The listing was for a room not entire apartment so we assumed that the host would be there as well. Actually it was other tourists living in the other room, for us it was ok but could be a problem if you are there for different reasons (to visit and get up early versus partying until late) as sound carries. The instructions Vladi provided to get the key/into apartment were great though, definitely helpful. Building is old and smells odd and apartment smells odd too but not anything they could do about it, otherwise very clean and we'll thought out. Not walking distance to main attractions though, use metro or bike.
