I stayed with Jon at NAH for 5 nights while attending a conference in Pittsburgh. I have to say I wasn't sure about the concept in the beginning, especially as I have never heared of anythink comparable before. Now, having stayed there I can say it was a great experience. The neoghbourhood is super friendly and the bus heading downtown stops 2 minutes away from the house, by foot. Overall, I have to say it was the best hostel experience I have ever had...having stayed in hostels around the world. In my opinion this is based on two aspects. First, Jon is a great host. Very friendly, great to talk to and lots of intersting stories to tell. Second, the small size provides for a very personal atmosphere. You feel like at home, just that you're not ;)
I can only recommend it to friendly and open minded people from around the world!
