Property Description

The Farrington is a small guest house with air conditioned private rooms and dorm beds (in season) and free WIFI. Located right on the Green Train of the Boston Subway system, the Farrington is an economical choice in one of the most expensive cities in the world.
We have a nice selection of rooms some with kitchenettes. We cater to the budget minded, so please don't expect first-class accommodations, but we feel all of our units are an excellent value. We're in a great location to get around the city, two blocks from the subway, and less than a quarter mile from Exit 18 of interstate 90. If you're looking on a map, we're just west of Boston University, and six blocks north of John Kennedy's birthplace.

Boston is a city alive with historical attractions and points of interest. We have seven world-class art museums, the country's oldest naval warship, a huge aquarium, four major league sports teams, forty two colleges of higher learning, the oldest underground subway system in North America, the historic Freedom Trail, and the best seafood in the country.

    I was quite suprised by the low price considering our room was more akin to a one story apartment than it was a hotel room. The staff was very cordial as well.

    My bar is not really set very high but I’ve never been this cold in a hostel room at night and there was hair all over the bathroom. Everything else was fine.

    The building pictured is where the lobby is, but actual room is separate building adjacent to the property. Butts all around entryway. When we got to the third floor where our room was, we were overwhelmed by the smell of marijuana, and the staff member didn't even notice. Adjacent room to us kept lighting up. We opened windows to try to air out smell. Carpets not vacuumed in.. a month? Outdated food in fridge. When we went to bed we rolled into each other in the center like it was a hammock.

    I would honestly recommend against staying at the Farrington. It's only saving grace was that it was quite clean. However hospitality has no home at this place. It is a sad and decrepit hotel with no attention to detail. The handles on all the doors hang loose and were sticky. They provided one equally decrepit towel for two people. Lastly they charged $38 after the stay. I called them and they saw no unusual charge. I pressed them further and found that it was a fake charge for a no show.

    This is the WORST place we've ever stayed at! The room was disgusting. The carpet was filthy. You literally didn't want to step on the floor with bare feet. The room smelled bad (probably from carpet). The value of this place is NOT proportionate with the cost, at all! For the cost of this room (double bed) with shared bathroom you should at least be getting a clean room with private bathroom. We would NEVER go back. And we've already told others to avoid this place at all cost. So disappointed.

    This property from the outside looks great but looks can be deceiving . when you enter and given your accommodation you realise that you been deceived. Unfortunatel, the place it’s a dump that is falling apart . There is cracks in the walls and the carpet is a health risk . The beds urgently need attention as they are uncomfortable and sound that keep you awake at night. This property should be delisted from this website as is not fit for habitation. Plus side : The staff are v friendly.
