"Allen & Irina are such great people, it felt more like staying with friends than renting a room from strangers. The kitchen has whatever you might need to cook your own meals (but there are too many great places to eat out at that it's a challenge to try to do so). The breakfast goodies provided in the fridge were great & helped us start our day earlier so we could keep exploring. The location was perfect. My friends were skeptical when I said I was staying in Brooklyn to visit NYC, but it was so quick & easy to get to Manhattan every day. I also felt safe coming home late at night. I wouldn't have done anything differently, except book a longer vacation!"
