Thanks for the comments. But we need to make some clarifications. we do have AC in the room. The building is built in 2009. So it is impossible to be without AC and the AC works super well. But some people will feel very cold and ask us to set up higher temperature. Sorry to have you feel hot, but please let us know and we will adjust it for you and you can adjust the temperature by yourself. The control is on the common area.You know every person has different needs for the room temperature.
We give you a fan because the room is close to street. We want to create a white noise to provide a better sleep for you if you want to avoid the noise.
The location is actually shown on airbnb. Allston is a community town of Boston. And our mail address is 9 Gardner St, Boston, MA, 02134. And I believe airbnb shows that our location in allston-brighton area in Boston as well. Maybe you suppose Boston should be back bay area. Sorry this address is confusing for you.
Lastly, the area is very safe, proven by safe rating. Most residences are students from BU or Harvard in this area. Totally fine to come back late in evening.
Good luck for your housing searching.
