Very noisy - considering that the apartment is shared and people do talk to each other there might be people who are louder than others, you might have opted not to be on budget and rent a whole apartment for yourself in that case. That issue could have been dealt by having you talking to the other guests to keep it down, communication is key in life! You didn't mention that we had agreed to pick your mother and sister up from the airport, then 10 hrs before pick up your mother decides it is safer to go with a cab then with us. If she had issues trusting the host who you will be living in his/her building, then maybe AIRBNB is not the right choice for you! Yes messages were not seen and only 30 minutes before pick up i saw them. if the person doesn't message back implies that messages were not read - i have a working life too and i am busy during the day but i try to check messages when i have some free time. Additionally, we gave both your mother and your sister so much information during the pick up which surely no taxi will do it!We also passed with the car in a town celebrating a feast to see the decorations which was highly appreciated by your mother (thanks for your appreciation - since you weren't there to appreciate our effort). We were not racist in asking if she was your mother, we are very sociable people and whatever you asked for we got it for you to make you have a pleasant stay! Thanks for your review!
