Very Good8.0
Met expectations
Friendly staff. Comfortable room. Respectful roommates. A bit noisy after 11 p.m. with doors slamming and people taking in the hall.

This Hosel is great!!
I came to Boston for a Nursing conference and I needed it to be affordable for me, because I was paying for it, not my hospital. All of the hotels in the area were EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE!!! I’ve never stayed in a hostel before so I thought I could try it. It was really nice! Sharing a bathroom with other people is a little weird and if you have to get up early and you don’t want to wake your roommates up, it can be hard. But if worked out ok. People are understanding and kind. The bunk beds are surprisingly comfortable. The locker was spacious enough for my carry on suitcase and a large bag as well. The Kitchen that everyone shares is great! I never had anyone take my food from the fridge. People were respectful of others. The bathroom was ok. The water pressure was fair in the shower but the sink is small and the water pressure in the sink is pretty soft. But for the price of the room and the location, you can’t beat it!! The location is great! So close to all of the great Boston sights and the subway (the T) is right around the corner. I really want to come back and see Boston without having to be in a conference center all day, so I’m coming back and staying here again!! It was great!!

Excellent choice for the money
Very clean, great location, surprisingly quiet in the evenings. Lots of young people around, but all are very respectful of quiet hours and space. On the negative side: water pressure in shower and sink or not great, and no carpeting. But for this price, who cares?!
