Ashish is the worst guest we have had since we opened our doors to the public. He is intolerable, arrogant, scheming, disrespectful and sour.
When I didn't lower the price for my stay, he used the "Do you know who the hell I am?" line on me. I basically showed him the finger and asked him to mind his language if he wanted to stay with me. I regret allowing him to stay.
Then, he got an extra guest unannounced, for which he was not willing to pay cash at the property. He wanted to "transfer" the money electronically to me instead of paying while leaving. In other words, he wanted to get out and get away without paying.
He cut short his trip by one day because he managed to get free accommodation somewhere else. He tried to lie to me by telling me my services and amenities weren't up to scratch, which is a blatant lie because we have hosted many people in the past and I have never heard that gibberish before. He then expects me to give him a refund for that day. When I disagreed, he told me "karma" will come back to haunt me and that he considers the money not returned by money as money given to charity.
My advice to all hosts is please stay away from Ashish Shrivastava. We don't host people just for the money. We did it because we're passionate about it, and such people are more pain than pleasure to host.
