    Great stay overall, John was very attentive, helpful and polite. The place is simple but perfect. Just a bit far from downtown Boston. If you have a car it’s not a big deal. They have a free parking. Love it

    Nice, comfortable place. We went in December and it was plenty warm. The location was a bit far from areas of interest though, but it was near a bus stop. Overall a great stay, would recommend

    It’s a budget place. Not for a romantic getaway. That said, the staff were incredibly polite, and I enjoyed my stay. I’m a middle aged professional traveling alone and it was perfect for my needs. It was a seamless experience.

    I liked it well enough! It was super convenient near the T. I thought I’d be staying in the main inn but ended up at another they own when I upgraded for a private bathroom ($20/night) which was fine. My main issue was cleanliness. There were holes in the bedding, dark stains in the fridge, and the pillow cases were stained (I ended up buying my own to cover them) and it generally looked like it could have used a deep cleaning and some airing out between stays.

    It’s in a college dorm neighborhood, so an apartment down the hall was pretty loud partying for St. Patty’s. The room wasn’t extremely clean — there was trash from another guest, some of the wood around the window was quite blackened, the sheets were somewhat questionable, etc. That said, I also got a private room and bathroom with a fridge, so that was nice. The neighborhood was great and I totally recommend kaju tofu house down the block!

    This place met my needs for the weekend (because all I needed was a place to sleep), but it was not the most welcoming hostel I have been to. While it's close to lots of restaurants, bars, and the metro to Boston, the private rooms (which were suites) seemed to have not been cleaned regularly and I had trouble reaching the staff when I had questions or needed directions to the inn. If you are looking for a traditional hostel experience, this is not the place for you.

    This place could be great but it is not. The housekeeper who checked me in also helped me with my bag. I saw her only that once. The entire place needs some deep cleaning, the carpet of the entire place have seen better days. This place needs to be renovated entirely. I didn’t take shower the two days that I was at this place because the tub looked very dirt. With a good renovation this place could be an excellent place to stay it has parking and the location is very good.
