Hi Kate, I am sorry you had a bad time. The sheets were cleaned before you got there, but if you ahd let any of us know you did not feel they were clean enough we would have rewashed them. We use all organic and natural cleaning supplies and would have been happy to use traditional detergent if you had informed us you wanted them cleaner. Regarding the area - if you are looking for something touristy- this is not the area. I am sorry you missed the cafes, bars, art galleries and up and coming designer shops in the area. The area is very artistic and filled with many local NYC favorites and is a very desired area for young creative types. If this is not your scene and you were hoping for a more mainstream and tourist experience I can understand your disappointment. I hope anyone reading their review willread the other reviews regarding the neighborhood and will (website hidden) Bushwick to get a feel for the neighborhood.
