Stayed here as part of a large group in March 2014. Slept in a large room for 6 people. Beds were comfy and there were lockers to secure your luggage - you will have to use the padlock from your suitcase or hire one from reception. There are plenty of bathrooms on each floor. The hostel has numerous facilities, including... More

I stayed here in March and couldn't have asked for anything more than they gave! We had a few issues with the heating/cooling system, someone came and fixed that within an hour of asking.. Breakfast in the morning was great although could change up the menu every couple of days, it was free though so no complaints! The location is... More

Really high quality hostel. Lots of free stuff (great breakfast, cookies all the time, dinner sometimes). I stayed many days. A couple of times i bumped into some rudeness by front staff, but most of the time really nice people and overall really great. Hands down best of 3 hostels I visited in boston area.

I've stayed in a few hostels in my time, but this one was pretty special. The location is great, just a few minutes walk from the city centre, and close to many good restaurants. The hostel itself is beautiful. There's a huge, modern, open plan lobby with big windows and enough seating variety to suit everybody's seating needs. The rooms... More

I thought supporting hi boston would be better than paying a hotel for my stay in the city. I was wrong. The private room was small but comfortable enough. The problem arose when the incessant heating brought the room to over 80F while I was sleeping. There are thermostats in the private rooms that are supposed to be adjustable but... More

This is by far the best hostel I have ever stayed in. It's clean, it's affordable, they provide you with lockers (locks can be purchased or use your own), there is free breakfast and wifi and it is close to everything. There are also plenty of bathrooms and awesome shower curtains!

Probably your best choice for affordable accommodations. New facilities, great located just next to Chinatown with awesome places to eat. Nice staff, a good variety of activities, free breakfast and integrated coffee shop. Subway is also only one block away. Would definitely go back.
