Liked: I liked the friendliness of the staff and of several of the permanent residents. The location is wonderful. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean. Breakfast is good. My only regret was that it was so hot, but nobody can be blamed for that. I'll certainly be back!

Liked: I liked nothing about the property. The temperature was around 95 and there is no air conditioning. I couldn't sleep the whole night and I had to check out a day earlier. That was pathetic.

Federico Heinen Tarsia

17 August 2009 Federico would recommend this property

Liked: Location was good for what I needed although if touring the main sights, other locations are better (like near the business district). It is a good deal, cost/benefit.Staff at reception was nice and helpful, although never proactively offered any excursions or packages to me to tour around Boston. Less business for them I guess.

Disliked: Federico left no negative feedback.

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.
