As stated in my review I thought that the location of the apartment was great and the host accommodating. I am just being honest when writing in my review that if I had known we could not flush toilet paper down the toilet we probably would have chosen alternative accommodation. Yes the host explained on our arrival that the building was old and this was a common problem in NYC apartments, which we understand. We therefore made the best of our experience and did as Sindy asked and placed ALL toilet paper in the trash bin and disposed of it appropriately. This is not a complaint as such, but just honest feedback that may be helpful to other Airbnb users. It is just my preference to stay in holiday accommodation that has all amenities in working order. Apologies to the host that she took my feedback in the wrong way I just think that all guests should be informed that you cannot flush paper down the toilet in this apartment in order to make an informed decision when booking accommodation.
