It is pretty simple. You are allowed to use all the apartment areas (except my room), I only ask you clean after yourself, specially washing your dishes. Also I will not provide you with food, but if you need to use anything from the kitchen, you are welcome as long as you have the courtesy of asking in advance. You can smoke in the property, but not inside the house.

Juan Carlos was awesome! Very helpful with suggestions about where to go in the city and what to eat. The place is very safe. The location was perfect just a 10-15 min walk to downtown and it's surrounded by a lot of cute restaurants.

Juan Carlos is friendly and super intelligent! He was totally there for me when I needed him. His place is nice and clean and the room I had was very comfortable and has a big, bright window. The neighborhood is alive with people!

I had a good stay for two days. Juan Carlos was a very nice guy. It's a simple, basic place to stay. I used the laundry and dried my clothes on the lines in the back yard. It's located very close to some great restaurants. The trains come early, and in the late afternoon, 5 or 6 each time. They woke me, but I was happy to be up early.

I had a great stay at JCs place. I always try read the reviews then make my decision based on that and common sense. So l had a good idea about the place and it was as expected. The neighbourhood was awesome great restaurants and bars less than a stone throw away. I used Uber to get to his place from the bus terminal and it was super cheap! Tip... I didn't have internet so l went to a restaurant right by the bus terminal and used their wifi to order an Uber.

House is simple in very upbeat neighborhood. Location is great. It could get noisy with the train. Simple single guy apartment. I would recommend for young male crowd.
