Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • I stayed there plus three friends, it was great. Chang was really helpful. The apartament is really big and comfort, but the bedding seemed not so clean. Also, the neighborhood was a little bit weird at night. Overall, we had a good time.

  • Stay was fine. Glad to have a private room/bath, Kai was a great host.

    July 2014
  • Kai is really a amazing host! He is very helpful and welcoming! It was a pleasure to stay at his home for a couple of days! The bedroom and the bathroom are both very clean! And there are a lot of good restaurants in the area!

  • Kai graciously let me stay in his spare bedroom after a last minute decision to stay in Oakland during a business trip. And by last minute, I mean I didn't contact Kai until 8:30pm and by 9:30 the place was cleaned up and ready for me. Kai is very friendly and was available when I had a question or needed something for my room. Great location and the 6th floor deck has a great view of Oakland.

  • We decided to stay at this place at the first time because it was affordable and dog friendly, but after we checked in we appreciated the convenient location, community transit, roof view and access to kitchen and laundry (we were in a road trip so that was important). Kai is very nice and easy going person - we were late at our first day and he changed his schedule to check us in. The building has a huge roof deck with a spectacular view. There are few good restaurants nearby and super cheap grocery shopping. Street and commercial parking is also very affordable, though you should pay close attention to the street signs(no parking 3-6 am on certain site of the street on even/odd days in a week)
    Thank you, Kai!

  • Kai was great!

    June 2014
  • We enjoyed our stay at Kai's place. Kai was very helpful - gave us tips on places to visit, allowed us to do our laundry there, etc. Food was easily accessible as well. We enjoyed walking to the nearby Farmer's Market on a Friday morning too.

    Only downside was the parking in the area. Parking on the street below the building was slightly confusing for us as the parking terms differed from day to day. Free overnight parking usually ends at 8am hence we had to get up at 8am daily to feed the meter.

    However, it was a pleasant experience overall!

    June 2014
  • Kai did everything possible to be accommodating, including driving me to the bus station to pick up my stuff! He was very friendly (as was his little dog) and responded very quickly to any questions I had. An excellent host.

    June 2014
  • This was my first experience using airbnb. Kai's place was fantastic to stay at. Nice, secure building, close to all transportation and tons of places to eat and remarkably quiet. Kai made me feel very welcome and willing to engage in talks on just about anything. It was a great time and I would recommend to anyone.

  • Room is exactly as pictured. Good accommodations. The private bathroom was beautiful. Thank you for hosting us.
