As it's clear with all the reviews here, location is what this is all about. It's a small studio apartment with a tiny bathroom. It's all a bit rundown and yes all the furniture is kinda put together without any interior design sense. The bathroom is a bit dingy. It's pretty dark.
BUT, the host Yuriy was amazing! He replied to all my questions right away. Usually just a few minutes later. It was SUPER easy to get to and into the apartment as there is a Masterlock outside and therefore no need to get a meeting time. I stayed for 3 nights with my mom. You're in New York, so you run around all day anyway and we just needed a place to sleep and for this price you cannot get a decent hotel room in this kind of area. So we enjoyed being able to walk to all the great restaurants and shops in the area and when we arrived late at night we would just fall asleep right away anyway.
All in All I would definitely stay again!
