The reason my score isn't full of five hearts
Due to the COVID-19 emergency situation in Tokyo, guests were able to receive refunds for cancellations initiated by the host. However, this resulted in my cancellation score decreasing

    Jihye war einfach wundervoll. Trotz viel Arbeit hat sie sich super um uns gekümmert. Jihye hat uns mit Freuden die koreanische Küche gezeigt und mit uns über unsere Leben gequatscht. Alles war super sauber und ordentlich. Das Bett ist bequem und der Raum sehr geräumig. Es hat sich wie Zuhause angefühlt! Wie wenn Mama nach einem aufregenden Tag mit Tee und warmem Essen auf einen wartet. Wir haben es geliebt und kommen gerne wieder! Danke für die schöne Zeit!

    We had some really nice days with Jihye. She is very friendly and helpful and we felt very comfortable in her apartment. Jihye told us many things about Tokyo and gave us lots of advices what to do and where to go.
    We spend one great day together strolling around with her and some friends and learned a lot about their lifes in Tokyo.
    We would always love to come back to Jihye and her friends.
    Thank you so much Jihye!

    My homestay experience with this host was simply excellent. She exudes such warmth and kindness that it radiates to her home. She is also great conversationalist that there is no boring moment with her. I will definitely come back to her homestay.
