All in all a good and clean hostel. The rooms provided enough space. The sanitaries were clean for hostel standarts. Unfortunately we had a room with a very loud, clattering air conditioning below which wasn't that good for sleeping.

This is a hostel so you basically you're getting what you pay for. Pros: Compared to other places, this is a good option if you're on a budget. The location was nice as it was within walking distance of the subway, parks, restaurants and a convenience store was across the road. They also have a pool table, movie room, laundry,... More

I never fail to be shocked by the cost of staying in Boston, but the Berkeley Hostel was a nice find. I needed a spot for one night on my way through town and that’s exactly what this provided. Expensive for a hostel, but when compared with other spots in Boston I guess it’s comparable. The room was simple and... More

walking distance to historic area and attractions. only reason that you want this place is budget. no air-condition and small room but it is expensive to stay in hotels in Boston. It is college dormitory style.

It is clean and well enough located, close to train/metro lines and if you know which direction there are a couple of quite restaurants near by. The staff though may not know about them... make sure you consult google / yelp to find out what is around. WiFi is free, which is a great plus. There is a water station... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in June. Although I did find it a little expensive for what it was (180 / night), this was one of the least expensive options we could find for staying in Downtown Boston. The rooms were standard, but clean. As many travellers have indicated, the building is dated, so many rooms... More

So yeah, this place may be close to what you want to see in Boston, but Christ you wont want to see the rooms! Yes it's a hostel and the bathrooms are shared, I get that, but for what you get in the room, no AC....REALLY?! It's just not worth the money. We are in Boston for 3 nights (just... More

Spent 3 nights here in July and was pretty much as expected - basic accommodation (with wardrobe, double bed, no A/C, shared restrooms), decent communal facilities (big lounge, TV room, free wi-fi, elevators, water fountains, etc). The hotel/hostel is situated within 1-2 kilometres of all the things you might want to do & see - shops, restaurants, local points of... More

Firstly, you must know that this is a hostel and by no means is a hotel suitable for families or older couples. Like many others we decided to take a chance based purely on the affordable price. I certainly have no bad feelings against this hostel as I believe they probably provide a very good service as a low income... More

We stayed here for 5 nights and really enjoyed it here, it it very close to the subway line and only about a 30 minute walk to Boston center. It was well worth the money, the staff were not overly friendly but very accommodating. The communal areas were extensive and kept well maintained and the rooms were clean. They were... More
