  • "Spacious and art filled" is right! An absolutely great place to stay. The hosts were very accommodating, provided us with band-aids for our blisters from walking, and aspirin for our head ache from flying. I especially enjoyed the view from the window: seeing the firemen back up the huge ladder truck in a few seconds.

  • Needed to find a place to stay for 3 nights at the last minute - Josh was very nice and helpful. The room was in a great location, close to the Q train, which made my commute into Manhattan very easy! I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone!

  • My stay at Josh apartment couldn't be more perfect.
    The location is great, the neighborhood is safe and super nice with a lot of places to get groceries and drink a good coffee.
    The Q line is 3 blocks away with a really convenient access to Manhattan and other Brooklyn areas.
    The apartment is amazing! and Josh is a helpful and friendly host.
    This was my first time using Airbnb and I'd do it again, for sure.

  • Just arrived back in the UK after staying at Josh's place in Brooklyn NYC. So impressed with the apartment. In a lovely and safe neighbourhood. Lots of places to eat and get groceries. Had breakfast each morning at a place called The Farm which is 2mins from the apartment which I would highly recommend. Looking forward to booking another stay.

  • Joshua is a true super host, making sure you have all you need, even if he's not around. Great apartment, great location. Favorite place to eat in the neighborhood is the Tibetan place next to the Q. Sycamore bar is a great hangout for a drink with a garden patio in the back.

  • really enjoyed this fresh, clean, art filled appartment... Josh makes you feel so welcome and his place has a great vibe

  • Joshua is Awesome! This was our first time using Airbnb and our first time in New YorK. We stayed for just under a week and we had such a great time. Josh is a really cool guy and was happy to help us out in any way from laundry to calling a taxi to things to do for free in NYC. The room was perfect and it felt good coming back to the apartment after a long day of walking around the city. From arrival to departure everything ran very smoothly. We would do it again for sure! A definite FIVE STARS from my husband and I.

  • The apt. was very nice, clean, and comfortable. Josh was great, this was our first time sharing an AirBnB place with the host and we felt at ease. The room is big and gets plenty of light. We really appreciated having access to a washer and dryer. And the location is excellent, just a few blocks from the subway and there are lots of great places to eat within walking distance.
