One of my favorite things about the apartment is the exposed brick. Apartment equipped with HD TV and internet. Check out the cool kitchen ceiling! Very New York. You can't beat the spacious feel of this downtown spot.

Please read: **On 3.2.18 I switched this to a FULL RENTAL LISTING. I am looking for FULL rentals for long stays ideally for the months of June and July (possibly August). Before those dates through the end of March you will notice the space mostly booked in full. Dates still open before June are SHARED SPACE rentals and I'm happy to negotiate lower pricing when you are booking a share. Also please note, I do not accept reservations of guests under 21 years of age for liability purposes.

Kafi is very communicative and hospitable. She is friendly yet gives you space if she happens to be in the apartment at the same time. I stayed in her spacious room for 2 weeks. The room had space for my big suitcase (there are 2 flights of stairs but the climb is worth it), an…

My sister and I stayed for 10 days whilst we explored the city. The apartment was exactly as Kafi described. It's in a great location, close to several subway stops on different lines and there are lots of great food places nearby. Kafi was a great host; we didn't see her very…

I had a fantastic stay at Kafi's place. She was so accommodating and really great company as well. The place looks exactly like the pictures and really is a little oasis in the heart of the East Village. It was incredibly quiet with minimal noise from traffic, but the area is ama…

Kafi was an informed and reliable host, providing all that had been detailed in the description of the room. The place is in a perfect location, five to twenty minutes from everywhere in Manhattan, and even has easy and very quick links to Brooklyn (only one stop from Bedford Ave…

Kafi's place is in a nice part of town, and is lovely inside. Kafi herself was also pleasant and willing to help. However, I think there was a misunderstanding with our booking, as similarly to the people who stayed a month ago we did not expect Kafi to be in the apartment the …

Response from Kafi:
This guest just left a pretty deceptive review on my host page. It was clear when she booked that it was for a single room, not the entire apartment. She even stayed at a reduced rate. On her last two nights she had an additional guest come. She was unclear about when that person would be arriving. That brought it up to three guests. When more than two people stay the ENTIRE apartment gets taken up. Normally that would cause the price to immediately jump to 200/night. I was really flexible and still willing to charge a reduced rate. I always make a point of making my guests feel super comfortable. Marylyn and her friends never indicated otherwise during their entire stay. In fact, they were super friendly so I'm blindsided by her review. I was in fact the one who expressed to Marylyn that I was willing to give her friend a deal and that normally the price would jump to 200/night for three people in the apartment. If it was at all a question, why did she not raise it then? I asked them to check out by 10AM because other guests were coming and the apartment needed to be cleaned, sheets changed etc. 10AM is a very reasonable checkout time. I even offered for Marylyn to leave her bags behind if needed during the day and she opted not to. When we made checkout arrangements, they said they were more than fine with the time. I think it is incredibly unfair to make it seem like you are having a great experience and say as much while someone is hosting you and then turn around and leave the exact opposite in a review. Also, I was home more than usual during their stay because of my scheduling. It is not typical, I'm usually very much on the go...but there was never a means for them to feel the need to "tip toe" around. If that was the case then I would not rent the room out (or the couch additionally) while I am in town. Based on the fact that this guest was not honest, I would have to say I wouldn't suggest her to stay in your home. Trust me, it does not feel awesome to go out of your way to host someone and make sure they have all they need, for them to smile to your face, and then leave a rather underhanded review. Very sad to have to leave this feedback because I usually have such a positive experience with all of my guests. By the way, I just went through all of my correspondences with Marylyn leading up to her stay...and SHE even acknowledges that this was for a private room/shared listing...and if a third guest were to come that they would be on the couch. I'm also incredibly clear about if it is a full or private rental...especially after receiving the review that she referenced in hers.

We came to NY to celebrate my birthday and we had a wonderful time! Kafi was a great host, she was understanding of our delayed arrival time, showed us around the East Village and gave great take-out advice. Her apartment was the perfect location and there was lots of space. I…

It was stated very clearly at the time you booked that this is a shared space/private room listing. Availability changes based on my travel schedule. When I am away the apartment is clearly listed as a full rental as opposed to a private room. I work with my guests to make sure they feel relaxed and at home and there is never an issue. It's surprising that you did not express any of your concerns during the time of your stay, but I appreciate the lovely note and candies you left behind. That was nice to come home to. Sorry I was not around to see you off.
