    I had a great time staying at the Backpackers Hostel and Pub. The staff there really made my day and was very friendly and always keen to help out, if anything popped up! The shuttle service to the closest train station runs very frequently and makes up for the fact that the hostel itself is a little further outside the city. From the closest train stop it takes about 10-15 min to get to downtown which is perfectly fine. The facilities are a little older but everything is clean & works fine.

    Clean facilities, very friendly staff. Not in the center of Boston, but I liked that. Area seemed nice and was quiet at night. Shout out to Wayne, best shuttle driver! When I come back to Boston, I’m definitely staying here again.

    There was no air conditioning. None. Pouring sweat the white time. And no fitted sheets just two regular sheets so every time you moved you were sleeping in an uncovered plastic mattress. This is far and above the WORST experience I’ve ever had in an American hostel.
