Hi Warren, thank you for your review and advice. It was a pleasure hosting you. Indeed, my listing states it is a shared house and that I do live on site. The reason my house is clean and welcoming, I would attribute to this reason. It is very budget friendly, as you stated. Comparable listings are well above my price as I'm sure you've seen. A night at a Motel 6 is no less than 70 dollars and a upscale hotel is more. A hostel by definition is where "guests can rent a bed, usually a bunk bed, in a dormitory and share a bathroom, lounge and sometimes a kitchen" so you're not quite right. I did inform you, as is on the listing page, that it is a shared house with a private room, tv, etc with a shared kitchen/bathroom. If you had requested or inquired as to how many people are on site I would have gladly informed you, but you did not. With that in mind, I wish the all the best.
