2/10 Poor

Worst ever hotel
This hotel is like a college dorm-- noisy with community bathrooms that do not get cleaned enough. There are no amenities in the room-- no iron, no hairdryer, no phone to call the front desk. For two guests we were given a tote bag with one towel and one robe. It took 3 requests and 45 minutes before we were able to get an additional towel from the hotel staff

2/10 Poor

Hostile about the Hostel
We were very disappointed that there was no personal bathroom only a shared bathroom with the entire floor. The towels we were given were tiny and limited (only one per room even though we had 2 people). The bathroom and shower were not always clean or available. It was very gross to find someone else's toothpaste spit and hair in the sink. The room was tiny, thin walls no privacy. The tv didn't work either. None of the hotel on our floor spoke any English so communicating was virtually impossible. The downstairs desk staff didn't seem to want to talk about our experience. The doesn't even mention this "Shared bathroom" situation. We won't be staying here again.

Would definitely recommend and stay again!
We started in the corridor style bathroom room with a bunk bed (King/Twin) and I was skeptical. It was perfect! The ambience was quite cool, very clean spaces and pleasant staff. My only complain was a lack of refrigerator. We had medication that needed refrigeration. We used the early obtained once bucket and ice but had to replace often. Great to be able to control the temperature as well.

Great location. Great stay and facilities. We were unsure about having our bathroom down the hall but it really wasn't an issue. The hotel supplied robes, slippers, a bag to bring to the bathroom and plenty of toiletries and towels. Private cubicles and we're always clean.

Great Place-But not your average stay
This is absolutely a hostel. But it’s so fancy. And youbare not staying with strangers. We had 4 bunk beds for 4 people. The kids loved it! There are bags in the rooms with everything you need to take to the sown the hall restrooms. The restrooms are constantly being cleaned. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Easy walking distance from Back Bay Station. Also easy walking distance to Boston Commons. I would absolutely stay here again.

Great find
Great stay. Was a bit nervous of the shared bathrooms but they were clean and well stocked. A short walk to Boston centre - was a great find :-)

8/10 Very Good

Fun place but small
Very small room. I got the premium king but it was pretty much just the bed and a nightstand and that’s it. That said the lobby was really cool and there’s an awesome coworking space in the basement. The staff are really cool and there’s a really good coffee shop in the lobby. If you aren’t going to be in your hotel room except to sleep, it’ll work.

Very nice hotel. I liked the Revolutionary themed decor. Fast internet and decent fitness center. Rooms have all the essentials and are comfortable. I asked for an hour late checkout and was granted. The coffeeshop in the main level is convenient. Excellent location to the commuter rail and the airport. The hotel is located in a very nice and walkable neighborhood.
