Property Description

We are a small, cosy hostel style short term rental accommodations. We call ourselves 'Boston Homestel' because we provide a home for travellers and since we're small, we'll feel like a community. Home, hostel, and community is our motto, and we strive to be the friendliest place in Boston to relax and enjoy the city with other travellers. We offer private rooms and manageable dorm rooms of just 4, 3 or 2 people in mixed and female-only dorms. Your experience with us will be personal, unlike larger hostels. We'll know you by first name, even if you only stay 1 night. We like to have fun, but this is not a party house, so we ask our guests to be mature and responsible.

We are located near the Boston train red line and the city centre is 3 stops from us. We're also located walking distance to the South Boston beach. Yes! The beach is swimmable, you wouldn't expect that in the city but it does exist! Our property is located on a quiet residential street, but a short distance to the main street and the public metro (the T, as it's called in Boston). We're near a swimmable beach in South Boston and Vietnamese town.

    Boston Homestel is great. But no one wears masks in there. That's not good for prevention.

    Boston Homestel is easy to get to on the T and is only 3 stops from South Station if you're arriving in Boston by train: very convenient. The staff is friendly and helpful. Kitchen facilities are adequate. And you can't beat the price! Thanks for making my stay easy.

    In the very short amount of time I was there, I was greeted by the friendliest staff and created a memorable experience to look back on. Everyone was really nice. It was fun spending time in the lounge, goofing off and laughing and getting to know eachother. Wonderful location, clean comfy twin bed, wish I spent more time :(

    Very friendly staff! The beds were very much cot style but honestly for the price/area there were absolutely no issues. we were only there to get ready, eat a midnight snack, and sleep. codes for every door, however the outlets on one side of the room weren’t working (apparently a new issue they’re fixing). Very easy trip downtown as well

    Great place to stay for cheap. Lovely community vibe. Do book directly with them on their website, they pass the savings on to you. The only thing I wasn't 100% about was the code entry system. I didn't feel great leaving my things behind when anyone with the codes can get into the house and into my room.

    Fair value for the price - Good location, felt safe, comfortable atmosphere. Rooms had very few amenities - I hope this place would add more hooks to hang things and power strips so multiple people could use the outlets. Bedframes were very low, so possessions could not be placed under them. (This made the room feel much more crowded).

    Very Good

    Overall this is a good hostel if you’re looking for something cheaper and close to public transit. You get what you pay for though, this hostel was literally just a house with random beds thrown in each room. If you’re concerned about security or are looking for a fancier hostel with room keys/lockers for your stuff, this one isn’t it. You could literally walk into any room you wanted as the doors didn’t even have locks. Staff was friendly and basic utilities were included. Overall a good stay.

    While the staff were all wonderful and the place met my needs, there were a few things I think should have been made available. I think there should have been lockers to provide better security of one’s personal effects and washer, dryer and iron should have been made available.
