“Kevin and David were such kind and inviting hosts. They've really created a safe, comfortable, and homey place where everyone feels like they're just hanging at a friend's house. They made sure I felt accommodated and had everything I needed. It's centrally located so there's lots of food places nearby. I'd highly recommend this place to everyone, even families!”

“I had a great time staying at this place. It's a very chill quiet place and the people I met staying here are cool too. This place is definitely good for people who are working and needing a temporary spot or people who are in town for business. Grocery stores and restaurants are within a 5 minute walk and if you don't have a vehicle, this place is next to some bus stops so it's easy to get around. I would come back here again.”
