Place was lovely, never met Gavin or Carlos but room was clean, had everything we needed, bathroom was clean, other guests were friendly and bus stop was a 1 min walk away. Would highly recommend .
Very nice room, close to the city centre.
So I never met the host. I'm not sure if the host was Gavin or Carlos, but neither came by during my stay. The room I had was probably the least desirable in the house. I like windows and the only window available was the small one in the ceiling. It was a small room, with a single bed that needed replacing, but adequate enough. When I needed to extend the stay because I hadn't found accommodations, Gavin was nice enough to let me do so. The neighborhood was OK. Not being from Northern Ireland, I wasn't expecting much, but save for the Russells across the street, it was incredibly quiet. Probably more family oriented, but whatever the culture was, it wasn't my particular style.
I have never met the host, instead one of his colleagues contacted me to arrange the exchange of the keys. Never met him either, only contacted by texts. There was some sort of a mix up around this and he kept getting it postponed and we ended up waiting 3 and a half hours to just to put our luggage down. By the time we got back the room has been cleaned after the previous guests. The room itself was alright, but I didn't require anything special. Few notes on this though that it was too cold and I haven't been given any information about the house. The bed was good in size but very cheap and bad quality. Worst part was the bathroom which I believe hasn't been cleaned properly for years. The water didn't go down in the shower so after a few minutes the whole bathroom was full of water. I have ended cleaning the drain myself and it was disgusting. 2 nights we have spent there and I believe we couldn't have stayed longer. I strongly advise the host to look after his listings a bit more.
We enjoyed our stay here. The host Gavin was very welcoming and the room was spacious, clean, and warm, with a good view from the window across the bay. Would be happy to recommend it to others!
He estado bien. El precio es acorde a lo que te encuentras.
Keep in mind that this is not a home where anyone lives, it is a home where all of the rooms are rented out and as such there isn't anyone on a day to day basis to take responsibility for things around the house. I never met Gavin but a guy named Carlos and a number of other nice people stopped by from time to time to clean so this is no reflection on them but my flatmates and I were without heat/hot water for two days and then without internet for a different two days due to bills not being paid. That being said, this was probably a fluke and most of Belfast is not too far away but that is due to the city not being big rather than the house being centrally located. If amenities expected had been fully delivered I would give the place a good rating.
A great place to stay in Belfast, especially if you need room for longer period of time. The host is friendly and very flexible. The place was clean and a room was very specious. Thank you!
I spent in the house of Gavin three months. I did not meet himself, but had a close contact with his collaborators.
The house is situated in a quiet part of Belfast, which is well communicated by bus with the centre. Also you can reach the city centre by a 20 minute walk. In ten minutes you reach the nice Ormeau park (nice for walking and running) and a bit further the foot and cycling path of the Lagan river. Nearby you have small food shops which are open until 23h, even on Sundays (Russels). If you prefer bigger shops you have a Tesco after a 10 minute walk.
The house itself is not on the main road (Woodstock road) but in a small quiet street. You have a fully equipped kitchen, a garden, a dining room and a living room downstairs. Upstairs you find the appartments and the bathroom. Appartements are for one or two persons. Everything in good conditions.
I recommend Gavin’s appartment both for short and long stays. It has all that I needed.
The room is clean and nice. Good location, just 15-20 mins away from city centre. Safe area. The arrangement is smooth and fine. Thank you for the information pack provided by the host, therefore I can do where to take the bus to the house from airport and city centre.
