I like working on projects, storytelling, music, film, I visit New England frequently, and enjoy the arts in the city.
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...
The host is very kind and the locaiton is good for travel NW !!
The nearest subway is little far, so I recommend to use city bus.
My mom and I spent 6 days in New York. John is a very nice host. The room is very comfortable and the decorations are beautiful. I highly recommend John's room.
I visited John's apartment during December 2013. Overall I would say John is a very gracious host. He was very accommodating to me, my cousin and aunt. The place is located in a very pretty area in the East Village. A bit of a walk towards the metro, but nothing out of the ordinary.
I highly recommend John's place to anyone going to NYC!
Very accommodating host in a convenient and interesting neighborhood!
