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.
