8/10 Very Good

Just a nitpick, but overall excellent.
This was my first time staying in a hostel. The only thing I knew was that I would have roommates for the night. And I was surprised by what I saw. The four beds had curtains for not disturbing. Each bed was labeled with a letter on the card key each person got. Each person had a locker for their personal belonings. Each locker had its own set of towel and washcloths for each guest. I was pretty stunned. But there are a few things that prevent me from giving this place a perfect score. The shower water took at least a minute and a half to become hot. There was only one floor towel to prevent slipping when stepping out of the shower. The ladder to the top bunk was at an incredibly steep angle and I felt so old trying to climb or get down from it. And I felt like there weren't enough lights in the room. But I am definitely glad I tried a hostel out for my solo trip. It will definitely save me some money in the long run.

Good location, friendly staff in an old hotel.
Convenient location, easy to go shopping at Prudential Center and Newsbury Street, next to the park and subway. However the room was small and there was no breakfast room in the hotel. What made my stay a lot easier was the tips from John on Boston's gastronomy. Valerie was also friendly and supportive. The staff saved my general impression of the hotel.
