We are two journalists who enjoy meeting new people, young and old.
Neil and Linda are kind people, but maybe they are the kind of tourists that need a hotel or a tourist agency more than a home to stay. They are respectfull and quite, but the relationship with them was more as a transaction than an interchange. We felt that we didn't satisfied all their necessities, but they expected from us things like buying football tickets, and looking for flights and finding hosting in other spanish cities, and that's not the service we offer. In other hand, they didn't respect some of the written instructions for guests ("Feel free for using the kitchen whenever you need it, but we'll appreciate you buy your own food"), and they ate some of our food. Summarizing, they are good and quiet people, but not the kind of guests we enjoy to share with our appartment, because for us, this is a home where people is very welcome, but it's a home, not a hostel.
It was a pleasure to host Neil & Linda for a couple of nights. They were always quiet, clean and considerate. And interesting to talk to. Would love to have them some other time.
