Hostelworld says:

Hostelling International Boston - Chinatown is a new hostel, just opened in June 2012 in a great central location near Boston Common, Chinatown, the subway and most of the city's sights. This clean, modern and purpose-built hostel offers personal lights and power sockets at each bed and a 'great atmosphere and lots of kitchen and common space for socialising, cooking, playing games or doing work on the free Wi-Fi', according to one Hostelworld user. We like that this hostel is actively environmentally friendly.
