Good but way too expensive. And they charge $3/night if you're not a member (who the f* is a member?).

Although the cheapest accommodation in Boston still expensive compared to other HI and commercial hostels.

Just got back from a 2 night stay in the HI boston hostel, and have to say couldn't fault it! All the staff especially Aaron and Tori were great, aswell as the volunteers inparticular Anna for monday Trivia were excellent. The hostel was in a great location and the black board full of activities was a great bonus, and a great way to meet new people! The hostel itself was clean, comfortable and very relaxing. Would highly recommend if you were thinking of visiting Boston! :)

While the HI Boston hostel's facility is new, with modern features and design, I was disappointed in my stay. I was assigned a room on the 2nd floor, which also houses the kitchen and rec room. There seemed to be no noise consideration as music played well past midnight, and the noise from the pool table area disrupted my sleep. I had hoped there would be more consideration of this, considering I had paid extra for a premium room.

Thank you for leaving your comment - I am sorry you were not satisfied with the placement of you room... we do have several other floors with Premium QUADS and our Staff try to move folks if requested. At any rate - your comments are noted and we will try to work harder on this issue.

The hostel itself is ok: my 4 beds room was pretty packed and the bathroom was not shining, put the common areas are very nice and overall it was a pleasent stay. What really makes the value of this hostel is the amazing staff who work here! I had problems with my credit card and was really panicking, but Walter Rodriguez - one of the staff members - went out of his way to help me and calm me down: he spent over one hour after his shift was over trying to fix my problem and reassuring me!

Friday night my room and baggage were moved without any staff informing. It wasnt until I walked into the wrong room that I was made aware of the issue.

I often stayed at the hostel near Hynes Convention Center Station around 2005, but I couldn't find it on the web, which was disappointing. However, I found this hostel near the Boston Common and China Town, which is really easy to access. From there, you can go any interesting tourist destinations around downton Boston. The hostel itself is clean and quiet and it has also some meeting points for travellers inside the building, which means you can enjoy the friendly atomosphere.

Cheers! Your comments are much appreciated. Hemenway Street (near Hynes) is our old location --- we closed the old location and opened here at 19 Stuart Street June 2012... I'm happy you approve of our new digs :-)

I was very impressed with HI Boston. The rooms were great. The locker was wide enough to fit a normal pack and I appreciated the reading light and plug-in near the bed. The bathroom facilities were great. They were both clean and provided some privacy. I enjoyed the included breakfast as well. I would be happy to stay at HI Boston again.

Really nice hostel, very clean and comfortable. The staff were helpful but seemed a little impatient as they were so busy, I wasn't told about storing food or where the kitchen even was. Massive communal space so it became a bit more difficult to meet people as everyone was so spread out, but overall a very good place to stay with lots of planned activities. Perhaps a bit overpriced, as it's still a hostel after all.

The hostel was outstanding, the staff were all friendly and keen to help, it's located in a nice area of boston which helps give the area a great atmosphere. Thoroughly recommend this place to anyone staying in Boston.
