from santa monica.
David was a great host, nice spot, enjoyed my stay.
David is a great host and the room looks exactly as pictured, the futon is comfortable.
I enjoyed the stay - the location is convenient and I used it as a base for an apartment hunt. The room did the job - nothing fancy, but decent for the price. David was very welcoming and flexible, and I'd stay here again. I'd note the room is one of 3-4 in a big apartment, and the common areas get a bit untidy, but it's good value for the price.
Great, low key place to crash while I was apartment hunting.
David's place was easy to reach by bus. I had to find a place on short notice, and though the room I wanted was occupied, David gave me another room for the same price, which would actually have been more expensive. I had my own set of keys and so freedom to come back whenever I wanted.
On the plus side: David was easy going, and when I approached him with questions, he was helpful and uncomplicated.
On the minus side: the room wasn't clean, and somehow the bed linen and sheet looked very much used, with stains in them.
On the very minus side: the floor really smelled ghastly. Whenever I came back from outside I had to hold my breath until I reached my room, and then I would open my window during the night to get better air in my room. It really stank. Actually my things and bag still smell like that, two days later...
So, I would recommend David rather more for easy going guys who don't care too much about hygiene than for girls who do. Aside of the smell it was actually nice.
David (and all other flatmates) was nice and flexible. So I guess you will be able to agree even in difficult cases. Location is also nice - 10 min bus drive to center- as well as the house - old victorian-styled building. Anyhow I want to warn anyone with high cleanness sensibility. Maybe it will be not the best option for you.
david is nice and friendly, and his place is in a good location in SF. but it feels like there had been an earth quake there, so much stuff thrown everywhere.
David was great. Really hospitable and flexible. The location is really convenient. His apartment is big and a great place to stay.
David and his roommates were all very cool and friendly.
