I have been using Airbnb for more than 5 years. I have stayed in dozens of apartments in ten different countries. This was my worst experience by far. I would not recommend this Airbnb to anyone. Consistent unacceptable lack of communications from the host. I didn't hear from host for three weeks after I booked and sent initial email. The day before check-in I sent another email which was ignored. Morning of check-in I sent a text and called the host. Call was not answered and voice mail was not set up. Both attempts were ignored by the host. Concerned I contacted Airbnb to report the situation and began looking for alternative accommodations. Given that this was during Comicon pickings were slim. Three hours before check-in I was contacted by host for the first time. After checking in I spent the first five minutes of my stay cleaning diarrhea off the side and bottom of the toilet seat, and the top of the toilet bowl. Disgusting. After thoroughly washing my hands I discovered that the towel hanging up was dirty and wet consistent with someone recently using it after a shower. If a host rents an apartment there is a basic standard of cleanliness and professionalism expect by the paying guest. Neither of these were met. My skin was crawling the entire time I was there. My trip was materially worsened by the experience. Beyond beyond stressful and disgusting, this location was terrible. There are two people living in vans within 12 feet of the entrance and another dozen people living on the street within 150 feet of the unit. Proximity to the highway makes it perpetually noisy. Walking to and from was unpleasant. I would not recommend this experience to anyone.
Angelica is a great host. She met up with me when I arrived (a rarity these days with Airbnb hosts) and made sure everything was good for my stay. The place was perfectly located. Close enough to comic con but far enough to not be bothered. It's also very close to the freeway. Angelica is a sweetheart and I hope this was a good first Airbnb host experience!
