Boston house and hotel is very expensive, so please don't expect condition like hotel with this price. But we provide all the basic living condition and have kitchen available. If you look for your honey moon stay, please keep this place away :) :)
The house is old but don't let that deter you.
The room was clean and there were towels provided. There was an AC unit in the bedroom so we didn't have to worry about being hot. An iron and ironing board were set up and there were hangers in the closet; I appreciate the attention to detail!
The bathroom was small and could have been cleaner. The tub is clearly old.
Expect more of a hostel rooming experience, the bathroom, kitchen and living room address shared with three bedrooms with locks.
The location is far from Boston but right near the T which is convenient. It's one block from Revere Beach so that's fantastic! I would consider staying here again.
We received multiple emails from host but never met him during our stay. The rooms are dingy and beds not very comfortable but linens were clean. Window air conditioner in only one room. Windows in other room would not open for air flow. Very tiny bathroom, the size of a miniature broom closet, to potentially be shared by up to 11 people. This place is more in line with a youth hostel than a typical airbnb accommodation.
On the plus side, the neighborhood felt very safe for walking any time of day/night. Very close to "T" and to the beach.
The neighborhood is very run-down and so is the building. Common areas are beat-up and slummy. BUT! The sleeping rooms are clean, freshly painted, and neat. The place is very reasonably priced, the T really does stop just 1 block away (and you will hear the train at night), the bathroom is small but clean, the host is very flexible, friendly, and accommodating. As it states in the description, bring your own towels & toiletries and there is no wifi. The kitchen does have cups you can use (though not much else). Each room has its own lock & key, though the doors are flimsy and in some cases, have 1-2" gaps at the top, so sound will travel.
It's basically a hostel experience.
The house is big enough, however, the house is not clean enough, the house differs from the house showed by the pic, and there are some damages on the wall and doors.
Accesses to the beach and train stations were awesome. Neighborhood was fine as well. If you're looking for a place to lay your head at night, this is it. Pictures don't totally tell the entire story, but it's nothing, deal breaking about this place.
The host canceled this reservation 9 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Advantage: 1) It is close to Subway station, indeed, 1.5 min. If you travel around northeast area of Boston. It is OK.
2) Relatively cheaper, one night is only $72 and with Wifi
Disadvange: 1) It will take 40 to 50 min to Boston center area. If you travel around Boston center area, it is not convenient. Hope the host to indicate this point for other renters.
2) The room had no lock. Hope the host can improve it.
Therefore, I will mark 3 stars of 5 stars to it.

About the Host, Rex
I have been running this bed and breakfast for almost two years now, and I love it! It is always great to hear the various stories that our guests from all over the world have. My place is offering you the basics you need for lodging, this is not intended to be very fancy-- just a convenient place to sleep over and stay. It will be my pleasure to host you. Looking forward to your stay!
