Ventajas: Disponibilidad, precioDesventajas: No ac
El ruido de la calle
Ventajas: El precio y la ubicaciónDesventajas: Sólo un ascensor y tuvimos una fuerte sacudida. La habitación estaba caliente como el infierno y hacía frío fuera.
El mejor albergue en los que he estadoVentajas: Ambiente agradable, amable y atento personal, cama cómoda, ajustables temperatura ambiente, limpio, atmósfera agradable. Yo recomiendo sumamente este lugar, y planifique quedarse allí en cualquier momento que vaya a Boston.Desventajas: Nada desagradable. Me he alojado en albergues por todo el mundo y yo lo clasificaría esta justo en la parte superior.
Ventajas: Buena ubicación. Se puede ir andando al centro de la ciudad.Desventajas: Los baños estaban sucios y las habitaciones anticuadas sin aire acondicionado.
Please stay away!Ventajas: NothingDesventajas: My Stay at the 40 Berkeley Hostel was horrible. The stay here ruined my vacation. The facilities are filthy (bedroom and showers). They have old towels, bedsheets, beds,and out of service showers. We cringed every time we had to return for sleep/shower.
While my group was out, one of the ceiling fan blades broke off. We alerted the staff upon noticing what happen. We were accused of breaking it and were promptly charged an additional $150. The staff was unfriendly and the Manager was unprofessional/unhelpful. Please spend the extra $10-$20 for a far superior experience in Boston.
Never againVentajas: Staff did try to help, but not able to resolve after the fact.Desventajas: Location is great, however the facility is not as presented online. Advertised as a refurbished YMCA serving as a hostel with a wonderful location and modern amenities.The pictures are bright, sunny and clean.
Reality was a dive populated by bewildered expats and some of the seedier elements of society. The expats and I apparently had different expectations. The floor we were located on had a distinctive yuckiness about it, complete with stained carpets, chipped paint, a gross dormitory style bathroom with torn shower curtains and the a sink was not affixed to the wall. The room had a semi-malfunctioning ceiling lamp and a very dim bulb. Street noise - and smells were prominently accessible through the windows.
A drunk wandered down the hall around 1 am demanding that, "b%/#h give him his money," because he "had seen the mother %=#er leave." Not sure what that was about, but the suggestion that I should have let the desk know was laughable. Really not thrilled about the idea of wandering out into the hall with a drunk.
The worst part was the spiders. I survived 4 days in Maine with minimal bug bites only to get 8 spider bites in the hostel!
We chose the place as it was easy access to the airport for a 6 am flight. It was, but next time I will just get up earlier.
Older Hotel, mainly used for low rent residential apartments......Ventajas: Location was nice, easy to get to what we wanted to see.Desventajas: Older hotel, current renovation, air conditioning wasn't working, ice machine only worked half the time. Had to share bathroom, No TV in rooms, wanted 2 beds, but didn't get that. No place to keep cold drinks, or food. Parking garage the that hotel got a discount from was over 6 blocks away, and was still expensive. No place to park closer to hotel. Expensive for what we got. Had a lot of residents that lived in the hotel, and they didn't seem very friendly to the hotel guests at all.
Nice Space Ventajas: It's a great place to go without spending too much money and get a little bit of travelers delight without getting on an air plane.
Looks like a dormVentajas: It served our purpose. We wanted a place to sleep and we got it. Bathroom is shared, stalls and showers. They have a sweet deal on parking with one of the garages near by. Nothing really complain about.
