Host was processional and precise - the room was perfect for a last minute concert getaway. Had previously read a review/minor complaint about the bathroom - this wasn't an issue at all. Would absolutely stay again!
Host was friendly and accommodating -- it was a last minute stay. Room was less than comfortable. There's a fairly strong musty odor which permeates the room and the bedding. The bed is extremely hard. The room exits to outside and you need to go back in to use the shared bathroom.
Accurate description. Superb stay, 10/10. I had just moved to the country and was looking for 1 or 2 nights to crash. Room had 100% privacy, but Johann was also available and extremely helpful in getting me on the right path. Great neighbourhood, close to many facilities and stores.
johann is a great scientist, we like his house, we are very interested in his work, we are very happy to communicate one night, while we poor English, but we communicate with each other for a long time, to share our journey and hobbies. johann very patient, very friendly .He reply to our messages are also very fast. We are very happy together.
This was a simple separate room from the main home with NO restroom. You have to leave the room, walk outside and enter the main home. I struggled with that reality. Providing guests with a flash light would work. There was not a flat sheet between the comforter and the bed. But then again, these details are important to me. The host was sweet and welcoming. Having the separate room was convenient and access to public transportation was a BIG plus!!! I wish I would have talked to the host more. He sounded like he would have great stories. But I had to quickly get online for a meeting and then leave to another meeting. I left super early and never saw him again.
