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

The staff were super helpful and provide a perfect atmosphere. The shuttle to and from Wellington station makes it easy to get in and out of Boston each day. The kitchen is not fully functional, however there is takeaway nearby who also deliver. Overall, I had an awesome stay and would definetly return.

I would not recommend this hostel. Though the staff is very friendly, I had to sleep on a air mattress in the basement (room w/o any windows). This is ok if the hostel is very cheap, but I payed 60 dollars for it. The location is pretty bad too, though there is a convenient free shuttle.

A bit outside of town, Backpackers Hostel & Pub has a charm of its own. Though the quality overall is only mediocre and you might be disappointed at first (bunk beds without ladder, breakfast consists of toast with peanut butter and jam), the people who stay over are usually very open and friendly and it's easy get to know new...

This is the most expensive hostel I've ever stayed in, and I'm not sure the expense is justified, but the guys who run the place are really helpful and friendly. The breakfast is just toast, jam/peanut butter and tea/coffee - the beds are cheap bunk beds and the sheets don't fit...but the showers are powerful and hot, the wifi is... More
