Absolutely fantastic place! Quiet, comfortable, and awesome themed decor. It was a great spot to crash on the way cross country, but I wish I had been staying to enjoy the space longer. Plus my dogs were able to join me, and they loved it too! The fenced in yard was a great help.

This place was awesome! Super clean and really comfy bed. The location made it easy to get to any place we wanted to go either driving or getting an Uber. The stranger things theme is perfect. Would defiantly stay there again.

My husband and I loved staying at the Upside Den. We loved the fun touches inspired by Stranger Things! We watched a few 80s movies on their TV and had a wonderful evening. Would definitely recommend staying here!

Super fun space! There are a thousand air bnbs in each city but this was certainly unique. You don’t have to be a Stranger Things fan to enjoy the room which is full of lovely retro touches. Bed was great, the space was easy to access and everyone looked as promised. Would stay…
