Great area to stay in. Reka & Erin were very friendly & helpful with any questions I had.
Room is a great size & bathroom with all amenities you would need.
In short: Great apartment, excellent location, and super nice hosts.
I recommend staying here to anybody enjoying the close location to the pulse of East Village while still in a quiet neighborhood for your night sleep in a fresh apartment with a great terrace.
Don't forget to ask for restaurant tips - this source beats all guide books and blogs our there.
We could not be happier about your stay at Reka's apartment. The location is just fantastic, so you can pretty much walk all around the city without taking the subway. We loved Iren and it was really nice having a chance to talk to her when we got to see her, though most of the time we had the apartment to ourselves with a beautiful balcony perfect for having tea and coffee in the morning. Thank you Reka and Iren for the stay!
Reka and her housemate, Erin, were great hosts! Not fussy and most of the time, left me with the house where I could watch Netflix (if only I had time!). My room was spacious, considering NY's tight apartments, clean and i was given lotsa hangers for my clothes! The apartment was neat and tidy, and there's a deck where you can enjoy the sun and view during Spring and Summer (I was there in Winter).
I like the neighborhood, with lotsa awesome eateries (that Sandwich place Reka recommended), UpState (1st Ave), Wafles and Dinges (East Village)... you will never be left with lousy food options. I enjoyed the vibe of the neighborhood (you just gotta explore).
The place is 10-15min walk from the subway station, but walking is not a problem for me unless I have lotsa shopping, which i will take a bus. The block is surrounded by quite a few bus stops so it was easy for me to get around Manhatten with just 1 bus ride, if you choose to ride the bus. I almost never have to take the cab here in my 2+ wks stay.
Enjoy your stay at Reka!
Reka and Erin are friendly and courteous hosts - so was Boo :-) and it was a pleasure to stay in their apartment.
Killer place in a great, safe location with a lot of stuff to do all within walking distance. The house was constantly clean and the room was very comfortable. Almost too good to be true! Erin was lovely and would sometimes cook nice vegan meals (mostly kale) and hang out. I would come back.
I enjoyed my stay at this apartment a lot. The place was spotless clean and the decoration very special. The shower was good enough. The hostesses were kind and welcomed us warmly. It's a 15, 20- minute walk to the subway but If you don't mind walking it's in a nice area to look around. I highly recommend it.
A great place to stay, quiet, sunny, no to far from a subway station, cafes and shops around...and two very kind people who made us feel welcome. A nice place to rest after a walking day in NYC!!!
This is a really wonderful apartment, with a spacious, comfy room and bed, clean bathroom, nice decor, AMAZING roofdeck. A real gem in the East Village, I've already booked another stay. Reka & Erin are wonderful hosts. Overall great experience.
I spent a week with my brother in Reka and Erin's apartment (August-September 2013) and it was a great experience. Lovely place (amazing terrace facing downtown), big bed, clean bathroom, good neighborhood... And these two girls are such kind hosts! Absolutely recommended.
Reka is a fun and sociable person. I hosted her and her friend Daniel for a few days. They came to Oradea for a movie project. Although they were very busy, we found time to go out a couple of times and have some fun. Looking forward for their next visit in march.
Reka stayed here for one night and I was mostly out but we got to chat a little and she's a really nice girl, easy to talk to! She's a airbnb host herself so she knows the drill. You're welcome back here!
Excellent guests. Very respectful students from Columbia University. They treated my home as they would their own. Everything was in perfect condition and appreciate their kindness to me when we met.
