The only nice thing they have is a lounge downstairs. It's pretty much it. The location is good too, but the negatives outweight it.
It was so bad that I don't even know where to start. The room was small, smelly and not renovated for at least 20 years if not more. The halls and stairs looked like from horror movies. The bathrooms and toilets were in such bad state that I didn't even want to have a shower that morning. Don't even get me started on the cleaness and bedding stains...
Basically - stay away. This place is so not worth the price they're charging.. Boston can be covered in one day, so try to get the accomodation outside the city, if you can. It's a bit cheaper.
Oh and I think some of the floors are rented by the homeless people shelter. A couple of them were hanging around the reception area and shouting at the people passing by. Definitely didn't expect it.
