Description

The Space

This room is perfect for long-term guests (a semester). The room is good for someone who is gone during the day to work/school (for long-term guests) or out to sightseeing (short-term guests) and wants a comfortable, quiet place to come home to at night.

The room is located on the 2nd floor of a house and just a few minutes away from public transportation (metro and buses) with easy access to the city and major universities, a 24-hour supermarket, and one street away from many affordable and good places to eat.

The room has everything you need, clean bed sheets and clean towel, always upon arrival. The room is always disinfected and cleaned completely prior to your arrival. You have a full size bed, a desk, a chair, a night table, a dresser, and full-size built-in closet. In the summer, I also provide you a fan. On this floor, there is a shared full bathroom, which is always clean.

Who else lives here: On the same floor, there is another airbnb guest (the room next to this one), and the hosts. I choose my guests very carefully, so whoever the other airbnb guest is at the time, he/she will be also quiet, clean, and mind his/her own business.
Small lovely chihuahua dog lives here - he is the master of the house, so you need to be a dog lover. :D

Guest Access

You will have access to the shared full bathroom on this floor, the half bathroom on the 1st floor, the kitchen to make light meals, and high-speed WIFI internet.

There will be another airbnb guest in the room nextdoor, and a airbnb guest in the basement level of the house (you probably won't meet this person too often as they only share the main entrance and the stove in the kitchen sometimes). Most guests stay long-term, and all are verified, so it's a safe house.

Interaction with Guests

I often travel for work, my brother - the other host, lives here and will be available to answer any questions you may have. Additionally, I will be on my phone at all times.

The Neighborhood

Allston is a neighborhood of younger population (ages 18 through 32). Most people who live here go to BU, Harvard, MIT, BC, or are young professionals, interns. There are also some young families living in this area. As a result, there are many things to do in Allston - you can find restaurants with cuisines from all over the world, bars, shops, convenient stores, pizza shops open until 2AM, and more. You can go to see a music concert, or go to the gym, because everything is nearby.

The room is located in a house on a quiet green street. The street is an off street from the main "Brighton Avenue", which features restaurants with all world cuisines, convenient stores, shops, and more.

Next to the house, there is a big green park - you can run, jog, walk, get some fresh air, or play sports as there is a tennis and basketball courts as well.

Getting Around

The house is 100meters away from bus 66 (takes you directly to Harvard in 15 minutes) and steps away from bus 57 (takes you directly to BU campus in 10 minutes). Metro station is only 5 minutes away.

The metro station is 5 minutes by walk, the station is called "Allston Street" on the B Line of Green Metro - you can get to downtown Boston in 25 minutes directly.

Other Things to Note

YES THERE IS WI-FI included.

The room is disinfected, cleaned completely, and comes with clean bedsheets and a clean towel upon check-in, always.

House Rules

1. No guests/no overnight guests. (However, if you stay long-term and have a girlfriend/boyfriend come visit for short-term, we can arrange).
2. Please do not abuse the utilities - turn off the lights, take quick showers.
3. Be clean :)
4. Bring some slippers. Even though this won't be often, and I will try to give you notice prior, but sometimes I won't know when exactly and so I reserve the right to enter your room at any time (when you are not home) in order to evaluate the premises & repair any things that might need it. If you are home, I will of course knock on your door first.

THANK YOU! :D
