Fabulous 8.8 From 59 reviews

Very good 8.0
Kitty's House not really near Harvard Square
I object strongly to the description of "Near Harvard Sq." If I had realized it was nearly 2 miles away, I would not have signed up! And I was not able to open the sink drain; needed pliers or super strong fingers~ I also would like to see a single price, rather than the "plus $15 cleaning fee." I see that it is standard , but I consider it misleading lowballing! And I was not told about the TV set available.

Good 6.0
Low ceilings & lack of security
The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. The location is not super convenient for walking/transit, but not too far from everything by car. The room can't be locked when you leave it, and can only be locked from the inside as the host did not provide a key - this means if somebody else is staying there, you have to trust that person to not enter your room or take things from your room. The room is in the basement with very low ceilings, so be careful if you are tall. Everything was relatively clean, but again, since the bathroom and kitchen are shared with other guests, cleanliness depended on the other guests as well.
