Yong was a very good host. However, the room I was given wasn't one of the rooms pictured; it was in fact notably smaller. Also, it smelled musty.
Everything was fine. Yong is very nice and the accommodation is in a great position for the Southampton University. Thanks!
Yong and Becky were gracious hosts. I had very little trouble finding their house when I came off the bus. The unit was self contained as described, with a comfortable single bed. The ensuite was compact and toilet a little cramped, but hey, you don't want to sit there all day, do you? Yong showed me where the shops were, helped me with my laundry and we had many interesting conversations. Their home is near a large park and we went for a long walk there. I would be happy to stay here again.
As a young woman traveling by herself, I felt very safe with Mr. Tan. He was very nice and accommodating- always asked if I needed anything and how my stay was going. The room was clean and came with my own bathroom. I stayed for two weeks, and halfway through, he cleaned the room and changed the sheets which was great. The location is about a five minute walk from the bus stop to go to the airport or the city center. Access to the kitchen was great as well! I had a great stay.
I was staying down in Southampton for the weekend to visit the New Forest, Yong was very friendly and although the room was smallish, it had it's own entry and was very convenient. Check out was very flexible and Yong was very accommodating, the only criticism was that the room could have been a little cleaner.
Yong is a wonderful host, very accommodating and helpful with tips regarding the area. The ensuite room is comfortable enough, however it is a bit on the small side compared to the other rooms inthe house, due to the fact that it contains the bathroom as a section within the room itself, making it a bit crowded to move around, especially if you need some space on the floor for your luggage. Everything is clean and tidy, the shower has instant water heating yielding good hot water pressure. The bed is comfortable. There is a small desk+chair if you need to work. Overall a very positive experience for me.

About the Host, Yong
I am an avid traveller and particularly enjoy travelling to the Far East. I have visited Thailand, China, Cambodia, Australia and New Zealand. Last year I particularly enjoyed visiting Hong Kong and Shanghai. The last place were I travelled to was a little closer to home; this summer I went to Switzerland and Italy, staying at the beautiful Lake Como for a week.
