Dereck's communication was great, Lloyd was really a great guy, and the 9-9 thing wasn't that big of a deal. I'd do it again.
Another great stay....its a home away from home. Very convenient to Shadyside hospital, local universities, and downtown.
I always enjoy staying....friendly, extremely flexible, and very convenient. I could stay just about anywhere else, including well known hotel chains, but this is my #1 preference....Hands Down!
Another awesome stay in the Burrrrrrrgh!! I stayed during one of the coldest snaps so far this year, yet the accommodations were warm and cozy. Dereck was most wonderful as always!
If you just want a night layover in the middle of the city for cheap, this place is good.
So I was actually scheduled to stay with Dereck the week of Jan 6th, but due to the subzero weather rocking the Northeast, my flights into Pittsburgh got cancelled and I was put in a position to change my travel to Pittsburgh to be the following week (week of Jan 13th). Dereck didn't even flinch at the request to change my reservation to coincide with the change in travel plans and my stay was same as my prior experiences......AWESOME!
I was ultimately unable to make it to pittsburgh due to weather problems. However, Dereck was very responsive and helpful with preparations!
I spent 3 nights at Dereck's. Although the time is rather odd (9-9), I didn't mind it, as it coincided with my work schedule. The room was clean and comfortable. The neighborhood is very quiet and I slept well. If you are paranoid about your possessions, this place isn't for you, as the doors to the bedrooms and bathroom don't lock. I did feel very secure so it wasn't a problem for me. It is also convenient to the bus lines.
I needed an affordable and convenient place near the University of Pittsburgh and this worked out great. The host was gracious, and the neighborhood is excellent.
Dereck was a very nice and helpful host.
