The Hostel is located in Everett but access to Boston is very easy via the Trains. They offer a free shuttle service to the train, or you could walk or take the bus to Wellington Station, the bus stop is just down the road in Main St.
The staff at the front desk are very helpful if you have any questions or queries especially Chris and Steve.
The facilities are very good especially the hot showers and free internet and computers to use. Another good thing about being in Everett is that it wouldn't be too noisy at night and you can get a good rest.
Overall I was very happy with this accommodation and would recommend to anyone visiting Boston.
