100% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

This is a co-ed renovated 3 bedroom basement House on Georgia Ave./Dennis Avenue. Its unbelievable because it is located close to the Forest glen Metro and is a few blocks from Safeway grocery store. This is a good location if you have no car. It's a 15 minutes walk from the house to the metro

I chose this listing because the reviews were positive, BUT BEWARE THEY ARE ALL OLD. I find it suspicious how most of them are positive and include so few details, so let me fill you in. I stayed here for 56 torturous days, and I'm honestly surprised that this listing is allowed …

Response from John:
This review is completely false. I would request that future guests compare this review to my other guests reviews and judge whether it seems out of place. He moved in and started looking for every excuse to cancel the reservation. He complained the room wasn't clean because he saw dust inside the recess lights. I had a cleaner clean the room twice in one week. Every week he kept looking for excuses to cancel the reservation. He told me he wants to cancel the reservation because he doesn't like living with Jonathan the other Airbnb guest. When he moved in, he got angry because Jonathan asked him are you an American and Yousif responded mind your fucking business. Jonathan is a special needs guest, a really nice guy, he just likes to ask questions. To make Yousif happy I increased the number of times the cleaner came to the apartment from twice month to 3 times a month. He was really messy and always failed to clean up after himself thus messing up the place for other guests. The other guests always complained about him as he never cleaned after himself. He would always leave dishes in the sink after eating thus disobeying clearly stated house rules. When told to clean up after himself, he would apologize and say he was tired. Yousif told me to cancel his reservation so that he can get a full refund, I refused, he got angry and told me, he would give me a bad review. He kept his word and wrote a negative review filled with falsehoods. I urge other hosts to be careful when renting to him to avoid the nasty experience I had with him.

John is a great host, and the room was just fine for what I needed. The kitchen and bathrooms are a bit on the small side, but I didn't have any issues. Great for students who are in the D.C. area for an internship!

Great spot for young professionals. Its not a vacation home...quite literally just a place to eat and sleep. But that simplicity is what makes this spot great for an extended stay. Overall, its the perfect place if you're coming out for work and need a reasonably priced place to …

The place is fine if you're on a budget and don't need a lot of space. There are 3 rooms, a shared kitchen and living room, and one and a half bathrooms you may have to share with the other guests if you have someone staying with you at the same time. The bathrooms are very small…

I interned for the NIH this summer and needed a place to stay. John's place was in decent travel distance from my internship location in Bethesda. John was kind and easily accessible through text messages or phone call. The room was comfortable enough for a 10 week stay. Transpor…
