I had a nightmare guest last year. Spend hours on support.
Finally I written a review like this:
"I felt uncomfortable hosting John. I wouldn't recommend him as guest. From Zagreb, Croatia · October 2015"
To warn other host's and not to be rude. Now I was browsing a bit on last reviews and see he is about again. I think he thinks of making airbnb hosts sweat as hobby. So be warmed ;-P
From new review from Sevi in Greece:
"This booking went wrong in every possible way. I have hosted people in four different properties and across two continents and it has never been a situation as bad as this one. Partly things kept going wrong, partly John's expectations were not reflecting the rate of E16 per day he was paying for the flat. We ended up having to replace the tap and the shower during his stay. The electrics messed up (to this day I don't know how as everything was working before he moved in). We bought two heaters to accommodate him but that was also not good enough. More complaints on not enough bowls or towels in the flat. Never got this kind of feedback from anyone in the past. Also tons and tons of messages non stop. He also stood up the agent who was checking him in. So yeah not the best experience all around. A hotel would be more suitable for John"
"I'm a bike courier, every day has nonstop unexpected locations. I met Eva (Sevi's agent) near a tram stop, we exchanged a few informative words the keys and my fiance drove me to the Flat on Kafkasou in Kypseli. Let's label this N1. On arrival, there wasn't any hot water and the electric in the bedroom was nonexistent. The temperature in the flat was chilly. My fiance and I both play in the mountains so we're accustomed to cold temperatures. Except I'm not at high altitude, this was a flat I was supposed to rent long term. I opted to leave and stayed with a friend. 16 Euro burned, N1. The following day I addressed Sevi and Eva when I found that the shower head was missing. I think it is fairly normal to expect a shower, so I put another one on the pile. No electric, no shower head, no heat. To keep clarity among those involved, I shared my texts with both Sevi and Eva. Eva dropped off one heater to heat a space I'd say is similar to 80m2? It's good for one space, though it is winter here in Athens and the day time highs were 7-9, fairly chilly and the bedroom wasn't yet warm on N2. I wished that I slept because my Friday was full tilt busy. Friday night, N3, my fiance came over for her second time to share some tea company. It was nice in the flat. We slept well because of the second heater that was dropped off. The shower head was replaced and the two heaters made an inhospitable environment a little more livable for the long term (50 days!) I wanted. We've both lived on farms and in the country, these places too have running water that is hot and heaters. Kypseli is one of the older cities in Athens, I don't think that my requests were over the top. Saturday was nice in the flat, I felt a little more of a stable routine. Due to the race on Sunday, my fiance stayed N4. We woke up like anyone, put on hot water for tea / coffee and turned on the hot water heater for the shower. WHAM. No electric in the flat. Surely the bedroom never had electric, but now I am checking the panel and nothing is flipped off. I share the status of the flat with both Sevi and Eva. We agree that it's Greece, and nothing is going to occur today. I packed my bags and I left. In the last conversation with Eva, she mentioned that the typical renters for this flat stay 3-5 days and that it is a short term flat, that people are eating out all of the time and basic kitchen things aren't needed. These words came up because I was asking about basic kitchen necessities. The listing here was stated long term compatible. Clearly this wasn't the case. I don't devote any more energy or time to it, but at that moment, I felt a bit deceived. No heat on arrival, no hot water on arrival, no electric in the bedroom on arrival. I've stayed in 8 locations via Airbnb. Simply, I cannot nor can not recommend this flat in Kypseli to anyone until the electric is addressed.
