I was in the middle of a 13 day East Coast trip and thought "should I stay 6 days at Hostelling International for $320, or stay at a hotel for $1500+?" It was a no brainer for me. Since I was traveling alone and knew I would be spending most of my time out and about, I chose HI. I've stayed at a 5 star Hostel before in Sydney, Australia before so I knew what to expect. HI ranks up there. I opted for a 4-bed dorm. Everything in the Hostel was VERY clean and organized. The bedding was fresh, large lockers and ample luggage space. Although the bathrooms were not in our room, there were 1 right outside our room & 2 more a few steps away. Very clean and fresh towels are available daily. I had to bring my own towel & wash my own dishes in Sydney. Dining room was clean, great free breakfast as well as a kitchen staff that washes the dishes. Staff was great. Very helpful and friendly. Can't beat the location. In the heart of the theater district and just outside of Chinatown. 1.5 blocks away from 2 theaters and a short Metro ride to Symphony Hall to see the Boston Pops. 5 minute walk to Amtrak/Bus terminal.
You can meet lots of interesting people at Hostels. Students, seniors, business people from all around the world. My roommates were from Brazil, Taiwan and South Korea.
