Staff extremely friendly and drive to/from nearest metro stop every 30mins until midnight (public bus also available, takes 5 mins but not walkable). Location (and thus value for money) is key downfall of this hostel as otherwise it is perfectly adequate, good showers, large rooms (although bunk beds were uncomfortable and top bed lacked safety rail). Everett as a location is uninspiring but distance/time to downtown Boston is acceptable. Breakfast simple but effective - coffee

Not many hostels to choose from in Boston and while this one was some way out of town it did have decent facilities and provided a free shuttle service (which was regular) from and to the local metro stop. Breakfast was included too which was nice and it had a bar with cheap beer.

Enjoyed my stay here. Ray was very friendly and helpful. The pub is very good at night. The dorm room was very large and comfortable. The wifi worked in the rooms very well. The lounge is large and has a pool table! The area is very nice and there is a shuttle bus to the train station every thirty minutes. I would stay here again.

it was good to know that the hostel staff are helpful - can borrow hair dryer in view of the cold spell during my stay. Chris and Ray had done a good job in accommodating to guests from all walks of life. No problem with the staff fetching guest who waited at the wellington Station. I can recommend guests to stay at this hostel. The area is safe and especially good for people from Asia who always look for safety aspect of accommodation in US.

This was pretty much what you would expect for a hostel. I liked that my dorm had its own bathroom & shower. The main issue I had was there is a pool table & piano that was right across from my room. While I expect a hostel to be loud, piano playing & slamming pool balls at 4am will ensure you do not sleep. My whole room was up most of the night due to this. The good part of this hostel is it was a 1 mile walk to the T which was easy to get through with the markings they made on the sidewalk.

This family owned hostel was perfect for my quick visit to Boston. The convenient shuttle ran constantly and on demand so I didn't have to wait long. Only a few stops away from Downtown Boston by train. The owner Steve is awesome and friendly. He makes you feel at home as you walk in. I would be back anytime and fits in my budget.

I stayed here to 2 nights. the hostel is in a suburb, and offers a shuttle service from the metro. This is probably not the kind of place you want to go to if you plan on partying in town, since the shuttle stops at midnight (which was good for me though). But i felt the facilities were quite poor : not enough power outlets in the room, nor lockers, and the bathroom are small and not really handy (like you have to brush your teeth in the toilets...)

The place is extremely far from anything, although they do make up for it by providing a shuttle service. The place is plain looking and without anything to draw a second stay from me. In addition, at least one of the staff members thinks he's smart, and tries to over-charge you on the drinks sold there, even to the point of standing his ground when confronted...nice. Do yourself a favor and try one of the other few options in Boston. The experience will be more valuable for the money.

The staff is very helpful and offers a good brrakfast. As the hostel is so far of the downtown, you can use the shuttle, that begins at 8.30 a.m.

There is not a lot of hostels in Boston so they all come at a premium, at $50 a night for an eight bed dorm this was the cheapest option. Don't let the distance from downtown put you off as the free shuttle is excellent and available whenever you call up. Good facilities with fast wifi, pool table and a bar. Rooms are nothing fancy and showers are a bit small and lacking in privacy. Clientele including travellers and a few interesting local characters but no issues and lockers are available free

I come here almost every weekend. The staff is excellent, very accomodating. I've never had a negative experience. They serve breakfast in the morning (pretty simple, toast and coffee), they'll offer you laundry services, towel rentals and a free shuttle to the train station. The place is family-owned and it shows because they care about their customers. The staff is efreshingly chill, the atmosphere pleasantly informal and the hostel assuredly a friendly, socialble and enjoyable stay.

They play music from like 9am to 11pm. They announce their "famous" free shuttle over he pa starting around 9:30am, so hopefully you don't want to sleep in. Also, the mattresses are plastic-y and hard.

Awesome staff. Their shuttle was really good I was never waiting for more than 10mins at the station. Made getting to and from downtown really easy, better than I thought. Good beer deals. I liked they had showers and toilets seperated in each room. Overall a good place to stay.

This hostel was very expensive (around $65 when you add tax) yet you did not get much for this money. The common areas of the hostel are reasonably nice, although what the pub actually serves is limited (no cider or white wine). My biggest problem with this place was the beds: terrible mattresses and no railings or ladders on the bunks in some dorms . I am scared of heights and slept no more than 1 hour when i was in this bed as I was too scared. Location is v.inconvenient - long train then bus

Just needs a little bit of extra work, it is acceptable but small things like the mattresses make a big difference. I think given how out of the way it is, the price is unfair, given it's similarity in cost to the boston HI. Decent nights sleep but certainly can be better

Really accommodating. Free transport from Wellington to the hostel. Really appreciate it. =)

This hostel did the job but others . out there must be better if you can get in. The bar was really small and not what I was expecting. Facilities were clean but not at all modern. It is a long way from the metro so need to be prepared for a 10-15 minute walk or to rely on their shuttle bus.
