The beds were very uncomfortable, the mattresses too small and thin. The bedding was old and didn't feel clean. The toilets kept getting blocked and the showers were dirty. The whole place seemed very old and a bit run down, it really needs a lick of paint and some general refurbishment. I was woken up by staff doing 'room-checks' through the night which consisted of them opening the door and shining a torch around the room. The place was cold and drafty.

Location very good. Showers very good and hostel warm. But mattresses are so thin you can feel the bed underneath you, and they don't even fit the beds do you have a 6inch gap, there seem to be SO many staff members none of whom seem to be doing much. The breakfast is the worst hostel breakfast I have ever had. It is literally just very low quality/very dry cereal and bread. You get sunny D (which is a plus :) ) Can't drink alcohol in this hostel either! .

It's an older building in need of a better heating solution for the winter months. The beds were okay but nothing great compared to other hostels. The staff were quite accommodating in their attempts to make up for the facility's shortcomings.

직원분들은 친절합니다 그러나 생각외로 돈을 받으려는 부분이 많기때문에 정신 꼭 차리시구요 타월은 유료이고 사물함키도 살수있습니다 위치는 좋은 이유가 주위에 걸어서 첼시마켓이랑 유명한 음식점이 꽤있습니다

Nice hostel in an awesome location! Staff were a little bit disorganized but still nice and very helpful. Rooms were clean and well kept, and I liked the quirky building they were located in. Will definitely stay there again if I'm ever in Boston!

Very nice location, right next to the subway, 10minutes away from the Quincy Market. Clean beds and bathrooms, free breakfast, and helpful staff. I would come back without hesitation!

It's a good hostel, the staff is very nice and friendly, and helpful. The location is good, 5 min walk from the train station, very easy. Rooms are ok. I think it's just a bit expensive 30 dollars a night to sleep in a 10 Beddorm room. Otherwise don't think too much it's a good hostel.

미국일주중 최악의 숙소였어요..따뜻한물은 첫날빼고 나오지도않아서 한겨울에 찬물로 덜덜떨며 샤워 못하고 머리만감았어요. 파스타나잇? 요런거 5시 몇분에 있대서 일부러 시간맞춰서 여행일정 잡아놨는데 8시 넘어서 줘가지고 욕할뻔했어요..시간약속을 못지켜놓고도 사과 한마디 없더라구요. 대체적으로 온공간이 춥고요. 그리구 방 들어가는 비밀번호를 자기들 맘대로 바꾸고 알려주지도않아서 씻고 방에 들어가려는데 방문이 안열려서 엄청 당황했어요.. 진짜 미국일주중 최악의 숙소였어요!!

Too cramped / creaking floor with not enough space to move. WiFi didn't work very well either. Improvements can definitely be made. Staff member Tim was great

There was hair on my sheet and pillowcase, but other than that the room was great and the location was perfect!

This hostel had pretty average reviews when I took a look at it before booking, and I have NO idea why! It's great! The facilities are good and clean, the locker space is ample, there's a cosy little common room, the location is perfect (just a couple minutes' walk from the North End) - there are even WAFFLES as part of the FREE BREAKFAST! I stayed three nights from Friday through Monday and had none of the noise problems that anyone else mentioned either. Definitely recommended!

Not much to say about this basic hostel. The atmosphere let it down for me,

Fantastic location! It made sightseeing in Boston so much easier! The building itself is old and a bit rundown. Not particularly soundproof so you can hear everything from all the nearby bars and clubs (so don't aim for an early Saturday night). Facilities were fine and the hostel has a lot of cool events every week.

Nettes hostel, es gibt zwar keinen ofen, aber eine Mikrowelle und es gab sogar mal gratis Essen und muffins. Kaffee steht immer kostenlos zur Verfügung, von daher ist auch der Preis dann in Ordnung

The free breakfast is simple but good. I like the coffee bar.

The accomodation fee was reasonable, considering the facilities and services. It was a great that guests could leave their baggages free of charge even before the check-in. If you would like to use the lockers, it would be better to bring your own keys.
