Acceuil trop rapide avec peu d (website hidden) chambre en sous sol n est pas saine et mal isolée en particulier par rapport à la tuyauterie des écoulement et alimentations en eau. Le planche en bois laisse transmettre tous les bruits et il est difficile de bien (website hidden) serait nécessaire de faire des travaux ne façon d accueillir correctement des gens au sous sol.
Le quartier est bien et tranquille mais ce n est pas rassurant de traversser les rues pour ce rendre au metro surtout la nuit tombée.
On a eu l accès à la machine à laver et au sèche linge ce qui est très utile.
The whole common area was easily accessible. The house and room were exactly as shown and described in the ad, right down to the police sub-station behind the house and the Buddhist Temple across the street. The neighborhood is middle class, relatively clean, very diverse, and always felt safe. The subway is very convenient. If you have a car, don't forget to move it on street-cleaning days!
This is my first time to Airbnb and I have a great experience from it. Hermina is a very nice host and I just feel like at home. The room is big and beds are also clean. I will stay here when I travel to Boston next time.
Hermina was super friendly and flexible when we wanted to invite some friends over. I didn't really get a sense of the neighborhood but there's a few bars and good Vietnamese food around. Perfect place to stay if you want to save money and want to meet other travelers!
I would say this was the most comfortable and safe stay we had. The directions were truly appropriate and the neighborhood was awesome. The host was very welcoming and made all necessary arrangements for stay. Myself and my husband had to spend a very reasonable amount when every one else from the data science conference had to take up hotel for a minimum of $200 per night. I would definitely pick this place if I go back. again and highly recommend

About the Host, Hermina
Originally from Armenia, I live in Boston for many years. My house is one of many beautiful Victorian houses in oldest neighborhoods in Boston (Dorchester). The house is beautiful, big, clean and colors are my addition to its charm. I love colors you can see it in the pictures.
I love the idea of B&B and now I have chance to host people from the world in my own house. Traveling is part of my life and staying with family opens chance to meet local people.
I share what I know about Boston with pleasure and sometimes I learn from travelers what they discovered in Boston.
