Atrish was a great host. He was warm, friendly, and welcoming and very responsive whenever we contacted him.
His apartment is in a great area of Philadelphia. It’s in a pretty central location, and you can walk to most areas from his house within a reasonable amount of time. There are also several restaurants and stores nearby, some of which are opened 24 hours.
When comparing Atrish’s apartment to the posted pictures, they were pretty on point with what to expect. His apartment tends to be on the smaller side, but he ensured that there was still space available (eg. empty drawers, room in the closet, etc.) for our items.
As Atrish is a new host, there were some areas of improvement, which could be made to enhance the experience of his guests. For example, during my stay, his bed frame was broken such that the slats and mattress would collapse under pressure. He did notify me before accepting the reservation that he wouldn’t be able to fix the frame before our stay, but unfortunately, we weren’t aware what that would mean for the slats and mattress. When contacting him about the slats and mattress falling through during our stay though, he immediately responded and was very helpful and professional in addressing our concerns about the bed and informed us that he was planning to fix the bed soon. In addition, other items of improvement included a shower that unexpectedly required a longer time to drain and a small mix-up with the apartment keys when we first arrived.
Overall, we had a great stay at Atrish’s apartment, and I’m sure that as Atrish continues being a host and gaining more experience, there will be less of these minor hiccups.
