My stay was okay for the price, it is located in a very latin american quarter, a bit to walk from the metro stop but there are buses connecting to Brooklyn center too. Most necessities are available though a kettle would be great! Delis, fruit shop etc very close by. Check the connections of the metro line L if you plan a touristic visit to NY as you travel quite long to Manhattan otherwise.
All in all an okay deal, just the bed needs fixing (wooden planks drop out on one side) and maybe the hot water supply can be improved! Also the front door of the house does not lock and there is no key for it so this is important to know (and/or could be amended?).
The cleaning lady Maria is very friendly and helpful and lives close by should there be any issues, dealing with Sam was very efficient and customer oriented. Thanks!!
We booked with Sam at the last-minute and he was very accommodating. While out of the country he was quick to respond and took great pains to assure we were cared for. He even allowed us another day when we ran into car trouble that delayed our checkout. While we didn't particularly like the neighborhood, it was close to the L train and we had everything we needed.
Thanks again Sam!
Sam's place is very convenient and clean--less than a block from the L, which is lovely. The apartment is right above a sweet little grocery store, so picking up necessaries was very easy. The building was quiet and friendly. Sam himself is incredibly speedy with replies, super organized and very friendly. I had a great stay and would absolutely stay here again.
Big shouts to Sam and his apartment. Super cheap, close to the station and real easy to get to Williamsburg and Manhattan. 15mins to manhattan. Real honest photos, accurate to the apartment. Friendly neighbourhood. Small bathroom/shower but its more then sufficient. Wifi is a huge help in a foreign city so double thumbs up for that. All in all this apartment is perfect for travellers on a budget looking to get into the real NYC. We loved it.
Samuel was easy to communicate with and always prompt in his responses. Always flexible and eager to please, I would definitely work with him again.
So, I can't tell to much about the location, because I knew where I was going. But what I can say, is that the host was a nice guy, all my questions were answer in detail and fast. He also fix the WiFi, that wasn't working at the time we get in the apartment. Good!!!
He won't get a five star store because of the bathroom, that was unfortunately not as pretty as the whole apartment.
Response from Samuel:
Thanks Camilo! Your opinion is quite what I had in mind when I first walked into my apartment, but there really isn't much I can do to change it. Thanks again and let me know if you ever need something in the future.
