Nice clean room. Gracious host. Shower not available before 7 am or after 10 pm. Note: I was charged an extra $49. by the city of Palo Alto on top of the other fees. Don't bother doing Airbnb in Palo Alto.

Very nice stay in a quiet part of town. It was only a short walk to the bus stop. Ying was very helpful and friendly. The check-in process was easy as well.

This is a very nice place as a base for people who are trying to find a place in the area. The neighborhood is very quiet but you will be at Stanford in about 30 min by bike. You can also use their kitchen.

This is a friendly house that is very conveniently located with great hosts. The neighborhood is safe and quiet; Starbucks, Safeway and 7-11 are all within walking distance. Like some other guests point out, it gets pretty chilly at night during the winter, but should be comfy during the rest of the year. In addition, the walls are not very soundproof, but the hosts are being thoughtful and I have no problem with it. Overall, it's a great place to stay and I would love to come back.

Great place to stay on a budget. The bed is small, but I slept well on it. The place was very clean and there was a stack of fresh towels outside the bathroom for you to use a new towel for every shower. The host is very nice and friendly. It's quite far from the Caltrain or any restaurants, so I wouldn't recommend it if you don't have a car/bike (unless you like walking).

Response from Ying & Sherry:
Good hosting Wes for a few days! There are several restaurants a couple blocks around the corner in mid-town Palo Alto. It is less than a 10minute walk to Starbucks, PA Coffeeshop, Mike's Cafe, Taqueria, Indochine, Subway's, Roundtable. Caltrain is a 5minute uber ride.
