The room was very hot, which is better then being very cold....easily solved by opening a window. Otherwise the hostel was fantastic and in a great location. Easy walk to North End historical sites, the common, and Beacon Hill. Chinatown and several theaters right around the corner.

One of the nicer (nicest?) hostels I've stayed at. Clean and surprisingly swanky.
