We had been travelling for five months, we were about to fly back to Europe, and we stayed one of the last weeks in Boston in this hostel, which we chose, because of the cheap price for the rooms.
This hostelcis probably for all travelers a different kind of hostel than the most hostels in the us, but its a very classy one. The owner's must have put a lot of effort in making it the classic, antique interior that is so typical for this place.
If you like a old fashioned place to stay, to get that slight feeling of mistery, which is also typical for Boston City, you should really stay here. The people who work here are nice, the rooms really aren't cold at night, they have really good showers and even a bath tub, and in five minutes you're at the sub to get you to Boston Common.
The only thing I mist though, was a kitchen to cook in thr evenings and there is no place in the hostel to sit on lazy afternoons and meat new people, thats the only con for this hostel.
Much bars, stores and supermarkets nearby and the wi-fi is really fast!
