Our stay with Steve was exactly what we needed for our quick trip to Boston. It is a shared house with other guests, but we were out most of the day and didn't have much interaction with them. Steve wasn't there when we arrived, but he left us clear instructions to gain access to the house and the room. We later met him and he was very kind and wanted to make sure we had a great stay. The room was warm and no A/C, but there were 2 fans in the room to help. We parked in the back and messaged Steve to confirm this was ok, and he got back to us really quickly (saying that it was fine!). About a 8 minute walk to the subway station. The neighborhood was a little shady, but we never felt unsafe. Just noticed the room we had was not one of the photos, but it was nice.
Sehr lockeres, studentisch geprägtes Quartier, in dem der Vermieter nicht wohnt. Aufnahme war sehr unkompliziert.
Our experience was quite interesting. The room was not exactly the room we expected, the photos seemed to be showing different rooms. It was very warm and welcoming, however cleanliness wise, it was not as clean as we expected it to be. The neighborhood was a bit sketchy at night as well.
Maison agréable et quartier calme, proche du métro. Salle de bain partagée avec d'autres voyageurs. Nous avons juste croisé Steve une fois, mais il a était très communicatifs par messages.
Steve was awesome--very welcoming, quick to respond, and accommodating. He responded to my messages immediately. My friend and I had originally only reserved a room for Saturday night, and we were planning to stay somewhere else Friday night. Our other place to stay fell through, so at the last minute I asked Steve if we could come a night early, and he said we were in luck and they had a room open. When we met him, he was very friendly, kind, and professional.
The room was clean and comfortable. There were other renters in the house and two bathrooms shared with those other renters. The bathroom had a basket full of extra toiletries if needed. They also let us put things in the refrigerator in the shared kitchen.
The neighborhood felt a bit shady, but that was not any fault of the host. I just had not done my research on areas of Boston. It was in Dorchester. Steve, the host gets a 6 star rating out of 5 in my book (out of 5 stars. He went above and beyond). I was not aware about Dorchester, so you might want to research cities before going to them. There was a McDonald's within walking distance if you like fast food. There were also other convenient stores. If you're a foodie, it's best to catch the subway into the city and eat in other parts of Boston. Also on the plus side, the room was located very close--within walking distance--to a subway station, so it was easy to get to other parts of Boston. So for location for convenience to a subway station, it's a 5. If you are used to all kinds of neighborhoods, you might be fine with the area. If so, and if you want an affordable place to stay, with a great, generous, and thoughtful host, with all the amenities you will need, this is the place. Thank you, Steve, for being so accommodating, flexible, and kind.
Steve wasn't here to welcome us, but he made everything for simplifying our arrival. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable for our 3 days. The house was clean, and we enjoyed our stay.
The house is well located, with the underground (red line) at 5min by walk we can reach the dowtown in 25min.
The house is about a 10 minute walk to the local metro station, so was very easy to get to the centre, Fenway Park etc. Steve was incredibly helpful and friendly and quick to respond to any questions or issue. The house is clean and well equipped with a kitchen that is available for use.
