Very confusing review. Max was told several times I was reluctant to host him but he begged to stay as he said it was perfect for him. He did not mention his girlfriend was staying so I was surprised to find this out when I was asked to review both him and his girlfriend after their stay (the booking was made for one person). I agreed to host on principal that if he had any complaints to let me know so I could address them prior to any review. After checking in, I texted him if everything was going ok and I got the reply: The apartment is perfect. Max and his girlfriend stayed for 10 days and I regularly checked in to make sure everything was good and consistently I got good feedback from his texts and zero complaints. Myclean cleaned the apartment, including kitchen, prior to their arrival. Regarding pots and pan, the pan is brand new so I'm not sure how it was considered dirty, but I do agree on the pots and will replace them for next guests if I airbnb again. The apartment is dark, it faces an inner courtyard, but the main bedroom gets plenty of light. Yes the apartment is very big for a one bedroom in NYC, extremely quiet, and perfect location. In general I would not host Max again because he pushed me to stay but then didn't fulfill his part of verbal contract.
