This is one of the most factual reviews, and constructive criticism that I have received in my short time with Airbnb. I least expected this from a group of young girls. In fact once they arrived, I prepared my mind that they will tear the unit apart, as one would expect from "the young and restless". To my greatest suprise these young people were respectful and left the unit in a pretty good condition.
Thanks again, guys.
As far as the concerns you raised, I do not advice anyone to book our space and go downtown by uber and I will edit my profile to include this. It takes me about 30 minutes to the heart of downtown just about everyday, for work, when there is no traffic. Peachpass is available for use in express lanes and its easy to sign up for. It is tough to find a deal like ours closer to downtown. The cost-effective thing to do is to rent a car and drive.
You are right- guests in the basement have to put up with noise from upstairs, no matter how hard we try to control it. We are a small quiet family of 4, and literally everyone in the household is a student and so we are quiet and studying all the time. But somehow it seems like every little sound upstairs is amplified in the basement. But rest assured we try to keep it to a minimum.
Again I thank you for a candid review.
