Brian's apartment is a great location and we were able to easily discover SoCo and Rainey Street. As a host, he made an effort to call and check in before our stay and upon arrival.
The problems: Apartment was very dirty.
A jacket accidentally dropped on the floor kicked up lots of filth and then was covered in dust. If you were to walk barefoot your feet were black in a short period. It seemed like it had been a very long time since the floors were washed or vacuumed. It was so bad we tried to find a paper towel or wipe - what we found were old dry wet wipes that ended up covered in clumps of dust bunnies with one swipe.
There was both a hamper full of dirty clothes and a pile of more clothes on the floor next to it.
The mattress smells like stale cigarette smoke has absorbed into it over time. In its current state, it just doesn't seem like the apartment is ready for guests.
The neighbors were very loud around 1 a.m. and we were only able to sleep after using earplugs.
Brian is a wonderful host. He even accommodated my after midnight arrival. The place was in a great location. Though it could've used a cleaning, it was overall a good value for the price.
Great experience and superb hospitality/communication showed by Brain. Apartment was cleaned up with clean sheets, clean towels, among other amenities. Location is fantastic, walking distance to downtown & 6th street (just across the Congress ave bridge) as well as all the good food places around S Congress. Highly recommended if looking for an apartment to stay at for an Austin weekend adventure (or whenever really).
Location was perfect! ... only used the car once all weekend as we were able to walk everywhere the rest of the time. Brian is always quick to respond to any questions we had, and was very flexible throughout the entire process.
The apartment is clean and cozy, very hot water for showers,and the area is remarkably quiet given it's great location. Also, there's a great coffee shop right around the corner!
Would stay here over a hotel anytime I'm in Austin again! This was our first Airbnb experience and Brian gave us a great introduction to it.
As an Airbnb host myself, Brian really set the bar for what a truly accommodating host can be. Brian was easy to reach, quick to respond, and always willing to offer a helping hand or anything extra that I would need for my stay. He provided plenty of clean linens, towels and even some takeout menus of local spots. A perfect failsafe for when I learned Jimmy John's wouldn't deliver to his spot.
The place was practically spotless and huge. Plenty of space for my friend and I, in a quiet complex just off Congress. Super close to downtown as well, it was a $6 cab ride from Congress and 6th St. It was a fantastic alternative to staying at a hotel and a much more affordable one for considering the location. I will definitely stay at Brian's place again if I need a place in Austin and I can't recommend it enough.
Brian was an awesome host. He communicated efficiently and effectively. He always responded to my messages in less than 24 hours. He even sent us a video detailing exactly how to access is apartment. He provided clean sheets and blankets, storage space for our clothes and parking for a rental car. The apartment itself was clean and spacious for my wife and I. Brian's apartment is a great space if you're visiting downtown Austin and you need a place to hang your hat while you explore the city.
Awesome host! Brian is a friendly southern person with a great sense of humor. Picked me up from the airport - just like that. The apartment is basically a walking distance from anything you want to see. The furnishing is simple but you got everything you need and I am sure the Brian will help out if you need somthing special. Make sure to ask Brian for his recommendations on where to go for fun.
