The HI Boston is super nice. Would recommend it to anyone. The dorms are really nice with airconditioning, real duvets and individual bedlights and plugs. Its not a small cosy place, but everything seems new and clean and there are plenty of the shared bathrooms. The lobby area is also nice. The breakfast is good, but the system is rather confusing the first day, especially if you show up when a lot of people are trying to get breakfast - an extra orange juice dispenser would be appropriate?

Fantastic experience, thank you for this wonderful facility. Right at the heart of the city, filled with a sense of security

Really convenient location when you arrive by bus at south station. Easy access to the main spot of center Boston, by walk. I highly recommend this new hostel!!

HostelWorld did not reveal that I would pay an extra $3 a night for not being a member of Hostelling International, so they need to be more upfront about that.

I stayed here for a couple of nights and had a great time. It's modern, clean and beds are comfortable. I recommend staying here although do bring a lock for the lockers in the rooms and be prepared to pay for a locker when checking out as the staff refuse to put your bag in the luggage room as it's for "checking in" guests only. If you are after something yummy at any hour of the day/night make sure you go to the dumpling house just around the corner.

The hostel is AWESOME! Probably, one of the best I've ever stayed in. The Staff could be better... They weren't very nice.

Everything was awesome! The staff, the bathrooms, the space, the vibe. The only problem is that the beds are kind of noisy.

Great hostel in a great location. Definitely get your reservation here before it fills up.

The amenities and accommodations were great and fit the description. The beds are very comfortable and the facilities are very private. The only flaw I see in Hostelling Int'l Boston is that alcohol is not allowed -- not even anything as simple as wine or a few casual beers.

Bit pricy, but overall very good. Great amenities. Bit chilly at times in the ground floor lounge, but only a bit

Great place to stay in Boston, with a lot of facilities you probably would not expect for a Hostel (breakfast, comfortable rooms, great bathrooms, staff, etc.). I definitely recommend it.
