I've traveled quite a bit, and lived abroad. One thing I really enjoyed was getting to know other young travelers in the hostels I stayed in.
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
nice cozy apartment
This was a nice place to stay, very happy. With the location and the friendly welcome. Watch out for street cleaning if parking.
She prepared it for me really well; prepared me some really good lasagna even! This is an old, downtown apartment in a building that shows its age, but it's really central. It was great for me because I just crossed the street to my event at Lake Merritt. If you demand modern luxury to feel safe or special don't stay here, but the chairs and bed were comfortable. There's a Whole Foods a block away; nice. I enjoyed it, met my host, and she was very thoughtful.
I have known Devaki for well over 5 years. She has been a guest in my house on several occasions. She’s kind, funny and spirited. She’s well-traveled and a great conversationalist. Devaki’s apartment is clean, cozy and centrally located between the Uptown, Lake Merritt, and Downtown areas of Oakland. It’s a close walk to many bars, restaurants, art galleries, music halls, Whole Foods, and the New Parkway Theater, a $6 cinema pub. Multiple bus lines travel near her place and the 19th St. BART station (subway) is extremely close by, where you can catch a 15 minute ride to San Francisco. I have spent a lot of time in Devaki’s home and would highly recommend it.
