Liked: Good location, for Boston's price standards it's a very affordable accomodation.

Disliked: No sink in bedroom, no room-cleaning during our stay. This is not to bad but I think in the future the staff needs to mention this during check-in.Either I don't like the idea of the elderly rest home...

Liked: Its only a 5 minute walk away from back bay station and a grocery store. Across the street there is even a 7eleven. For breakfast you got a lot of different stuff like beacon, ham, toast, eggs, pancakes and so on. In the lobby you can play pool billard or get Popcorn. There is even a tv room.

Liked: Excellent location. Walking distance to almost anywhere in Boston. The private rooms were very secure. Definitely the bed budget accommodation I've seen.

Disliked: At peak times the showers are occasionally all occupied so you could have to wait a little while.

Liked: One of the best I've ever stayed in. Especially the breakfast oatmeal, cereal, bagels, eggs and a full spacious kitchen to make anything you wanted. Great cheap bar around the corner too called The Tam.

Disliked: Everything was great but you do have to pay for it. Their rates are high for a hostel but they make up for it with amenities and atmosphere. There were some families there so that surprised me of a bit but my biggest thing was they don't allow any alcohol.

Liked: Area of the city is nice. Breakfast is OK. Backyard is OK.

Disliked: Ugly rooms. Unconfortable bed. No air conditioning at 35°C and inside it was even hotter. The closet smelled. And I'm sure everybody can open the doors of the rooms easily with a credit card e.g. The stuff was quite strict, felt like beeing at a school camp. And finally, it's way to expensive for what they offer.
