Hagan was very warm and helpful, and the apartment was clean and inviting. and we had an enjoyable stay. It's about a 5 min walk to the bus stop and a 10 min walk to the closest U-bahn. The only issues we had were:
1. The apartment listed 2 beds. In reality, there is just one small futon bed.
2. The apartment listed that it had internet. While technically this is true, it was quite difficult to make the internet work. When we did finally get it to work, we hit the limit after just a couple of days (of very light use) and the internet shut down.
Unprofessional and Overpriced
The flat consists of one room (aside from kitchen, hall and bathroom), in which there is no real bed (contrary to what the ad for the flat might imply, there are just two sofa beds), and has neither shower curtain nor regular curtain. 48€ a night (it seems they have raised their prices since I stayed here) for such a flat is overpriced but not out of the ordinary for Munich.
But, this was not all. I was led to believe, through a dishonest?/lazy?/misinformed? advertisement that the flat provided Wifi. Not only was this incorrect (the flat apparently provided ethernet to a computer through a USB cable), but this didn't even work. After requesting that my host sorted out this problem, I had to exchange several text messages and phone calls in order to get the following speech; the ethernet works for PC but the host has no idea about Mac's (I have a Macbook): he suggested I go into a T-Mobile shop to sort it out. This was in the second day of my 3 night stay. Since I struggle with German in any context, and even more so in a technological one, I told him to forget about the Wifi, that I could do with out, but that I felt he should give me a discount for the inconvenience and annoyance. He ignored my suggestion and insisted he would call T Mobile "early" the next day (the third day in the flat). Around 11.30, at which point I had left the flat to seek wifi in a cafe, he called me and insisted I call back. After pointing out that having left the house it wouldn't be very useful for him to explain it to me at this point, he provided me with a number I could call in order to receive instructions. This was, then, mid day on the third day, meaning that even if I managed to sort out Wifi I could benefit from it for all of 12 hours.
In addition to this, after having left the flat early the following day (I was in the process of moving into a flat permanently) I received 6/7 missed calls from the host as well as a rude text message asking if I had left the keys at the flat as promised.
I have stayed in 5 or 6 Airbnbs in the past two years, where I always had lovely experiences, and this was without a doubt the worst experience I have had yet. I highly recommend that you stay away, or look forward to a stressful and unpleasant few days.
We enjoyed the stay in Hagen's place. Although the apartment is not located in the city center, it just takes a very easy walking of about 10mins to Arabellapark station (U4) and about 13mins to central station (HBf).
The apartment is inside a quiet residential area with supermarket and Italian restaurant next to it. It's a studio apartment with kitchen, bathroom and internet. We loved the balcony with the view of a green garden.
Hagen is nice and responsive too. We will definitely recommend this place to our friends!
The apartment was in a quiet neighborhood a short ride on the UBahn from the city center. It was a pleasantly relaxing place to come home to after the crowded Oktoberfest experience. The studio apartment had a bakery and grocery store nearby. Hagen was accommodating when we added an extra guest at the last minute, and provided an air mattress that we paid a little extra for. Overall, a good stay.
