  • Great hostel. Awesome staff that really care about your stay. The location is close to everything; I walked everywhere in Boston. The only bad thing was the room was hot at night. Other than that, I'm very pleased with this hostel and what it provides

  • This hostel was not worth the money, especially if you are looking for a stay in the warmer months. Be aware that there is no air conditioning in the hostel, other than the main common room. The rooms itself don't even have a fan. We came in pretty late one night, and a bunch of guys were in the hallway saying they couldn't sleep since it was way too hot. Even with the window open, there was no air circulation, and the room smelled (I guess that's what happens with 6 hot people in one room).

  • Staffs are very nice. They are helpful and friendly. The location is also good. It is close to the station and cvs. However, not that clean, and some facilities are left broken. Shower room, Restroom, and kitchen has broken something. And the room was pretty hot.

  • Beds are ridiculous. It is hard to sleep in those beds. Tables in common area are very dirty and sticky. Breakfast is very poor and limited choice. Air condition does not work properly. But location of the hotel is great.

  • It was worth it for the price. Great location! Staff were welcoming and friendly! The guests were also respectable of the rules. The Wi-Fi access was not consistent and some of the outlets did not work. The rooms are a bit humid at night and we had to leave the windows open. The only complaint was the construction outside and at night, it is pretty noisy because of the bars downstairs.

  • The location and staff was excellent and central to Downtown Boston and the Metro lines. The condition of the actual hostel building left much to be desired. It was cramped, dirty, and old. The condition of the bunk beds, mattresses, and bedding were horrid, old, and dirty. The showers were no better and rather than shower, I choose to opt out and wet wipe myself down. The lockers were accommodating to travelers wishing to secure their items for the night.
