I stayed here in an apartment with four other friends. The price was amazing for the location. The 'T' Green Line (Boston College Branch) provided an excellent connection into the City Centre and was inexpensive. Harvard Avenue and the surrounding main roads have adequate offer of retail, food and drink etc. The decor of the place is intentionally old-fashioned. I... More

I would describe our stay here as comically bad for the following reasons: 1 - We could hear everything that went on in the bathroom (including various bowel and gas movements); 2 - the whole place could use some maintenance, especially the stairs that slope and creak like they are about to fall down, the exterior wood paneling that looks...

Cheap, Cheap. Was a good experience, stayed in a share room and was clean. Bathroom is big and it's not that bad. Has a public space, has wifi, and it's 35 dollars, can't complain about that. It's not as clean as one wishes, but for a 35 bucks place, is not bad. You just have to walk 5 minutes to... More

I share many of the feelings of other reviewers. The price is cheap ($50 per person). It's a good deal for one person. But it's not such a fantastic deal for couples. If frills matter at all to you, don't choose this place. Pay a little more a night and go to a regular hotel. We didn't find the Farrington... More

Location: seemed decent, fairly safe. Nothing fancy, typical college area with lots of little restaurants and shops. It was an interesting, nice walk to downtown from here, but fairly far (over an hour and a half for me). The train is close though of you prefer that. Room: It looked ok, seemed like everything could use a good scrub, but... More

Only thing I can tell you is that I left a bottle of bed bug spray under sink in room 102. Good luck.

We had mice in our room, that woke us up in the middle of the night. Despite the fact that we were moved to another room, the hostel's staff member was annoyed and explained that "it's an old house, it happens", but not for $100 a night!!!.

Shocking!!! Filthy!!! Dump!!! You will walk up loose stairs into a sweltering holding room with a mangy looking, lodge style, deer head over the useless fireplace. Until the profusely sweating check in guy comes to greet you to take you to your night of terror. The bedding has holes and is unraveling at the seams. The TV gets a few... More

I spent 3 nights in Boston. I slept one at Logan's Terminal E, another one on top of a one story structure at Boston Common park, and the third one here. If I had to do it all over again, I would go out drinking with my $50, instead of spending them here, and just sleep at the park again.... More

Everything in Boston was expensive but I thought the farrington was fine. Nice hotel porch to sit on in the evening, clean room, got upgraded to one with its own bathroom, and the staff was pleasant. I could see the room getting too warm or cold during extreme weather but it was fine while I was there. Also conveniently located... More
