I spent a lovely week at Yusef and Afsha' house.
they hosted me very friendly and were very kind. They gave me advice about my visits and took time to have conversations together even if they were busy. My room was very clean and comfortable. The house is located just five minutes from a bus stop so it's easy to go to the town centre. I strongly recommend it.
A very lovely staying in Yusef and Afsha's home. My hosts have been so kind to speak with me! Their house is very cosy and the guest room is very comfortable. Thank you for all.
Very very good experience! I really appreciated every moment spent there. Yusef, his wife and daughter are very kind, so nice, helpful, user-friendly and very sociable people. If I could, I would do this experience again in the same family without hesitation. Moreover, the comfort of the room, the kindness of the cats and the quiet of the neighborhood are ideal to live perfectly. I would like to tell them thank you for everything and I hope to see you soon! :)
I had a very pleasant stay with the family. It is a quite and clean area, the family is very helpful, caretaking and easy to get along with. I felt very homy and comfortable. Shops around are not really in walking distance but busstops are nearby in all directions so it is in a good location as well. Afsha is very experienced host and open minded. I highly recommend it.
I would say that Yusef is one of the best hosts I've ever lived with. He has excellent taste and the room was in fantastic condition with a nice reading table and shower just the way I like it. He was also very kind to me and very homely..He's a person of class as such rhe apartment was classy and spotless .I would recommend him a million times if I have to.
It was my first experience and I'm happy that I decided live there. Regarding to price it wasn't expensive for this cozy,quiet and save location. Yusef with Afsha and their daughter Alcia are so kind and friendly. I liked talk with. Also they help to me improve English. It was a nice experience and I can say that they are now my friends. I would highly recommend their house for living for long as well as for short time. Thanks for everything. With respect Rauza
First homestay and I would repeat it any time. Amazing host family with a very cosy house. I enjoyed the time in Manchester a lot, especially with them and I would really like to come back.
This family is very friendly, lovely, and helped me all the time (to improve my English and about others things). I liked very much and I recommend this family for people all over the world that will visit Manchester.
It was nice meeting Yusef and his family. the room was very confortable, they were very kind with me and I appreciate a lot their hospitality
