There have been a number of problems with this stay. I chose this listing because previous reviews seemed to be good. The place is low cost, and it's reasonably comfortable and close to the metro. However, I experienced considerable difficulties with the host's communication and behaviour towards me.
The evening before my flight, the host informed me that she would be out of the country for a month from my arrival day, giving me no time to make alternative arrangements for my 6 week stay. She did not clarify any arrangements for showing me the place etc and I landed after midnight without really knowing what was happening. It transpired that her friend was to show me around, and I was to share the place for 2 weeks with her nephew, who seems like a good person, however I did not expect to be sharing with a man, and did not have a language in common with him.
After that, the nephew was away as well for 2 weeks. During this time a few other homestayers were coming and going. The host messaged me to ask me to help keep common areas clean and to water her plants as well, which I did. There are no locks on bedrooms, so having different people coming and going with no host present is problematic regarding security for all. It was strange to be in someone's apartment without their presence, and I was very careful to respect the place and her belongings.
The host returned on October 2nd. On the 3rd, I was on my way back to the apartment, when I got a WhatsApp asking me where her saucepan was . I said I did not know. On returning to the apartment, I was met with a tirade of abuse, telling me that I had been cooking and therefore I had obviously taken her saucepan! I have no idea why someone would steal a saucepan of all things. She did not believe me and continued to insist I must know where her saucepan was. She messaged other guests and took them at their word- but not me. This sounds so petty, but basically I was being attacked in Spanish, which I barely understand, and the host does not speak English.
And it went on.... she accused me of having unpacked a shopping trolley without permission.... maybe another guest was trying to help out, but it was not me.
Next, she insisted for a full hour that I had used her special oil from the church without asking. She just mocked me continuously when I said I had not used it and didn’t know who had, as I had been away the previous weekend.
Next she told me I lied about having watered her plants, and I was responsible for them now being in poor condition! It would almost be funny if she wasn’t screaming at me.
She also had a problem with me trying to defend myself through all this, and complained that I should not raise my voice.
She seems like an angry person who doesn’t want guests in her house and wanted someone to vent on. perhaps she has other issues going on, I don't know, but she has no right to behave this way towards guests. We agreed eventually that she would refund me for the remaining 9 days and I would leave. She did this (although she was still suggesting that I should repay her for the saucepan!) and I had to find another place. After I left, she sent me pictures of (for example) hair in the shower tray, as though it was somehow my responsibility to clean up after everyone who had stayed. I blocked her at that point.
Choose to take your chances with this place if you wish. I would have overlooked the poor communication and absence if she had not started accusing me of things that were incorrect, and I would never normally give a poor review if at all possible.
During my stay Mila's friend help me during check-in and check-out.she was lovely.We had some issues on timings and the direction on open adress but figured it out later on.the walls are pretty thin so if the baby cries upstairs you hear them as well.the neighbourhood is pretty quiet and metro station is very close by.
Mila es muy amable y me ayudaba mucho durante mi viaje. Su casa es limpio y el desayuno es riquisimo! Tambien la casa esta cerca de las paradas de metro , hay muchos restaurantes y supermercado en el barrio. Gracias por su hospitalidad!
