Hello from a fellow New York host.
Kat was helpful and accommodating and replied quickly to communication. She was also very helpful when we were delayed in New York due to weather allowing us to stay extra nights on short notice.
The apartment however was not particularly well cleaned as the floor was gritty and there was an unknown and unnameable substance in the oven which emitted a foetid smell when the oven was turned on without checking what lay within beforehand. The apartment was also a little noisy as the ceiling seemed to have been crafted employing the same techniques used in the construction of high quality percussive instruments.
There is a supermarket around the corner and a number of pizza and take aways in close proximity.
In short a little noisy and needs a good clean, but a good stay otherwise.
Getting the key was very easy and well organized. Also good to have an elevator in the building. The apartment however was a disappointment. It was extremely noisy. You could hear everything from the neighbors on the floor above. Also the fridge made so much noise that I had to turn it off to be able to sleep. The mattress was very thin and not very comfortable. So all in all I found it to expensive for what I got and will not recommend it to my friends.
Localización excelente. Las fotos son reales pero el apartamento está bastante más viejo de lo que parece. Limpieza aceptable, la cocina es muy vieja y tuvimos que comprar alguna cosa para la cocina: mantel, una olla. El portal es horrible, al llegar se te cae el alma a los pies y dudad de donde te vas a meter. No hay cajones en los armarios.
En general bien, pero muy mejorable
Kat's place is really comfortable and in a superb location. Very clean. Kat's friend who let us in was super helpful.
Avoid basement laundry on Mondays daytime (busy).
Fantastic stay. Great location in NYC. Walking distance to many bars, restaurants and not too far a walk to the nearest underground station. The apartment is large and spacious for a studio and true to the pictures posted. We had no issues picking up keys and getting settled in. Would highly recommend this place for anyone visiting NYC.
Our stay at Kat's Loft Studio in Midtown was excellent. It was a great location, close to the subway and we were able to walk to many attractions in the area which was awesome.
The apartment itself was great, very clean and we were able to store our luggage safely before check in and after check out - very accommodating. Overall it was a great stay and I would recommend to fellow travellers.
Great communication from Kat and friends, nice split-level apartment, perfect for two; clean, well-maintained (A/C & kitchen electrics worked fine). Amazing location for Central Manhattan and UN. Neighbours could be a little noisy (wooden floors are creaky) but earplugs did the job.
The apartment was clean and well located for midtown and the bed was comfortable. The host was very responsive in the run up to our stay, and checking-in and out was easy and convenient. Downsides: bathroom drainage in shower didn't work. Two small towels is not sufficient for a two-person stay longer than a couple of nights. Lighting in the apartment was poor. No storage space for clothes aside from one hanging closet. It meant that we were living out of a suitcase for our trip.
The hostel is in an amazing location and has a phenomenal view! I was lucky enough to go when it was quiet, so I had a room to myself! I had a bit of trouble finding the hostel since there were no signs out front, but someone pointed me in the right direction and I found it shortly thereafter. Since it was a very quiet time for the hostel there was no one there to check me in. They texted me the code combination and left a key for me. It worked out ok, but it would have been nice to have someone to recommend things to do/see. Also, the perfect location does mean that it's in a popular part of town which has live, acoustic music until close to midnight in good weather. I found it charming and relaxing, but if you are a light sleeper I would recommend earplugs!
We stayed at the studio for 5 days and we felt right at home! There was everything we needed - great location, full equipped kitchen, utilities. The city is magnificent and everything is within walking distance. Thank you!
Kat was respectful guest and easy to communicate with.
She left the apartment in great shape, and I wouldn't hesitate recommending her to other hosts
