The best part of this listing is that Airbnb gave us a FULL REFUND after I sent numerous photos and explained our stay. We arrived at the entrance to the building around 8:15 pm on a Sunday night. It had graffiti on it and it smelled like urine. We hit the buzzer to get into the door and came into a lobby that was very run down looking. Very narrow stairs led up and at the top was a number written on the wall with marker to state what floor you were on. We had many bags and boxes as we were moving our daughter to the city that were very difficult to maneuver up two flights of narrow, twisting stairs and halls. The hallways smelled like urine as well (apparently from a dog in a neighboring unit). On entering the unit we paid $20 extra to the cleaning person for the internet code. She gave us the key and as we looked around the unit, we noticed it was very old and dirty looking. We immediately said this was not an acceptable unit for the price the host was charging ($320). The cleaning gal meekly said sorry, told us to contact the host and left. In looking around the unit, the surface areas seemed wiped, but there was black mold in the tub (which the host said was just rust), and there was dirt and dust everywhere. Trust me, it was mold, I was able to scrub it off. We refused to shower there. There was so much dirt and filth behind the curtains and around the unit that it looked as if it had not been truly cleaned in years. The window had been left open and we could not properly close it, it was stuck. Traffic noise (building is on a corner) and people yelling on the streets was so loud that we felt we were sleeping outside (3 floors up). The sheet on the "bed" was pilled and would not stay on the mattress, nor was there a mattress pad, but we could not sleep for the noise, even with ear plugs in. Our daughter slept on a futon and she said that was at least comfortable. She seemed to have a better sheet. Being a holiday weekend, all hotels under $450 were booked that Sunday, but we found an available room for our remaining nights the next morning, and left the key for the host on the table. It truly was NOT what we expected. The host did respond to texts, but said she was unable to do anything until late the next day. Even a deep cleaning at that point was not worth staying. It needs upgrades for that price.

We visited Ny the first time and had an amazing stay at Elenas apt. Its only 10 minutes away from Times Square and Broadway. So you can walk to all restaurants and pubs.
La estadía fue bastante satisfactoria, lo mejor es la ubicación, realmente esta perfectamente ubicada. Es perfecto para pocos días en new york.
The location was great as I wanted to be near Broadway. It was a nice private place and was perfect for what I needed. It's safe and Elena was very responsive and pleasant :) I loved the neighborhood and how everything is so close.
The apartment looks exactly as in pictures. It was clean. Both WiFi and TV were fully operational. Elena was easy to communicate with and for organizing. The only thing you someone might find problematic is apartment's size.
Elena was a really nice host. Even if we didn't meet personally, she answered our questions quickly and always friendly. The apartment was clean and really looks like it's shown on the pics. I would recommend it to 1-2 people who wanns visit New York and hang out in the city, because the apt is very tiny. It's in a good and safe area, even 10 min to walk to Time Square :-)
Very basic. For one night with no need of down time to work or rest in the room...it works.
The apartment is small but perfect for 1 person. The apartment was in great location and only a 10 minute walk from times square. Overall my stay was good.
Elena is a fantastic person. Happy, honest, full of life. She brought light and joy to my home, I recommend here to any host.
Elena es una chica muy sonriente, con quien se puede hablar sin problemas, solo estuvo una noche en mi piso como parte de su viaje por las tierras españolas, y para ser sincera no tengo queja sobre ella, sera bienvenida en mi casa siempre que quiera visitarnos :).

Elena ha rispettato orari e regole della casa. Prenderei in considerazione una sua nuova richiesta di affitto.
I know Elena in person. She is a great girl! Always smiling, very kind, broadminded, easygoing, friendly, an outgoing personality! I think there will be no problems having her as a guest or as a host. She is a reliable person.
Elena is my very good friend. She is responsible, reliable person you can definately trust. She will help you to make your stay a wonderful expirience.
Elena is a great and very reliable person which I have know for many years. I am sure she will be a great host!
Awesome! If Elena is requesting accommodations from you or you are thinking about staying at a place she has then consider yourself VERY lucky. Too many good things to list them all. Super friendly, extremely bright, responsible, great communication, everything you are hoping for when a person signs up on this site. The entire process was great in every way. Do not hesitate for a second to quickly connect with her in a booking! Very highly recommended. 5 stars!!
