Great Modern Hostel.Loved the free Brekkie idea :) Great location,The T station,5 min walk away. Easy access to Boston Common,bars and resturants in the heart of China town

Hostel is in a good area, walking distance to most things / subway. About 10-15 minute walk to South Station. The facilities were fantastic, including vending machines, kitchen, dining area, pool table, etc. The room I stayed in was a 6 bed room, luckily I had the closest bed to the window so there was still a breeze, but the rooms do not have air conditioning so it could get quite warm, especially if you're away from the window.

Great hostel but hotel prices

Very clean and modern hostel with excellent facilities. During my stay I went to a red sox game and later found out that others in hostel went to the same game. If could keep track of people attending the game (blackboard 2nd floor or at desk) and arrange to meet in foyer then it would be a better to see the game and meet people.

The best Hostel where I've stayed.

I loved this place. Very close to transit and close enough to walk to many places. Really modern fun vibe. Clean and quiet at night. Stayed in a six bed female dorm. Breakfast was good and I loved the common areas. Comfortable bed with individual lockers and lights. Pay locker to leave your things after check out. I can't say enough good things about this place. The only caution I would have is the street is pretty deserted after 10 PM on a week night for walking alone.

The HI Boston hostel has many good things. It's big, comfortable, very clean. Beds are good, there are many bathrooms! So you never have to wait to take a shower.. Kitchen is very big.. Looks like a comercial kitchen. Not very inviting to cook in it but it's possible if you want to. The thing I didn't like about the hostel is that its very boring. There are no activities at the hostel in the evenings, so if you travel solo, its very hard to meet people.

Todo estuvo bien, pero al momento de hacer el check in la señora me cobro de más, así que hay que tener cuidado en eso, pero en general estuvo bien y cómodo.

Great hostel!! I stayed for two nights and I felt very comfortable the building itself it's all very clean and modern, the atmosphere is awesome as well thanks to the kind personnel. I was traveling alone but made some good friends on the tour they offered! If I come back to Boston I'll stay there again
