Loni and Russ's place was just as shown. It was very clean. The bed was comfortable. The kitchen was nicely stocked for cooking in. The place is close to public transportation and we all felt very safe in the neighborhood. Check in was easy, and communication was great. I would definitely return, and also recommend Loni and Russ's place.

Loni & Russ's place is centrally located. It's a nice 19th century brownstone house with wooden floors and they are great host. Very lovely! There's extra storage space for bags, the kitchen has all the essential amenities the house is very centrally located with easy access to shops, bus stop and walking distance to most things. It's a great stay if you're coming to attend Columbia. I would definitely stay there again.

This was a good place to explore New York from. There were good subway and bus links into the center of Manhattan. The flat was comfortable with good facilities to make our 9 day stay a very enjoyable experience. Recommended.
