The host was aware that the home/room was cold but did not let me know nor offer any way to stay warm. He smoked in the house and opened all the windows which made it even colder so I purchased a heater for my room. I was never made aware of any extra charges as the host didn't tell me. I found out when I saw this review. I offered to help pay for the higher bill which he accepted but failed to change the review to reflect this. I did not leave the heater on constantly. Furthermore, it should be of no concern how much time I spent in the room as I rented it to use as I saw fit (I was looking for jobs and apartments using the internet connection). Unfortunately, I was not able to resolve the issues with the host as he was not communicative.
