Really good location, had a 7:11 across from it and has really good food and bars nears by, really close to the back bay station, staff are so friendly and really helpful, had a pool table and pin pong table, only thing is that it didn't have air Condition but did have fans on roof and did offer plug in fans for rooms that didn't have them

Never again! Booked three rooms for a family trip, got three rooms in three different floors. No air conditioning. Bath rooms far away on (at least) the same floor. Filthy, dirty rooms, had to change when arriving as dirt and belongings of someone else were still there. Departure after first night ... never again!

First off - the location of this hotel is fantastic. The South End is beautiful, with some fantastic restaurants on Tremont St just around the corner. But the accommodation is REALLY basic. We had a private room on the seventh floor and my husband accurately described our room as a 'hospital ward' because it was 4 white walls and a bed - nothing else. They are currently doing renovations which can be loud during the day, and Berkeley St traffic can be really loud at night, especially with the windows open (which we needed, because it was boiling hot in our room). Overall, we enjoyed our stay because of its location, but if you want a nice place to relax in the afternoon and evening, maybe look somewhere else.

The location is amazing. Right close to Back Bay Station, from there, Boston is easy to get to. Walking distance to Boylston, Newberry, and Copley.

The rooms kind of suck. But it is a hostel. I had a private room. Had a small cot, desk and night stand. The AC unit did not work. The room is clean, but quite worn out.

The bathroom on the 2nd floor near my room is nicely renovated, each bathroom stall is private with toilet, sink, and shower. I was most concerned about the washroom situation, but there was nothing to worry about.

The staff are quite nice. The courtyard was under reno when I was there and I did not use the lounge.

The wifi worked great and was free.

Just because of the price, I would stay there again, but not look forward to the stay. Boston is pricy.

Room Tip: The 2nd and 3rd floor washrooms are great, room 224 is right next to a good washroom. I heard not all washrooms are nice.
