Myself and roommates who are PhD candidates at MIT will be your hosts. We are friendly and helpful. You will have access to the kitchen, a washer/dryer and your own bedroom with a Queen bed.

The space

You will be living with other PhD students from MIT. My room is upstairs, away from any common areas, so whatever your schedule is you will not have to worry about noise from others. The bedroom has a queen bed (less than 1 year old) as well as a dresser, bookcase and desk. If you have a laptop the TV can be used as a second monitor.

Guest access

The kitchen is well stocked with pots/pans and utensils (everything can go in the diswasher, not need to wash anything by hand) The TV has cable and an apple TV with netflix for use by anyone. There is also wifi, the ssid/password will be written on the blackboard. Laundry available in the bathroom, and a roommate can set you up with iron/ironing board if you need.

Interaction with guests

I may not be present, but some of my roommates will be from time to time. They are all friendly and will offer up advice on local recommendations if asked.

Other things to note

If the room is available on my schedule calendar, it is available for you to book! So if you want the room and the dates are open on the calendar, send me an official request if you want to stay.

I stayed at Ben's place during a work placement in MIT. Ben and his (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) are great guys, always around to answer any questions and give recommendations for the local area. The location is perfect, 10 min walk down to MIT and right by cambridge street which has lots of nice restaurants, bars and cafes. And the flat itself was lovely, clean, spacious and a great shower too (always important). I would definitely recommend this place.

Ben sent all the relevant info in good time, so I had no problem finding the place or getting in. On arrival I was greeted by one of the housemates, Dan, who was helpful in answering my questions before he went out for the evening. The whole place is very clean, and the room is nice and bright and without clutter. This place might not suit light sleepers due to both the noise from the bar and the fact that the blinds don't do a very good job of keeping the room dark. Neither of these things bother me though, so it was a great stay.

We had a great time at Ben's place. He and his housemates were very friendly and open. The neighbourhood was great, with some bars and restaurants but not extremely busy. The room was spacious and nice, although it was at times rather hot. I would definitely come back.

The house is great and central, with bars and shops within walking distance. You can easily jump a bus or train to get where you are going. The check-in was easy and Ben made it so we felt at home. We appreciated how easy Ben made our stay in Boston!
