    Limited Privacy

    We were greeted by the owner/manager who was friendly, helpful and informative. The biggest downside to the Kitty house was 1) residential parking on the street with no sense of security other than the neighborhood appeared to be quiet and 2) the bathroom, kitchen and living room are in common with two other rooms. Fortunately the other tenants were quiet and friendly, but, if you value your privacy, this is not for you.

    I liked everything. There was an innate feeling within me, that says "God is here", and yes He was. The Best I have seen in my travels.

    This is a nice, friendly place close to Fresh Pond and Mt Auburn Cemetery, about 35 minutes' walk from Harvard Square (or a short uber). The host was very gracious and the space was clean and comfortable.

    Be Aware

    The place was clean but the bed were completely uncomfortable and the rooms don’t have updated locks on them to protect your items so be aware.

    Nice owner

    The owner was so kind and helpful. I was expecting a TV in the room but there is only a TV in the share living room. The location is good: Nice neighborhood and close to a Start Market (Only 10 minute bus to Harvard Station).

    Great stay overnight - needed something close to Harvard. Was able to park, very quite. Only note - may be time to change that bath towel, it's not that white anymore. :) Comfy bed, good stay. Thank you!
