Decent App, poor monetization

It’s got a clean, simple, and easy to use interface, so navigating the app is effortless right off the bat. A wide selection of rooms and prices available with an activity level that is decent but nothing crazy. 4 responses in 2 weeks, and the one response to a listing I sent never got a reply. Activity isn’t something the app can control, though. The bigger issue is the way it gets you to pay. They might as well just have someone pay to get the app because you can’t do much without doing so. It seems pointless to let you send messages and not give you the ability to receive any. Can’t actually find a room if you can’t talk to anyone offering them, so the app can’t actually be used if your not paying for it. Wish they would do that a little better. Like other apps that give priority to paying listers, putting their listings first or advertising them quicker, making it stand out more and stuff like that. Instead of completely blocking free users from using the service at all, leaving it mostly just a glorified tease where you can see all the places for rent but not interact with them. Probably affects the activity levels of course. People make a listing then realize they can’t get messages and then leave.

App was great (when it worked)

This app was fine for me at first, I could actually log in and get messages from other people, communicate with them and also see that someone sent messages (for free), but not all of them. Things kept changing though; sometimes I could see messages, and sometimes not. The BIGGEST problem, however, is now I CAN’T EVEN SIGN IN! I used to use my e-Mail, as it was one of the options available. I never had to verify anything else (like my phone number) because I spoke with customer service, and they signed me in anyway. Now, the ONLY WAY TO SIGN IN is with PHONE NUMBER and I NEVER VERIFIED IT. Turns out, not only did they HAVE MY PHONE NUMBER, it is BLOCKED FROM THE WEBSITE. How did they even get it if I never gave it to them? When I spoke to customer service again, the guy over e-Mail said “delete your account and make a new one with that phone number”. Huh? That’s customer support? What about all my messages to and from other people? How do I know my phone number won’t get blocked again? There’s so much wrong with this, it is mind boggling. I can’t even write a review on their website, nor contact customer service because you have to have a signed-in-account (I could only reply to old e-mails customer service sent me because I can’t sign in). I’ll give it 2 stars, at least because when I could use it, everything was OK, but constant changes has turned this thing into utter crap

we switched to a much higher level of security and were doing a lot of work awhile you were using the application. Please contact us at and we will try our best to make things right by you.

Expensive few listings

App is extremely expensive and it forces you to subscribe so you have to be very careful and cancel subscription. There are few listings. Most messages are ignored. It’s too simple. You can’t filter results based on non negotiables. Most listings do not have a description or the description of the listing is too vague. There is a fair amount of fraud too. Tell tale bad English, mandatory credit and background checks. My advice would be the freeze your credit so no one can open an account under your name. Despite the pit falls the concept is great and necessary but like other people have mentioned, we’re risking homelessness. We’re I’d verified, and have spent a lot of money. $15 to get is verified, $30 to get messages and there aren’t enough inventory of homes and real people. There are too many fake profiles and commercial properties. The app had good intentions but ends up scamming people desperately needing a place to live. They also don’t allow any information about lease terms, cost or any form of numbers on the ad. This means it’s near impossible to know if a property is suitable. Very few people respond to messages. There aren’t enough filters to find a decent home.
