Andrea and Sebastian's home was impecable.
As we were relying on a ride from out of town, we couldn't be sure of the time we would arrive but were well accomodated.
Sebastian introduced himself and we were made very welcome. Though we didn't see either of them after that they were easily reached via email if we needed. Andrea made appropriate recommendations and gave clear concise instruction on how to get there.
Great location, convenient-we fell in love with Queens and found a second home at a charming little kareoke bar on Steinway called Shout. So much diversity and convenient to the subway,great markets, pizza, and bagels.
thank you for making our first air bnb experience so awesome~
The host canceled this reservation 38 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We loved staying here! Andrea was extremely helpful and kind. The place is very nice and neat. The neighborhood is okay, but it is located in a very convenient location next to the metro. We loved the bagel place down the street!
I found the description to be very accurate and the hosts very welcoming. The facilities were very clean and the bed very comfortable. The options for subwaying into the city were very convenient and close. My room was large and the whole house was relaxed and safe. The fresh food markets and the ability to get a great pizza at midnight was a bonus. As a first time Airbnb user being with Sebastian and Andrea certainly promoted the brand. Thanks Robyn.

Thank you so much for a wonderful say Andrea and Sebastian! This one week stay has been wonderful and a major part of that has been due to the convenience of having such a comfortable space to return to after a busy day in NYC.
Hosts: Andrea and Sebastian were great and made us feel very welcome. They made some great suggestions for sites to visit both in Manhattan and also locally in Astoria. Towels and toiletries were provided for us which was a convenience to not have to worry about packing. Our hosts were very flexible with our check-in time and made the keys available for whenever was most convenient for us.
Room: We had access to a private entry to the bedroom and it was very clean when we arrived. The room had its own air conditioner to control the temperature to our liking. Bed was comfortable with fresh (website hidden) with cable and HDMI input was provided although we didn't use it. Wifi was provided with password on a stick-it note next to bedstand when we arrived so it was simple to log into the internet. Bathroom and shower are shared with others but we never ran into anybody or traffic/waiting for the bathroom. Overall, very clear instructions and the little things like post-it notes that add convenience and special touch to the place.
Location: The location is AMAZING and you can find no better place off Manhattan. The house is located within 5 minutes walk from the M and R subway lines which take you directly to Manhattan (about 10 minutes from 5th/Lexington and 15-20 minutes from Times/Square). As stated in the listing, the subway is in close proximity and sometimes can be heard along the tracks. However, we never found this to be a problem and fell asleep very easily.
Surrounding neighborhood: Local Astoria also provides a nice get-away from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan if you want to take a low-key evening to relax. Within walking distance in Astoria are great selections of multicultural food such as Middle Eastern/Hookah, mexican taquiera, and bars. It felt very safe walking around at night in this neighborhood exploring what there was to eat/drink. There are also 24-hour grocery stores/pharmacies within walking distance.
Conclusion: Stay here if you are visiting NYC for a pleasant experience that will be just as comfortable as a nice hotel without paying the super high costs. 5 stars!!!
This was a fantastic place to stay and Andrea and Sebastian were very friendly. The location is quite convenient as it is right next to the train station, which made it easy to get to and from the conference I was attending in downtown. The hosts were great and also very accommodating to my night time arrival. Overall I would recommend this place to anyway traveling to New York.
I had such a great time at Andrea and Sebastian's home. They were really kind letting me into the room before the check in time, as my flight was arriving early in the morning. The access to the appartment was really easy from JFK by subway and the same for going to Manhattan every day, many options in both ways! Andrea and Sebastian are really nice and it was great to meet them both, they make me feel immediately welcome! The room is nice and cozy and really large for one person, everything was indicated around with stickers (wi-fi password, air conditioning instructions) so EASY... and clean. I had lots of privacy. The bathroom is great and large, with towels and shampoo and hair dryer... so cool to do not have to carry them on! The neighborhood is so cool, with a lot of places to eat or buy nice and fresh fruits, vegetables, pastries; cheaper than in Manhattan! There's people on the Street 24/7 and makes it really safe to be back late at home. I hardly recommended for a good sleep, nice shower and lovely hosts! Thanks a million, Andrea and Sebastion... no doubt I would love to be back!
Andrea and Sebastian made us feel very welcome and got us started with understanding the area. We then didn't really see them for our stay as we had our own front door so we were able to be very independent. The subway was across the road and the room was good value for money. The size of the room was great with a little rocking chair and a sofa to rest our weary feet at the end of a day! Thank you both!
The location is very good, near the subway. Andrea and Sebastian are really nice and friendly.
If you are considering a great accommodation in New York, then Andrea place is the best choice !!!
Andrea, thank you very much for the wonderful reception and hospitality (website hidden): And remember, the best wine is the wine of the Czech Republic :-)

very nice guys, i would host them again.
Sebastian was a fantastic guest! Very respectful of my apartment and good with communication. Hope he returns sometime, highly recommended
We've known Sebastian and Andrea for several years now and we consider them to be not just our friends, but our family. They are kind, responsible and in the meantime outgoing and just the type of people you would always want to have around. Professionally, they are considerate, respectful and will do everything in their power to make your stay enjoyable. The care for their guests shows the moment you walk in the apartment. The space is immaculate and you will be welcomed with clean linens, towels and a personal care kit, giving you the feeling that you are in an upscale hotel (at a fraction of the price) and not in a shared apartment.
The apartment is well located, just one block from the subway with easy commute to Manhattan and every other part of New York. The fact that they are New Yorkers is more than you can ask for since they can give you great ideas as to where to go and what to do to really experience the city.
