I just wanted to share for the fun of it, but feel free to comment if necessary !
"Hey I'm James a guy from England who is currently cycling around the world. Just looking for some rest in a comfy place for a few nights before I continue my trip. I'm very poor as I'm now 10 months cycling but would rather a private place to rest than a crazy party hostal in miraflores. I'm a clean respectful person and would love to stay at your place. Please can you offer me a super cheap rate for a poor cycle man?! Thanks again and kind regards."
James, due to the floods in Lima, Miraflores is without tap-water. And supermarkets are out of any bottled water. Our apartment building doesn't have his own water storage. So there is no water for showers, cleaning, washing the dishes or even just flushing the toilet.
It's unclear how long this emergency is going to last. But after talking to Wil, we have decided to not accept any guests, until this problem resolves itself. I am very sorry for this.
On our price: It's already a base price that barely covers the costs of the room (rent, water, electricity, security, internet). Unfortunately if you want to stay or live in the safest district all these things come at a premium price. If you are looking for anything cheaper, I advice you to look further out. And because of the situation the country is in at the moment, it might be better to just stay put if you are in a good place right now.
All the best. And very sorry we can't accommodate you.
