We are located walking distance to the brand new Encore Casino! It is less than 1 mile away!

If you are taking your car to Boston, Backpackers Hostel is the ONLY hostel you would want to stay at.

    Hostel was what you'd expect for the price, but the staff was all wonderful. Having free breakfast provided and the shuttle to the train station was fantastic.

    Pros: Cheap Parking $10 a night and free on the street on the weekend. Cheaper than hostels in Boston (hostel is in the city of Everett) Staff was friendly and never had an issue being taken to metro line or getting picked up. Cons: No atmosphere at all (Was told that during the summer is really busy but I was there in the fall) My three roommates where not travelers but long term residents not really interested in meeting travelers. At night there is nothing to do around the hostel.

    My flight had been delayed and I wasn't able to arrive at the time I originally thought I was going to arrive at. By the time I got to the hostel it was locked and no one was on staff. It was 3AM and I didn't know what to do. My uber driver offered to drive me an hour home, and I decided to take the risk. Thankfully he was actually genuine and helped me but being locked out in the middle of the night was not ideal.

    This hostel is sub par. No real sheets, just another blanket, so you end up sleeping on a stained mattress. The showers take up to 10 minutes to warm up, and some of the shower heads aren't even screwed in properly. The 'breakfast' the serve is toast with pb&j and butter, and some tea and coffee. The hostel is far from city center. the shuttles to the subway are usually late. The general atmosphere feels UNSAFE. Have to pull the door hard to get it to lock. Not enough characters to say it all.
