After the end of my official trip to Harvard, Cambridge where I stayed in two good hotels, I decided to stay in Boston for another day as a tourist. I was a bit apprehensive about staying in a hostel but was pleasantly surprised to find it to be an extremely clean , safe and nice hostel. The hostel is located... More

I based this hostel primarily on the ratings and reviews on tripadvisor and I know you are probably reading this right now asking the same questions that I was asking a few months ago. Where is the best place to stay in Boston that has one of the best locations, value for money, good reviews and you'll have a good... More

The hostel was incredibly clean, modern and spacious. The rooms where fantastic. The shared bathrooms were generally very clean aswell. Breakfast was great and the staff friendly. Would be perfect if it was a little cheaper!

The moment I found out Hostelling International was opening, I got excited. I'd stayed at and HI Hostel in Dublin and really enjoyed my experience. Once they opening, I had an easy time booking rooms. However, since they've becoming a destination, I've learned to book a few weeks in advance because they're frequently at capacity. The hostel is located within... More

This place was amazing! So, it was a little bit strange having the bunks in a line down the wall, I understand that it's for privacy but it did kill off the usual dorm room chatter that is one of the great things about staying in a hostel. The bathrooms were great (but people, you need to clean up after... More

This hostel is very new and built in a very good fashion. It is located between 2 subway stops although the local area is very walkable! The staff are great and unsure where to eat, I asked a member of staff where was good... I ended up getting a list of great restaurants to check out all from the top... More

Very well run hostel, we had a private room which was great. Breakfast was good. Aaron came around at breakfast suggesting things to do and offering great advice, it made all the difference to our visit to Boston. My only complaint was the rooms were noisy through the night with sirens and heavy traffic, not sure if they have rooms... More

Although on the expensive side for a hostel, this one certainly delivers. Friendly, efficient service. The dorms are spotless and there is nothing I need that they haven't supplied. Extreme clean as well, especially impressed with the bathrooms. Nice to be able to walk straight into chinatown and well located for the station

One of the best hostels we stayed in during our trip, cleanliness and amenities wise. However we didn't find all of the staff friendly, and thought that some of the pub crawls could have been better organised with more activities to integrate different travellers. Great location, very close to the subway and the freedom trail is just around the corner.... More

I stayed here for three nights in July, On the last night I had very severe sinus pressure I got some medication from CVS which relieved the pressure enough for me to sleep but the people in the dorm next door were screaming and yelling which constantly woke me up. I waited until 11.45p m to complain to the front... More
