The good: -the price is very affordable -the other people staying in the house are very nice. Friendly, generous, and interesting. -taxi ride offered to/from airport - due to a miscommunication that I consider MY fault, they sent someone to pick me up & I didn’t know they were coming, so I took my own cab. They were quite forgiving, which I appreciate. And their driver took me to the airport at 4am, above and beyond the call-of-duty. -there is ample shopping nearby, including a supermarket and a mall with a food court. The bad: -I understand that the posting explains it is a “community living” but I simply think there are too many people staying in one location at one time. With this comes some issues: -I know it’s Nicaragua, and one can’t expect spotless Internet service, but I think it goes beyond just the country in this case. The wifi internet is spotty - with so many people there, each using a laptop, it gets very frustrating. -I was told, after my booking for a bedroom was confirmed, that I would NOT in fact get a bedroom, but would be sleeping in essentially an alcove in the living room with flimsy fabric taped to the ceiling for “privacy”. They had overbooked, and the hosts had family visiting as well. In their defense, they DID tell me this in an email before I arrived, and (I suppose) I could have cancelled/changed bookings, but with only three days or so before arrival, this didn’t feel like an option for me. It felt way too late for this. I’ve had other AirBnB hosts accidentally overbook (I’ll be honest, I don’t feel it was an accident here) and they’ve done everything in their power to correct it, including giving up their OWN room to make me as comfortable as I could be. Not here. -I was then told I would only have to sleep in the living room for a day or so. But with all the people coming and going, this did not happen. A person moved out of a room, someone else moved in, and I stayed in the living room…So many people coming and going, it was hard to keep track of who was supposed to be where sometimes. -Again, in their defense, many of their guests are long-term guests, so in a way it makes sense to ensure those guests always have a bedroom. -AND to be clear, the hosts offered me a discount (which I basically transferred to use as my taxi fare to the airport when my stay was over). So it’s not that I was treated badly; I wasn’t. But I didn’t appreciate the lack of communication/change in what was promised me. -Because there are so many people using the house, the house gets dirty quickly. Particularly the bathroom and kitchen. It’s Nicaragua and it’s summer - not keeping those rooms clean causes further issues which should be obvious. And because many of the guests...
desafortunadamente no te pudimos dar la habitacion porque surgieron imprevistos y no te pudimos avisar con tiempo. Por lo que te sugerimos que fueras a un lugar que te conseguimos, pero vos aceptastes quedarte. Tuvimos unos dias particulares con algunas visitas a la casa previo a la Semana Santa, pero eso no significa que la casa sea como la describistes por unos dias que te quedastes ahi. Sinceramente te pedimos grandes disculpas.
Todo lo mejor para vos!
My host, Fatima, was extremely accommodating, answering all of my questions before I arrived, and being very flexible about my arrival time (which I had to change a couple of times). She gave me her personal phone number so that I could call her if I needed anything. She was very sweet, and a gracious host. There were quite a few guests at the house when I stayed there for the second time, but the house was mostly quiet. The one resident I met was helpful and offered his own fan, when the one in my room wasn't working. Though I was feeling under the weather, I had a pleasant stay at this house.
Fatima was in regular contact with me in the few weeks between when I booked and when I arrived. She was extremely helpful, and arranged for me to have her friend, who drives a taxi, pick me up at the airport, let me in to the house and show me to my room. I did not meet any other guests or residents, which I assume was because I showed up close to 11 PM and left around 7:30 AM. The house was very quiet! The room was clean, with a fan in it, and a fresh sheet. The wifi password was written on the fridge, there was filtered water available, and in the morning I was able to use the kitchen to make tea. I had a very pleasant experience at Fatima & Jupi's home.
Muy bonito todo, la casa tiene espacio bastante lindo, Fatima nos acogió muy bien con una gran sonrisa, ademas de muchas comodidades, si ocupamos un taxi ella lo consigue.
cerca de varios lugares turísticos bien bonitos.
I had a nice stay with Jupi and Fatima, though I never met them personally. They arranged a driver, Johnny, to pick me up at the airport, and he was there, though my flight was 5hrs delayed. He had the keys to the flat, and even carried the luggage for me, and drove me back to the airport for free the next day. Great guy! The bed was clean, the house nice and room spacious, but it's placed in the middle of the building, so you hear everything that is going on. The guys who live there long-term was very friendly.
The house is like a friends house, some who come and those who go in a nice atmosphere of meeting people and sharing informations about own itinerary or practical things you need to know like transport prices...or interesting places to visit.
