Liked: Awesome location for my interests, I felt very safe walking around this beautiful neighbourhood in old Boston, even in the evening. The staff were great and even let me check in very early as the room was available.

Disliked: Could be a bit cleaner. They really need new rugs in the halls.

Liked: Above all, it is the location. It sits right in the posh and elegant South End. It only takes a short walk, between 5-10 minutes depending on how fast one walks, from Bay Bay subway station to the hostel. Honestly, I got pretty much excited when I was walking along the neighbourhood and found out where I was going to stay.As to the hostel itself, everything met up to my expectation. The room and washroom are clean and well kept. No crowding was experienced. The whole facility has a cozy mid-century feel with a lot of airy spaces. The courtyard is lovely to both sit in and look at. The place was generally quite through day and night. This said, there was noise from the street in my room which overlooks Berkeley Street. But nothing couldn't be dealt with by a pair of earplugs. The breakfast was generous. The staff were easy-going and helpful, especially with my delayed luggage and bike-in-the-room request. I rent a bike to get around the city and was a little worried about where to keep it at night at first. But it was no problem at all with the staff. They simply let it go. Thumb up for the bicycle friendly environment!

Disliked: Price could be a little bit cheaper for a single private room.
