This would have been 5 stars if the location was more central, however the free shuttle is very handy and you don't wait much longer than 10 minutes for it. Staff were amazing, rooms were clean, facilities were also quite good. I'm a big footy fan (soccer for you Americans) and they have 2 tvs with pretty much any channel... More

Great staff Gus,Andy,and jay were great. Had a great stay. Pub was great so after a long day walking in Boston it was great to have a drink and relax. A special comment to the shuttle driver what exit? What exit? The staff was more than helpful in every aspect of this trip. I'll be back again to Boston.

I really loved it at Backpackers, I was traveling by myself and stayed for 3 nights. The staff is super friendly and helpful, the neighborhood was safe (I didn't go out that much in the evening, though) and overall good people. Andy and Gus, as everybody else were fun to talk to. I was really glad that the room had... More

My experience with this hostel began with a prompt and friendly pickup at the Wellington metro stop, which is a six minute drive away from the hostel. The driver was helpful and made me feel welcome right away. When I reached the hostel, I was greeted by a wonderful example of Boston charm. He greeted me with a smile and... More

The hostel is in a lovely neighbourhood, very quiet with not much around. 24/7 public transport within a 15 minute walk, costing $2.65 to get to the city. The only downside was the length of the commute, plus the walk to get to the station or home late at night when the shuttle didn't run. The staff were friendly, the... More

I was travelling solo and stayed four nights at the hostel. While the facilities left some room for improvement in terms of comfort, I found the hostel unique when it comes to atmosphere. The staff was very helpful and nice, and so were other guests as well. It was very easy to get to know other people. I really enjoyed... More

Great Place, run by friendly professional staff, Shuttle all day, to/from Subway Station. Rooms comfortable and clean. The Morning Shuttle driver if a funny, slightly nuts guy, but does give you a mini tour on the way to the station :) All in all, Good times were had here

The guys who run the hostel are awesome! They are really friendly and helpful and do everything they can to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. There is a shuttle running to the next train station every half an hour and you can call them to pick you up when you come back. They are happy to help you... More

Bottom Line Up Front: If all you're looking for is clean, quiet place to crash and reliable metro access, this is a good choice, especially if you are traveling by car. If you want to cook meals and have a couple drinks while making new friends, I can't recommend it. Pros: Free parking seemed safe for me and my vehicle;... More
