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.

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 was perfect! I was pleasantly surprised. Though I paid for a 5 bed mixed dorm, I ended up in a room with just one other gal. I even had a full-size bed all to myself. Super cozy and the facilities seemed new. One downside though was that it was a bit further from Boston than I thought. Not far from a metro stop though, and the Lyft cost was reasonable. I thought it was worth it for a nicer and more quiet place to stay.

    Very nice stay, Ryan and the rest of the staff was friendly. It was quiet and a good weekend away from home. Also I was not on top of anybody(it was not over crowded) and it was very clean.

    Nice and helpful staff. The house was very clean and well furnished. Bunk beds were a little light weight and squeaky, but hey, it’s a hostel and there aren’t earthquakes in Boston...right?

    Staff was very friendly and helpful. Bathrooms were relatively clean, and I never had to wait to use them. I stayed in a private room with a very comfortable bed. Definitely a great value for Boston. The location is in a relatively safe location near a T stop, but I would not walk alone/take public transit later than normal commute times and would not go west of Dorchester Ave.

    Great option in Boston, depending on what you are looking for. Pricing is good for Boston. Incredibly clean and welcoming host. Very safe and in a quiet residential neighborhood yet only a few minute walk to the 3rd Red Line stop from South Station. Great WiFi and a small, quiet living room and desk are available for relaxing or working. Kitchen available with some coffee and oatmeal available, along with kitchen essentials. Seems to attract a wide range of ages. Definitely not a party house.

    This was a very lovely hostel, very clean and with a pretty sizeable kitchen. There were several bathrooms and it never felt busy. The atmosphere is chill, and friendly without being super social. Very close to the JFK/Mass metro station. Definitely would recommend for a weekend in Boston .

    This hostel was very interesting. It is quite far from the city, but the subway is easy to use and nearby, however it does close by midnight so you have to be sure to head back early enough. The hostel is an old house and has some old house quirks. The beds are not super comfortable and the rooms are pretty bright. But the staff was friendly and the other people that I did meet were also friendly, but not a great area to hangout with other hostel people.

    Staff was nice and the location was ok. However I regret how the second floor bathroom was so dirty all the time. I am not so exigent but it was really bad.
