I love Pittsburgh, and love to host/entertain guests. I will happily point you to good spots depending on what you are looking for. Its a great city to visit!
Priya was a communicative and friendly host (before, during and after the stay). I would firmly recommend staying at any apartment of hers.
My first stay with airbnb was a good one! Priya is a very pleasant person, very welcoming to her small, light-filled apartment, and knowledgeable about Pittsburgh.
Fantastic! Priya is a kind host and the cats are adorable. The loft is cozy and I slept very well. Convenient to transit and lots of walkable places to eat or drink. A real winner!
Had a great time staying here. Priya was very accommodating and the cats were incredibly friendly. You're staying right in Shadyside near all sorts of shopping, restaurants, coffee shops and bars, so there isn't much you can't walk to.
The only downside was the somewhat awkward ladder up to the loft. But the friendly host, great location and fresh fruit she left out made it a great deal for the price.
I really enjoyed my stay at this loft space. It was very comfortable, and Priya is a friendly, helpful and interesting host. The place is clean and in a beautiful neighborhood that is walkable to Craig Street (for restaurants and shops) and University of Pittsburgh. This place is highly recommended.
Like staying at the cool little apartment of the lovely cosmopolitan postgrad friend you wish you had in Pittsburgh! Priya went out of her way to be helpful and accomodating and the cats were adorable. The ladder to the loft space is steep but sturdy. The loft is just a sleep space (low ceiling) but it directly overlooks the open living/kitchen area where there is plenty of room, and which is separate from Priya's room. There is a Zipcar located just a few blocks away and there is a shopping area with a late-night drugstore, coffeehouses, restaurants and other shopping within walking distance. Thanks airbnb and Priya!
I would recommend Skylight Loft Shadyside for anyone interested in the Pittsburgh area. It is walking distance to many restaurants and an easy drive to the downtown attractions. The host, Priya, is very knowledgeable about the area and the loft is great.
I had a great time at this place and totally recommend it as:
1) The host is warm and helpful and knows a lot about the city and its attractions.
2) The place is very neat and cozy. The neighborhood is very nice and great for dinning out and very close to the public transportation.
3)The room in particular is located closed to the ceiling and was a different experience for me to sleep in.
4) The cat was very friendly and amusing.
5) last but not least, the price is very reasonable
It could not be better than this for sure and I wish if I could stay longer.
A great guest, very responsive and friendly! Took care of my cottage, and seemed to enjoy the vibe of the neighborhood overall. I would be happy to host again anytime!
Priya is the consummate hostess, thoughtful, detailed and a great listener. Her suggestions were so spot on, I keep going back for more, even long after my stay with her. The loft is open and airy, and the location is absolutely Primo!
I've known Priya for many years - we play sand volleyball weekly (when it's warm) and frequent happy hours around Pittsburgh. There's also the occasional random fun thing that she will suggest and we'll all go to check out. We've even traveled together in a group to beaches in Virginia and Puerto Rico. She's a lot of fun and full of energy. I would highly recommend her as a host, and her loft to anyone looking to rent a place in Pittsburgh. Her loft is in an excellent location and walking distance to many nice places to eat/drink. It's close to public transportation too. Priya is also in tune with lots of cool things that are going on around town, and would be an excellent resource for telling you where to go during your stay. Definitely consider Priya's place in Pittsburgh!
