The best hostel I've ever stayed at. The hostel only opened in 2012, and you can tell - everything screams brand spanking new. The dorm rooms are well designed and comfortable, the common areas are very modern, the kitchen is spacious, the list goes on and on.
Breakfast is included, and includes many options, such as muffins, bagels, bread, eggs, cereal, and many beverage options as well. There is also a small cafe downstairs with more food options.
Location is fantastic, a very short walk from the city's train/bus station, and walking distance to pretty much all the attractions. Tons of eating options nearby, and the neighbourhood is good.
Staff are friendly and very helpful, and there are a good number of free hostel-hosted activities, including a bowling night. Also, the price is reasonable - believe it was around ~$40/night for a bed.
My ONLY complaint would be the wireless - while I was there, it was TERRIBLE, and I was not the only one having issues. Even simply surfing the net was close to impossible at times, regardless of location.
On the whole, this is as close to a perfect hostel as you will get in North America, and I would highly recommend booking your Boston stay here if you're coming to town.
