Adjacent to Harvard University, Harvard Business School and Boston University, Allston is one of the most student dominated areas in Boston. With an exciting selection of bars, restaurants, cafes, and shops, this lively area has plenty to explore. Known for both a great creative scene and a very happening nightlife, Allston has something for everyone. Whether you’re a student looking for housing near the school, a party scene to keep you bar-hopping all night or prefer a quiet coffee in a cozy cafe, Allston has it all.
Fun fact: Allston has its very own holiday, affectionately known as “Allston Christmas,” every September when hoards of departing students leave their unwanted furniture on the sidewalks for people to peruse. It’s basically one epic garage sale, but everything is completely free – you can leave your spare change at home! Allston is great for those who love a small-town neighborhood even in a big city like Boston. The area is perfect for young professionals and college students looking for an easy, relaxed lifestyle.
In Allston, great shopping, exciting nightlife and cultural landmarks are all at your doorstep. Both our rooms for rent and entire homes are available fully-furnished, stocked with essential amenities and all utilities installed and included. We create homes in neighborhoods we would actually like to live in ourselves, close to public transport, parks, and local entertainment.
