I reserved for 6 nights because I was on a budget. After the first night I cancelled everything and moved elsewhere. I prefer to pay double what I payed here. The rooms are the same as a prison cell and the place seems like the perfect sceanery for a horror movie, there are old ladys literally roaming the halls.... good... More

They are not serving breakfast anymore. A big bummer for me as I was hoping to save some expenses on breakfast. My room can be too warm from the heater and I need to open the windows during the day and night to keep the room cool. I am from Singapore so I am not a big fan of too... More

This hostel hotel seems really good for its value. Well refurbished. Warm. Spotless. Lots of self service facilities and communal spaces. Friendly and very helpful staff. About a third of the cost of any formal hotels near by. I really cannot understand the so negative reviews unless it was a reflection about how expensive Boston is. Deserves it's lonely planet...

The staff here were brilliant - so attentive and friendly - they were more than happy to assist with any queries. The place seems to be partially used as a shelter or temporary accommodation so there are people living there semi-permanently, which isn't made clear when you book. It was incredibly noisy and difficult to get a good nights sleeps... More

This basic spot is definitely worth it if you're travelling on a budget. The place Is large and has a very safe and friendly feel to it. The staff have good local knowledge and are more than happy to spend time with you to explain which sights to see, where to eat and how to get around. It's spotless and... More

I booked about 4 weeks in advance and a single room with shared bathroom took about 100 USD/night. Good price for the location; pretty bad considering the quality of the room and the level of cleanliness - I have seen overcrowded youth hostels with similar standards for 1/3 of the price. Overall pretty sad...

We booked this hostel because it was the cheapest place in the Center area in boston. When we got there there was a mixup with our reservation and they took care of it right away. Excellent customer service at the front desk, very polite and helpful, answered all our questions. The room was a twin on the sixth floor, very... More

Cheap as far as boston in concerned. Clean, good location, helpful staff. The heater wouldnt turn off though which was extreemly annoying. They gave us direction which we followed but it would not turn off. Bed was ok.

Could have done with another shower or two on each floor. Couldn't figure out how to turn off the radiator in the bedroom hence room was boiling! Beds were comfortable, free tea coffee and popcorn was great. Lots of nice communal areas but as there is no kitchen area it was hard to meet other travellers. Great location, could walk... More

40 is very comfortable and have a good location to go by foot to many interesting points in Boston. Nice rooms, and a very warm and festive atmosphere. The bathroom is shared, so it gives the illusion of being in a student dorm which is part of the charm. The lobby is very nice place to be. Good internet access.... More
