Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Lester was a superb host and made my stay in Austin very pleasant and enjoyable:

    1. He had excellent recommendations for food
    2. We did brunch together and I met several of his friends
    3. He hooked me up to watch the season premier of Game of Thrones

    Even better, when I left a couple of dress shirts accidentally, Lester was more than happy to ship them back to me when I sent him a UPS label.

    Simply put Lester went above and beyond the duty of merely hosting me and ensured that I had a wonderful experience in Austin. I would absolutely recommend him to any travelers.

  • I was in town for the marathon, and Lester's place is in a convenient location as everything I needed was in walking distance.

    I enjoyed my two days in Austin at Lester's.

  • We had a really fun time at Lester's abode. He is a friendly, funny guy! The house itself is really comfortable and in a good location. Lester has heaps suggestions of great places to eat/visit but also gives you the space to explore Austin. Would definitely stay with Lester again!

  • Lester's place was great! I recommend staying here if you're interested in being close to the SOCO district in Austin. I had great communication with Lester and he has great tips on where to eat and visit if you're a first timer in Austin.

  • This place is great! Lester is great, the location is great, the price is great, the house is great..i could go on forever. But really, he's minutes from the main South Congress Hub, he knows everyone in town, you couldn't ask for more! He even cooked me a fabulous meal. I had a great time staying here and can't wait to come back.

  • Lester was an amazing host... I booked with him about 4 hours before I arrived, as I flew from NYC to Austin. He recommended a ton of suggested spots around Austin, as it was my first time in town, and made me feel quite welcome.

    Thanks Lester!

  • Lester was an incredible host who showed me and my girlfriend a really good time in Austin, from places to eat and drink lester had a plethora of good suggestions.
    We felt at home in the house which is neat and well air condition, a good thing for us as we're not used to the heat.
    Location is fantastic, very easy to walk or bus.
    Would definitely recommend!

  • I stayed with Lester over July 4th weekend. My brother's house was full I was looking for a place to stay where my girlfriend and I could have our own room. I didn't know what to expect, having never used Airbnb before, but Lester's house worked out great. He was not home when I arrived, but the place was easy to find. It is in a great location, a couple blocks off South Congress. Finally met Lester the second night of my stay when we arrived home at 2am. He was very nice and even brought us back some tacos from his late-night taco run - they were delicious. He was never in the way and for the most part felt like had our own house when we were there - although most of the time we were out doing things. The only negative part of our stay is that the back room does not get as good AC as the rest of the house, so woke up sweating the first morning - adjusted the thermostat the next night. Overall, I had a good experience and would recommend Lester's room.

  • I had a great stay with Lester! The room was quiet and comfortable, and his house is in a great location for exploring Austin. I only had the chance to have a beer with Lester on his back porch my final night, but he seems like a chill dude. I would stay here again!
