplacement de l'appartement est idéal, à peine à 2mn à pied du métro 2 avenue et à 5mn de bowery, du coup on va partout assez rapidement.
Concernant l'appartement en lui-même, c'est parfait pour 2 ou 3 jours et ne pas être trop regardant sur létat de l'appartement.
Alina est très discrète, sur 3 nuits passé chez elle, nous l'avons croisé 2 fois 30 sec.
Alina was very nice to us. During our stay, we barely saw her but she was available to answer our questions which was great. The location was very good: close to transportation, and few minutes to walk to Chinatown, Little Italy and Soho, which was awesome!
I recommend this place to anyone looking for a great deal and wants to stay in the room only for sleep.
The cat was nice, but we could sense a smell of food cat in the kitchen/hallway. The walls of the room could use a paint(especially in the bathroom, as the paint is peeled off), but for us was ok because we didn't stay too long in the apartment. The air conditioning was very loud, but we were lucky because we didn't had to use it, as the outside temperature was low.
This place was convenient for us on our short stay in NYC. Easy access to the subway to the tourist attractions and there are plenty of shops, bars, restaurants etc right out side the door.
We barely saw our host but she was available to answer our questions which was ideal. It's as the host describes and the photos look accurate.
The apartment is small and a bit worn out (could use some paint!) but we had clean sheets, plenty of clean towels and a hot shower to come back to after days out in NYC which is all we needed :)
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Reina is incredibly accommodating! Our flight was delayed about 4 hours, I notified her immediately that we would check in a few hours late and she said it was no problem. She is very kind!
Our room was very clean. We had plenty of blankets and pillows.
The bathroom was clean as well, lots and lots of clean towels.
We didn't want to spend too much money on going out to eat every day, Reina didn't mind us using the the refrigerator and kitchen.
Overall our stay with Reina was awesome!
Awesome location, easy to get around and plenty of stuff close by. Reina was extremely unintrusive, which might be what you're looking for. We practically only saw each other the first day in two weeks. The other host, a cute and skinny kitty, always been around for a little friendly chat.
On the down side, the apt is kinda run-down, cosmetically only - it could use a paint coat, but it didn't bother me that much. What was more of an annoyance was cleanliness; The most used surfaces were averagely clean (if you're not super O.C.D. about it), say floors, shower... But all other areas were loudly screaming for a wipe, including occasional miniature tumbleweed here and there.
Overall, it's been a pretty nice place to stay at. Would I repeat? Surely.
