Lots of cooking equipment under the sink if that's your thing.On the smaller side, but we keep it clean. There are tiny cracks and smudges on the tiles (probably ancient), but we scrub it thoroughly.

1 bedroom of 3 available. 1 bathroom. 2 blocks away from Union Square and all major subway lines. Bedroom has a full sized bed, heater, and air conditioner. Wifi included. No cable TV, but the XBox connects to Netflix, Hulu and HBO Go.

NOTE: The room is currently unfurnished besides a full sized mattress with comforter and pillows. I can throw in a desk and a chair to make it a little less sad-looking, but in general, don't be expecting the Ritz.

The space

The apartment is in on the 4th floor of an old but well maintained walk-up building. My bedroom is spacious and includes an air conditioner; the kitchen is well stocked with cooking equipment, which you are welcome to use; the bathroom is small, but we do a good job of keeping it clean and hope you will do the same. The living room is pretty big (for Manhattan), and there's a large TV with an Xbox, Blu-ray player, and a giant selection of DVDs and Blu-rays (including six seasons of The Simpsons, the classic ones).

Interaction with guests

I rent out this room when I am out of town, but I am very easy to reach via email and cell. And my two roommates will be around to help with any pressing issues, or to provide some friendly recommendations for places to check out in the neighborhood.

Other things to note

- Please provide your full name and occupation so I can verify your identities on Linkedin, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), etc.
- I'll provide soap, toothpaste and clean towels.
- Wifi is weak in my bedroom but strong everywhere else.
- There is an air conditioner in the living room, a radiator in the living room and another in my bedroom, as well as a portable heater that's extremely effective.
- In the winter, the radiator in the living room makes pinging noises once in a while. As long as you're not planning to sleep on the couch, it shouldn't bother you much.
- On our block, there are: two diners, two sushi restaurants, a takeout Chinese place, a takeout Mexican place, a pizza parlor, and an American restaurant. All of them are at least 'pretty good' and I swear that none of them stink up the apartment. There is also a grocery store across the street and a convenience store right downstairs. Though I don't recommend it, you could survive quite comfortably never leaving this block.
- Our landlord is extremely attentive and will usually arrive at the apartment within hours to deal with any problems (not that we have problems too often).

This room was not available so Ayan offered us another room and gave us some cash back after a short discussion. I am satisfied about the room and Ayan is a responsible host. And the dog is very adorable too even though he seemed to love my girlfriend more than me :(

Host was very nice and accomodating. This is a good place to stay in a great location. Very easy to get to the east village but also a convient transit hub to midtown and beyond. Would stay again.

This room is pretty much as described - a bachelor pad in a fantastic location. We didn't get to meet Ayan, but he was helpful over the phone and email, and his roommate Jim was around to get us checked in. Based on our experience, though, I wouldn't rely on using the kitchen. The sink was full (overflowing) with dishes when we arrived, and all of the same dishes, plus some new ones, were still there five days later when we left. Maybe this was one-off holiday season craziness - I have no way of knowing. Overall, the room is great value, especially for the location, but maybe not one for neat freaks.

Response from Ayan:
Thomas, I cleaned all the dishes and the kitchen before I left, as I do before any guest arrives. Any dishes you saw in the sink were my roommate's, and I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. In the future, I'll be sure to ask him to keep his stuff clean. Thanks for the heads up.

The apartment was really well located within walking distance of where we wanted to go, so perfect for Greenwich Village, Soho and the East Village. As it's very close to Union Square you can get also around the city with ease on the subway. The apartment itself was well lived in but fine for a night or two as a place to collapse after a long day. Ayan was a nice host, although quiet, he did give us some recommendations for food and we would highly recommend taking them. As a last minute booking he kindly accepted so we are grateful for that, he was flexible with check in and check out and allowed us to keep our bags there the next day!Overall we enjoyed our trip, thanks Ayan.

Ayan's apt is located in lower Manhatten, very close to Union Square. Ayan wasn't there but his roommate helped me check in. His roommates were chill and his place was quiet. If you are in NY, his place is close to alot of stuff.

We only stayed for the night and it was perfect for that. We were not aware of the 4 narrow flights of stairs that we had to climb but it didn't bother us. However, if someone had knee or leg problems, this could have been an issue. The host let us borrow his key so we could go out for dinner and come back without disturbing him which was nice. He provided us with fresh towels, toothpaste and 1 dove body wash bar which was a pleasant surprise.

My name is Ayan. I work in the finance division of a film publicity firm, mostly cause I'm obsessed with films. But I swear, I'm relatively normal. I like traveling, running, reading and cooking. I'm very laid back, and always up for trying new things.
