Excellent staff. Clean house. One of the best hostels I've stayed in.

The staff was very helpful and engaged with guests (activities, etc.), so definitely no complaints here. The location is a very hip neighborhood with a lot of great nightlife within 5 to 8 blocks away, close to shopping, Metro, etc. The downsides: the rooms (6-bed) were a bit small and didn't justify the price premium (double, I think) over 12-bed rooms. Def. go for 12-bed room if you can get it. Also, the nearest laundromat was far to walk (guest laundry machines in hostel were broken).

This was probably the cleanest hostel I've ever been in. The dormitory was also unusually spacious. The back decks and yard were a great feature. The basement rec room had a lot of potential, too, but almost no one hung out there. It was a convenient place for me to surf the Web or read in peace -- and at a cooler temperature than outside -- but I expect it gets a lot of use as a social area in the winter. The staff was older than usual for a hostel, so the atmosphere was accordingly sedate.

Daily pancake breakfasts, Sunday barbecues, and nightlife outings were great fun, besides the convenience factor. I especially liked the chocolate chip pancakes, which I believe was A.Z.'s specialty. Excellent staff all-around. The bathrooms could be crowded at times, but I guess that's normal for a hostel. The rooftop patio was an ideal social facilitator.

The location isn't the most convenient for visitors exploring central Boston. The shuttles to the T station are a nice gesture and fairly efficient when in service, but add an element of planning and time commitment to what should be a simple trip downtown. Otherwise, the staff is very friendly and responsive. The facilities are not lacking. Also, the several delicious Brazilian bakeries in the neighborhood (the urban "suburb" of Everett) help ease the pain of a less than ideal location.

A kitchen and a larger common room would have been nice. Very good staff.

A little hard to find; on major road, but it was set back up an incline and the sign was hard to see. Main problem was the toilet (shared between two or three private rooms) was clogged and unusable for more than a day. This made using the shower (same space) unpleasant. Otherwise, fine. Walking distance from walking street and Peace Street, but many buses as well..

A lot of tiny ants on the floor. Location was confusing (El Trapiche was a good landmark, but the hostel was not so obvious). Otherwise, staff and facilities were great. Via Argentina was my favorite street in Panama City. Air conditioning was appreciated. Very good value!
