Liked: It have vintage feel with all hard wood.

Disliked: My mattress had broken boards underneath in the box below it so the mattress sunk through the holes which was very uncomfortable. I had to take the box out and pur the mattress on the floor which was very annoying.

Liked: It was a very charm filled hostel. Although perhaps a little rough around the edge, it was extremely clean and tidy, The staff were pleasant and helpful with directions and how to get around. It was also very close to Harvard for people doing research (5 min bus ride), and at the price range a perfect base for doing research.

Liked: It was close to the metro and there were plenty of restaurants for anyones liking within a three block walk. A taxi was called for us due to an early flight (6 am)

Disliked: The property is not soundproof due to it's age. Doors to rooms do not close properly, therefore a lot of noise is made when slamming the doors closed regardless of time of day or night.We rented a unit for three (2 beds) persons, as it had a private bathroom even though there was only my wife and myself.The two beds made so much noise that we did not sleep the first night. The next day we put the matresses on the floor on top of each other and piled the box matresses up against the wall. We used a screw driver to remove enough ice from the freezer section of the bar fridge to make room for an ice cube tray.There is really no reception to speak of, only a phone to call if help is required.We have travelled all over the world, 75 countries and this hostel does not measure up to others for the price we paid.Our cost was almost $ 1,000.00 for the six nights. Much to high but maybe that's par for Boston.
