I like working on projects, storytelling, music, film, I visit New England frequently, and enjoy the arts in the city.
John is a very nice, gracious and hospitable person. The area is very lively and convenient. The room, however, is not quite as it looks online - it is a bit cramped and has quite a bit of cat hair and other clutter. It's absolutely comfortable and just fine, but don't expect anything all too luxurious!
Like the location; my son and family live close by.
The heat worked well.
John, welcome us so nice, if we come back to NYC we rent same room.
REally great! a cool NewYorker and very friendly host. App well located, totally recomend it! ;)
Very nice man and a perfect host ! Of course we will go back to his house next time ! The room is very quiet and John is very helpful about everything. It was a pleasure to discuss with him every time. After long day of visiting the city, it was so good to take time in a room without the noise of the street... We must recommend this place !
Everything was perfect! The owner is very friendly and we stayed very well. The apartment is quiet, comfortable and well located. If we came back to NYC we will repeat with John!
We have really enjoy the talk about every day in our final part of the day!! And how shy is the nice cat (good girl)!! We really miss touch this nice cat!
John is amazing. Super chill fella. Great area of town.
the house is located in a beautiful area, not far from the subway, is the ideal place to get easy to put every part of Manhattan. the home owner is a very helpful, courteous and reserved. the room is very spacious but not very clean. the furniture is covered with dust and the windows do not open with ease. too hot in the room and if you open the window, enter cockroaches. the bathroom is very dirty the kitchen is not in the best of conditions.
We liked to stay with John and his shy cat Good Girl. The place is very central and perfect to explore Manhattan and Brooklyn. He was friendly and relaxed and in if we would haved time there was a library with good books from Kafka to Nietzsche in our room. We will come back for a stay - it´s the perfect price.
John was a great host. He was friendly, quiet, totally respected our privacy, nice person to be neighboring rooms with.
The place is pretty basic, if all you need is a place to sleep and shower, this will work. It was warm and heated, which is important if you come in the middle of winter like we did! The door for the room doesn't lock, which is not ideal, but we didn't encounter any real problems from that.
The location is good. The neighborhood is great, lots of great restaurants and bars within walking distance. It's a bit of a walk to the nearest subway station, but it felt pretty safe.
If you care about clean floors for walking around without shoes on, I would suggest bringing slippers. Other than that, the sheets were clean, place was not as dirty as other reviewers made it sound...
