Customer review

03 July 2009

Liked: Weird people at this place. Sometimes I felt like I was in a shelter for homeless. Restrooms were not always so clean and although I was told that my floor was female-only I bumped on men in the bathroom almost everyday. It's a cheap alternative to have a private room in a good location in Boston if you're in a low budget though. It's close to the South End, where there are lots of good restaurants and bars.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
