The description of the room was accurate. The host Michael was really nice, accommodating and answered all of our questions. We did not have a hard time finding his place and we found his place accessible as it is a block away from the subway station which makes the touring around the city very easy.
The room is clean, the mattress is comfortable, there is hot water in the bathroom. The shared kitchen, bathroom and living room is very clean.
Plus points for Michael, the host for allowing us a late check out (7pm) as we have an evening flight. He also helped us carry all our (extremely heavy) luggages to his apartment which we won't be able to manage ourselves.
We drove into NYC for the weekend and this loft room worked great for our family. Our 14-year-old son loved the upper bed, and as we only spent a couple of late evening hours there awake together, the relatively small space was fine. We spent a long rainy(!) day going via subway to restaurant, museum, coffee shop then jazz show and dinner and felt very comfortable being welcomed "home" by Michael at the end of a busy, fun day. We relaxed on his sofa and enjoyed the easy company as we watched some TV.
He runs an organized, efficient ship as far as obtaining keys, rules of the house etc. All very clear and wonderfully clean and quiet- we all slept well. He is a friendly, out-of-the-way yet there-if-you-need-him host. It felt like a private space with occasional companionship.
The A and C line entrance is very close and we found affordable parking nearby. Only downside for us was that we spent our evenings far south (Village) so it was a rather long subway ride home at night, but surprisingly easy connections etc.
Would recommend the room highly, especially if you are interested in visiting the cloisters or other north side attractions as well. Saved us a fair bit over a tiny hotel room midtown.
This home and this room were spotless and comfortable. Michael, the host, answered all of my questions and went out of his way to help me and make my stay pleasant. The place is very convenient to many forms of transportation making it easy to visit all NYC had to offer. I would highly recommend this room and host to anyone looking for a safe, clean and comfortable place in NYC
we stayed just for 3 days and it was great. we didn't get chance to meet Michael but he had given all the information required. he was always in touch to ensure that we were comfortable. great location. highly recommend it
First of all, we did not meet Michael until the third day I believe of our four night stay. He made sure we were very comfortable and arranged all the little details before hand. We were well informed of all the rules and regulations which helped us eased into our stay without having to worry about New York hassles like parking, transportation, and the keys to the place. It is a very clean and spotless home stay and that would only reflect the owner. Thanks Michael for providing us a welcoming place to stay away from home. Even though we had guests across from us for three nights. They were very respectful and we were able to sleep without any problems during the entire stay. We would love to come back again whenever we visit NYC. Keep up the awesome job Mike!!

Michael was a gracious host who also give us maximum privacy. He made us feel very comfortable during stay. The loft was beautiful and within close proximity to many dining areas and the subway. Thanks Michael for opportunity to enjoy a mini, hassle free vacation.
