The apartment was nice and clean, in a very nice area close to many beautiful restaurants and cafe. Kenley was super quick to answer to our questions. Would definitely stay again.
We extremely enjoyed our stay in New York and felt very welcome by Kenley and her team. The flat is located (email hidden)ly and exciting area directly in East Village. I can highly recommend this accommodation if you plan to visit New York for a couple of days.
Great location and value. Kenley and her team were extremely responsive and accommodating. Thank you.
La experiencia estuvo bien. El apartamento es céntrico y está bien comunicado en transporte público. El barrio es muy animado.
The Appartment is near everywhere, a little bit small but comfortable... The subway line 6, N and R are 3 minute walk, from there you can arrive everywhere you want in New York City
The owner is very kind.
We have a great time in New York, everything was perfect, the weather the city, the people... We want to go again!!!! :)
This apartment was in a fantastic location, close to the subway and surrounded by plenty of lovely restaurants/bars, although located in a relatively busy area the apartment itself was nice and quiet. We were travelling to NYC from Australia so did not have an American contact number as soon as I arrived at the airport I contacted the host, Kenley (whose number I was provided with) on several occasions with no answer. After attempting to contact her I received help from airbnb, (who were fantastic!) they tried to get in contact with Kenley on my behalf. I tried again to contact Kenley once we arrived at the apartment and she did not answer, luckily airbnb had spoken to her as such Paul met us outside our accommodation. What bothered me was that Paul had been made aware by Kenley that I had attempted to call her on several occasions however she did not answer any of my calls.
There were 3 of us staying at the apartment, the space was more than sufficient for the 3 of us and the beds were very comfortable, the apartment was also heated quiet nicely. The bathroom is quite small (we expected that), the hot water is very temperamental, it takes a while to get the temperature right. Also whilst in the middle of a shower the water can either turn extremely cold or extremely hot so take caution! We also went one night without showering as the hot water wasn't working.
The main issue for us, which did detract somewhat from the overall stay, was the lack of privacy. Paul lives in the apartment across the hall (scarcely a metre across) and the walls are very thin. Although he frequently asked us (when we would come and go from the apartment) if everything was alright, we did feel that it was a bit invasive. This was compounded on one occasion when we were entering the apartment and Paul popped his head in and looked around asking how many of us were staying there. We had made it clear there were only 3 of us, and not only was it a bit rude, it was an invasion of privacy. The final issue came on the last day. Check-out is at 12 and we asked if we could possibly leave our luggage in the apartment longer than this so that we wouldn’t have to leave for the airport too far ahead of our flight. Paul agreed for this to happen while the place was being cleaned (for which we were very thankful). The issue, however, is that we were having a quick nap in the apartment before we planned to leave, when Paul let himself in at 11.30 – half an hour before we were checking out! He hadn’t knocked and so it was a huge invasion of privacy. He apologised many times, which is fine but this obviously made a bit of an uncomfortable note to the end of what was generally a good (website hidden) - Alas, beware of the rats! We luckily had our run in with them on the last day. I was woken up from my sleep from some noise near my window, when I jumped up and had a look it was a large rat on the fire escape! When we also went to empty our rubbish downstairs there were 4 little rats jumping around in the bin.

We had a great time in NY, the apartment was exactly as described, fantastic location, close to the subway and restaurants. Brigette, the host's apartment manager and Kenley were amazing, really easy to contact and very helpful.
We had an incredible time in New York. Thanks a lot for the studio on St Marks Pl. Great place, very well located in friendly and lively East Village, a few feet away from so many restaurants and bars. The place was clean, well furnished and the host was there to greet us and has been very helpful. Will return for sure!
