My mom joined me for a one week trip to New York and after realising, the prices are pretty high at this time, we tried Wimdu out for the first time, and were really happy with our experience.
Sergej was a really friendly, open minded and funny host, who helped us whenever we had a question.
The apartment is located in a quiet area in Brooklyn, right around the corner to a metro station (and a couple of grocery stores and fast food places) which helps you getting into city center conviently .
The house is a bit old school, which I found quite charmy.We had a nice quiet room with A/C and a fan as well, which made it really comfortable, everything was clean and whenever something was missing (for example our beloved Bacon for Breakfast, or an Iron for my shirts) Sergej took care of it and organized it in the next moment.
I really liked the breakfast, he offered bagel, eggs, marmelade, toast, yam and even cereals, coffee and tea.
I really recommend the place and like to say Thank you to Sergej for the nice time we had at his place.

merci à Sergio qui est un hôte formidable, très accueillant et disponible. Vous pouvez lui demander tout ce que vous souhaitez pour vous accompagner et vous faciliter la vie dans votre séjour ! Petite chambre calme et confortable (2 grands lits) avec accès cuisine. Au pied du métro ! Bon rapport qualité prix. Audrey (France)

We waren tevreden over onze host hoor, gelukkig liet hij ons alleen in zijn appartement na de eerste dag. Hij verhuurt zijn eigen appartement,we gaan er verder niet over zeuren behalve dat het echt te klein is voor 4 mensen, 3 is max tenzij hij meer ruimte kan maken.
Het is een plek in brooklyn dat is fantastisch en daarvoor heb je dus wat in te leveren tov een hotel oid, alleen moet Sergei misschien zijn advertentie wat aanpassen, 3 mensen max en zonder ontbijt ed, dat allemaal zelf doen, shoppen in brooklyn, altijd leuk
appartement 6 (was niet helemaal schoon, keuken en koelkast)
host 7, Sergei is aardig mens
brooklyn en die plek 8,5 maar dan moet je niet zeuren is geen hotel in manhattan daar moet je tegen kunnen, wij vonden het fantastisch, subway op de hoek, midden in NY

wij hebben prima verblijf gehad ook omdat Sergei ons na de eerste dag alleen heeft gelaten daar, dat is echt wel een eis, het is te klein om met 5 mensen en sowieso met de host daar te zijn
is het iets schoner en kunnen wij er weer een week over beschikken dan gaan wij zeker weer terug
ps, we hebben Sergei niet meer ontmoet dus dit hem ook niet kunnen zeggen, wel een briefje achter gelaten

Serge was a good host, The room is OK, the beds are confortable. The kitchen is a bit small. The location is very good, there is a subway just 2 minutes from the appartment.

Ideal room for brit couple enjoying winter getaway, spacious warm nice bathroom and breakfast, serge nice guy happy to help but generally unobtrusive, good brooklyn location with subway links to nearby parks, beaches, museums, restaurants/bars and of course manhattan very close too - great way to save money over hotels!

A very spacious and comfortable room, only a few minutes walk from the subway station. Serge is a very nice host, friendly and helpful. The perfect place for a stay in NY, definitely worth the price !

My stay at Sergio could not be more pleasant, the room was very spacious, the bathroom was in perfect condition and Sergio was at all times very friendly, giving us all that we ask for explanations about the neighborhood and transportation.
The neighborhood is quiet and friendly and have fast connections to Manhattan a metro station just around the corner.
I also want to emphasize that provides a good breakfast to start the day with the strength to face a hard day of sightseeing.
Definitely value for money relationship if one day I visit New York hope to stay at Sergio.
Thanks for all your attentions

Clean, tidy room Serge is a very nice host and was always at pains to us. He showed us the residential area, shops and subway stations on the first day, sodas, we found ourselves immediately familiar. The apartment is located in a multicultural neighborhood of Brooklyn, and we felt safe here. With the subway you are in a short time in Manhattan. We will come back

Not much to share. I did not stay here as the paid reservation was cancelled before my arrival because of doubts regarding my intentions from the host. Too bad for him. The initial contact however was positive and (seemed) welcoming. That is why I still do give the property/host 1 star

Two girlfriends that celebrated our 40th birthday with a trip to NYC. We had a great stay. The room was big and on the 6th level so we had a great overview of Brooklyn.
Serge is very discrete, we never heard him and the bathroom was always available. We felt very safe and welcome, we could also lock our room when we were out.
The price for the room being only at 25 minutes to the hart of Manhattan was very reasonable and the windows could be opened to air the room. At night there is also a lot less noise than in Manhattan.
Brooklyn is at least two time as big as Manhattan and we discovered a lot of inspiring areas as Williamsburg, Dumbo and Red Hook (during the weekend).
I would certainly go back, I had good conversation with Serge on diverse subjects and had good laughs ..... Cheers Eva and Marianne
