  • The only reason to stay there is the central location and when - as was the case - everything else is booked. The room was so simple and sad it looked like a covent. Same for the bathrooms. Like a YMCA from the 60s that hasn't been renovated since. Towels were only available when you asked and must have been washed 100 times before. Also very noisy in the early morning.

  • Locatin was very good but it was too expensive for a hostel even though the clientele wasn't spectacular

  • Very small rooms with three beds. Breakfast was eliminated in 2015 versus 2012. Bad.

  • Neighborhood was awesome! Quiet and beautiful residential area, and could reach out the public library around 10mins. Staff are so accurate and helpful, since it's so big hostel, everything was well organized. Only two I was embarrassed were there was no A/C in private room.(but fortunately, it was not way hotter than I expected.) and no breakfast. If I go to Boston again, I wanna stay here again or recommend othere to stay here.

  • Had to stay overnight in Boston, because of flight schedule. Hotels were sold out or over $300 a nite, so we tried 40 Berkeley. This was our first hostel experience and other than no air and just a ceiling fan in hot weather, it went well. The room was clean, comfortable bed and soft sheets, and bathroom convenient and clean. Good location for what we wanted to do, and easy access to the subway. The front desk man, and I didn't get his name, was extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

  • The communal area and reception area were fine but there was no effort made to make the rooms welcoming at all. They were monk like in their austerity. From our room the bathroom/shower was some way away and serviced too many rooms for only 1 shower and 1 toilet.
