This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The hostel was in a fairly convenient location. Although there was no air con in the room there was a ceiling fan and a desk fan which were fine. I can't say I enjoyed the breakfast but there was ample food. Although the bathroom was shared I rarely had to wait to use it as there were two near my room. The hostel itself was quiet at night. As I was sleeping with the windows open I was sometimes disturbed by traffic but this is to be expected in a city. There was a lovely courtyard garden with tables and chairs which was attractively planted and very pleasant. I would be happy to stay there again.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We stay there 2 nights in private room. Good location bit not close to any of the most important sightseeing spots. Anyway, is 20-30 min walking distance from Bus South Station ….but not very easy to reach following instruction of the hostel, especially because it´s in a part of the city (south end) with short, snake-like streets and crazy corners like: “Tremont and Tremont” one block away from..Tremont St. Advice: look carefully in google maps before start to walk. Room excellent, but no AC (in summer, this can be important). Bathroom perfect, very clean. Breakfast great, “classic-American” style. Service and staff very good.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The hostels was closed to the center of the city. There was a free breakfast every day. It was a buffet with lot os options (eggs, bacon, toast and compliments, fruits and waffles). The room was nice but really small. We stay four people in room which was same size as the rooms for one or two people. There was no kitchen so cooking lunch or diner was not possible.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Good location: 7 Eleven is right accross the steet, subway and train stations are within short walking distance. The room seemed a bit shabby, but linen and towels were clean and everything (electicity, lights, heating, desk) worked fine. Shared bathroom was also clean, and well-equipped, except for the shower sprinkle, which should have been repaired. Breakfast is "great" in all senses of the word: you can eat as much as you wish and there is a wide selection both in foods and drinks, offered on a self-service basis. Overall, the building and a staff was nice, and I would definitely return, should I have the chance.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I stayed there with two friends, and the best thing is that all rooms are private! So, you don't have to be warried about if your luggage is a mess ir not! Also, this is more safety because you are sure that no one will have acces tu your stuff and your things!
There are two big bathrooms per floor, one for men and other for women! Each bathroom has several WC and several showers, and they are quiet clean! It wasn't a problem not having a bathroom inside the room!!
Breakfast is great!! You can have whatever you want!!
It also has pool tables, free wi fi, a tv room, and a common space with lots of sofas where you can take your own food to have lunch or to dinner!
I firmly recommend it!!!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I stayed here for 5 nights with a friend while we were travelling around the states.
I really liked the location. Its in Boston's Back Bay which appeared to be a really nice area (really pretty too).
Close to everything you could need - bars, restaurants and about a $10 cab ride down to the wharf.
A lot of people have complained in the reviews about it being a home for the elderly. I did run into a few elderly people which i assume live there but i really dont feel its something to complain about. There were equal amounts of young people there. The staff were friendly. They host a few events and theres always information around the hotel about things to go out and do. They offer cheaper admission to tourist attractions in the area. Ive also read people complaining about the wifi which i dont understand. I stayed on the 7th floor and found the wifi great, so great that we were watching movies online when we went to bed.
I didnt really feel comfortable in the bathrooms, they arnt very private but i guess it just depends on what your standards are.
I would recommend this place to anyone! super cheap accommodation in a over priced city. If i was to go back to Boston i would definitely stay here again.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The hostel foyer is the most pleasant part of it. The rooms seemed clean but the hostel has an overriding smell of disinfectant which gives it an unpleasant institutional feel. There are some permanent residents and therefore a number of older people around. The rooms are pretty noisy and the blind in ours did not work ( no one was interested in mending it). Depending on the shift, the staff varied from totally disinterested to enthusiastic.
The hostel is, however, fairly central and cheap so for a couple of nights is okay.
