Yana was an excellent host and I loved staying at her place. She made sure we knew places to eat and all that, she was great to just talk to as well :) Me and a friend stayed in her room and there was more than enough space for the both of us. Her roommate Kim is also great and very nice. All around I had a lovely time. We would definitely stay with Yana again. Highly recommended.
I had a great time in NY while staying at Yana's.
Yana was a lovely hostess; respectful, helpful, friendly but gives you space. The apartment is tidy & very comfortable, with nice company to boot. All good!
Yana was warm, gracious and quite accommodating. The night I arrived, I was hot, miserable, and drenched in sweat from schlepping my luggage through the subways; she went right out to a nearby store to get me some cold bottled water. I loved chatting with her; time flew when we sat down together. She was very helpful with subway information.
The room itself was clean and commodious. There was space to hang my clothing, and room to spread out my stuff on a large desk. The bed was excellent...firm and comfortable. An air conditioner made sleeping a pleasure.
If you've been to NYC many times, stay with Yana and have a Brooklyn experience in an up-and-coming neighborhood.The subway is a few short blocks away. (Travel time to midtown Manhattan varied between 30-40 minutes.)
"Having just moved into town, I stayed at Yana's for two nights while the flat I rented was being readied. Yana was welcoming and she kindly allowed me to leave the room a little later than the usual check-out time. And she also gave me tips about where to buy cheap furniture! The room I stayed in was quite large and nicely decorated. It included A/C, which was essential during the August heatwave. The flat is on the small side of things so at times it felt a bit overcrowded (especially in the morning, as there is one bathroom) but it is always kept very tidy and clean. The apartment is situated at about eight blocks from the nearest subway station, so you need to enjoy a good walk. But the neighbourhood is very interesting and it always feels safe, even at night (which I don't think is necessarily the case in this part of Brooklyn). In all, it is a friendly, clean flat in an interesting neighbourhood, and the room is definitely good value for the price."
The room was quite big, clean and comfortable. I got bedding and towels. The bathroom, kitchen and living room were shared. Yana is a very nice and helpful person! I really enjoyed the stay. There is a good connection to Manhattan with the G train. The area of Brooklyn was OK.
Although my stay at Yana's was brief, I enjoyed my stay. The bed was very comfortable and it was nice to visit NY Brooklyn style.
Yana is an excellent host. She was always willing to help with the accommodation and the directions I needed. The place is safe, comfortable and clean. Just three blocks to get the G line of the subway. The only thing I didn't like was that the bathroom sink was constantly dirty with makeup, but everything else was really nice.
Yana's room is spacious and comfy. Kim was a fantastic host. she knew where things were and was super friendly. We definitely became friends in the process. Yana was helpful from afar and very accommodating. The only downside was that Yana's room doesnt lock which was slightly disconcerting at first, but it didnt really matter in the end! I would absolutely stay here again if I have the chance!
The room and the hosts Yana and Kim are very nice. At first the neighbourhood was a little scary but in the end i met a lot of nice people around there and even as a girl late at night i had no problems. I really liked the big bed and the very nice appartment. But sometimes at day/night u have some noises from the heating system. I really enjoyed my stay! Thank u!
