Myself and roommates who are PhD candidates at MIT will be your hosts. We are friendly and helpful. You will have access to the kitchen, a washer/dryer and your own bedroom with a Queen bed.

The space

You will be living with other PhD students from MIT. My room is upstairs, away from any common areas, so whatever your schedule is you will not have to worry about noise from others. The bedroom has a queen bed (less than 1 year old) as well as a dresser, bookcase and desk. If you have a laptop the TV can be used as a second monitor.

Guest access

The kitchen is well stocked with pots/pans and utensils (everything can go in the diswasher, not need to wash anything by hand) The TV has cable and an apple TV with netflix for use by anyone. There is also wifi, the ssid/password will be written on the blackboard. Laundry available in the bathroom, and a roommate can set you up with iron/ironing board if you need.

Interaction with guests

I may not be present, but some of my roommates will be from time to time. They are all friendly and will offer up advice on local recommendations if asked.

Other things to note

If the room is available on my schedule calendar, it is available for you to book! So if you want the room and the dates are open on the calendar, send me an official request if you want to stay.

The house is great and central, with bars and shops within walking distance. You can easily jump a bus or train to get where you are going. The check-in was easy and Ben made it so we felt at home. We appreciated how easy Ben made our stay in Boston!

I stayed at Ben's place during a work placement in MIT. Ben and his (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) are great guys, always around to answer any questions and give recommendations for the local area. The location is perfect, 10 min walk down to MIT and right by cambridge street which has lots of nice restaurants, bars and cafes. And the flat itself was lovely, clean, spacious and a great shower too (always important). I would definitely recommend this place.

Didn't meet Ben in person, but communication experience was great.His roommate Dan help me check in, Dan is also a super nice man. The room is clean, spacious and well maintained, it has a kind size bed and comfortable table for using laptop. Only drawback is the the air condition is bit loud. Feel happy when lived there :)

The room at Ben's was a perfect stay for me and my girlfriend during our trip to Boston. We had a spacious and sunlit room and shared kitchen and bathroom with three PhD students who were rarely seen and quiet but very friendly. The house is in a nice location in Cambridge, walking distance to many pubs and bars and a bike sharing station, not far from Harvard. Communication was timely and precise, Ben gave us all the details in time. I would definitely recommend the place.
