Host messaged day the stay was to begin that the unit I reserved was damaged and there was a comparable unit to stay in. Agreed to stay for first week since it was already paid and it would have been too difficult to change at last minute.
The place was not close in anyway to the listed unit. Location was much further away from city center and didn't have anything within walking distance. The unit is on the first floor and the hallway and entrance were dirty and littered with dead insects and leaves- not cleaned during the whole stay.
Since it is on the first floor with few windows, it is fairly dark and has bugs. Overall it felt like an overused student dorm. A disgusting bedroom carpet that I could only walk on with shoes. A couch that feels and smells like someone threw it out, and a tv that was easily over 10 years old.
I requested that the host refund the difference in the rate between this unit and what I booked. They didn't which makes me feel like this was a bait and switch.
