I only stayed for a very short time but I will definitely be back. Naheed is super friendly, very cheerful and I felt like I was staying with a family member. Very clean and nice house. The neighbourhood is incredibly clean, nice and beautiful. Even though it may seem a bit far from the Old Town on the map, I actually walked back from there, doing a sightseeing by foot :) I hope to see my wonderful host back one day.
