l-Lin is so awesome host! :) He is so helpful and kind. The location is not bad. This room looks same in pictures. One of the great advantages of this cosy room is that you could use washer and dryer in house. Although this area can be noisy because of trains, I recommend this room.

I stayed four month in this apartment while studying at Pace University. The room is tiny and the apartment next to the trainrail, so the train was very loud. The location of the apartment is great for a citytrip. Their are four bedrooms in the apartment and except I-Lin nobody really cares about cleaning, so the apartment isn't very clean. I-Lin is a great host and tries to help with any questions you have and makes your stay as comfortable as possible. I would definitely recommend staying with him.

The space is really cute and clean. It has great wifi and cold ac. The location is convenient and safe. Inside the apartment, ilin and his roommates were courteous and overall quiet! Ilin himself was very helpful, especially on the first night of our arrival, there was a mix up and he went out of his way to settle things. :) Phonomenal.

My stay here was excellent! The room is lovely, and the apartment has all the essentials. It's in a great location and very close to the subway. Shared with three other people (including I-Lin) but everyone has busy schedules so we only saw each other in passing - everyone was pleasent and quiet. I would definitely recommend staying here!

Steve is really nice and so helpful, he takes me around the neighborhood on my first day of staying, we also hang on the rooftop, he has a really sweet rooftop by the window with a sick kinda view. And yes we're friends now. The area is awesome, so close to many cool places, cool bars and restaurants. 5 mins walk to Lower East Side, 20 mins walk to Soho, 25 mins walk to East Village, etc. Perfect. Also if u guys love to skate, there's a huge cool skatepark right behind the apartment.
