Was like a hotel very clean. But no alcohol allowed. People weren't very social. And I had like 92 monks when I was there :s. staff are super cool and great. If your not looking to party to much ad a good sleep. That's the place

Only stayed there one night, but beds and bathroom were clean, staff were nice, and there's free breakfast! WiFi is a bit dodgy because of all the people staying there though...

This might be the most expensive hostel where I've stayed. It might also be the best -- everything was wonderful... except their wifi connection which is very weak throughout the building and logged me off continuously -- my phone and computer as well as other users' equipment. Nobody seemed to take the problem seriously. I will forgive that.

Omg!! I think this is not the hostel but just the luxury five stars hotel!! Perfect location with all things you need around, easy to walk to access everywhere. Super clean , more than enough bathrooms and restrooms, breakfast is great plus the stuffs here are super friendly and professional especially Aaron, he is super nice and fun! This place is more than enought than you expecting. I would highly recommend!!

Everything was good. The lockers are overpriced and a scam to make more money, but effective.

2 people in a private room - over $400 for two nights and we couldnt get a bit of sleep! the concrete surroundings echo badly and pipes etc send extremely loud noises and constant sounds into our room- all night long! the hallways are amazingly loud. there need s to be soft furnishings to make the hostel more comfy and quiet. the concrete floors in our room were filthy, too. i was sad to see a green hostel selling plastic water bottles in the reception. :( i cant come back.

THe HI-Boston is a great option. Extremely new, great facilities, nice environment... A bit pricy, though, but it is understandable.

The hostel is probably the best hostel I've ever stayed at. Everything is brand new, really comfortable and quite luxurious. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms, beds and facilities are nice and tidy. The kitchen is so qell equipped that resembles rather that of a restaurant than that of a hostel. In addition to that, the hostel is within walking distance of all major tourist attractions and also quite near to the Boston South railway station.

It's a great and very modern hostel with really kind and motivated staff. When you want to use the computer (internet) you pay a lot, thats not nice at all. But the rest great, good breakfast!

Toilets could probably be cleaner. It would be good to have a curtain on each bed for more privacy.

This hostel is the best I have stayed in - they have thought of everything a traveller could need or want. You will not be disappointed by staying here. The hostel is also convenient for both ends of Boston (shops one end and the touristy bits the other end divided by a park). Do it!

The staff was especially helpful and very friendly, and everything was clean and comfy.
