my full name is Barak Ron, I'm Subletting my apartment in NYC as well
Myself and two friends stayed in Barak's apartment for a week over Independence Day. We had to book a day before because another host canceled on us last minute (it was a blessing in disguise). The apartment was clean with enough space for the three of us. We found the kitchen very handy and the apartment is in a great location. It is nice and close to the delancey and essex lower subway station which takes you to Manhattan. Barak made our stay simple and easy and was always contactable.
Thank you Barak and Hagar if I'm ever back in NYC I will definitely be in contact. Highly recommended.
This apartment is in a FANTASTIC location! My friends and I were so pleased with the shops, restaurants, and people-watching in Barak and Hagar's neighborhood. It's super close to a couple of subway stations and a surprising number of iconic NYC spots (Katz Delicatessen, Kossar's Bialys, BabyCakes, Tenement Museum, Russ & Daughters, McSorley's). The coffee shop across the street is great!
Barak and Hagar are amazing hosts--they are very quick to respond to questions, offer guidance, and made picking up the keys super easy. Their apartment is clean and spacious and even has an AC unit (which is crucial for summer traveling in New York).
The bed is pretty basic (not great for anyone with back problems), and it's true that the bathroom leaves a little to be desired--it's cramped and the tub drains very slowly. BUT, when the tub wouldn't drain at all during our stay, Hagar was immediately available and willing to come over and fix it for us. Thanks, Hagar!
I highly recommend Barak and Hagar as hosts! They're SO much nicer and more accommodating than any landlord I've ever met. :)
I had an amazing time in New York staying at this charming apartment in the Lower East Side. Barak was a fantastic host and facilitated easy collection of the keys and check-out. Barak was lovely and checked in on how we were going in case we needed anything at all. The building is great with a rad old elevator, and a rooftop to get a great view of the area. We had plenty of bedding and towels. The location was amazing. It was a one minute stroll to the subway which sped you to any tourist spots you would want to see and 10 minutes to Broadway and amazing shopping. There are fantastic restaurants, bars and pizza joints surrounding the apartment. This listing was exactly as I expected. Convenient, tidy, comfortable and clean. The kitchen was great with all of the items you would ever need (and to be honest a lot more as you are unlikely to need to cook in New York). I have read other feedback which mentioned the bathroom but all of us found it to be perfectly fine. It is not huge because this is the Lower East Side in New York! But the shower/bath is great and we were very happy with it. The air conditioning was a saviour in the New York heat and there was an iPod dock and a big screen TV (we didn't use this though, we weren't on holiday to watch TV) as well as wifi internet. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will definitely be looking to stay here again when I am next in New York. Thank you for everything Barak!
My friends and I had a great stay at Barak and Hagar's place. Transportation, food, and shops were easily accessible, and Barak and Hagar were very prompt in responding to messages/calls. They gave us very flexible check in/out times and were very accommodating. We really enjoyed staying in the LES area, and would definitely come back again!
We had an amazing stay with Hagar and Barak. They were very accommodating and helpful from the beginning. The apartment was just like it was described and we had no issues with cleanliness or space. We wer full stocked with all we needed for our 10 day stay. They were always accessible via chat with any questions we had and have great advice on what to do locally. The neighbourhood was the best. In the lower east side everything was walking distance from little Italy, soho, the east village and Chinatown. And the delancey subway station was only a block away. The nightlife was good and so many diverse restaurants to choose from. We would definitely yay again and can it wait to return! Highest regards for this rental!
Barak & Hagar was extremely helpful from my initial enquiry right up until leaving NYC. They were always available throughout my stay with any questions I had and were super prompt with anything I needed. The apartment was spacious and clean and in an excellent location. Walking distance to bars, cafes, parks, shopping, close to numerous subway lines. Very convenient to get to Brooklyn also. Would definitely stay there again. Thanks!!!
We had a great time a Barak's & Hagars. they Answered and questions and needs promptly and thoroughly! The apartment is also situated in an amazing location on the lower east side and right next to the train that takes u to all major attractions.
I was wanting a NYC apartment experience so I decided on Barak and Hagar's apartment. I have no regrets. The apartment has everything that you need to have an enjoyable time. The bed is comfortable, as is the couch. The meals area is a nice way to enjoy breakfast watching the world go by the window. The kitchen has everything you'll need if you want to prepare and cook food. The bathroom is clean and tidy. The apartment is surprisingly spacious with plenty of room for your belongings. There are many shops, bars and clubs within walking distance. As others have already stated, it can be noisy outside especially on Friday & Saturday nights, but it's NYC! The apartment is literally 3 minutes walk to the subway. Barak & Hagar answered emails punctually and were very flexible with check in and check out times. As you can tell, I had a great time!
It was a pleasure to spending time in Barack's location.
The place is in a perfect area for lunch, lounge bar and clubbing.
I didn't had the chance to meet Barack, but he was very available by e-mail.
Unfortunately, we didn't liked the rest/bathroom at all.
But that's the only negative point.
For the rest, Barack's has a nice place in a very good place where you can reach all the sides of the city. And it is surrounded by a cool night life area.
The apartment is really well located, clean and nice but really noisy even for NY during the late night and starts again at 6 in the morning. The bathroom and small things need to be renewed and the bed is not comfortable but everybody has is own preference. I don't have an opinion regarding the host, they seems nice but they didn't reply to the only question we addressed, so I cannot say anything.
Barak e sua moglie Hagar hanno visitato scelto il mio studio per la loro visita a Firenze nella loro Luna di Miele in giro per l'Italia. Sono due giovani gentili, simpatici e molto attenti alla cultura Italiana. Alla loro partenza tutto era in ordine e (website hidden) raccomando vivamente a tutti i proprietari.
