Liked: Location was amazing, the breakfast was very good and it was safe. Hot showers with good water pressure and the bed was very comfortable.

Disliked: I don't really have any complaints. The bathroom showers look like they are cleaned every other day and they ran out of handsoap and hand sanitizer but I just used my own soap.

Liked: The location is great. Awesome neighborhood. Walking to the hostel from the subway station felt very safe, even late at night. You can walk pretty much everywhere: the walk from the hostel to the harbor is a half-an-hour.

Disliked: The shower could have been cleaned a little better. Lots of hairs in the drain...

Liked: the lobby is attractive.

Disliked: This is a very bad deal, even given the high prices of Boston hotels. There is only one bathroom for women and one for men per floor, with a single shower and toilet to be shared between everyone on the floor - up to 35 people. These get dirty very quickly. The room was very basic and smelt strongly of disinfectant. The sheets were torn, there was only one thin blanket which left me cold, and the blinds were so sticky and grimy that I didn't want to touch them. NOT A GOOD DEAL.

Liked: 40 Berkeley has a great location, Boston Common, downtown are in walking distance. We stay in a double room, it was clean and there was enough space.

Disliked: On each level there is only one bathroom for women and one for men. Some times they were out of cutlery during the breakfast, also out of coffee and a juice.
