I must admit I did not spend any night in there, but that was not because of my fault.
I received a confirmation mail directly fro the owners, printed and showed at the reception girl and, when arrived at night in Lisbon after a 2.000 Km trip I received the notification my room was not available because I did not have any confirmation number. The only problem was THEY did not send me any.
Moreover the tried to say they told it to me by phone, but I never phoned them.
In addition they were not able to make me have any phone call (they say they don't have any telephone, even if the give you a phone number to call in case of late arrivals) and their public phone was broken.
I fortunately find the last available room in a cheap hotel, since many others were fully booked, but what should I have done late at night if I was not able to find one?
Maybe this will not happen to you, but if it will. In my opinion these peolple should not be chosen as your host.
