The beach is swimmable, you wouldn't expect that in the city but it does exist!

    Highly recommend this hostel. I stayed here during the Boston Marathon. Staff went out of their way to accommodate me and my special needs during my trip. I had an amazing time. Kitchen was terrific and had everything I needed to stay on my race day nutrition plan. Location was great right next to mbta line in residential neighborhood. I would stay here again without any hesitation.

    I very much enjoyed my stay. Finding this hostel was such a relief for my last minute trip to Boston. The staff was exceptionally kind and the location was very convenient to public transportation. I especially appreciated the security measures in place to keep guests safe.

    My stay was completely enjoyable. The staff was great, and the facility was good. Perhaps a little warning on when the door code changes, but beyond that my stay was great, will definitely stay again next week.

    Stayed for Boston Marathon and, as with everything in Boston, prices inflated for the weekend. Great location though, train station and supermarket very nearby. One microwave was broken and staff continually tried to fix it, but very short term. Some of bunks were very squaeky, even at the slightest movement. Overall very good.

    This facility was very good for my one night stay on a tight budget. Clean, neat, friendly, comfortable, and very convenient to the Boston Red Line subway (JFK U-Mass Stop). Quiet neighborhood too. Make sure to bring ear plugs when sleeping in a common room with 3 bunk beds; meaning 6 sleeping men. Good value for what I needed.

    Hostel was fairly basic – true to its name, it felt like the owners had bought a house and converted it into lodging. The room was clean but basic, staff were very friendly and helpful, and the layout felt a little claustrophobic but it wasn't too much of an issue. Overall, worth the stay.

    I was sleeping on a folding bed and my friend had a squeaking bed. This place is not well maintained, dilapidated. But staff was very nice. I won't go back.

    Dirty. Disgusting. Filthy. Gross. First time in my life that I felt cleaner before taking a shower than after taking one. Paint everywhere is peeling off, huge dust balls in the rooms, the window blinds are all broken, bathrooms are so dirty I’m pretty sure they’ve never once been cleaned. I stayed in a “deluxe” 4 bed dorm. Must be using a special dictionary cuz there was nothing deluxe about it. Only good thing is the location. Right near metro and close to downtown. Will NEVER stay here again!

    I stayed at this facility for two nights. The guys handling the reservations are very polite and friendly, but unfortunately the hostel is the filthiest place I've ever seen. Filthy and smelly sheets, nauseating smell throughout the facility, yellow and dirty bathroom. In addition, the room is freezing and the blankets provided are absolutely inadequate (I had to sleep with socks and coat under the blankets). I'm sorry but the sanitary conditions are really terrible.
