I must say I wasn't impressed. Though I thought I was getting a good deal at $55, this property is more appropriate for Couchsurfer. $10-15/night would be more appropriate at the most.
Perhaps my experience would have been different if the host had been there, but he mentioned something unexpectedly came up (I don't understand how it was unexpected, as he told me he ended up going somewhere for spring break). I arrived at 11pm on a Sunday to present a paper at the law school the next morning. Unfortunately, I didn't sleep well at all, for several reasons. First, when I read that I'd be sleeping on the couch, I assumed "couch" meant pull out bed. Honest mistake on my part. Being 5'11" tall, the couch was just shy of being long enough for me. Second, I was freezing--the heat wasn't on, and I didn't learn until the next day where the thermostat was and whether I could use it (I am grateful that Gregoris is good at staying contact over email). Third, the "sheets and blankets" provided consisted of a thin blanket I assumed to be the "sheet," and blanket=one snuggie that wasn't quite long enough to cover me. I asked for more blankets, and Gregoris responded that they didn't have any, which I found bizarre. He offered to call some of his friends and have them bring over blankets, but I just cranked the heat instead and had offers of extra blankets from other friends staying in similarly priced Airbnb places. Fourth, at 2am and again at 4am, his roommate came down to the kitchen (next to the couch you'll be sleeping on), and proceeded to make some food, turn on the lights, and go back upstairs without turning them off. Finally, my attempts at sleep were punctuated on multiple occasions by odd noises from the roommate upstairs--I'm not sure if he had someone over, was playing a multiplayer game online, or was reacting to a movie. Whatever the reason, I was awoken several times by him making loud exclamations of some sort.
I slept fine the second night, partially because I only got 3 hours that first night. My third and final night was again interrupted several times by exclamations from the roommate--especially annoying since I had to be up at 3:45 to catch a taxi to get to the airport. Gregoris emailed me with a list of taxi services, which was nice, but it was sent after I had already made it back to the West Coast.
Finally, the bathrooms were quite dirty. The downstairs one by the couch was covered in hair, both on the sink and toilet, and the bowl had clearly not been cleaned. When I went to the upstairs one to shower, there was crap in the toilet.
Again, maybe this would be different if Gregoris was there. But my experience was certainly not worth $55/night. $10-15/night is being generous. This property would more properly be posted for free on Couchsurfer.
Greg was a great host, even picked my up from the Amtrak, and went out of his way to make sure I felt at home. Place was really tidy and welcoming and came with guest towels.
(It is worth noting that the private room is a sofa in the lounge.)
Greg was a nice and low key guest. Although we did not meet, he kept me aware of his travel plans and was very independent during his stay. Would recommend.
Greg was an awesome and amazing guest. He's a super cool guy who was respectful of my place and fun to have around. I'd love to have him back at anytime
Greg was a great house guest. Zero problems and we had several great conversations. Greg was headed back to greece and catching a plane from Dulles so his stay was quick and very pleasant. I look forward to having him again in the future.
