Gy was a great host. Extremely friendly an kind. She let us do our own thing with our own key's. The room is very large with a comfortable bed. Would love to stay again. Thanks again Gy

Gy is an awesome host who understands how subtle details make the trips of her guests much better, such as fruits on the table, bottled water in the fridge, and essential toiletries. She is very considerate, and gave us instructions for an late self-check in. During our stay the place is very quiet, spacious and comfortable. Lake Merritt is beautiful and Chinatown is only a few miles away. The neighborhood is safe and traffic isn't much. I would definitely recommend this place to others, and looking forward to coming to Oakland and book it again in the future.

I booked with Gy since I wanted to see Oakland and San Francisco. The location is perfect, it took us only 10 minutes to cross to SF in the morning. The farmers market and freeway is a few blocks away from Gy's place. You can literally walk to the Lake or Cafe's for brunch. The room is very spacious. There is a bed and a couch big enough for one person to crash on. I only ran into her once as I was leaving. Since the room is a Jack & Jill, you get easy access to the restroom. The apartment is upstairs but it is also the exit, which is convenient because I didn't want to disturb Gy. It's a safe community. My stay very pleasent and if I can ,I look forward to booking again.

I would definitely stay with Gy again. She was a great host, very clear in her communication and expectations and the room was a nice place to crash for the night.

We stayed in Gy's place for 3 nights while exploring the Bay area. The double room was spacious and very quiet. The shared bathroom wasn't an issue and is attached to the bedroom (like a Jack and Jill style) which worked really well and meant no walking down hallways to use toilet and shower etc. The area is safe and relaxing after a busy day in SF and we sat down by Lake Merrit one evening picnic and drinks. It was lovely. Only thing to note is there is no lock on the bedroom door which would be good. Gy was a perfect host. Thank You!
