    I really enjoyed my stay here! It was very affordable and in a great location (close to lots of restaurants/shopping and the subway). Ruth was very friendly and accomodating. The room was also very cozy and clean. No complaints here!

    Thank you so much for all! I'm so sorry that I had no time to say Good Bye to you :( I can't write you any more, so I do it on this way. Maybe I come to you again next year. And I hope, then we can spend more time together that this week. I had too less time for the whole City.

    Greetings from Germany :)

    Thanks for the great stay.
    Me and my son share the bathroom in the house I expect guests to share bathroom in the house too. Unfortunately my house doesn't have a private bathroom.

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.
