An easy ten minute walk (legitimately!) from Pitt and Carnegie Mellon, this is the master bedroom in my apartment. The room is clean, spacious, and features a new double bed and plenty of closet space. On multiple bus routes to downtown, stadiums, and arenas. Near plenty of bars and restaurants.

The Space

Room is in a large high rise apartment in North Oakland. Outrageously close to both Pitt and CMU, within five minutes of the Cathedral of Learning. The current occupant is a minimalist meaning lots of space and little clutter for guests.

The bed is double-sized with a memory foam mattress. Plenty of closet and shelf room (including hangers) ensures that you'll have space to be comfortable.

For guests travelling on a budget, an additional two people could be accommodated in the bedroom as the room comes with a spare double mattress.

Guest Access

Guests have full access to kitchen and bathroom (both tidy), free wireless, and a collection of vintage Lego sets.

Kitchen, bathroom, and living room are shared with the host.

Laundry facilities are available inexpensively on site.

Interaction with Guests

Although the host may continue to sleep at the apartment during your stay, he's usually away at his office until late at night. The level of interaction is entirely up to the guests as the host is happy to connect with visitors but also respects people's privacy.

The Neighborhood

The neighbourhood offers good local food options - Thai, Indian, Pizza, Middle Eastern, New American all just around the corner.

Additionally, there are some great little ethnic grocery shops for those who prefer to cook their own food.

Some excellent dive bars and a few more upscale places for drinks are also within a three minute walk.

Getting around

The place is right on a number of direct bus lines connecting people to Pittsburgh's best and most interesting neighbourhoods - Lawrenceville, downtown, Squirrel Hill, and South Side.

Very short walk to Bloomfield and Shadyside.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Though I didn't meet him, Mat was very responsive, including getting the keys to me ahead of time. Loved the old-style building and very walkable to restaurants and Pitt. Having the place to my self was nice after long days at a conference with lots of meeting new people. The decor is simple but clean as promised. Fans helped keep the place cool in early summer when highs were in the low 80's - if you're used to AC or if the weather is likely to be in the 90's I imagine the 8th floor apartment could get hot and stuffy.

  • Mat was a very good host. My flight got delayed but Mat stayed up late to receive me at the apartment. The room is comfortable and clean. The apartment is accessible to some interest places in Pittsburgh. I would highly recommend Mat's apartment for anyone who is looking for quick accommodation at Pittsburgh

  • Mat's place was very convenient. the location is amazing, just walking distance from Carnegie Mellon and University of Pittsburgh. There are a lot of buses that stop very close to the apartment to go to downtown or Shadyside area. The apartment was alright, good to sleep and use the bathroom, but location is definitely it's strong point.

  • Simple, clean, and close to nearby Universities, perfect for my stay for attending a 3-day meeting.
    Easy, nearby parking for those arriving by car.
    Mat was out of town during my entire stay. I practically had the entire apartment to myself.

  • Clean apartment, convenient location, and Mat was very responsive to my questions. We ended up using the valet parking on N. Craig, which was exactly the same as Mat described. Had a really good time. Couldn't ask for more for this price point!

  • Mat is easy to talk to and very accommodating. I did not have any problems during my stay and his place is very accessible.

  • I was in town for a conference and Mat's place was perfectly situated. I was able to get downtown using the bus, but also catch a bus easily to other neighborhoods. My flight was delayed ~2.5 hours and Mat stayed up late to wait for me. His apartment is in a beautiful old building with awe-inspiring decor in the lobby. We also had great chats about academia, grad school life and professional endeavors.

  • My stay at Mat's place was amazing. I stayed for almost 3 weeks and this was my first airbnb and USA experience. Mat was very helpfull, kind and nice. He isn't at home very often, so I spend much time in my own private apartment. When I arrived he told me where the university was, how I should walk to the supermarket and some interesting places to visit in the weekend. The cathedral of learning was very close and buses to other parts of the city are all close by. Thanks to Mat my visit was a great experience!
