I stayed at Ruth's place during my apartment hunt. She was very accommodating and helpful about getting around the area.

Ruth is the best host I've ever had. She's caring, generous, and went out of her ways to make me feel welcome. I stayed for 2 months and had everything I need. Everyone in the house was friendly, even the dogs.

I'm a former Pittsburgh resident who was in town visiting relatives. My booking was a little last-minute, and Ruth got back to me right away, which was much appreciated. Listing is 100% accurate. Room and bed were both comfortable. I had some work to do Saturday morning, so having a little "home office" in the room was great, and the wi-fi was solid.

Can't recommend highly enough. Ruth is an amazing host, so friendly and welcoming. The dogs are so cute. The house is really nice. Thank you Ruth :)

Ruth is very friendly and welcoming! The apartment itself is a snug little top-floor space, and the house is in a great neighborhood just outside of Pittsburgh proper, with walking access to several decent restaurants and convenient to several bus stops. The top floor can get a little bit warm in summer, but an air conditioner and a fan combine to keep it very pleasant if you need them. Ruth's dogs are friendly and omnipresent—you _will_ encounter them on your way in and out, and you _will_ hear them sometimes while you're home. Again, they're very friendly, but if you don't like dogs, this may be a sticking point for you. Everything in the description is accurate. Overall I've had a great experience staying here and would strongly recommend it!
