I have a distinct feeling that this place is run by uptight professors.
You have to ring a bell and then wait a few minutes to get service.
Slow wifi couldn't even open email.
My room have tatami-like beds, but was mostly occupied by korean students that seems to never leave the place. (They are probably the culprits for the congested wifi:))
Paying parking at private space, feels safe.

Cheapest place to stay in boston at the time, good loctaion, nice staff. But the rooms were bare, unkept and seemed to be old fashioned. Staff were very friendly, no facilities as such, bathroom was for all the house, not just your own. lack of security, the key to the bedroom didnt work. air conditioning was very noisy. not worth the moeny paid

Although I liked the cozy location and atmosphere, I was distracted by the lack of sanitation. However, the staff were very cordial, and I hope to receive value for value accomodations upon my next visit to Boston.

My arms neck and side of face is covered in bedbugs! So gross! I wish i read the reviews before i stayed here! I have travelled all around the world in budget accomodation but never have experienced bed bugs! I will be calling the health jnspector on this place. It seems they know about the infestation but have not done anything to rid themselves of these pests! DO NOT STAY HERE! Its not worth it!

Room Tip: Dont stay! Its infested with bed bugs!
