This hostel had pretty average reviews when I took a look at it before booking, and I have NO idea why! It's great! The facilities are good and clean, the locker space is ample, there's a cosy little common room, the location is perfect (just a couple minutes' walk from the North End) - there are even WAFFLES as part of the FREE BREAKFAST! I stayed three nights from Friday through Monday and had none of the noise problems that anyone else mentioned either. Definitely recommended!


Not much to say about this basic hostel. The atmosphere let it down for me,


Fantastic location! It made sightseeing in Boston so much easier! The building itself is old and a bit rundown. Not particularly soundproof so you can hear everything from all the nearby bars and clubs (so don't aim for an early Saturday night). Facilities were fine and the hostel has a lot of cool events every week.


The location is so nice. but cleanliness is poor. bath room is not clean. but not so bad.


The free breakfast is simple but good. I like the coffee bar.


The accomodation fee was reasonable, considering the facilities and services. It was a great that guests could leave their baggages free of charge even before the check-in. If you would like to use the lockers, it would be better to bring your own keys.
