Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I'm a regular at Ti's place. As always, top notch service and a very enjoyable stay.

  • I've spent one month and half at Tivan's. The house is basic but there's almost everything you need! It is closed to Kendal Square, Tatte Bakery on the other side of the street is delicious, Whole food is ten minutes walk! So, this is a good solution for who are searching for a temporary arrangement and Tivan is always trying to do his best!

  • We had a short stay in one of the rooms for our Family Weekend at MIT. The location was perfect for our purposes, right on the edge of the MIT campus. We spent most of our time away, only coming back for sleep. The accommodation was quiet, simple, clean, convenient, and economical. Tivan is a kind host. The communications were quick and easy when we had questions. We were happy to meet him in person and chat about things. He goes around town by bicycle and talked excitedly about a start-up bicycle accessory business he's involved in, which was well-received since I am a bike commuter myself. So if you need simple, no-frills accommodation near MIT/Harvard, this is a good choice. We will definitely consider Tivan's place for future visits.

  • Convenient location, nearby metro station and restaurants. Quiet place and safe neighborhood. Good deal.

    September 2013
  • The place was clean, pleasant, and well-located. I would recommend it.

    September 2013
  • We didn't had the chance to meet Tivan, but we met his room mate Will, who was a very good host!
    The room was clean, big and the location was very good. 10 min walk to the metro station and then less that 10 min to be in the city.
    My girlfriend and I, clearly recommend this place!

  • We arrived at around 10pm and was told by the taxi driver that we should not stay out after dark because the area has a reputation. It did not help us after we had problem finding the key box. We were scared.Luckily, a lady staying in the same flat came home and showed us. The host does not stay in the flat.
    The room was dirty and we quickly settled in after finding the bedsheets and towels. The price is too high for Boston but we booked too late i guess.
    We wont come back to this flat due to location and condition of the flat.

    Response from Ti:

    Sorry that you had an unfortunate series of events during your stay! I try to keep a clean house and to make sure that if I'm not around that accessing keys is easy. In response to the comment about the area being unsafe, I have never once seen or heard of a single crime being committed in our area, and I have lived here for 2 years now. All of our neighbors are young working professionals or students - these days cab drivers in Boston know increasingly less about the city because they rely on their gps to guide them instead of common sense. I consistently have to direct cabbies instead of them inherently knowing the area - a sign that they don't really have sufficient knowledge to be commenting about the safety of a given area.

  • Great stay with Tivan and his flatmate. Beautiful area of Boston, easily accessible. Thanks!

    August 2013
  • Perfect location. Very easy in and out check in. Great for what I needed.

    August 2013
  • Expect what you pay for. This was a bare bones kind of place, but it got the job done. There's no lock on the bathroom! Tivan and Will were both very helpful and accommodating. Great location.
