Liked: Helpful staff, good location, not bad value. Good communication from hostel before visit

Disliked: Our room on the top floor was stiffling hot. The fan gently blew the hot air around and there was no air flow at all on the top floor. The bed was so soft it was difficult to sleep. The room was the tattiest hostel room I have stayed in and smelt musty. Often the basics ran out during the breakfasts (coffee, milk, cutlery etc). There was no members kitchen which was a shame as many travellers on budget like to cook in and keep their own food in communal fridges.

Liked: 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 to use the computers which were limited in number. Security was tight. The staff were all very cheerful and helpful. The location was good, depending on what you are looking for but you can use the subway to get to other areas.

Disliked: The breakfast was good. However one of our party did not realise (being a bit groggy having just wakened up) that there was only one serving and he had only picked one or two items. He had to satisfy himself with whatever food were on open display! The hostel should devise a better system of distributing breakfast. We felt like refugees!I thought the price pretty steep for a hostel though they do provide pretty good facilities. The next day we moved on to another property which was much nearer to the Harvard/MIT area we were interested in and it was much cheaper and very good, too!
