Apartment Share Rental: 2 months

I spent a month and 3 weeks in the building and I enjoyed my stay pretty much. The room is nice and cozy with a wide wardrobe and enough space for everything. The only problem is the WiFi, which is pretty shaky, the signal going back anf forth many times, but the owners are trying to fix the problem. Other issues were the fact that both bathrooms were not entirely clean, and the kitchen has only a small table, not that comfortable if you want to sit and eat your meal. But apart from this, everything else was perfectly ok; whenever I had a problem, a question or a need, the owners were extremely kind and willing to solve everything. Also the other room mates were very nice and I enjoyed good conversations in the evening with all of them. with
The building is close to many shops where you'll find basically everything at reasonable prices, the laudry is very near as well. The subway is more or less 7 minutes (2 or 5 train) or 13 minutes (Q train) and Manhattan (Wall Street and Greenwich Village) is something like 30 minutes away. All the neighbourhood is quiet and safe at every hour of the day, and you're 2 miles away from Prospect Park - especially in the summer, an amazing place.
I definetely recommend the room if you are planning to visit New York.

What needs to be improved:

1. They need to clean the bedroom, at
least twice a month.

2. They need to clean the bathroom, especially
the tub-shower, it is very dirty.

3. They need to take care of the
front of the house, there is permanent trash in the yard.

4. They need
to put a right sized door in the bedroom, like this no light will enter
into the bedroom from the hallway, this didn't let me sleep.

5. They
need to put a mattress that is at least minimally comfortable.

6. They
need to have a bed that has a normal structure and never breaks.

The
roommate was a very good person, a young Mexican student."

Thank you for your review, Fernando. We really appreciate the feedback and will use it to further improve the accommodation. I would also like to respond to some of your comments

We do clean the bedrooms at least twice a month, but I will pay extra attention to their cleanliness now. I'm sorry you thought the bathrooms were dirty - we usually keep them clean. We also don't have trash on the yard, although we do have some decorations there to make it look nicer.

We have taken note of the door of your bedroom, and we will fix that. We also have spare mattresses available for tenants, and we would have been happy to switch your mattress to another one if you had come to us with your concerns. We also have spare beds available for tenants. We're happy to help our tenants have as comfortable a stay as possible, and we hope that they can come talk to us if they have any problems.

Thanks again for your review.

Thank you for the feedback, Fernando!

I'm sorry to hear of the issues you had during your stay. We recently sent one of our agents to check the accommodation and to meet with the owners, to make sure that these issues are being resolved. The owners are eager to improve anything that their guests may be having problems with during their stay.

The tenants were discreet and there wasn't much interaction between the other tenants living here.

Thank you for the feedback! Yes, it's not a social accommodation, everyone who stays here usually keeps to themselves. Hope you had a great stay.

This owner was very welcoming. When I came to see the apartment, she picked a flower from the tree in the courtyard to put it in my room!
Bedding is not bad, provided linens and towels were rather clean and there was basic furniture (dresser, desk...) and more (dishes...) to live comfortably.
However, if you are looking for an apartment share (where share means "friendly and welcoming community"), this may not be a place for you because you won't see the other roommates very often. This is more like a house with individual rooms but without a shared common space: there was only room for one person at a time in the kitchen (and most of the roommates were eating in their rooms), and the living room on the ground floor was unavailable (locked). The cleanliness of the inside of the closets may need to be improved. They were dusty, some walls had holes in them and some joker wrote insults on the panels in several rooms.
Finally, the bathroom ventilation is broken for several months. Bare electric wires are coming out the walls (sparking at each contact - don't touch them or you could get electrocuted!). The bathroom is always humid and smells humidity. Ceiling paint is really starting to chip off.
Overall, this is more a place for people who want to be alone and except for the bathroom, the rooms are generally in good condition and well maintained. I would like to stress one more time the friendliness and flexibility of the owner, who was truly lovely!
Thank you to her...

Thank you for your feedback, we have resolved the problems you identified. We just had a professional photographer from New York Habitat come to take updated pictures. We clean each room twice a month, but only when you are around and with your permission, so as not to invade your privacy. Your closet may not have appeared completely clean, as there is a paint stain on the carpet in your closet. I will replace the carpet in the closet. As for someone writing on the wall in the closet, everything has been repainted, as the New York Habitat photographer and agent can confirm. I'm so sorry that the bathroom was a problem for you, I wish you had let me know, I would have fixed any problems immediately! The problems with the bathroom have all been resolved, as the New York Habitat agent can confirm. Thank you for your kind remarks, we will continue to improve.

Thank you for your feedback, Lucille! I'm glad you really liked this host. Further to your review, one of our agents and photographers went to visit this accommodation to check to make sure the issues you mentioned had been resolved, as well as to take more pictures, to more accurately portray this accommodation. According to our agent, the closets were clean and the host assured us that they will make sure the closets remain clean. Our agent found that the dustiness had been cleaned and the walls have been fixed and painted, so there are no holes and no writing on any of the walls. Our agent could not find any bare wires and the owner was not aware of any. The bathroom ventilation had been fixed as well. The host has repaired any chipped paint. This host is committed to providing a wonderful stay and assured us that guests should not hesitate to let them know if there are any issues during their stay, and they will fix the problems immediately. Thank you for your feedback!

Very big and comfortable bedroom in a very quiet area of Brooklyn with many and various stores that are open very late and for most of them 24/7. The roommate hosts are incredibly kind. Buses Q - 2 and 5 are just a few blocks away and Beverley Road station is 35 minutes from Times Square with the express train.

Quality apartment share and the hosts are remodeling the bedrooms one after the other - very cozy I spent 2 pleasant months. I'll insist on the fact that was sharing with roommates who respected the apartment and the common areas such as the kitchen. When everyone plays ball, it can only be positive.

I'll rate value for money 4.5 stars out of 5 just not to give 5.
