Yasar is a friendly guy, and despite a poor overall experience, I want to like him. He was quick to respond and not a bad guy to chat with. However, I became extremely sick during my stay (as did another guest) and had to go to an emergency clinic. (proof has been provided) After checking in with the doctor later, she highly recommended that I leave, so I did (see remarks in cleanliness section). I asked Yasar - in what I felt was a civil and respectful way - if he would refund the last 3 days, given the circumstances, mentioning that I would waive the issue with the washer and dryer (he listed access to them, then sold them upon my arrival and told me to use a washateria) if he would accommodate this request. Rather than showing an inkling of sympathy (which I sadly anticipated), he immediately called me "unethical" and took a very obstinate stance regarding further communication on the matter. Honestly, I still think he is an alright guy, but, unfortunately, I touched on a note of insecurity when bringing up the cleanliness of his home. Ultimately, I was only asking for ~$75, which isn't much. I'm far more disappointed by the way he handled this interaction than I am about the $75 down the drain. With this, he took another chip out of my faith in humanity.
Good things to expect:
Excellent location if you're looking for a spot near the university. Plenty of restaurants nearby, as well. Also, obviously, he offeres a great price, which leads to...
Bad things to expect:
Only one restroom, to be shared between up to three parties; also cockroaches in the restroom. Grimey window AC unit. Filthy carpet.
Weird things to expect: Every room has a large hole in the wall, so "privacy" between guests seems to be based on an unspoken honor system.
