My girlfriend and I have stayed in Airbnb apartments and have rented my rooms out before.
They were really good hosts. They were extremely easy to stay with generous about sharing their things/space. I didn't feel strange using the common areas and I did feel welcome. The apartment is wonderful and I enjoyed my time.
Luke and Mo were gracious hosts and they had a beautiful home, Thanks guys!
Luke is my husband's stepbrother, whom I've only had the pleasure of meeting twice, one time of which was my stay with him in NYC with his girlfriend, Mo. Luke and Mo were most gracious with their lovely apartment in Chinatown. They had no problem having my daughter and I come in and sleep in their living room, use their bathroom and kitchen, nor with us coming and going as we pleased. Luke and Mo are very knowledgable of great places to eat, drink, and enjoy the flavor of NYC. I especially liked the fact that Mo had suggestions for vegetarian food as well!
Both Luke and Mo are well traveled, are wonderful conversationalists, and are genuinely the perfect kind of Air BnB hosts! I would highly recommend staying with them if you are someone who enjoys meeting new people, enjoy the sofa surfing and comfy air mattress way of traveling, as well as trying out a new side of NYC you may not have experienced without having stayed with them in Chinatown.
