I would say that Sandy is quite, respectful and in some occasions, when I talked with her, she has some interesting stories to share. Also, the flat is very well located (near to Shoreditch, an area that I find very cool and Broadway Market, a nice street where I ate excellent cheesecakes: go to La Bouche! :) ). However, to be perfectly honest, i was quite surprise to sleep in Sandy's room which was not mention in the advert nor by email. In fact, the room which is in the advert is occupied by someone else. Sandy's room is certainly quite bigger than the other but not converted in a charming/lovely way for a guest (there were some belongings in the corner or on the shelves and some clothes in the wardrobe). At the end, I have no access to the living room and the balcony during all my stay because it was temporarily Sandy's room which I found surprising also because, the pictures are in the advert (it was mentionned that there is not private living room but for me it wasn't clear that the living room of the whole flat wasn't authorized since there are some pictures of them in the advert). I would recommend to update seriously the pictures (not to put a picture of a room if the guest won't sleep in this room) and to precise more clearly the situation of the flat before the arrival of the guest. Fingers cross for your exam! Bye!

It is not very nice of you to complain by writing this here, after you have left. It would be more honest if, in future, instead of complaining after your stay has ended you expressed your unhappiness while here. You appeared to me to be very happy. There are things I could say too about you but I won't because it would be petty of me!

I had a good stay at Alexandra´s and she was very friendly. Only issue I would say is the lack of storage room in the room. Not even a bit of a closet or chest of drawers. And also, staying there for 21 days I couldn't leave any food in the kitchen or my toothbrush in the toilet, which felt a bit odd. Apart from these details the room was perfect and as described.

Response from Alexandra:
HI Francisco, sorry for that. I used to ask guests if they wanted use of the cupboard or drawers where I keep linen etc, (which I could have emptied for your use) but usually they said no, so I have got out of the habit of asking. I do prefer that toiletries are kept in the room as the bathroom is small: I will put up a small shelf for guests' use. The fridge is small but it is available for guests' food.

Fantastic stay at Alexandras house. I was given her room which was lovely and cosy. A peaceful place to do all the work I needed to do. Was wonderful to get to know Sandie too. We had many discussions in which we aired our views and opinions on the world. Lots to think about. I love a good debate and it stuck me so did Sandie. It's great to have someone who lets you come and go as you please but also is happy to sit and chat life with you. Bathroom, kitchen all in working order. Clean sheets and towels provided when I needed them. Everything was lovely xx
