A few days before arriving, Rebecca asked if would mind staying in her other loft space down the street from where this listing was. No problem, she sent pictures and the place looked clean and fine. So this review is about her other place on Seigel St in Brooklyn.
The good: Rebecca is a friendly person and good at communicating with her guests. Booking, coordination and checking in and out went fine. We stayed in Rebecca's room in a shared loft space with 2-3 other girls. Her room was tidy and looked fine.
The bad: Her place is one of those Brooklyn loft spaces which have been cheaply converted into shareable spaces. The bedrooms are basically made up of super thin dry wall construction with no windows (except small windows in the top). There is no sound isolation so you can hear everything. We woke up several times in the night when her room mates would come home drunk and re-heat food in the microwave. Even though they tried to stay quiet. You just hear everything. The rooms don't have any windows, except a few bizarre small windows in the roof into the living room and the other rooms. This mean, if any of the roommates turn on a light in their own room it will light up your room and keep you awake.
The ugly: The place is a complete mess! There is trash everywhere and I have no idea when they cleaned the last time. There is a trashed ikea bed in the living room and beer bottles, plastic bags and trash piled up everywhere.
I didn't rent the living room so in my opinion they can do what they want in their shared space. But you would have thought they would at least want to take out the trash or something when having AirBnb guests over. We were really disappointed by the state of the bathroom since it was a room we actually had to use; it was disgusting. We called Rebecca out in this when we checked in and she did a brief clean up the day afterwards.
I am sorry for this negative review but I believe it is important to be honest towards the host and future guests. I would not recommend renting this place as it is not ideal for hosting guests and the people living there do not seem to make an effort to keep the place tidy and welcome for guests. Maybe you would like it if you are in the beginning of your 20s, looking for partying in New York and don't care about where you crash at night.
