This self-contained loft/ art studio/ multi-use space has all you need to survive & thrive, whether you are staying for just a weekend or planning on spending a few or even more weeks here. We believe in mulch-functionality and the utilitarian character of the spaces we spend our live in. That said, you won't find fluffy beds and mass-produced 'art' covering the walls. But we will be happy to meet your creative needs- so please let us know them in advance!
The 14-ft-high walls have been intentionally mostly left blank for variety of uses, including, but not limited to:
Photo- and video-shoots. This space has been used for these in the past and we will be happy to accommodate your artistic needs
Free internet FIOS. You can also watch netflix movies or DVD-s on a 8 ft x 6 ft screen from your own computer. Projector included, computer not.
Guest- controllable heat and central air conditioning.
Please note: there is no separate bedroom, it's all an open-floor space with an open mezzanine. The main sleeping quarters are located on the mezzanine.There is a california king size memory foam mattress/bed (easily sleeps 2 large adults, but watch out for low ceiling-see the pix). There's also a 2-person futon. On the main (lower) floor there are (2) queen size sleeping sofa-beds (one of them w/additional 2' memory foam topper ). Although far from a stereotypical fluffy bedroom this place offers good sleeping accommodation for any folks 'on the go'.
Full bathroom with a shower. Hair-dryer included. Compact kitchen equipped w/electric stove, fridge, microwave, toaster, coffee & cappuccino makers & electric kettle. There are also: crock pot, rice cooker/steamer, electric grill & panini maker available for your cooking (website hidden) utensils & dishes provided, as well as towels, linens & blankets/ comforters (in winter).
Although the minimal stay is 2 nights in some cases we accept a single-night stay. The base price for a single night is $150.00 plus the regular fees (cleaning and, etc.). The maximum of 3 guests still applies, unless discussed with us directly on a case-by-case basis.
In certain situations we can raise the maximum amount of adult guests (18 yrs +) to 5- there is an additional fee of $15 per night, per each adult guest over 3 up to 5.
Please review all the sleeping & bathroom details in our listing with all folks in your party to make sure you that all will feel comfortable with such accommodations.
Comfort is a subjective term and while we try to provide our guests with the amount of space & privacy the way we perceive it, we understand that some people not only don't mind but actually feel good in more 'densely populated' scenarios.
Parking: free on-street parking next to our building in a quiet but very well exposed & safe alley.
We have kids and we understand and welcome families w/kids.
We also have dogs and we welcome folks w/dogs too, any size, any breed, or a mix of them. Dogs stay for free with their responsible owners. Maximum amount of pets per stay is 2.
Please note: if a dog is to be left alone for any (but no longer than a few hours) period of time it has to be locked in a crate. We have a large size dog crate available for your free use, or bring your own. In any case you are responsible for cleaning after your pet and of course for any damage that they might cause.
The minimum stay is 2 nights but in certain cases we may consider a single night option, please contact us directly to discuss it.
We would be happy to accommodate your particular needs and we'd like to get to know you a bit prior to your arrival to ensure a happy, creative relationship.

Loved all the decor in the rental. Eva was super nice and even had some snacks and such stocked in the kitchen. (My 9 yr old really liked that). It worked out where we could fit our Honda Civic in the connected garage. Bonus! $7 Uber ride to town in 10 degree weather. Worth every penny!
We had a really nice stay at Ben's loft. We walked to the Strip District and along the river trail to Stage AE and PNC Park. The loft was stocked with all we needed for munchies and breakfast. Ben is a kind and funny host. He has 2 other lifts in the same unit. We saw them all and they are all great places to stay. We hope to stay there next year on our annual visit to The Burgh.
From the outside,first thoughts were to turn and run.Inside, this unit was totally the opposite .Very unique,VERY well stocked ( A huge plus),and about a 20 minute walk along the river to PNC park.Attended a Pirate game Sat night and the Ribfest at Heinz Field on Sun.The riverwalk, further from the stadium isn't lighted which makes walking back to the unit a bit sketchy,however for about $9-12 (depends on time of day and how busy they are),we used Uber to ride back.First time using Uber and we were very impressed with how timely and cheap they were.Other than the one bed needing an upgrade and needing a few more pillows,this place was a gem and worked for our needs.
Great location. Great owners of the property. Gracious. Very good customer service. They made you feel at home. Funky, functional, a great place to stay. Would stay again.
Excellent stay in the Artsy Studio on the North Side of Pittsburgh. First off, the owner Eva, left us with fruits, snacks, juice, bagels and cereal so that we were not immediately rushing out for something ASAP. We arrived at 1230 am, so this was great! The place was exactly as per pictures and it suited our needs. We were only in town for a short stay 3 nights for the US Open. The location was fantastic. We walked to both the football stadium and baseball stadium and took a lot of pictures. This location was also close to many restaurants and pubs, and the newly renovated north shore. We got lucky and the shuttles to the US Open also left from the north shore, again walking distance.
The loft had everything we needed. We easily hooked our laptop to the projector and recapped the US Open days events from YouTube. TV was a bonus and the Wi-Fi worked great. I had also made pre arrangements to have a beer and the co-located German club. That was fun! People were great.
Again to Eva and Ben, thanks for being great hosts, although we never met. Anyone going to a Pirates game or Steelers game, this is a fantastic place to stay. We will be back. Thanks all. signed Dan and buddies from Canada!
The owner was very knowledge on the area and had great references and help to get to parts of the city. The apartment was funky, had the necessary cooking and equipment, blankets and sheets were a bit on the old side. But overall a good place to rent.
