some("Cool, inexpensive city. I made some great friends but it is not the best way to meet people. The apartment was in good condition but the owner refused to buy us fans even though it was on the top floor apartment and over 40C. Reception is not 24 hours. I told them the time I would be arriving but no one was there, and I was left outside with my stuff late at night with no WiFi to call anyone. Apparently this happens a lot. It was an interesting experience had I am happy I did, but you have to have a good sense of humor to enjoy it here. ")

That was my first experience of this kind. Host was a nice and helpful men, but when comes to creative job he want a proffesional things, which is hard to do without VERY special equpiment. We had some little missunderstandings on this field, but overal - those weren't a big problems to solve. Hours and job was ok.

The experience in general was great. The job is not hard and not too many hours.

i feel that Daniele (owner) doesn’t respect volontiers, but Edina who is the person in charge of us is amazing and took good care of us.

Only problem that we had: they made us moved from our apartment to danieles apartment where his mom was... uncomfortable situation but Edina took care of us and offered us a room. But this situation should not happen and I would recommend to make sure it won’t happen for you. Other than this weird situation everything was amazing and would definitely recommend this place!
