Ginger Beer giving me the rumbles

Oh dear lord. Considering the premier public squat spot (the Charles Hotel) is just a five minute shit-sprint away, why oh why would you ever drop into this terrifying basement nightmare dungeon?

Usually presided over by a totally disinterested guard, these downstairs restrooms are dirty, sticky, and just feel like a place you go to score crack or maybe engage the services of an under-aged prostitute.

This restroom is often closed, too, for "cleaning" and "maintenance," although they are always disgusting and in disrepair. Don't rely on these, and just don't use them.

What I Did in Here: Definitely didn't buy drugs.

Noodle Soup. Feeling fluid.

Central Square is pretty much a desert when it comes to usable public toilets. MIT fills a vital gap here. The student center, a huge building just south of Central Square, has plenty of clean public restrooms. For a minimum of student interaction, climb the central stairs up a flight or two. I've heard there's a new single-occupancy restroom up on the fifth floor, but I haven't used it.

Nothing to write home about, but clean and safe facilities in what can be a kinda sketchy neighborhood...and certainly better than your usual Starbucks/Dunkin's...

What I Did in Here: Just peed...sorry...

Satisfied and relieved

Public restrooms in Davis Square are hard to find. There are lots of fun places to hang out, but squatters' rights are reserved for paying customers only. So, if you are in a hurry, here's a little gem that could really do in a, um, pinch.

This is basically a big HMO, with lots of doctors' offices and specialists. Restrooms – many of them single-occupancy – are scattered throughout. My suggestion would be to go the third floor and just spiral out from the staircase. You'll quickly find single-hole unisex restrooms, no questions asked.

The downside is that these aren't really fun pit stops. The restrooms are clean, but not necessarily charming: very institutional, with emergency cords and little bins for urine samples (it IS a doc's office, after all).

Unfortunately, it's only open 8am-6pm on weekdays...but, still, if it's a weekend or a night, you're probably at the movies or at a restaurant and have other options for facilities.

What I Did in Here: Quick pressure whiz

Calm and fulfilled

Man, this is the Rolls Royce of public toilets, and has been my go-to going spot for years. Nice soap, cloth towels, full-length stall doors – just pure class all the way.

There are several restrooms in the Charles. The best one for travelers and non-guests is on the second floor, next to Henrietta's Table. If you'd rather not enter through the lobby (and really, who wants to risk getting busted?), just walk up the outdoor stairs into the courtyard and cut right into the glass doors. The restrooms are to the left of the stairs, right next to the Henrietta's Table entrance.

For gents, you've got a urinal and two stalls to work with, and I'd say 80% of the time you can snag a stall.

Time has not dulled the charms of this restroom. I've used it day and night, and even encouraged a drunken British friend of mine to vomit there after midnight on a Wednesday – which he did.

It's always open, and always there for you. Can I marry a bathroom?
