You don't get much if you're not willing to spend much. In an expensive city as Boston, this hostel isis good value for money. The owner is really nice. Atmosphere including kitchen/bathroom facilities/cleanliness is much like in a student home. Very homely, not very clean or impressive. Would definitely stay again as it is much cheaper than alternatives. Transport there is OK. Less than 30 minutes with subway+bus and 2 minute walk


The bathroom was really dirty with dirty towels on the floor ! Dirty stuff too in the bath. The dorm was really cold, maybe give an extra blanket to the costumers.


The bathroom and kitchen could have been cleaner but I think it's dependent on the other guests staying there. Overall it wasn't bad for one night of sleep and a hot shower

The hostel wasn't in a great location; I mean it was accessible enough but just a bit of a hassle to get there. The building itself was nice enough but certain things, like toilet paper, were lacking. Locks on the door didn't really work (in that it was hard to lock them as you left it, though it was easy enough to lock them from the inside). Usually this sort of thing doesn't bother me that much but the price I had to pay for a night there was way too much for what I received.


It's ok but nothing special. Far away from downtown. Quite dity inside. Price is Boston average but you get less then at other hostels. Owner is a nice guy but exept him there is no staff. Bathroom and kitchen are verry dirty

Bathroom was very very dirty, we stayed 2 days and nobody came for cleaning. When we arrived in the room, the girls before us left papers, packages, plastic bags and even socks on the floor. At least the beds were clean.

The address on hostel world is misleading, it needs to state that the property is Roslindale not just Boston. The place needs to be cleaned more, it was very dirty! especially the bathroom, the only room that was clean was the bedroom.


No lockers for use. In a rather dodgy area, but a lot of security on front door and door to hostel. Good value for money, but if you want to into Boston you'll have to get a cab - a bus takes far too long- and then take the train a few stops, so money will be needed for that (it's around $10 to get to the train station from the hostel). Wifi is very good and the facilities and hostel itself were generally very clean, but it's very hot in the room and there were no lockers to store valuables.

Really nice hostel owner! Location is not the greatest, but this is one of my favorite places I've stayed


》 The staff was very welcoming & friendly and made time for great conversation which created a warm and inviting atmosphere. Staff friendliness was a plus in my desire to use the facility in the future. 》The location was fine but the hostel sign was hidden by tall grass. In conversation with other guests, there's slight difficulty in knowing the correct building. 》 With the summer heat, more fans were needes or a cooling unit. The cleanliness of the facility seemed to be relied upon by guests.
