The Basics: Location is great, nice neighborhood with stores, restaurants and number of interesting places close by for groceries or dinner. The staff, mainly the manager, is very helpful and willing to help. The actual residents in the house seemed very friendly, at some points interacting with some of the guests, which is very important .They are all very friendly when sharing common areas, etc. And the rooms are quite large with plenty of closet space if needed. WiFi worked great.
The place is quite full of character, if you are an active kind of traveller, the place is great, however, if you are more on the lazy side, there are no TVs on the room or breakfast, which means you will need to adapt to that against a regular BnB or Hotel. I found it ideal for the kind of trip I enjoy best.
Highly recommendable for people looking for a quiet place, both residents as well as guests were very respectful of each other while I was there, and quiet times were thoroughly respected.
