I am a freelancing musician and theatre artist from Taiwan.
2 days before needing a place to stay, Tao found my listing and made a direct pre-booking, for him and 5 friends of his. I decided to temporally decline to be sure he had understood what I was offering, as my flat was not that big. After some emails exchanged, he made a new pre-booking, and I was happy to accept it this time.
Tao was the one in charge of the group, and has really good communication skills, writing me on airbnb when he could, sending SMS when not having Internet, or directly calling me when in need of a direct answer. I appreciated this a lot.
As well we could manage well the time of check-in and check-out to be sure it would fit both our agendas.
As this studio-apartment is 4 floors below mine, I spent less time with them that I usually do with my guests, but my neighbor told me there was no problem whatsoever for him (hence they had been quiet).
As well I could understand by myself that they were definitely autonomous, respectful & easygoing.
All the best to you and the others, Tao.
If you are ever back here during my stay, you're welcome back!
