I'm from here, Pittsburgh. :) Grew up an hour south east on farm land.
I'm extremely personable and bubbly. I talk to complete strangers like I've known them for 20 years.

Cathy was a very good host and made me feel extremely comfortable and welcome at her home. She was very responsive in communicating! Her place is also conveniently located very close to the tram system in Pittsburgh. If you're in Pittsburgh be sure to consider her place.
A very simple, small space but worth the price for a one-night drop in. Would recommend an extra blanket as it gets a bit drafty on the air mattress! Hosts were great but really only hung out a few minutes as I was breezing through Pittsburgh.
Response from Cathy:
I completely forgot to get that other blanket out of the dryer..... I failed. Sorry! I hope that it was still pleasant otherwise! If you are ever in town again, I hope that you will consider staying here again.
I live with a roomate in a small 2 bedroom apartment in Pittsburgh. My roomate invited his out-of town cousin to stay in our apartment for a few days and it seemed easier for everyone involved if I just left our apartment while his guest was there. Kathy's ABNB was only 20-30 minutes away (depending on time of day) and was located in a neigborhood I'd passed by frequently. Under the circumstances I was looking for a clean, friendly, private and basic room and Kathy's place fit the bill perfectly. At the time, Kathy had two rooms available and I booked the less espensive of the two. When I arrived, since no one had booked the other room, she let me stay there. That was a nice little bonus.
I arrived at the ABNB in the evening after work on both days and joined Kathy in watching TV in her living room. She was friendly and chatty and we had a good time talking about our experiences in Pittsburgh and her two cats. Kathy was very responsive to my e-mails prior to checking in and arriving.
Ficar na casa de Cathy foi muito legal!Ela é uma pessoa muito simpática, sua casa é muito limpa e ordenada. Se eu passase de novo por Pittsburgh, (email hidden) casa dela!!!
Recomendo a todos!!!
Response from Cathy:
Cathy was a very nice host. I had a wonderful stay in Pittsburgh. She was very kind and even picked me up at the airport when I arrived and helped me with other stuff too like how to get to palces, some local information. Her place is quiet, clean. I was attending a Conference in Downtown and from Rutherford St. it was quite easy to get there with the T. I really recommend the place. Thanks Cathy.
I had a wonderful second go around in Pittsburgh; a big part of that was lucking out in staying here. Cathy was like an awesome college roomate; she had plenty of chatter and was very helpful in educating me about the city and it's people; plus she drove like half an hour taking me to the airport. The room was organized and clean and felt that way. I felt very comfortable sharing and using the common areas; didn't really feel like an awkard guest. There isn't much to do around the neighborhood but I like to think of it as nice and quiet - felt a lot more safer walking around here than the Southside neighborhood of Pittsburgh where a bunch of bars are. Plus everyone that I met from the neighborhood was very nice - sans one cranky old lady down a couple of blocks. House is like a five mintue walk (uphill though which i actually like) to train (T) station. Public transporation in Pittsburgh can be kind of crummy (long wait times) but my longest wait was only like 25 minutes at Station Sqare (near downtown) and that occurred only once. Had a great time; would definitely want to come back and just chill.
Cathy is a wonderful hostess and her home is very nice. Great stay!!!
So this review is more about the host than the space... My travel plans changed right before my trip, and I needed to cancel. Sadly, it was after the refund period had passed. C'est la vie, some of the risk associated with using this site. No big deal as it was only one night.
BUT.... I decided to call Cathy to let her know. We ended up chatting on the phone for quite a while, and she could not have been more pleasant! She seems totally cool and easy going. I look forward to my next trip to Pittsburgh, where I know I'll be staying here with Cathy as she seems like a great host.
Cathy is a fantastic person, very friendly and kind. She even picked me up from the megabus station at nearly midnight. Her place was lovely, with lots of light, very clean, and in a nice area close to the train. She has 2 super cute cats. I will definitely stay there next time I go to Pittsburgh.
