- Excellent location - basic but clean rooms - free coffee in the morning and a small free movie room (cinema-style) - very friendly staff - conclusion: good choice for budget travelers who want to be in Boston's city centre

I booked this hostel after having a hard time finding affordable rentals for Boston Marathon weekend. This ended up being a great option and within walking distance of so much. It was a prefect location.There is nothing super spectatular about the accommodations (basics and it's an old building), but the people working there are friendly and nice and everything worked...

The first surprise was that the rooms do not have their own bathrooms. Be prepared to wander the halls of this place in your towel, and see others doing the same. The shared shower on my floor did not work, so I ended up walking down to another floor to shower. Also, there is no food at all in the... More

Since my last stay in June 2014, 40 Berkeley has had its kitchen closed down. No breakfast now, but the price still appears to be the same (and obviously the evening meal option has gone). All of Boston accommodation is horrendously expensive by European standards, so if it is just for s night or two, then, yes, do stay here... More

I'd never stayed at 40Berkeley until this March and I was very pleased with the professionalism of the staff and the cleanliness of the rooms, bathrooms and facility in general. My room was spartan - but since all I wanted was a bed and a place to hang my clothes, this was perfect. I liked that the guest population was... More

my room mate and I did not make use of the movie room or free coffee simply because we were not in the hostel all that much, but we did take nights to study in the many spots available. although i have stayed at hostels in Asia that were much nicer this one was great for its location and price....

You get what you pay for! It was fine for a stop over it was clean but basic! Rooms are small and quite warm. The staff were all very friendly and helped us plan our trip and we felt our things were safe in our rooms.

I had a conference to attend in Boston, and the price of the conference hotel rooms was insane. I joked with my co-workers about staying in a hostel instead of at the hotel, but when I found 40B on the internet I decided to actually go for it. I've been to numerous hostels, both in the US and abroad -... More

I spent three nights at Berkeley 40, Boston, and well, I guess if I would have known what it was like, I would have spent some more money for a better place. I was sleeping in a single room with a shared bathroom. The room was clean, but the bed was awful. I'm not a heavy person, but I could... More
