I'm a student at Stanford, working through my PhD. I've recently moved off campus and am living in Menlo Park now!

This host's profile is quite misleading. It appears as though the host rents out one room of the apartment while staying in the other room himself -- i.e., your typical B&B arrangement. But in reality, the two roommates in this apartment regularly rent out both of their rooms. So you may be staying with a random guest, and not the host you signed up with. (A hostel arrangement, in other words.) Most Airbnb customers will probably be fine with this arrangement, but I think it's dishonest of the two hosts not to be upfront about it. I rented this room for my 60-something parents when they came to visit, and they were absolutely not okay with it.
Also, the host only left one clean towel for my two parents to use when they arrived. And he left his personal toiletries in the bathroom that they were supposed to be using.
Great host - good communication, clean bedroom and bathroom; would recommend to others
This place is clean and comfy with specious neighborhood, I was impressed by the huge golf court and the beautiful park close to the place. The friendly neighbors are mainly stanford professors and students, and the location is perfect for my intern on sand hill road. All in all, my first impression for silicon valley is great thanks to this place! Will definitely recommend it :)
Ali is very friendly and kind. The apartment was also left clean. Looking forward to host Ali again :)
Ali and his party were a pleasure to host. All clean, polite, kind, well spoken and communicated very clearly what he needed. I sure hope to host him again in the near future.
Thanks for coming and thanks for being a gentleman Ali. I give two thumbs up for him and his party.
