40 Berkeley Hostel, Boston, USA
5.4
9th Jul 2013

Compared to the other hostels in Boston, the 40Berkeley is probably a good deal. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was OK. The advertised Starbucks coffee is not served at breakfast. Rooms were at least clean, but the furniture was rather old. The shared bathrooms are regularly cleaned (at least there was a cleaning woman there every day I was there), but at a busy hour. There are only two showers per floor for women, so at one point there was a line. Due to its size, there was no real hostel flair.

The common areas are fine, the staff is very nice (they also live there) and someone is always available, 24 hours. Unfortunately, two of the rooms (4 bed and 12 bed) are located in the basement without any natural light - not very cosy. The facilities like bathroom and kitchen are fine. But I don't understand who voted them for Hostel of the Year, I have seen better.
