Private room in charming house located in quiet Squirrel Hill/Point Breeze. A quiet retreat when desired, but within minutes of Shadyside, Pitt/CMU campuses, and several parks. Newly renovated kitchen and bathroom.

The space

Private bedroom in a 3 bedroom, 1 bath house located in the Squirrel Hill/Point Breeze neighborhood. Bedroom includes twin bed, full closet, and wireless internet, with access to desk/work area in adjacent study.

Full access to recently renovated kitchen, featuring granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. Hardwood floors throughout with central air. Brand-new bathroom with heated floors. Washer/dryer in the basement. Free (and always available) on-street parking.

Guest access

You're free to come and go as you please. You will have access to entire home, excluding one bedroom. We'll be sharing the single bathroom, but I'm super quick, as my hair combs itself.

Interaction with guests

I'm really at home only to sleep, so you'll have plenty of peace. You're welcome to join me for a meal if I'm cooking though. Throughout your stay, I'm easily accessible by phone or email. I'll always let you know my schedule for the day if it helps you plan yours.

Free parking on premises
Wireless Internet

House Rules

Only three major requests:
(1) Don't break things
(2) Don't wake me up at 3 am (without good reason, of course)
(3) No smoking inside or outside

Other than that, I'm easy-going.

I had a comfortable stay at Ben's! He was a great host and his house was very clean and cosy! It was definitely one of the best airbnb experiences! I would like to stay at his place when I visit Pittsburgh again.

I stood with Ben for a month as I am visiting student in CMU, and it was really great stay. We didnt interact with Ben too much as he was most of the time in work even during weekends, but when he was around it was nice to talk to him and he made sure that you have everything you need. I really appreciated that I could use the desk in the office as I needed to work often and I also could cook. The kitchen is very well equipped and I found everything what I needed. I will recommend this stay for people who are looking for some easy going interaction and are looking for a quite place. I really enjoyed this stay.

I came to Pittsburgh for a friend's wedding, and Ben's house proved an ideal base camp for the duration of my stay. The house is located within fair walking distance of the university area, and there's literally a bus stop right across the street. Everything was clean, the bed was cozy, and the heated bathroom floor was a welcome bonus. Ben was very friendly and accommodating with my schedule. If I find myself back in Pittsburgh anytime in the near future, I'll definitely be checking his place for availability.

*Hospitable host. *Spotlessly clean. Ben was flexible and generous. Entirely accomodating with arrangements and during visit. House is respectfully quiet and well-located near universities with easy access to downtown and both shores, as described. Bonuses: heated bathroom floor, adjacent study, and bright, full modern kitchen. Free, safe, easy parking.

Ben was extremely accommodating when I had to shift the date of my stay and when I was delayed in arriving to his home. He welcomed me and took the time to get acquainted so I would feel at home in a new environment. I found his home to be comfortable and quiet and his hospitality to be very gracious. Perhaps most meaningful was the measure of trust that Ben afforded me--inviting me to help myself to things in the kitchen and to fully make myself at home. When a host makes me feel like a welcomed friend, I know that I am in a good place. Highly recommend Ben and his beautiful home for anyone visiting Pittsburgh.

This was a great place to stay in Pittsburgh and Ben was really kind! Even though my flights were delayed several times and I ended up coming in late we were able to communicate well and I felt safe and welcomed when I was there. Rooms are exactly as pictured, good location which is close to Chatham and public bus services to other areas around Pittsburgh. Really great place to stay!

As a grad student at Pitt, I spend a lot of time at work. When I'm not busy wasting away my youth, I enjoy reading and taking walks around the neighborhood. Chances are I won't be around too much, but when I am, I'm open to conversation; anything ranging from sports talk to …
