  • Scott's place was exactly as listed, clean, and comfortable. It was luckily just down the street from where I needed to be--so that was a great bonus! I was quite nervous as I have never used airbnb before. However, Scott and his girlfriend were very sweet, fun, and easy to chat to. It immediately felt very safe and comfortable. I chose to sleep on the couch, rather than pull out the bed--but that was just my own preference. The couch was quite comfy, and I slept well. If Scott and his girlfriend were up and about after I turned in--I sure didn't hear anything! They were quiet, and respectful. I was pretty busy during my stay, so I really just saw Scott for a bit in the morning and then a bit each night before turning in. He also offered to include me on breakfast, and made sure I was well hydrated during my stay--thanks for the beer and morning OJ. Nice people, nice place. Thanks for hosting me, Scott! :)

  • Scott and his roommate were exceptionally friendly in having me at their place. Scott even offered to pick me up from the station when I arrived. I will definitely consider staying there again when I'm in Philly.

  • We had a great time stayign with Scott and co. He picked us up from the airport when we arrived for a small fee and had a list of great things to check out whilst in Philly. His flat is in a really nice area called Northern Liberties which has a nice vibe and plenty of places around to eat/drink. The sofa bed has just been upgraded with an extra mattress topper and is comfortable enough but is a bit sunken when two are in it. There can be up to four people around the flat, excluding airbnb guests, at a time so bear in mind there is little privacy and the living room (where the sofa bed is) is open plan with the kitchen. Overall a great experience, Scott is a very friendly and welcoming host and I would recommend staying here!

  • Scott is very nice and kind. His room is very comfortable and is located in safe area.
    It is close to bus stops and subway stations so you can easily reach the down town. He already prepared a lot of things like maps, brief information for travel. I enjoyed my journey cuz of his consideration. Thank you Scott. If you guys want to travel in Philadelphia and find room in here, I strongly recommend to book Scott's room!

  • Both Scott and his roommate were very friendly. Scott was very helpful with directions to his place. and gave some great recommendations for bars and restaurant. Great first experience with Airbnb, can't wait to further our adventure.

  • Scott is a really funny and wonderful host! He shared so much about the city that I couldn't possibly finish exploring. He was also really kind to meet me and guide me to his place. All in all, I had a great time at Scott's and would recommend anyone who wants to know what's awesome in Philly to stay!

  • It was a pleasure staying at Scott's place. He's a great guy, very welcoming and lives in a cool neighborhood! His roommate was really nice too, and offered to watch the NBA game with me!
    I also got to meet Scott's lovely girlfriend Kristen, she is a great girl and is very funny!

    All in all, I couldn't have had a better experience!

  • Scott's an awesome dude, with a killer place to match. Extremely comfortable space with friendly and accommodating roommates, and anything a traveler may need - including great storytelling. The location is remarkable in North Philly / neo-Brooklyn. Highly recommended.

    June 2014
  • Scott was helpful, accommodating and hospitable - really easy check-in and met us at the station. He had to leave on our second night, but allowed us to stay in his room as his roommate held a party. Sweet area with great bars, restaurants and a ten minute walk to the train to get downtown. Lack of privacy and the sofa bed has probably seen better days..alright for a short stay. The dudes are legends!

About
I'm an open-minded, and spontaneous individual who enjoys beatboxing, surfing, building websites, and shootin the breeze!! I am a recent college grad, so I am poor but I enjoy hosting people more for the experience than the money. Every week me and my roomate make it a point to (email hidden) in town, theres just too many options so why not explore them all? When I travel, I like to get to know the people and the non-touristy spots. Basically anything that doesnt involve a museum, I'm happy. I work at a chemical company in the IT department and hope to eventually work for Airbnb as a data scientist. who knows!
