Alright. This is a HOSTEL not a hotel but still. All say this though.. It was definitely clean, no bed bugs. If you frequent hostels and don't have a problem with that kind of standard, you'll probably be fine with this place. However, all of us that stay at regular hotels and I'm NOT talking about any luxury. Hotels like... More

Here are the bad points: beds are small and uncomfortable; the place is generally noisy being a hostel; there appear to be many permanent local residents roaming the place which makes it a bit odd; my room was on the top floor and when I complained about noisy mechanical equipment on the roof running all night and making it impossible...

Based on the fact we wanted a cheap room, we got that. At this point it's all depends on your interpretation of what a 175.00$ US room in central Boston valued. I'm disapointed because the room was advertise 4 twin bed, we got 4 single bed instead. Also there was one bed (mine) directly close to the window and it... More

The location is excellent. Back Bay is a very nice area and the hostel is close to the T station. The staff was always nice and helpful and our room was clean. It was pretty loud at night and early in the morning because our room was facing the street, but we still managed to sleep well most of the... More

Unfortunately I have to say that the staff was not very motivated and not helpful at all. When booking my stay, I asked for advice about parking as I was bringing a car. I never got an answer to that question. Two my email 3 days before my stay I also got no answer. Finally on the day of my... More

A hostel, not a hotel. Located in an old building with original style. Staff was nice and rooms were clean. However, given shared bathrooms, rooms being furnished only very basically and breakfast was not available, the price was very high. Also we had a fire alarm during night twice and in general it was bit noisy (due to the street... More

I have stayed at 40 Berkeley on a number of visits to Boston and have enjoyed its good location and reasonable room rate. On this trip I was disappointed to see that while the rooms are now painted brighter colours the property was below standard in so many areas. The same shower cubicle on the second floor was still out... More

For the price payed, this hostel is located near a T stop(5 minutes walk) which gives you acces to all the city. Very affordable compared to the hotels downtown. Be sure to ask for a newly renovated room. We got a renovated room(2nd floor, 1full bed). Bed was comfy and room was clean. Lobby staff was welcoming and nice. Would... More

Hostel style - shared bathrooms, pretty clean. Good reception and staff. Plenty of communal areas. Convenient location. Great laundry facilities. Parking is an issue but they have arrangements for reasonably affordable parking about 10 mins walk away! Wifi signal is a bit intermittent. Main downfall is lack of self catering facilities. Not really any refrigeration available, no breakfast and very... More
