Good hostel, will not meet anyone here, a little pricey.

Great place to stay and would stay again however the bathrooms need to be cleaned perhaps 3 times a day and the hot water runs out in the morning so stick to evening showers

This was my second stay at HIBoston, and it is just as impressive as the other HI Hostels I've visited. And the design of this new building is terrific. I especially appreciate the private bathroom/shower arrangement, and the clean,safe atmosphere. I would stay at any HI hostel, based on the experiences I've had. The Staff score would have been excellent except for a very cranky woman working in the kitchen at breakfast. And a group that kept the entire 5th floor awake between 2 and 3 AM.

The hostel was well located for many of the sights and was within walking distance of 2 T stations. It was clean and well organized. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The kitchen was well stocked for many people to cook individually. Different options for breakfast - porridge, cereal, toast, bagels, juice, tea or coffee. Somewhere I would definitely stay again if I return to Boston.

Clean hostel, excellent location. Staff were incredibly helpful. The free breakfast is excellent and even though it doesn't have a bar, it's close to a number of pubs.

One of the greats for location and facilities, atmosphere is very dull though, not much social interaction happening between guests, but overall a decent place to stay in Boston

Hostel was clean and well kept, what you'd expect from a fairly new hostel. Not much mingling between guests as we have experienced in other hostels but overall a great place to stay and helpful, friendly staff.

I loved staying at HI - Boston... the staff was friendly and helpful, it was incredibly safe and clean, and the kitchen had everything I needed. The events, tours, etc. that the hostel hosts or can connect hostellers to are very helpful for people who want to get the most out of their trip to Boston and it's located very close to the subway and the Freedom Trail. Definitely stay here; it's slightly more expensive than a couple others in the city but it's definitely more than worth it!

Extremely comfortable and clean beds! Nice bathrooms and facilities. Free breakfast was a joke and the other people were not the typical hostel goers (ergo prettt boring). On the whole, very good stay. I slept like an angel.
