    toilet bowl broke down unexpectedly, thermal flask is totally corroded, entire apartment has a musty stench, room has no ventilation at all (no fan, no air con) and as something happened back at home, i had to fly back a day earlier. Since it was an unexpected event, I kindly talked to Patric and asked if he could give me a refund for a day due to this and he upright rejected the idea, and simply shrugged his shoulders and said :" I simply can't give you a refund".

    The host is very nice, and they let you have your own privacy. Good place for public transport too. Will come back if I visit London again.
