Interaction with Guests
If we are at home, we are going to welcome you in person; if not, after you make the reservation, you gonna receive a check in msg which includes so many details you might need.
It is not the center of the university city, and also I won't say this is a fancy top level neighborhood. My neighbors are friendly, most of them are long term house owners, newly moved in scholars and college students.
There is a Police station across the street and the area is patrolled by guards of University City.
Though I cannot say it's the center of university city, just look at how convenient it is!
Only 5 mins walking to the 40-market Street subway. 15 mins walking to 30-market amtrak train station. 5 mins walking to the University of Drexel, 10 mins walking to Upenn, 15 mins walking to HUP! 20 Mins walking to Art Museum! If you wanna go to center city, just 5mins walking plus 8 mins subway time!

Great place, great host! Lynn was so helpful although I was arriving so late, around 2 AM and booked the place only few hours ahead she sent me all I needed to know. I had a great stay! Also, the place was very clean. Glad I stayed there!
While Lyn and Syd were not around during our stay, they were very concerned about whether we were able to get there and made sure we could check in. The house was very homely and within good walking distance to Upenn, where we were attending my fiancée's commencement ceremony.
Lynn is very welcoming and attentive. She has always responds to my requests promptly. The house and the room are both tidy and spotlessly clean with lots of greenery. The neighborhood is peaceful and close to university city. Would recommend to anyone who wish to stay in west philly.
Lynn & Sid aremy first airbnb hosts and I am really happy. My flight was delayed by 9 hours and I ended up at their doorstep at one in the morning. They were kind enough to adjust with this unexpected change and left me detailed and clear instructions on how to reach the place and find my room.
The room was very well made. It did not have the plastic feel of a hotel room. Rather, I felt like I was at some acquaintance's place. The bed was very comfortable and clean. Their was a study table and a dresser with some M&M's to welcome me. The bathroom was very clean and supplemented with toiletries.
I checked out at 7 in the morning but they let me keep their backpack and pick it up in the evening.
Rating: Comfort: 5/5 Ease of access 5/5 Cleanliness 5/5.
I would recommend this place for anyone visiting Philly.
A nice location, nice place, and nice hosts who are accommodating with respect to odd check-in or check-out times. The room is stacked away on the third floor and there is privacy.
Lyn and Sid have a lovely home well located near University City. Only stayed 2 nights but it was very quiet and comfortable with great pillows.
Had small AC unit in room and even though it was unseasonably warm in Philly the ceiling fan was sufficient for cooling.
Left early and returned late both nights so only met Sid right before departure. However, we communicated regularly via text & email and any questions were answered promptly.

About the Host, L. & S.
As a host:
Welcome to stay!
There are some vacancy rooms with the convenient location. I think it's a good idea to offer them for the people who really need.
My families don't make much noise and we are not party animal. Hope you are the ones who really trustful, neat and won't disturb us either.
How can we tell you how much we love our home and how lovely it is! Hope you will like it too and enjoy your trip when you stay here!
As a traveler:
My husband and I are enthusiastic travelers. My family has changed several cities and countries during the last 10 years. Even after we got married,we still enjoy to explore new places. When we are travelling, BNB seems attractive and interesting----great location, ffordable, clean, more comfortable and the most important is just like at home.
Life to us is kind of mystic travels, sometimes you have no choice but accept the challenges.
Keeping the room clean and organized wherever we are! :D
