Phillip was extra accommodating, even with my really late check-in time. The place was clean, comfortable, and in a good location right next to the subway to Manhattan. The place was also close to Prospect Park. Thanks for your help in making my trip fantastic!
THE GOOD: Good amount of space, great location close to Prospect Park and the subway station just across the street.
THE BAD: Despite giving 2 hours notice of our time of arrival, we still had to wait for Philip for almost 2 hours when we arrived. He wouldn't answer phone calls and kept texting he was on his way but he never showed up and a neighbor let us in for him. We actually never even met Philip once during our 2 night stay. When we walked in the apartment, it had a bad smell and did not give the impression it had been cleaned recently, with the bad smelling sheets/mattress an especially bothersome issue. The place wasn't stocked with toilet paper, so when the remaining roll ran out, I asked Philip to provide more and he tersely told me to buy some myself across the street at the supermarket. The LEAST they could do is provide toilet paper. Also, the toilet seat was broken. The pictures on the listing are not accurate, as one bed is just a dirty old mattress on the floor, without the frame shown in the pictures. It wasn't nearly as nice and clean as the pictures, and some of the furniture is different.
Despite the location and space, I wouldn't recommend this place and wouldn't stay there again.
My stay was very pleasant at this place. The host was very easy to communicate with and flexible. The apartment is simple and basic. It is also right across from the subway station which makes the commute pretty easy.
Everything was as expected from posting. Clean and well kept place. I had a great time. Phillip was great. Attentive and accommodating.
Philip is a kind, welcoming and very helpful host, he was easy to communicate with. The train station is really just a few steps away from the apt, which makes getting to the city convenient and fast. Although the close proximity of the train station (above ground), made the apt a little bit noisy for us. Price-value ratio is good though.
Came back for a second visit, and it's still great.
Thank you, Philip!
The host was outstanding. Helpful and approachable in every way possible and made the stay very pleasant. The neighbourhood is amazing ! Great little restaurants, shops and markets just a few steps way as well as Prospect Park! The apartment was very clean and with the essentials for a short or not so short stay.
I would recommend it 100% and would definitely stay again in the future.
Great place to stay in Brooklyn. Very conveniently located right at the B/Q/S line subway station and right beside the great Prospect Park.
The apartment is clean & has everything I needed. The host was very accommodating despite my late night arrival.
My sister and I needed a place to stay in Brooklyn while I was apartment hunting and this was the perfect location. This is a great place to stay if you are planning on spending your days out and about and just need a place to come back and sleep. Philip and his wife were very helpful and kind throughout our stay and were there to answer all of our questions. They even recommended a couple of fun events that were going on the week we were there. The BQ and S trains are literally across the street from the apartment, which makes travel very easy. We mostly stayed in Brooklyn since that's where I was looking for apartments, but even getting to Times Square on our last night only took about 35 minutes. Like previous people have shared, the train does pass right under the apartment, so if you are a light sleeper, this probably isn't the place for you. We had a great experience and would definitely recommend to anyone!
The host was very hospitable and the rooms were simple, clean, and just as they appeared in the pictures. We enjoyed our stay and found the location to be nice and convenient (just across the street from the subway station).
