My teenage daughter and I rented a room in january 2015. It was during wintertime so it was cold outside. The heater in the house works perfectly but it was a little bit too warm for us compared to the outside temperature. Opening the only openable window in the living room, or sleeping with the airconditioning on, helped a bit to reduce the heat.
The room is located at an ideal, central place in Lower Manhattan. The beds were fantastic to sleep on. Mike is a very friendly and hospitable man who gave us the feeling that his house was our house.
The apartment is comfortable and cozy, even when all the rooms are full there's no any problem with the use of the bathroom and kitchen. Apartment was cleaned everyday, all the peoples in the apartments follow the rules, that's make easier and convenient the stay. The location is awesome, there is a bunch of great restaurants nearby and there are 3 different train routes available just 3 blocks of distances. there's also a bunch of places nearby to buy NY city souvenirs, ATM's in every corner and the neighborhood is very safe. John is very kind and always try to help you with your stay. Definitely I would stay again for the next visits to NY, 100% recommended.
NYC is always fantastic, the apartment was however not. It was either freezing cold or very warm. It wasn't possible to adjust the heat. 2 out of 6 days there was no hot water at all. No hot water = no shower! Several of the wals was not painted and the sofa was compleatly warren out. Full of holes. The entertains and stears is very dirty and the backyard is best described as slum, with thousands of smoked cigarettes laying among other waste. The worst was however all the bird droppings on old air-conditions hanging from the windows in the backyard . We are talking of years without cleaning. 40 ~ 60 cm high "mountains" of bird droppings. And then on top of that the apartment is approx. 50 meters from Manhattan brigde, with a train passing every 2 minutes, 24/7. You can not belive the noise! Manhattan John (Mike) is a nice guy, but this apartment should newer have been rented out to tourists.
John is a very accommodating host. It is difficult toilet him, understandably, as he is like other New Yorkers, a very busy man.
However, he has a system in place that works. I stayed in this flat for 10 days while looking for jobs, and had many neighbours coming and going without any problems.
The location is a 10/10. Cleanliness 9/10 decor 8/10.. Overall a great bargain for your money.
3 problems I had:
1- Never send mail, wish I knew, but it's really difficult to retrieve mail.
2- Too many people using the shower in the morning. Wake up early. (4-8 ppl)
3-Maintanance needed to be done on the bathroom, but john changed the date for that till after check out.
Overall, I'd stay there again, it was a good experience.
The apartment is equipped the necessary kitchen utensils and new floor covering / interior paint is consistent with renovation, appearance inside clean and tidy. The mattresses must be very old and you hear the springs every time you move in bed. Not used to living in the city the the frequent trains travelling less than a block away on the bridge made sleeping even more difficult. TV reception is poor with an indoor aerial only. Pipes the run from floor to ceiling rattle at times (warm at times ?noise when heating turned on also associated with hissing sound in kitchen). Only one key very difficult with 5 people. Takes a long time to get hot water through the pipes for washing up / shower. (Do not know if any laundry facilities nearby). Need to be fit to carry suitcases up 3 steep flights of stairs.
Great place to stay for a couple. Got everything you need in a nice neighbourhood. Two beds, but no sofa. Close to shops, restaurants, bars and the subway. The beds are a bit squeaky, but you can just put the mattress on the floor and problem solved. The water takes a while getting hot, and by the windows some cold could get in. But the oven makes the temperature nice inside, so not really a problem. Little Italy and Chinatown are both nearby, and the tour bus stops just outside of the apartment. 100 meters to the subway station, and both Subway, Starbucks and McDonalds are all across the street. The owners give you complete control over the apartment, and they also offer you transport to and from the airport. If you are looking for an apartment that is simple and cheap but as well decent and clean you can safely book this one. Reliable owners that do not intrude and they are flexible. Me and my girlfriend will diffidently look to John 123 also the next time we plan to go to New York.

Good location, nice room, sharing bathroom. Some days I have to wait for the bathroom. John and Lucy was very helpful and good hosters.
Apartment was in a very handy location. Well presented with everything that you need. Beds aren't the best, but are adequate.
Good value for the money. More chinatown than little Italy. Friendly area. Clean apartment. Good contact with the owner.
Nice appartment, clean, lot of space. We've got the feeling this was not a private appartment, but commercial.
