As described, good value. It's a foam mattress but pretty new. Not the greatest neighborhood in terms of feeling safe or walkable food options. The staircase to downstairs is very narrow at the top and does not have any railing at the bottom.

Great, clean room. Easy checkin process. Prompt communication. This is by far the best Airbnb experience I have had so far. Stayed here during my CS exam and would definitely recommend it if someone is looking for place to spend the night while in Philadelphia for the CS exam.
