If you are like my husband & I and don't care about having a fancy room, because you shouldn't be spending much time in it, then this is the place for you. The Oasis House was very convenient for walking, subway, bank, coffee, restaurants, bars... you name it.. It was all close by. Felt very safe to walk around after dark. Our room was on the main floor and we could hear guest at breakfast time but other than that no complaints!

We booked at the Oasis based on location, cost and reputation. Our choice was excellent!
The rooms were well kept and cleaned. For 3 nights, we did not book an ensuite room - the washrooms across the hall were clean and spacious. A healthy food selection is offered in the lobby area to get your day off to a good start.
Being near the Berklee school of Music and the Hynes Convention Centre attracts an interesting mix of guests.
The Oasis is well-located to access nearby attractions such as Fenway Park, the Museum of Fine Arts, and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, as well as the subway (the "T"). We found the T was both quick and friendly to use to get to the other sights we sought in Boston.
The bonus with the Oasis is the hosts. Gracious, friendly and helpful, they seemed genuinely interested in our daily explorations, and keen to assist with any problems we were experiencing. A timely referral to one of the host's own dentist got us in right away, with an excellent result, saving a (possible) risk to our great Boston visit!
When we return to Boston, the Oasis will be our first stop.

Room Tip: We had rooms facing Edgerley. The corner room, 105, was great, with a nicebow window to the street...

I booked the Oasis Guest House when I was in search of a downtown location easily accessible to the T and to a conference I was attending. Since it was early October and the MLB playoffs were also in full swing, finding an inexpensive hotel downtown was nearly impossible.

This spot fit the bill perfectly: affordable, lots of character, incredibly friendly service, clean rooms, a simple grab-and-go continental breakfast. One drawback was the lack of an elevator, but staff are more than happy to help you bring your bags upstairs. I thought sharing a bathroom would be an issue, but that was never the case: I was able to get my 6:30 am shower in, and the bathroom was always clean! My room was probably the tiniest single ever, but I was always on the go so it didn't matter to me.

You are within a minute's walk of a Whole Foods Market, a pharmacy, a Starbucks, a Dunkin' Donuts. The Hynes Convention Centre T stop is a quick jaunt away. The neighbourhood is nice and you are just up the street from a Berklee College building. Bring your running shoes, take a walk down Boyston and you find a park with a stunning community garden. Fenway Park is maybe a 15-20 walk - how convenient is that for baseball fans?

Boston has plenty of options if you need a gym, or a bigger room, or modern bedding and decor or an in-room coffee maker. But for convenience, location and value, and just a simple place to crash at the end of a busy day, Oasis Guest House is a great choice.

We booked this B&B for a couple of nights at the end of September, as this B&B was recommended on trip advisor and we thought we would give it a try.

First impression was not good. We got to Boston Logan late afternoon which meant we caught the rush hour traffic. It took us more than an hour in the taxi to get to the hotel and we paid nearly 40 dollars. I think there is a shuttle bus but I cannot comment more on this since we did not use it. Second impression was even worse... we found the whole booking quite confusing. In other words, you book a room at the Oasis Guest House and you might find yourself a few doors down the road at number 14 (Adams B&B???). We found later that they work together, but it would have been nice to be told in advance about this. Nevermind, we thought, at least we got there ok and we could enjoy some nice relaxing time before exploring Boston the day after... Well we could not be more wrong!! The room was very cold the both nights we spent there, so much so that we enquired about getting an extra blanket at reception. I later found out that the air condition/ventilation system was blasting cold air inside the room promoting the chill feel during the night. Another interesting feature during the first night was the neighbor playing a cello at 6:30am in the morning! As there is a music college nearby there are often students staying at this B&B for auditions. The room had paper thin walls. It was a good thing that we were still jetlagged so we were already awake at that time. Our first night experience was not fantastic to say the least.

There is no lift (our room was on the third/top floor) and the stairs can be a bit tricky carrying suitcases, so if you are a less able person, ask for a ground floor room.

On the ground floor, you will find the breakfast room, with all you need really. Pastries, English muffins, bread, coffee, tea, a toaster, fruits etc... It is plentiful, and the quality is overall OK. The buffet is a help yourself. The breakfast room is relatively small, with limited sitting space. In other words you might end up having to take your breakfast in your room (which is allowed).

All is not negative though. We found the people at the reception friendly and helpful. They provided us with blankets when we asked for them, advice on where to catch the nearest underground station etc... The nearest tube station is about a 10 minutes walk from the hotel so quite handy if you want to discover the city. The bedroom we stayed in was large with an ensuite and tv and good views on the streeet. We had plenty of space for our luggage too. The building is quite typical to what you might expect to find in Boston - brownstone building. The bathroom was also large with all the amenities you would expect to find in a hotel (hairdryer, soap, towels, shampoo etc...).

If you need to shop, there is an excellent Whole Foods store down the road (2 min walk). They serve high quality fruits, food, drinks etc... You might even want to grab a cheap bite there if you like.

All in all, this is an OK place to stay in Boston but I would probably stay somewhere else if I go back to this wonderful city. This place is expensive for what you get (we paid approx £150 per night).

Nestled behind the Convention Center on a quiet street, this small hotel provides good value for its small, clean rooms. Outstanding are the helpful staff, quickly offering to carry luggage or prams for you, hold things while you go out, print something you need.

The location made it possible to tour the entire city in a weekend. They served a very nice continental breakfast, and the rooms were nicely furnished and very clean. Victor was so very helpful and friendly, and HILARIOUS! His wit and charm made us feel right at home. This would be the only place I would stay Boston.

My first stay for three days and as a solo traveler I felt safe, comfortable, and tended to. Keith at the front desk was thorough in his overview, responsive and pleasant. He thought of what I needed and helped get my bag up the stairs. Although the rm (106) was minimal and small, it was enough and there was fresh fall air from the window. It was a busy wkend and staff kept shared bathroom clean and tidied up! The small deck overlooked the alley but made for a nice bit of fresh air with morning coffee. I also stayed two days at John Jeffries house. I far prefer the fresh air, and the attitude of Oasis. I'll be back.
