I would not recommend staying here during the summer time. There was no air conditioning in any of the rooms, and when I asked about a fan, the person at the front desk told me there is one in the closet, which there wasn't. Walking into the hotel, another family staying there identified the hotel as the "sweat shop", and... More

This was converted to a "budget" hotel with no sign of any investment to justify the prices. Beat up furniture in the room. Filthy hall carpets. Shared single sex bathrooms. No air conditioning. Super slow internet. I don't know if the Y is still involved. Someone is making a good profit.

The less you stay here, the more you'll like it. In fact, you might just use that as incentive for getting out and sightseeing in Boston...not that you need any outside encouragement. But if you think you'll walk the dogs and hit the hay for a nice siesta, I'd tell my best friend/family member to downscale those modest expectations. My... More

Great location in Boston, easily accessible by highway, public transit. Dorm style. Downside is no air condition. Inexpensive and good value. Bathroom was clean and orderly. Bed was comfortable. Stayed in a private double.

Room and restrooms were clean, the staff was helpful. Nevertheless, the room were very simple and the hostel wasn't quiet at all. Due to thin door and window you could hear noise from the coridor and from outside all night. The price was quite high for the service they offer, especially in summer.

40 Berkeley is a perfect location for people wanting to sightsee and go into the city a lot. The location simply could not be better. The train station is right across the street from the hostel, and just a couple of stops from the hot spots. The hostel is also in a beautiful neighborhood, which we walked through often, just...

The hotel is centrally located close to the Bay Village & Boston Common. Overall I was not disappointed by this hotel. We felt safe and close to everything we wanted to see. If you are lucky you might get a room with a great view like we did. Pros: Relatively cheap hotel $130 per night vs the $350 average in... More

The room was simple, like a dorm room, but that was what I was expecting. The building was clean and quiet and there were some nice amenities like a laundry room, a mini movie theater, and free popcorn (although they only seem to make it once a day and it would usually run out by the time I was returning...

We had one night here. It was beyond our expectations. Very cosy atmosphere, spacious room, good service, clean overall, nice garden. Good location! A hidden gem in the city :-) We will recommend it for everyone and will absolut stay here another time in Boston.

I was booked in this hostel for two nights. Room was so so and the bed was rough (well I did not expect anything good from it). I had a long day and found out I could not sleep well every night because of this. The bathroom was so far away from my room. The guy at the reception was... More
