Hermina's house is beautiful and my room was spacious and comfortable. Very comfortable bed too.
Hermina was a gracious host as well. I'm very grateful for the way she accommodated my awkward schedule.
I'd definitely stay with her if I return to Boston and would have no problems recommending it to others.
My room was clean and spacious, the kitchen and other facilities were great! Hosts are very quick to help, so i recommend the place very much. It is very close to the Red Line station.
Hermina's home is a wonderful welcoming space. She is out of the country currently but Donna is available for any needs. The neighborhood is safe. Great location close to the subway.
It is very nice, clean place to stay in! The room is private with a queen-size bed. And the room is pretty large with a desk. Donna is also very helpful! They offer food, such as bananas, muffins, oatmeal, milk, and orange juice!
Really enjoyed staying here. It felt like a home. The bed was comfortable and the house was quiet given that there were several guests staying here. Couldn't really make breakfast as I had a hard time finding the oil and there was no milk, but there is a McDonalds very close by. They do have tea and coffee readily available and keep candy and nuts and other munchies the guests might need. They provide towels and the house is always warm. The metro station is very very close by and I felt safe and cozy. Thank you so much for everything Hermina.
nice, clean, well organised!
Very friendly, relaxed host, you feel comfortable, at ease in her house. Good price/quality ratio. Would stay again.
This was my first time using the service for a week end stay in Boston. The location is excellent just a five minute walk from the T on the line that takes you to thr universities in Cambridge and downtown. The bed was comfortable parking was easy and Ms. Hermina was very helpful.
We staid two nights at Herminas house. We had a good time, Hermina had a good understanding of our need for privacy, and she was very helpful when needed. The location is very convenient - close to T-train, beach, grocery etc. Thanks for a good stay.
