My home is in South Kensington, Philadelphia in a 1918 brick row home. I live in the house and 3 cats live here too. The neighborhood is west of Fishtown, north of Northern Liberties, and in walking distance to coffee shops, restaurants and public transportation.
The only parking is on the street but it is free.
Best for low-key visitors, tourists, business folks, and Temple U. visitors.
Not suitable for partiers or folks coming and going after Midnight.

Rebecca's house was walking distance to Temple U., very convenient for those in town for conferences. Rebecca was a very conscientious host, and the top floor was a lovely space. Lots of art to look at in the house!

Was a excellent room, 15min walk from most restaurants and bars. Host was very welcoming, small issue with door alarm and electricity tripping but this was sorted out quickly. Thanks for letting us stay.

Didnt know what to expect from my first stay at an air bnb but so happy my first experience was at Rebecca's. Clear and helpful instructions make for a great stay and the room itself is excellent. Would highly recommend for other first time users or seasoned travelers.
