Steven goes out of his way to make you feel at home and respectful of spaces. Always available to talk. He made some really nice bread that he gladly shared. I arrived when Steven was out of town, yet he sent several messages to check on how things were. Gladly recommend staying at Steven's place.

It is very good place to stay. Pretty close to subway, quiet, neighboorhood is friendly and welcoming. Great value too, we saved a lot comparing to the places on airbnb or hotels. Really, not anything to criticise here.

I was in Boston for work, and this was a great place to stay. 5 minute walk to the red-line. There was a desk in the room which was much appreciated, and the room was certainly more spacious than many I've stayed in. Also, Steven bakes bread and is glad to share it with you, and that fresh bread after a long day of travel, got my stay off to a wonderful start. I'm a pretty private person, in addition to being under a deadline, so I didn't socialize much, but I enjoyed the conversations that happened every now and again.

Steven was a great host. He gave us alot of tourist information for Boston. The best was the Duck Tours! His place was clean and I felt right at home. He was fully equipped with all the basic things you would need. I like his shelf of in the kitchen for Airbnb guests. He is extremely open to answering any of your questions about the city. Boston was fun!

Steven User Profile

Hungry to explore the world, meet people, make friends. I've been to 18 countries and lately going solo, which I've come to enjoy.

As a guest, I'm quiet, clean and respectful of any space I'm in. I don't smoke, I like to cook and I don't watch TV. What I do need are a space that is clean and reasonably quiet, close to public transportation and with reliable Wi-Fi.

I enjoy hosting more than I even imagined. I love meeting travelers from around the world, exchanging world views and hopefully enhancing their journey as other hosts have enhanced mine.
