this place was just what we needed. my girlfriend and i were sick when we arrived and Billy and his family were caring and his peaceful home was just what we needed to get better. it's hard too believe that it is in the city Center as you can't hear any noise from the traffic. the breakfast was also fantastic...

We stayed for three days here and we had a warm welcome by Billy and his family! They rent several rooms in their big house in the middle of the Barok neighborhood. The rooms are good, clean and complete. I recommend this homestay for others.
