This was a nice hostel, with nice facilities that could use some customer service work and a little extra cleaning. I arrived around 8-9pm on 10/02/21; tired from my flight. Security is well set up as you need a key card, or someone needs to "buzz" you in, to get into the bldg. Then a staff member needs to buzz you into the dorm and other common areas. You are provided a key card that gets you into the room after check in. This hostel is located in Boston’s China Town which may be a bit of an adjustment at first, especially when you arrive at night and are unfamiliar with the area. However, once you have had a chance to walk around, you will love it and the food! But as with ANY PLACE, always keep your guard when walking around, especially alone. When I walked around at night, and early morning, there were always others walking around as well so I never felt terribly uncomfortable. Plus the hostel location is also great as it is near other parts of Boston worth visiting (walking-distance). When I arrived, there were (2) two team members that "greeted" me at check-in. However, Ashley I believe her name was, was sadly unkind and made me feel unwelcomed. Even asking simple questions made me feel as if I inconvenienced her, and other staff as well. The only “saving grace” were a few staff that was nice enough to provide me with suggestions on where to eat and where I could find a good place to eat. I wish I would have remembered THEIR names! Unfortunately, the less than pleasant staff’s name is the one that seems to resonate with me most. The hostel has a very chic vibe compared to some other hostels I have stayed at. Less welcoming than some other hostels I have stayed at, but had some VERY nice travelers staying there as well. But that is what I love about hostels, the sense of community with the other travelers. Having such terrible, unwelcoming staff, however, can overshadow that. Fortunately, the one nice staff and the handful of great travelers I met did not overshadow that. I stayed in an all female dorm with (4) four beds. It was very nice with large lockers to fit large bag or backpack. They provide you with linens, a pillow and a towel. GREAT personal cubby hole by your bunk with charging station and lamp; hooks to hang your stuff and a nice view from the window. The only thing it was missing was a privacy curtain. I had to make-shift my own. The bathrooms are shared but segregated to singular toilet with shower and there are PLENTY OF THEM! They have bathmats, paper towels and bodywash/shampoo in each. They also have blow-dryers which is a nice bonus. I didn’t use much of the common areas but they were nice. The kitchen needs some TLC as the current travelers were a little messy and I could never find paper towels and hand soap. Overall, facilities are nice and female dorms are nice. Location is great if visiting Boston for the first time, a drive from the Airport and a quick Lyft or walk to the Amtrak station. If only the staff were a little nicer I would stay here when I return. Unfortunately, I think I will stay in a hotel next time.…
I was very impress with the hostel. The check in process was smooth and the room was clean and reasonably spacious. I love the fact that the bathroom is separate from the room and it was clean with plenty of hot water. Their showerhead had a lighted monitor which would change colors the longer it was being used. Being the good person I am, I made sure to stop showering after five minutes. I have stayed in many hostels and it was a excellent experience and I will definitely use them again. It is located in Chinatown with walking distance to many sceneries.
No frills but located very centrally near Chinatown. You get what you pay for the room was very basic but if you go in knowing what you’ve bought then it’s a perfectly fine place to stay. Chinatown is round the corner and there are plenty of bars on the same street as the hotel. The staff are very helpful too whatever you need. I would stay there again if on a strict budget.
Arguably one of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed in. Super clean and spacious! The breakfast selection is amazing! The staff are super helpful and friendly. Great location to everything. 5-10 min walk from Boston common! The place was a little pricey however really worth it in comparison to hotels in the local area!
this is a good place to stay if your on the budget and its accessible to train station its like 3-5 minutes away and then its nearby to walking freedom trail and before you know it your just few minutes away to other places to see and they have activities or free tours just check their calendar for the schedule
