I'm a friendly russian guy who likes to travel.
Ivan and his (now :-)) husband were great guests. Very friendly and thoughtful of their surroundings, quiet, keeping things in order etc. If I'd been home more, I would definitely have taken the time to talk even more with them, and I can only recommend both as guests.
Ivan and his friend's stay at my home was my worst Airbnb experience.
I could tell that Ivan is a very polite person, but unfortunately I cannot tell the same about his friend.
I believe he did not have any idea about how does the Airbnb works.
He was inconvenient and demanding, asking many questions, requesting more tea on the 2nd day, when the one we’ve left was already over, asking for milk and food, when actually the breakfast is a courtesy and not an obligation.
They were all the time speaking loud and beating the doors.
They also asked to use the washing machine in the first day, which is not included, and because I didn’t want to be rude, I told them they could use it.
They only wash 3 t-shirts, they used the washing machine to wash only 3 t-shirts, completely non-ecologic and irrational.
On the last day before they leave they used the washing machine again, without asking for permission, and that was the main problem; they wash only 1 piece of clothes again: - one of my sheets.
They’ve dirty one of the sheets of the bed, and the stain didn’t go out.
It was not possible to clean the stain of the sheet, and at the end I had to put the bed sheet in the trash.
At the time this occurred, I've asked why they were using the washing machine without asking if they could, and they were unable to reply, they didn’t informed me about this accident, and I had to discover it when I went to clean the room after they left.
After this episode I didn’t trust them anymore and I was not comfortable in my own house with this two people, so I’ve told them that on the next day, they had to leave at 8am before I go to work.
This was the moment they've changed their attitude. They left the room and the toilet completely dirty on the day they’ve left.
They were half an hour late, so I was late to work as well.
They didn’t even say thank you or goodbye.
They were extremely rude.
And for god's sake, I live in Barcelona, of course I'm not homophobic, on the contrary. In Barcelona, everyone here is free, happy and does whatever they want.
If I was homophobic, I would not have accepted Ivan and his friend in the first place.
I’m very sorry for this sad feedback, but I wouldn’t recommend Ivan and his friend as guests.
Response from Иван:
I was ready to get this negative feedback as a reaction for my negative feedback. But I can sacrifice my airbnb reputation for other tourists' sake.
Ivan and his partner are great people. Very communicative, alert and friendly. It was like have two friends at home. Also they left the room very clean. Can you ask for more? Highly recommended
Ivan was a great guest, independent and clean, respectful of the neighbours and the house rules, and promptly replied to my messages. Highly recommended :)
Having Iban at home was so nice, he is a very nice guy, well mannered, clean, smart as well as respectful. I had a wonderful time at home talking to him and giving him some advices about barcelona. He always was smiling and willing to colaborate with the rules of the house. I highly recommend him to everyone of the hosts around the entire world. Thanks Iban for choosing my site and hope to see you soon again at home.
