Awesome experience! Horst is professional, accommodating, and the space had everything as listed. Easy to find, too, even though it's a bit out of the way. Thank you!

The host was super kind and keeps his space very clean and ready for use. It was thoroughly cleaned and well kept and there was additional equipment which really helped. Would come again. The only downfall is the inconvenience of the stairs when you’re bringing in a lot of equipment. It’s not the easiest to work with.

Horst was an amazing host. Really responsive and helpful. The studio itself is an awesome space, especially the natural light and tall ceilings. Would definitely book it again for future projects!
