Lais was an incredible host and went out of her way to make me feel welcome and ensure I had everything I needed. Really enjoyed the chance to get to know her, and access to her amazing bookshelf!

Lais was fantastic from the moment I arrived. A brief tour of the neighborhood (shops, restaurants, etc) incase I needed anything and helped me with the subway system (about a 10 minute walk away). The pictures are an accurate representation of everything. It was very hot when I was in New York and there's no AC but there where fans a plenty!

Lais is the best! The sweetest host I've never had. The room is nice and comfortable and was perfect for what I needed. I'm from Brooklyn and have lived in the neighborhood for many years so I didn't need much of a tour or guidance on the area. Lais made me breakfast and lunch and we chatted for hours. I would recommend bringing earplugs because the room is in the front of the apartment and there is construction going on next door that I'd hear a little in the morning. (I'm a bit of a light sleeper) I'm pretty sure I'll be back next week to stay ;-)

The place was very clean, and the owner and her roommate were so friendly.

Neither of the hosts on this listing were in town when I arrived, so their roommate was my host. She was very welcoming and polite, and the listed hosts were very helpful and quick when my other reservation cancelled 2 days before my trip. The room I had was next to the kitchen, and without any windows. It was functionally sufficient for my stay, though I felt a bit overheated with the winter heating on full blast and no way to regulate the room temp. Overall it was a comfortable place for a short stay.

The location is excellent. Very convenient for getting around. The neighbourhood is beautiful. The apartment is clean, spacious and tastefully decorated. Best of all though is the people who live there. Tommy and Lais are so smart, so welcoming and completely relaxed. I had a stressful layover and had to get in and out of New York but they were so accommodating and flexible that I did not even feel flustered once!
