You pay for what you get in this listing. It wasn't the most comfortable place to stay in. A lot of areas in the house are dirty, partly because there are other guests staying in the home as well. All the trash was overflowing, and the one in the bedroom wasn't even emptied when …

We really enjoyed staying at the Wanderlust hostel. Nestled in a quaint residential neighborhood, close to the mall and other community attractions. Check-in and check-out were really easy and convenient even for our odd time of the day arrival and departure. Lashawnda is friendl…

Great stay and didn't feel like a hostel at all. Enjoyed the decor (house has great character), the peace & quiet, and the occasional visit from Lashawnda's puppy. Warm blankets for the chilly nights and no AC are a plus for me. I'll be back later this month. A few finishing touc…

Definitely not beach. definitely not dollhouse. I've stayed in hotels before. yet this was more like a rooming house or frat house due to the doors being beat up and the bathroom feeling dirty. didn't even shower there

Response from Lashawnda:
Well, the house is one of the original farmhouses in Tacoma, all remodeled. Doors are sanded down and original from 1894. I am sorry you can’t appreciate the aesthetic as most people understand that in architecture, dollhouse is a style of home from the 1800’s. It is not a hotel, but a hostel. Meaning we cater to short term and long term stays. We do not have a frat style environment whatsoever. Everyone who comes to the home are working professionals. They follow the house rules and do not party or drink. If you are looking for a more cookie cutter hotel experience, I recommend you do not choose Airbnb or a listing that is titled hostel. In the future please do let the host or myself know that there are issues during your stay as we are more than happy to accommodate! Have a great one and thank you for choosing us!
