3 of us stayed in the hostel and it was very basic indeed. the room was extremely hot, NO AC which is ridiculous. we had to get a fan blowing into the room so we could cool off. breakfast was okay. lifts were slow as ever. quicker taking the stairs. showers and toilets were okay. we got by. you have to wear flip flops in the shower to avoid picking up anything.
only good thing was the price and the location. free wifi was good too. close to the train station and to prudential center/boston common.
i would prefer to stay at another hotel which would have better hygiene then 40 Berkeley.
