There was no AC nor air ventilation in the room and so it was very hot and uncomfortable. There was only one elevator working and it was very slow. The building used to be a college dorm, and they have done very little, if anything, to give it character. Therefore, it feels like you're staying in a college dorm. The windows wouldn't shut properly. The blinds had to hang over the broken windows. There were only two male showers for more than a dozen males, and only one of the showers

It was a fair walk 2 most things. The room was basic w a singke bed, chest of drawers, closet, desk & chair & luggage rack & closet. Because it was close 2 the street, there was traffic noise. The showers were adequate. The toilets functioned, but the cubicles small. There were no kitchen facilities or place 2 sit & hear the news. There was a theatrette that no one seemed 2 use. Afternoon tea was popcorn. It could b classified as a 2-star motel. Most of the staff were friendly & able 2 answer ?s

This hostel has a great location. Everything else however....The bathrooms were awful and I had a blood stain on my pillow. Pictures to prove it. I would pay the extra fifty bucks and get a hotel room. I have been all over the world and I will never stay here again. Never step foot here again.

Expensive for size and quality, but Boston hotels are very expensive. The room was small. Okay for a short stay. Two small, clean twin beds. Clean shared bath. Floors in room seemed unclean. The radiator was on all night in May and could not be turned completely off resulting in too warm of a room. The window could be opened but there were noisy groups of people passing by and standing around outside. Very helpful staff. The hostel is within walking distance of Boston Common & other sites.
