This is the best hostel I've been to in North America, great rooms, great facilities and great staff. The tours with Paige are also top notch. No point staying anywhere else in Boston!

Originally I found it a bit too expensive, but in the end it was worth it. Great breakfast and very good facilities. Incredible atmosphere as well. Thank you HI Boston!

Excellent overall. I'd just like to see HI put a much stronger emphasis on guests leaving the bathrooms clean. HI itself does a good job of keeping things clean (and things were pretty spotless when I arrived) and I think guests can easily go the extra mile to ensure standards are maintained or maybe HI can have a couple of additional cleaning shifts done on the bathrooms. Great place overall. Highly recommended.

Stayed there for almost a week. As far as location, cleanliness, service, breakfast, friendly staff... I loved it all. Can't belive i have never been in that chain before. Traveled throughout westren europe for 3 months and in the u.s for 2.5 months only in hostels and i have to say that i am probably gonna look for that chain of hostels everywhere i go. The staff helpt so much with problems that i had during my stay with contecting airlines and flight being canceled... That you so much for all!

By far one of the best hostels I ever stayed at. Breakfast was good. Communal areas were large, plentiful and very well laid out, which created a great atmosphere to meet people and hang out. Modern building and good facilities, comfortable bed, clean showers. Everything was perfect!

The staff here at Hi-Boston were awesome and more than happy to help with anything! This hostel is located close to Chinatown and other locations nearby that are able to walk to and from. If I were to visit Boston in the future, I will definitely stay here again. Enjoyed it. Thanks :)
