Yigit and Efe are very friendly and reilable holder. We are lost in Istanbul and Efe waited us in the flat(we late a lot of time) and tried a navigate by the phone. When we arrived Efe is showed the flat and given so much information about Istanbul and it's public transports. The…
The flat is in a region that is suffering a process of transformation, a lot of the buildings are already empty or half destroyed. It's been very interesting to see how the neighbourhood is dealing with that, but at the same time, ypu can sense a tension in the air. There's a lot…
Response from Yigit:
Although I do not think the comments accurately reflect the situation and draws a worse image than it is, some of them are correct. The street is not cute, true, but not trashy. A lot of the houses are destroyed, true, but to make new and better houses and some are completed already. Also this does not create any tension, because it makes the landowners rich due to the convenience of the land to city's core destinations. However, it provides a very authentic real life picture for those who are interested in. Regarding the comments on the missing basic things. I think Matheus is absolutely right and I can not thank him enough for these critics. In my defense this is my first season and not having the right experience I am improving things based on critics. We have already solved this problem and placed the order for the missing items and more. I wish Matheus shared this with me when he was staying so that we can accommadate him better. But in any case, this is my mistake and I'm terribly sorry for this. However kindly note that Matheus was alone and the price is not determined according to one person stay. Therefore, the price should be determined taking into consideration a more crowded stay. All and all, thank you so much for your sincere comments and help us improve. Kind Regards, Yigit
NO WATER, TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE Leading up to the trip, Yigit was incredibly helpful and responsive. Upon arrival to the apartment, I was quite shocked with the area, very run down and impoverished. Most buildings around were destroyed and abandoned, basically not very comfortab…

Meet Raymond Joseph everyone. After blocking 4 days on my calendar for weeks, he refused to check in, due to a problem of the water pipes maintenance works which was not announced priorly and which was, by the time we checked the website, estimated to be over within 30 minutes. As most estimates are like, they did not finish it on time and Raymond sent me an sms saying they decided to move to somewhere else. He accused us of concealing this maintenance information purposefully and thus wasting his time. The water was back on 30 minutes after. (we had other guests at the building and they did not even notice the water cut) In any case we had organized ourselves for the early check-in upon his request and he did not lose any time. Had we denied him of early check-in we would not have any problems, because water would be back by the time they checked in. In any case I offered Raymond 88% refund keeping only 25$ as symbolic amount due to the negative impact of his decision but Raymond wanted me to refund him also the airbnb fees (more than I was paid for). On behalf of polite and considerate people, I am happy to have caused him stress because he should not think that he can say and do whatever he wants. If I have to make a full refund that would be for reasons within my control or the inconvenience should last for more than 30 minutes and in any case the guest should be polite.
Yigit's Cousin Efe hat uns eine ziemlich genaue Wegbeschreibung per email geschickt und uns sehr herzlich mit weiteren Tipps empfangen, der Kontakt war schnell und unkompliziert. Das Apartment war so, wie man es auf den Fotos sehen kann, sauber und ordentlich. Es gibt keine rich…

Sorry, I had not noticed it until you reminded me. You are going to be the first visitors. I hope you enjoy Istanbul.
