Positive Reviews

Centrally located in downtown Boston

This property was preferred by most guests because of its good location. Found in the middle of Berkeley College of Music, the establishment is near the main sites of Boston downtown. Guests can find almost anything they want within the area.

Fast and consistent Internet service

Most guests loved how fast and reliable the Wi-Fi provided on-site. They enjoyed checking their email, interacting with friends and family online and streaming music with no hassle. The Internet service has unlimited bandwidth that is very usable for everybody.

Friendly and courteous staff

Guests of this hostel commended the friendly and courteous staffs who were always ready to assist round-the-clock. They treated all their visitors in an attentive and service-oriented manner. In addition, check-in was quick and pain free.

Negative Reviews

No air conditioning even during hot, humid days

Guests complained about the property's lack of air conditioning. Those who visited during summertime suffered from the intolerable hot weather. The only thing they had was a loud fan that was not enough to provide good ventilation.

Lack of privacy- rooms are for sharing

Most guests who requested for private rooms expressed their dismay when they found out that they were assigned to rooms good for sharing. They were surprised to see strangers sleeping inside their rooms. Worse, some were mixed dorm rooms with both males and females.

Top bunk beds are close to the ceiling

Guests assigned at the top of the bunk beds grumbled about the little space left between the top of the bed and ceiling. The management should have double-checked the room measurements against bed measurements to make sure the bed will fit inside the room.
