Good enough place

by Shayne O on 29 Dec 2016 (Solo Traveller)

Boston is not a cheap city. My hostel cost me about $100 a night. The place was decent enough. You're not going to get a great place here, but if you just want a place to sleep and shower in between going out and exploring its a fine spot to book.

Boston is more expensive than NYC!

So when you come here, don't expect to much but a friendly and helpfull staff. They doe their very best. The Berkeley is quiet good located; aprox. 20 min.walking distance from the south Station.

Spent one night in a tiny, private triple room on 5th floor. It was ungodly hot so keep that in mind if you are visiting in the summer. Staff were very helpful and friendly and the hostel has a good atmosphere. I would probably stay here again if back in Boston.

Laughable and disgusting

This place is simply gross. I'm not one to shy away from staying in hostels when I'm looking to travel on a budget, however me and my partner barely lasted one night in this place before leaving and never looking back!! Booked in for a week, and felt so unsafe and creeped out by the place that we left first thing on our second day and headed for a nice hotel. Staff useless, shared bathroom facilities repulsive, no air-con and awful ceiling fan, smallest 'double' bed in the world on wheels, furni...
