Stuck at the bottom of socioeconomic ladder? Embrace your poverty. Rent a microscopic "bedroom" behind the laundry. Share a tiny bathroom with other household slaves. No shower. No TV. Meager breakfast scraps offered in exchange for grueling kitchen labor.

De ruimte

The front portion of this fine Victorian structure offers well-appointed elegance and refinements. But you're poor, so you won't experience any of that. You'll be in the back, with us, sharing the cramped, stifling, soulless drudgery of the working classes. It's clean, but there's exposed lathing in the ceiling, and the room hasn't been painted in decades. It's quiet and the bed is comfortable, but if you sleep past 9am, the spin & buzzing of the dryer on the other side of the thin wall will wake you. The bathroom was designed by Greyhound Bus Lines. No shower. There's no TV (the wi-fi is ok, though).

Toegang voor gasten

Your low status prohibits you from using the front door. You'll enter through the service entrance, climb the steep rear stairs, and cross the sweltering laundry room to access the tiny sleeping space. You will bow deeply and meekly should you encounter any full-paying guests or senior staff.

Interactie met gasten

When we're not busy, we may offer you the occasional condescending smile.

Even more bleak and dismal than the ad depicts, but the table scraps were quite satisfying after peeling 25 pounds of potatoes.

Joan tried to visit with us, but was delayed when she had trouble finding her way. She stayed comfortably in Riley's B&B, about 40 miles from here, which we highly recommend.

First, my luxe room blew away my expectations! But, my best memories are dining, taking tea, reading, and chatting with the hosts and guests in the parlor and other grand common rooms of the mansion. A remarkable place and exceptional hosts!

My stay at the Allegheny Street B&B could not have been better! The hosts' clear expectations helped everything to go smoothly. I enjoyed their proximity to downtown Hollidaysburg, a family grocery store, and to the Everett Railway (my destination). I was able to leave my rental car parked and walk everywhere I needed to go. The bed was SO comfortable. Breakfast was plentiful and nutritious - the best steel-cut oats cooked in milk with a little sugar and dried cranberries and walnuts (if you like). I highly recommend!

I was graciously upgraded from the barren room and stale bread and water to a lovely room with sheets and pillows, cool air blowing right from the window and over head, and warm water that comes right out of the wall!!! This was just what I think an airbnb should be. I felt comfortable and treated like a guest invited in to Richard's home. Each morning of my stay I had a very good breakfast. Richard doesn't over sell the atributes of his home, but it is a lovely Victorian in an historic town in central Pennsylvania.

Do not be deterred from staying in this room by the posting (which really is the most hilarious thing I've read in a while). It's completely facetious, and the room I stayed in was delightfully quaint and clean. I was served breakfast before I left, and it was delicious and filling. Richard and his wife are very gracious hosts, and their children were polite. I would definitely stay here again.
