I share the loft with one roommate, Maggie, 27 years old. Barely around. We are both extremely respectful and always party elsewhere. Loft is typically very quiet by 10-11pm latest. We're not typically home though. Always try and be respectful of guests.

My boyfriend Michael and I stayed at Joshua's apartment for one week over the busy new year period 27 Dec - 3 Jan. Great location, food, shopping, bars all nearby. Easy to get around, train station nearby or uber. Went to DUMBO, Manhattan, and other tourist type places. We loved the apartment and the feeling of living like a local. Thanks for sharing your awesome apartment.

Joshua was a great host, really friendly, responsive and flexible especially about my arrival time, which was a relief after a long flight. Williamsburg neighbourhood has so much to offer and is a gem to explore. Joshua recommended some interesting local spots to listen to live music. I also had the chance to briefly meet his friends and this added a little bit more to the NY experience. Overall, a great place to stay with a great host!
