Checkin is chaotic. You have to know tonput your name on a list which gets called out by staff. Mostly can't hear staff because of how many people waitingbin the lobby for checkin! Install an electronic number system, with digital display. Sharing dorm rooms. Always with challenges, but finding more & more people with a lack of "quiet" respect for fellow travellers. Luggage storage. Update the lockers, one-at-time, no one else press any buttons and cash only is limiting.

A clean and quiet place. They have social events although I didn't go. Great location, one block away from the Boylston stop on the green line. They have a breakfast, pool table and cafe. No alcohol allowed.

The beds were exceptionally comfortable, they were wide and the mattresses soft. The room was clean, the fellow hostellers were friendly. The bathroom was clean, the kitchen and free breakfast was an amazing addition. The location is great, close to two subway stops and the shuttle to the airport. Great food in the surrounding area. Close to Boston Common and the Freedom Trail, a short walk to Long Wharf. Would stay there again.

The place was in a fantastic location. It was exellent value as downtown Boston definitely isn't cheap to stay in. Was very clean and well maintained. The staff were good as was the breakfast. Would definitely stay here when in Boston.

I liked that it was just off Boston Commons. It was a busy area even at 11:00 at night. That added to my sense of safety. I was unhappy that the cafe does not have Gluten Free offerings (which I need) but the Thinking Cup Restaurant is just.a few blocks away on tremont with an excellent GF menu.

Hostel over all clean (was impressed with the number of bathrooms that also had showers; never had to wait), reliable WiFi, clean and comfortable bedding, and a good free breakfast in the mornings. However, the staff representing the Hi Hostel brand & the city of Boston gave a VERY bad impression; improve the staff attitude and all will be well!
