Great stay
It was an amazing stay. Surprised at how accommodating the staff were. Other guests were so friendly. Location was close to everything! The room was clean, although only two of us were there. Highly recommended!!

Great experience
Top notch hostel in a great location. Very close to the subway. Great facilities and the private ensuite room was very nice.
Gerardo, us3 night business trip
Very Good 8.0
Location was excellent, within walking distance to several transit stations and attractions like Boston Common and Copley Square. Breakfast was pretty good, common area was nice and the rooms were fairly clean but quite cold (despite asking for the temp to be increased). Besides this, staff were friendly and the service was great, especially a guy at reception (sorry, not sure about his name!) was extremely helpful in planning out an itinerary for the day recommending areas, routes, transport and useful tips about the city.

Great Stay
Staff was outstanding. They were very helpful for this first time hostel guest. I couldn’t have asked for anything more.
David, us1 night trip
Poor 2.0
Not a place to rest
Horrible experience. The place is an acoustic nightmare. People are talking loudly in the hallways and adjoining rooms and bounces off of hard concrete floors and walls, making it impossible to rest or sleep. If you want to stay up and party all night, it might be a good experience.
