Most people at iSlow stay between 2 weeks and 1,5 months. Colivers are working professionals and families with a young and adventurous soul. iSlow is not a party place, but our colivers are very social and like to interact within the community and also with the locals. 

Of course, iSlow concept revolves around families.

Although, this doesn’t necessarily mean we will only focus on providing a specific service for families with small kids.

We try our best to support the needs of families and individual colivers staying with us at a particular moment in time, e.g. adjusting house rules temporarily to allow quiet areas during working hours, providing or facilitating dedicated services for families such as childcare or family activities by collaborating with local businesses.

For this to succeed, we appreciate feedback and involvement from the community and we encourage community members to contribute with ideas and improvements around the house facilities and behaviours.

We love pets, but we are still not sure about whether we are prepared to host them.

We’ve had a couple of very successful experiences with lovely dogs.
