  1. I was reading this article and fell on the floor laughing when I saw your rent was $450 and you had 2 rooms to rent out. I have no idea where this apartment was, but good lord I need to move there!

    1. Post

      Yeah, three bedroom apartment with two baths and loads of space, in a desirable neighborhood and centrally located to public transportation. No complaints! Medellin is pretty sweet. 🙂

  2. Great job with the write-up and well-done finding a way to cover your rent.

    I’ve only used Airbnb once and had a great all-around experience between the website and my host. I really wish people would start using Airbnb more, or at least be open to the idea and not frown upon it.

    Oh and my hats off to you for being a host to travelers. Not sure I can could do it, as I do like having my own space.

    I’ll certainly be booking a room at your place if you’re still in Colombia whenever I decide to make a trip down there.
