UC Berkeley Faculty
Stayed here with four other exchange students for 4 months (Fall 2013). Basic amenities were working, but needed quite a bit of sweeping/mopping/cleaning before we could move in proper. Bernt was very friendly and responsive most of the time. A pleasant stay, but we hoped the washer and dryer could've been repaired before we left!
Bernt and neighborhood was really kind.
They helped me every day.
Bernt was nice and people staying here were also nice. I enjoyed conversations with the people. The place was ok, but not clean because he is too busy to clean up the house. So I would like to suggest to hire clean-up services once a week or two weeks. There were too many stuff and foods which might be no longer etable. Although all things can work, bedrooms and bathroom were not clean at all compare to normal. I guess house cleaning was not happened for a long time!! Guests were putting up with the uncleaness because of the cheapest price; but, if the house were more clean, people feel more comfortable and enjoy their stay more for sure:)
Fabulous host! Very accommodating! I couldn't ask for a a more affordable place with the amenities of a shower and kitchen! Great location, could walk everywhere! It was especially nice to have a safe place to park my car.
Bernt's room was not exactly as advertised. The greenhouse room itself is a nice enough structure, but has no door for privacy or security. The "compound" is not secure, and there are several tents in the backyard and easily a dozen people staying at the property. The house where the bathroom is located is decrepit, and the halls have cardboard boxes for flooring. I refused to stay in the greenhouse for security concerns and Bernt was accommodating, giving me a private room inside the house, which was also very poorly maintained but he did try his best to accommodate. Overall, the place has a very gypsy camp feel.
Good experience! Nice mam!
Bernt is a very nice host. He was really helpful and told us everything we needed to know about the city.
The greenhouse is great, the bed comfortable, everything was perfect.
Don't hesitate !
I booked a little late but Brent was pretty flexible. He sent me an email to let me know that I could use a different room in the house which was quite considerate.
Simple accommodation, good price, great value and Bernt is an accomplished and gregarious host.
Bernt is an excellent host , a good friend, always polite and helping us in need . I've been in your home for 79 days , and were all very good days .
Your home is simple and cozy . If you need a good bed and a good shower with a cheap price , this is the place .
