Liked: The wifi, the common use areas, the very helpful staff.

Disliked: The showers were all very bad, in that the faucet heads would not move, nor allowed a strong and even flow of water. They smelled badly as well.

City break

Liked: The outside patio/garden is lovely. The front desk people are helpful. The place is pretty clean. The breakfast is copious (but the greasy-heart-attack bacon/hashbrowns could do with a bit more love and a little less swimming in lakes of grease!). For Boston, this place is cheap (but only for Boston!)

Disliked: The rooms are grim (but clean). Some showers need replacing (3rd floor Niagra Falls, men's bathroom).

Business / conference, City break

Liked: Prima voor een paar nachten in Boston. Dichtbij genoeg bij het centrum. Ontbijt is genoeg voor de rest van de dag.

Disliked: De kamer waar ik in sliep was erg warm, zelfs wanneer ik het raam wagenwijd open zette. Het lijkt slecht te luchten.

Liked: The friendly staff. The communal lounge and garden areas.

Disliked: The most difficult aspect was not having a washbasin in the room which meant a trip to the bathrooms to wash hands/clean teeth/etc.

Liked: This was a great find, We booked the private room with shared bathroom and were really happy with our stay. The main lobby was amazing and had free starbucks coffee. The room was spacious with a great view of the garden area out back. There is free breakfast included with the price, I would advise getting down early to get some of the better choices.

Disliked: the staff were very relaxed and it took a little longer than desired to check in.

Liked: Why hotels in Boston are so expensive?This is one of the cheapest hotel, but should call "dorm".Complementary Starbucks coffee by machine, popcorn, I love them!Breakfast was nice, just standard.

Disliked: Wifi worked well only on the reception, lounge level. In my room(3rd floor), wifi worked just 10min each hour. No bed frame, just a mat on a bed stand. On sleeping, a mat slipped off and I fell on my back on the floor. My glasses were broken under the mat.....

Liked: Staff was okay, free cookies and popcorn and that was it. Staff was pretty slow though,didnt seem to care about customers at all.

Disliked: This hostel is in reality, a senior housing place, weird old people live here all year round. Not a backpacker friendly place AT ALL.
