"The place was kept very clean. There was free flow of Starbucks coffee/tea and pop-corns plus free breakfast. The lounge was spacious and well planned. Free wifi was available throughout the hostel but you have to pay…"

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.

Liked: The hostel is really not far from Downtown Boston. Very easy to reach from the South Station. We were welcomed by very friendly staff member - our room had a really nice view over Boston downtown. The breakfast was very good - from Fruits to eggs, cerial and bacon everything was included.

Disliked: I wouldn't say "I disliked sth" - but this hostel is really good for having a night to stay at . The rooms aint the biggest and the beds ain the most comfortables but appropriate for the 30 $ we payed for the room. If you are visiting Boston for some sightseeing and you want to safe money - I'd recommend this place for you . Its cheap , though neat, nice staff and good breakfast that ensures you a good start in the day !

Liked: The staff was helpful when I booked online however they didn't get the confirmation, but when I showed the email honored the price, just hoping they don't try to charge me twice. The place offers an area to do laundry, meals, snacks and beverages, and is close to the T

Disliked: Can't adjust temperature in the room and the beds aren't all that nice to sleep on, but for the price was decent.
