It's been already couple of years ago since I started using airbnb, both as a host and also- on my recent trip to Nepal- as a guest. I believe this is hands down the best way to visit places around the world- to get in touch with real, local people and to take their real-life, real-time advice, something that no hotels or tourist guidebooks can fully give you. Something that also- by the uniqueness of each place makes you feel more like a guest, less like a -customer. Not to mention the human connection: my past hosts are now my friends.
About our space: I live at a different location now but my partner & I, both designers have designed, built and used it as our multidisciplinary studio for the past 20+ years. It's been a constant work-in-progress but we try our best to update the info & the photos regularly.
We have hosted plenty of our friends and guests here and they still keep coming back for more :-)
We are long-time Pittsburghers, we love this city with all its quirks and will be happy to share our knowledge with you.
