Response from Vivien:
Really sorry that you felt disturbed by us.
I'm disappointed that you didn't tell us that straight away. It wasn't late yet, so you could've come to the living room and say that you would like to sleep, although it wasn't really late (we left the flat around 11/12 pm). You also had Max's and my telephone number, so a text message or short call would've been possible, too.
I also have to add that it was Saturday night, Halloween night and everyone around us/ our neighbors had small parties in their flat, whose loudness we can't influence.
Furthermore you need to be reminded, that the description says "Private room", not "Whole apartment", so of course we live here and spend time in our living room and kitchen, also in the evening.
I understand that it wasn't nice for you to see our friend sleeping on the couch, but we didn't want her to get home alone that night, as it was really hard to find a cab and we thought it would be easier if we all went together. This was an unforeseen event, so we're sorry that we didn't let you know in advance, but again, this happened spontaneously and we would like to keep the freedom in our home to offer a friend a bed when they need us. I hope you can understand that, too.
We took the towels out of the bathroom after the Check-Out time 11 am, as we needed to wash the laundry and make the room ready for the next guests. You left the flat more than 3 hours after the usual check out time, without saying goodbye or speaking about the issue you just mentioned, which isn't really nice either.
Vivien and Max
