Just to note that in nearly a year of hosting at this wonderful apartment, this is the first even vaguely critical review. Unfortunately, Linda has unrealistic teutonic expectations and is not at all suited to AirBnB shared accommodation. Please rest assured that the apartment and rooms are maintained and cleaned regularly to a very high standard. Given that it involves sharing with other human beings, there are occasions when compromises must be made - but that is true of AirBnB establishments the world over. And the bathroom and kitchen are large, so there is plenty of room for cooking and storing. I hope that Linda can embrace the AirBnB and Russian experience in future. She should - as she mentioned many, many times - find a place on her own. We can also always do better, and will continue striving and improving and learning from criticism. In the meantime, I wish Linda only the best and advise that she worry less about shower gels, which incidentally are there for everyone to use, and show a little more understanding and empathy with her fellow man!
