Wonderful hosts. I'm attending a conference at Temple over the weekend, and the place is conveniently located. There were some clutters but it was due to the basement being flooded days ago, and the hosts explained it's not what the place is normally like. They are very nice and warm-hearted, always happy to help, and even offered me rides to/back from the conference location. We've had greatly pleasant conversations too.

Great place to crash in a good location. Excellent value IMO. Would definitely consider staying again.

So loved my stay here. Ben is an awesome person with a beautiful intelligent mind! We had lots of great conversations and he is obviously in love with his city and very knowledgeable and helpful. This place might not be for everyone but it was absolutely the perfect spot for me. I was up early and typically out until dark so to be honest not much but sleeping and quick showers was the time spent in his home. His cat Oliver was an added treat. The location was central to everything that interested me. If you are an on the go, enjoy interacting with your host and a no fuss sort of traveler this situation will suit you well. I will certainly check for availability if ever back in Philadelphia!

As sweet as Oliver was, I don't think that our stay was as successful as it could have been. We were surprised by the upkeep of the entire place. It looked as if the bathroom had not been cleaned or even looked in on for quite some time, so we never used it. There was also a very strong odor that was present the entire time. The linens, hallways, & outside of the property could have been much cleaner & appealing to the eye. Overall, I believe that the space would greatly benefit from a professional cleaning job & less clutter. Thank you for your hospitality, though!

Ben was a very friendly host and did everything to make sure I felt at home. It's not the largest room, but it's plenty for one person like myself. The house did smell a bit like kitty litter, but after a few minutes I couldn't notice it at all (it helps that Ben's cat is very friendly and curious). Will definitely consider staying here again if I come back to Philadelphia!

I had a positive experience with Ben. He is a kind, accommodating host, and I strongly encourage spending some time speaking about world affairs with him. I was out of the house for the vast majority of my time in Philly, but my room in his place included everything that I wanted/needed -- a bed & an A/C unit. His house is conveniently situated right next to a stop on the Broad Street subway line, and about a $5 Uber to Center City. Bottom line is that this is a good place stay for a trip to Philly, especially considering the highly reasonable price.
