It is cheap, well heated, not far away from downtown Two showers per floor is not enough
The stuffs are ok. The hotel description on the internet and actual hotel completely contradicting. Out of the 5 nights I was staying, I couldn't not able to sleep for a single nights. The banging of the door, people chatting on the corridor late nights, room smell, bed squeaking...etc. contributing for my miserable nights which I never been experiencing before. Judging from all these services and the sanitation of the rooms, washrooms and the corridors, I havent touch the breakfast which was included in the price. This is maybe the biggest mistake I ever made regrading vacationing.
Close to everything, staff was always friendly, great for the money, hearty free breakfast. n/a
Convenient location Could have told me it's a ywca
the breakfast is very English very big fat, the sockets in the room are all two holes...I could not charge my laptop. the room is also noisy near street, and the heating did work, and the blanket was just better than nothing and I felt very cold in the room.
Nothing? Coming from Italy I had not quite clear what a ywca is, I thought it would look like a youth hostel. No ac anywhere, Boston is humid, hot and sticky in summertime. It was deadly hot in the room.Also very expensive for being less that a hostel.
staff, location private room is without washroom
Well de breakfast was pretty good and the bathroom, although it was shared, was clean. Also you have a / eleven near and many restaurants close. Nice if you are a Backpacker If you travel by car, the haven´t parking, so nearest was 24$ a day. The room seems old.
Next to the train and subway station, and not far from downtown and seaport area. Good internet access in the rooms. Very good breakfasts, during the weekend. The room was not very comfortable: no air conditioning, no tap, broken blind. Only two showers for a lot of rooms on the floor.
Reasonable price, great food, breakfast included, Close to downtown
I was un aware that there was no private room and this place is a youth hostel. I canceled on the spot and then was stuck with a $400 hotel room because Boston is over priced for no logical reason.
There was no a/c and no fans. It was hot hot hot in our room on this summer day. The kitchen was almost a joke. We could not find a single spoon or fork! They do not recycle - shame on them!
Location, modernness, cleanliness, convenience all excellent. Code for doors simplifies the process. Kitchen well stocked and generally available. Bathrooms were large, clean, efficient. Enough so that access was not a problem. We'd use STRBoston again. We visited in November. Our room temperature was around 62-63 degrees -- controlled by locked thermostat in hall. Window would not lock, but fixed the next morning. Hair driers did not work -- took two days to fix -- used others on floor above.
It was clean, had the basic necessities, easy to access, good kitchen and laundry facilities, safe, convenient location close to buses and downtown, affordable price. It was across the street from a bar and at night the bar patrons were quite noisy until 2:00 am, making it difficult for me to sleep well. Also, there is no parking close by, so people with vehicles need to know that they will have to park far away and walk for about 20 min. to reach a parking garage from the hotel. There is no dining area, so patrons need to eat in their rooms.
