The only not so bad I have to say here is that the towels were not replaced in the bathroom and they dont change ur bed linnen. The rest was excellent mainly the cookies close the doors...

Great place to stay, really good facilities and a great location a couple of minutes walk from Boston Common. Only very minor downside was having to pay to use the hostel's computer. While the rates were very reasonable this was the only hostel I stayed in in the US that had this. All in all good place to stay and would definitely stay there again.

Great location for first time to Boston! Nice staff, clean barrooms and washrooms, spacious public areas and even free Thanksgiving diner! The only thing I would argue is the price IS expensive at a $50 for 6-bed room.

A delightful little find and great value for money. All staff were exceptional. Beds comfortable and there was a nice, friendly and welcoming atmosphere from the moment you arrive. They frequently organised events throughout the day and evening which is perfect for the solo traveller or groups alike. Great place and if I ever return to Boston, I know I have a good place to stay :-).

Very close to Boston Commons and metro station, surrounded by a good variety of restaurants and close to many sights. It is a big hostel but well run and clean. Added bonus was the laundry room and breakfast.

Must be one of my top three hostels around the world, good security, good setting of the beds so that bedside light from the next bed won't affect you, you can have a new floor mat when you take a shower, staff clean your dishes after breakfast, few-minute walk from south station bus terminal and metro stations, cafe-style lobby

The location was more than okay. It was close to the south bay station (you get off and take all the buses here) and also to the downtown. However, if you want to see the western part of the city, like BSO hall, museum of fine arts etc you have to walk quite a lot. The room and resrooms are well maintained. NOTE: there are only personal restrooms with shower booths. but there are more than enough of them so you can get privacy and don't have to wait for it. The staff can be nicer.
