Upon arriving, he was extremely vocal in his criticism of the apartment, which matched our photos at that point in time exactly and was kept meticulously clean.
I did not feel that he was very respectful of common spaces as he left his belongings everywhere-- our window sills were covered in his things, and his suitcase was left spread open in the center of our livingroom.
He even had the audacity to, without asking, remove a number of my shirts from my closet, even after I had already cleared a space for him. He walked up to me with my shirts in his arms and said something along the lines of, "Here, I need more space."
After being provided with a fully functioning duplicate set of keys, which I tested, and have lent out to other guests without issue, he returned to the apartment late and freaked out claiming that they did not function for him, even though he was able to make the keys work.
Vijay was easy to communicate with and very easy to host. We enjoyed getting to know him -- though I wish I hadn't been so busy while he was here! We'd host him again any time.
Vijay is a very friendly and intelligent person. It was very nice to chat with him. He left the room very clean. We would recommend him to other hosts.
