    Nice and very clean hostel. Staff were very accommodating. Located near the subway and convenience store (7 Eleven). Very modern. Bathroom was very outstanding comparable to a 4-star hotel. Location is safe.

    This was a fantastic budget stay in central Boston. It's a hostel but the newness, the cleanliness, and the things provided are more like a good hotel: clean towels, shampoo and body wash, cups for drinking etc. The staff is very kind. I will stay here again. I stayed in a mixed 4 bed room. I only had one roommate due to COVID 19.

    Small but very clean, well-designed, and private rooms. Staff is helpful with refrigerating food and storing coats and luggage. No kitchen, but a microwave is accessible in the housekeeping room. No true common area, group events, or opportunities to interact with other travelers; closer to a dorm-style hotel than a hostel. Toiletries and linens provided. Walking distance to Boston Common and train. If you are looking for a hotel-like experience at a hostel-like price, I highly recommend Found.

    Found Boston Common was a very comfortable and pleasant place to stay in the downtown Boston area. Great location. Exceptional cleanliness. Only one dorm room and the rest are hotel rooms so it definitely has more of a hotel vibe. No bar or kitchen on site and not a great place to meet people. Some staff was friendly but overall they were not the perky, helpful type. Overall, would stay again if I didn't want to meet people in a 'hostel' scene.

    Cancelled my second night after spending a night at Found. Was expecting them to have common areas from the listing, discovered on arrival that there was no kitchen or living/lounge area. That said, the bunks are solid and the en-suite bathroom was clean and well designed. Staff was polite and the hostel seems to well managed.

    Good place if you just need privacy and a bed. It has no common area for community feel like other hostels typically have.

    Found Hostel is a hotel with bunk beds. There was no main light in the room, only individual reading lights on each bedhead. This made it extremely difficult to pack and find things within luggage. If you are looking for a hostel with friendly staff, who are happy to provide recommendations on the area, you are best to stay at the HI down the road. On a positive note, it was very clean and the curtains on each bed was great for privacy.
