I'm a Dutch guy, 28 years old currently living in Ireland.
Carsten and his friend Samuel were absolutely delightful guests. They spent a week with us and we had a wonderful time. They are kind, respectful, quiet, fun and interested about pretty much everything. Really a joy to get to know them, and we would welcome them back anytime!
Carsten is an awesome guy and ideal house guest. He's organized, a good communicator, helpful, reliable and thoughtful, very sociable and fun to be around. He is clean, was respectful of our property, immediately washed everything he used in the kitchen, and even bought me a new bike lock in return for me allowing him to ride my bike. Although he was here for work and had long hours, we really enjoyed the time we had to hang out with him. Carsten is a seasoned traveler and a master of (website hidden), so he was completely self sufficient and needed very little help with the logistics of getting around. In fact, he taught me a lot more about technology. If he came in late at night, he was extremely quiet. My teenage son and I love having him here and he will always be welcome in our home. If you are a single woman, you have nothing to be worried about.
Carsten booked our flat on the last minute..we had some probşlems in meeting him :) but it was ok in the end ..They left the flat in very good condition and I hope they loved it:)
