I am originally from Sydney Australia and now reside in Brooklyn NY.
Love to travel and have been to all 7 continents.
Excellent experience ! You can be sure Sami and Ed will do everything they can to make your journey a great trip. They provide you with towels etc. and nice advices about New York and their neighborhood. The communication was always a pleasure, they respond to every question and the flat is in a very nice area, with the subway very close. It was absolutely big enough for 2 people, the shower is not that short, the living room is lovely and the decoration very cute. We recommend without hesitating !
Great apartment, great location, great hosts! Many many thanks.
The apartment was perfect for us! Cute and clean. It was exactly as you see at the pictures. The metro is only 2 (!) minutes to go from the apartment.
Unfortunately we did not get to know to Sami and Ed, but we really enjoyed our time in their apartment.
The neighborhood is nice and absolutely save! The next door you have a bagel shop and a little supermarket..
Thank you Sami and Ed for that great time in Brooklyn!

Sami and Ed were great hosts and I highly recommend booking their space. The apartment is nicer and more spacious than their pictures let on! Awesome record collection, large dvd collection, plenty of coffee.
However, the best part of this apartment is the location. While the neighborhood is a little up and coming, it is completely safe at all times of day / night. In less than 15 minutes door to door, you can be in the middle of Union Square in Manhattan. From their front door, t is possible to get pretty much anywhere in NYC for $2.25 on public transportation in under 40 minutes.
Within 3 blocks you will find 3 grocery stores, several bars, plenty of restaurants, a few coffee shops, laundromats, a couple of 24/7 corner stores - You name it, it's there!
In terms of downsides, there are only a few: The kitchen is small (probably not a big deal for you if you are just in town for a few days), the hot water runs out in less than 10 minutes, and the place can get pretty cold. Those last two are things that can be fixed, so don't let them stop you from booking.
In summary: Overall, this is a solid place with thoughtful hosts. If you're headed to Williamsburg or want to save a lot of money by not staying in Manhattan, go here!
thank you for stayıng ın my apartment and leavıng so clean ;obviously you kept ıt as your own place clean and ınorder thank you :); ıts your home at thıs sıde of the globe you can stay whenever you lıke
Sami and Ed are my long-time friends. They are a beautiful couple with touch of humour and fun. They reflect this energy to their apartment as well. For sure you won't regret staying in their place.
Sami is one of the sweetest people in the world, and an incredibly responsible and respectful young lady.
