I enjoyed every aspect of my stay. The hospitality was top notch. My host is the most caring family ever. The meals were superb, and I can say that the value I received, outweighed the amount I paid.
Using homestay allowed me to feel like a local in Copenhagen and experience the city in a very special way for a week!
I really appreciated my experience at an home stay person. You pay the rent for a room but not only, because you have free access to the all house (garden, kitchen, living room, bathroom) and in my experience the person who hosted me was always available to talk with me and was always here to help in whatever she could.
I enjoyed most was her true dedicated heart. Before arrival, we knew that Linda-Jo, was a positive person and always suggesting help. Upon arrived we learnt that she was kind hearted, wanted to give support to the community.
It was really nice to stay in the homestay, not only because the house was very well equipped for travellers, including the kitchen, but also because we met two couples who were in the same house. They gave us lots of tips about the city which made our trip easier.
What I enjoyed most was the opportunity to be in an Irish home and have great conversations with the owners in English. Living an Irish life buying in the supermarket and cooking your dinner at home some days and staying in an Irish home gave us the opportunity to feel very much at home
The best part about staying at a homestay is that we have a local family who can guide us once we arrive to a foreign country. When I first arrived, I had a lot of admin to sort out and it was honestly so stressful
I loved connecting with the family I stayed with. They are such treasures. It has been beautiful having chats with my hosts and even playing some games and instruments with their kids.
Homestay is hardly any luxury nor offers hotel style privacy. However, after seeing downtown touristic streets, lines of souvenir shops, loud and much too easy hostels, rolling trolley suitcases on cobbled alleys you feels so happy to take bus no.16 to your temporary home where the locals live, to a calm and "normal" districts.
I don't have much homestay experience but the ones I have had since being in Canada have been great. They are so much better than hotels which I find really impersonal
