Chen stayed in my home for 41 days during his paid internship in Manhattan during the summer. For the most part he would work during the day and be in the apartment the entire time exactly at 6p and he would speak on the phone from 6p till 2am each night where I would sometimes ask him to shut his door so I could have business calls etc. He would be in the apartment when he was not at work M-F 8am-5pm. I did have to ask him to do things a few times to be considerate to the other airbnb guests or the space which might be take out his own empty bottles or garbage, not talk each night loudly to his family or girlfriend on the phone from midnight or late as 2am if other people were sleeping or had arrived after long travel. I asked him politely to not have the house lights on each day all day long (on the weekends would be up to 15 hrs a day) or 8 hrs after work. He never told me he had any problems while he stayed in my apartment other than he said food was missing (1 ice cream bar) when I was traveling to do a music show in New Orleans and was out of town and I asked him if he wanted me to replace it because I wasnt sure who had done it and he said no. Later after leaving my home, he complained in my review about a lot of things he even offered to do like giving my cat some food (when I have a few neighbor friends that are glad to do it) because he said he loved cats. If someone doesn't tell you they are unhappy with anything while they are staying with you, I'm not sure if they were really that bad. Especially since I had 2 other rooms I could of moved him to if he was THAT unhappy with the temperature. We did have record breaking summer heat wave the worse in history too during that time. Even once I called him from New Orleans to ask him if everything was ok. He told me "yes" but my roommate then called me minutes later to say they were not. His lack of communication or NO communication was the problem and I find this a huge problem when you open your home to someone and they refuse to be honest about the way they feel so you can have a chance to correct it and make them happy. Chen was even the only one home once when the door was left completely wide open (ajar) and not locked and said it wasnt him and I just asked him to be aware that people in nyc do get robbed and didn't react in a negative way to him. He might have had a different reaction from someone else. I wish his experience was better.
