Property Description

Although we are just outside the downtown Boston city limits, (4 subway stops from Haymarket), the newly renovated Backpackers Hostel more than makes up for that with, not just superior guest services, but with the most exceptional guest services in the hostel business. All our staff are trained to do whatever it takes to make sure that you have the absolute best experience we can provide, while you visit one of the most historic and interesting cities in all of America. We appreciate your business and we want to prove it to you.

If you are taking your car to Boston, Backpackers Hostel is the ONLY hostel you would want to stay at. We are located 3 miles from Central Boston and you will not have to deal with any of the gridlock traffic that hampers Central Boston. This is a HUGE advantage and will make your visit more enjoyable. TRAFFIC can ruin everything. Also our PARKING $5. Park your car and use our famous SHUTTLE SERVICE for the rest of your visit, without any worries.

If you are using a GPS to find Backpackers, be sure to enter our correct address: 13 School Street Everett MA 02149.

Begin your morning with complimentary coffee or tea in our breakfast nook before you board our FREE SHUTTLE SERVICE to Wellington Station, just 4 stops from central Boston.
If you prefer to get some exercise and walk to the subway, there is a painted ORANGE LINE from our front door to Wellington Station. This walk will take about 15 minutes.
Backpackers Hostel is located on the Orange Line (Wellington Station), the premiere line on the Boston Metro System. The Orange Line provides the MOST DIRECT access to the popular tourist attractions in Boston:

(North Station) The Famous North End and Boston Garden
(Haymarket Station) Faneuil Hall Marketplace, Cheers Pub at Quincy Market
(State) The New England Aquarium, Whale Watching Tours
(Downtown Crossing) The Freedom Trail and Boston Common

If HARVARD UNIVERSITY and MIT are on your itinerary, both destinations are easily accessible by public transportation or automobile to Cambridge.

We are also the closest hostel from Salem MA out of all the hostels in Boston.

RETURNING to Backpackers Hostel on Public Transportation is very easy. Get to Wellington Station on the ORANGE LINE.
From Wellington Station you can call our FREE SHUTTLE SERVICE up until 11pm for a quick pick-up,take a 3 minute taxi ride from Wellington Station to Backpackers, $6 fare, or take the #110 or #97 bus to Gladstone Street and walk about 2 minutes to Backpackers, $2 fare
After arriving back at our hostel you can relax in our cozy pub and discuss your day with other travelers, use our FREE COMPUTERS or connect to our FREE WI-FI and just get comfortable and relax.
Our Check-In closes at 10pm daily, 11pm on weekends, yet we can accommodate those who have trouble arriving before 10pm. Contact our front desk to make arrangements before your arrival.

Once again our focus is to provide a safe, comfortable and relaxing setting for all our guests after they tour the bustling and busy city of Boston.

" Ugh, supply and demand. Boston is really, really expensive. First the location in Everett isn't a big deal. It's 10 minutes by car from downtown, they run a shuttle to the train, train is 10 minutes from downtown. I even walked from downtown once. Facilities aren't anything special; but they're fairly well maintained. Would really recommend installing some fans. The 8 bed dude's dorm just ceaselessly smelled like stagnant dude smell. You'd be advised to take a bed by the window... "
