Good experience in the end.
It was confusing at the beginning because the location was different for the one I paid for. I couldn't also get in at first. There were also problems with wifi.
However, once I settled in and I met Rex and Miguel things started to get better and they were very helpful.
Just basic house for sleeping one or two nights.
positive: really close to the metro (1 minute walking) and to the beach (5 minute walking) good for resting and walking. Good and helpful administrator (Miguel). Use of kitchen with dishes, fridge, etc.
negative: just really basic furniture (maitress on the ground), old house, some windows missing (but it was still under renewal), not very good neighborhood (also seen some rats on the street). overpriced.
Then if you need just to sleep and eat something it is ok, but it is not "cheap". I would found appropriate a price of about 30$/night.
Rex was kind enough to let us stay in his Garfield street location because the other house was full. It was still in renovations but we had a pleasant stay. The location is really good - less than a minute to the T, and just across the road from Revere Beach. It's perfect if you are visiting Boston and all you is need a basic place to sleep at night.
We had a great time in Rex's place! Except the not very well fitted kitchen , everything was perfect. It's a good place to stay for a few days in Boston
It was definitely a functional set up and a good deal if you plan on spending most of your time in downtown Boston. Lacking a car and wanting to hangout in Revere can be kinda tough. Not all the rooms have AC and some of the window screens have gaps, be sure to cover up in the summer to avoid the mosquitoes. It was a pleasant experience for a couple, LGBT friendly.
