I am a Computer Science Master student from Munich, Germany, currently spending a semester abroad at UC Berkeley. I enjoy travelling, hiking and good food.
Simone was fantastic
We welcome her to our Ohana and look forward to seeing them again
I totally regret not being able to meet Simone and her traveling companion. They were great communicators and very active, out and about seeing the sights. They left the hostel in the best of shape and are always welcome to stay with us.
Simone and Stefan were great guests. They were fun, friendly and adventurous, taking advantage of the many amenities the Big Island of Hawaii has to offer, including Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park and Kehena Beach (a popular black sand beach where Spinner Dolphins often come to play). They speak fluent English and it was very easy to communicate with them even though German was their first language. They were very polite and respectful in our home and even insisted on washing their dishes after we told them as their hosts, that was our responsibility. They were careful not to waste water and respected our house rules which we very much appreciated. They also took very good care of our house when we were out doing other things and left their room in excellent condition when they checked out. They arrived just one day before another German couple checked into our other room. They shared a few breakfasts with our other German guests and it was nice to hear the four of them engage in pleasant conversation. It was a pleasure to host Simone and Stefan and we would be happy to host them again the next time they find themselves in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Thank you, Simone and Stefan.
