    Amazing homestay! A huge welcoming and heart warming family, really makes you feel at home. We chatted every evening about loads of things.

    The room is very spacious, with an idyllic view of the park. Transport is convenient, only 5 mins from the local train station by bus, and 30 minutes to central London.

    Every night there is always a huge family dinner. The smell of the freshly cooked food always fills the whole corridor...

    Overall a fantastic stay! Will definitely visit again by any chance!

    4 Bewertungspunkte vergebe ich für das Preis Leistungsverhältnis, es war ok. Wer eine günstige, bescheidene Unterkunft bei einer Grossfamilie sucht, welche die meiste Zeit in ihrer eigenen Landessprache spricht, der ist hier genau richtig.

    2 Bewertungspunkte vergebe ich, weil ein Teil ihrer lebhaften grossen Familie mit Kind und Baby ebenfalls in der kleinen Wohnung wohnten. Für meine dreiwöchige Sprach-Weiterbildung in England buchte ich jedoch bei einem ruhig wirkenden Host-Ehepaar in meinem Alter und nicht bei einem temperamentvollen Familien-Host. Ich hätte NIE gebucht, wäre es als Familie-Host mit Kindern ausgeschrieben gewesen!
    Ich hielt mich auch tagsüber zum Lernen meistens in der Wohnung auf. An Ruhe zum Lernen war nicht zu denken. Immer lief der TV, aus einem anderen Zimmer die Musik oder lautes telefonieren, Türen knallen oder es waren Familienstreitereien und Kindergeschrei zu hören. Auch nachts konnte ich deswegen nicht einschlafen oder wurde wach und konnte danach nicht mehr einschlafen.

    1 Bewertungspunkt gebe ich, weil mein Zimmer mehrmals durchstöbert wurde, d.h Koffer, Schubladen und Kasten geöffnet. Dabei wurden Gegenstände verstellt und wurden entwendet. Nichts kostbares, trotzdem ein NO GO!!!! Mein Vertrauensverhältnis war gebrochen, so dass ich früher abreiste, obwohl ich den ganzen Aufenthalt bezahlt habe. Taboto hatte Verständnis für meine Reaktion und entschuldigte sich.

    Zu erwähnen ist, dass dies mit Sicherheit nicht die Gastgeber gewesen sind. Auch befanden sich keine weiteren Gäste dort, nur Familienmitglieder! Trotzdem, Tabota ist der Host und ist verantwortlich für das Wohl und die Privatsphäre der Gäste.

    Tipp:
    Hätte ich einen Schlüssel zum Abschliessen während des Verlassen des Hauses gehabt, so hätte diese missliche Situation vermieden werden können.

    5 Bewertungspunkte würde ich für die wirklich sehr grosse Gastfreundschaft geben. Taboto und ihr Ehemann Hasan sind wirklich sehr gastfreundliche Menschen mit einem grossen Herzen. Von Taboto hätte ich alles erhalten und sie gab mir das Gefühl, willkommen zu sein. Dafür danke ich ihnen bestens und wünsche ihnen eine gute Zeit.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 250 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
