My host, Yong, was very chatty and did make me feel very welcome. However, the accommodation was not as listed. I was not put up in the room in the picture but in the self-contained but rather cramped converted garage! There was an en-suite loo, handbasin and shower (which leaked onto the floor), a desk and also a wardrobe (inaccessible behind the desk). The house was quite conveniently located in a nice leafy street 10 minutes walk from the university and the busses, U1A and U1C which go between there and Southampton Central Train Station were frequent and good and took about 20 minutes each way. Breakfast was not included.
I upgraded you to an ensuite single room which was private and
that you need not share the bathroom with 4 others in the house
and sorry that you need not shut the shower door properly and
you are the only guest that complained that the shower leaked
onto the floor, So sorry that you had the problem and I had no
complaints with any host using this room in the last 3 years.
Of course I only advertise as room only with no breakfast
as per the description and again you are the first and only
guest in the last 3 years of mine running Airbnb that ask for
breakfast as all my guests know from the description that
no breakfast is included. So sorry and I did tell you before
you came so I do not think it is relevant for you to mention
it again. Thnaks.
Yong was very kind and helped me to arrive to his place. But becasue he left for personal reasons, the room he gave to me had nothing to do with the room in the photograph, I had no access to any of the facilities of the house and the bed was really uncomphortable
I gave you an ensuite room
which is more expensive than the room you
booked and as I had to go to London.
Sorry you find the bed uncomfortable and it was a new bed and you
are the first to guest to complain so far.
PLease do read the reviews
on the Airbnb under Southampton Ensuite
Yong is an amazing host. The home is comfortable, Yong was available to answer questions and provide helpful guidance to get around Southampton, but also gave me plenty of space to do my own thing. Perfect location if you are visiting Southampton University.
Yong and his wife were the perfect hosts. I felt very confortable. Yong also helped me in my first days in UK, being very flexible with the check in/ out. I recomend highly this room.
Yong was a great host, very considerate, friendly and willing to help and advise in everything. The room is very comfortable, with natural light and a view to the backyard and huge green trees, very nice. He also was very flexible with the check out as I was in a course and carrying a big backpack. Yong based the deal in absolute trust, with free movements in and out the house at any hour (just observe basic rules and common sense, like being silent late at night). I think I honoured that trust and I totally recommend this place :)

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.
