Colin was a great host with awesome communication. We were very appreciative to have a comfy place to sleep that allowed our dog (medium/large). He also ensured we would have a safe place to store our bike during our stay. The room is off the kitchen with a thin curtain covering the glass paned door and the walls are thin enough so you can hear others in the adjacent rooms. Since we were just sleeping there, it was a non-issue. The room was bigger than I expected from the photo so that was a pleasant surprise. The house in general is dated, but it is clean and everyone staying there is respectable of each other.

Colin is very responsive as others have noted. Other guests have had better stays at his various rooms than I did at this one, which set me up for disappointment, not Colin's fault but sometimes stays are hit or miss. For this room in particular amenities are comfortable but there is potential for noise, as you are surrounded on 4 sides. I felt trapped. The room opens to the kitchen with a sliding glass pane door, noise and light (at night) flood into the room since it is not a solid door and the white curtain is not completely successful at blocking light. There is another door in the room connecting to a room where another person lives. The window in the room is across from the next door neighbors window and they have a baby, Additionally, the room is underneath the upstairs bathroom so you will hear every shower and toilet flush. I think there are more than 4 other people living in the house (4 rooms upstairs, 3 rooms on main floor, and people in basement) which can be a problem because the other longer term tenants in the house don’t care if you are comfortable or not. I didn't meet one person. Colin tries his best with house rules posted in various areas and alerting tenants if you are having an issue because of them but in the end he can’t completely control for this aspect. If potential noise and light at night is a problem for you, you will need to bring earplugs and a sleep mask to ensure your sleep comfort. Although I was disappointed with my stay, it was still a good value and I do recommend Colin as a host. 4 stars overall.

It was a really nice stay at Colins Place! It's in a nice spot of the City and he's a really nice guy, always trying to help :) Thanks again!

Colin is a really nice host and he goes above and beyond to help if he can. The room is in a share house and is basic and comfortable. It can get a bit of noise occasionally as it is next to the kitchen. Colin was very helpful in picking us up from the skytrain station and giving us a lift to the next suburb when we checked out. He generously provided some food and drinks for us, and communication was easy, informative and quick. Thanks very much Colin!

Colin was an amazing host & really went above & beyond for my partner & I! 10/10 would recommend him to anyone. Not only did he accept us the day before our trip, but he was kind enough to allow us to check in at a later time. Within five minutes of him showing us our room, he came back up with towels fresh out of the dryer, some snacks & drinks! We were offered an upgrade to a larger bed as well. I seriously can't rave about this host enough! The room was very comfortable as well, had a nice large tv if you're into that, beautiful furniture, some private in room storage, & even a personal heater & air cleaner. The only thing that sucked was the amount of scents in the room, especially the sheets. It's not a big deal to most, but I have an insanely sensitive nose so if you're the same, I'm sure if you ask, something can be done. Thank you for everything Colin!

My name is Colin. I grew up in eastern Canada but moved to Vancouver.

I enjoy travelling and talking to new people. I had stayed and used Airbnb in New Delhi, Seoul and a short period in China and Vietnam. So some of the things I learn are from staying at these places. If you stay at my room, you may see some of these countries artifacts in the glass shelves.

I also love animals so I welcome most people with a friendly pet.
