Our hosts will do their best to make you feel at home. They know the local area well so they will do their best to provide you with useful information about the city and places to visit. Some hosts also allow students to prepare their own food in the kitchen, but this will depend on the host that you stay with. All our homestay hosts are fully-checked and trained and we inspect our homestays regularly.
