Hostelling International Boston - Chinatown is a new hostel, just opened in June 2012 in a great central location near Boston Common, Chinatown, the subway and most of the city's sights. This clean, modern and purpose-built hostel offers personal lights and power sockets at each bed and a 'great atmosphere and lots of kitchen and common space for socialising, cooking, playing games or doing work on the free Wi-Fi', according to one Hostelworld user. We like that this hostel is actively environmentally friendly.

Overview

Welcome to HI Boston – a fun, friendly place to stay when you're exploring the city. Because our building was created especially for us, there are loads of useful features, from lights and power sockets by each bed, to a handy lift to the top floor! We'll give you a free breakfast each morning so you can explore your Chinatown surroundings and hold off buying food until lunch. Hang out with fellow travellers in the kitchen and common spaces, where we've got a pool table (up for a tournament?), piano and TV room with cable channels.

Location

You'll be about a 15-minute stroll from downtown sites like Custom Tower House and Old South Meeting House, where they organised a famous tea party more than 200 years ago. Boston Common's around the corner and iconic universities like Harvard and M.I.T. are a couple of stops by subway. You'll also be less than a 20-minute walk to the shops and market stalls of Faneuil Hall, where you can catch free street entertainment. Boston Logan airport is about a half-hour metro ride away.

Rooms and Dorms

Our male, female and mixed dorm rooms have locker units and a personal shelf for stashing those essentials. After checking in at the 24-hour reception, we'll give you free bedding, a duvet, pillows and a towel, so there's no need to unpack your own. Each room has a bathroom outside in the hallway, complete with soap and hairdryers. For a little extra comfort, book a private room: these have TVs and en-suites with baths for a long, luxurious soak.

Extras and activities

If you're after tips or want to book a trip, head to the travel desk. You can jump on one of our free city tours or set off on a DIY one using the free city maps – you'll have Wi-Fi back at the hostel to share your pictures on Snapchat. We've also got handy laundry facilities (hello, clean pants!), 24-hour security and an ATM on site.

    The staff was super helpful! We were able to check in pretty quickly and they answered all our questions. The facility was nice and I liked that our dorm room had its own bathroom and extra ones just outside our door. Great location as well. Super close to a metro stop and walk able to many things!

    Very good premises. All working as expected. I was allowed to check in a little earlier as bed was ready, so a point positive. When checking out, I asked to store my luggage and there was a fee for that, which was a negative point in my view. Very well located, allowing you to do everything in town by foot. Also they organize good activities.

    It's a good hostel. I enjoyed it. But the need to prove that I'm from out of the 30 mile radius is overkill. It was only by chance I had something to prove that with. I knew about that radius but not the need to prove it.

    Overall my stay at the Hi Boston was nice. Most of the crew were nice and helpfull. The property is very clean and modern and the only downside was the claustrophobic room for 7 ppl in a tiny room and the shower which didn't provide hot water or water pressure at any point.
