    Very clean, great central location not too far away from South Station and downtown crossing nearby. I went in January and I thought the blankets were a bit thin but the reception was nice enough to give me an extra blanket when I asked for one. I would definitely stay here again.

    A great place to stay if you like dormitory style atmosphere. Instead of traditional hotel rooms. Great atmosphere all around!

    The hostel is very nice , all facilities are new and modern. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were nice and clean. The only issue was that the room was pretty cold, but when asked the staff was helpful and provided a space heater.

    Fabulous

    HI Hostel is really nice place to stay in Boston. The hostel interior is interesting and cool. Staff is very helpful. Only one thing I had problem with (and I wasn't alone how I realized) was cold on the rooms - I'm sorry, but 55 Fahrenheits (15 Celsius) degrees isn't good temperature for sleeping! Even if you take more blankets and sleep in your winter coat you will feel very cold! I understand that hosteling is low-cost way of accommodation but this wasn't good at all.

    NO HEATING. Visited mid winter. the hostel was just as cold as the outside, especially the showers, the floor is solid ice. water is warm but the flow sucked. we found some signs that were bs us about conserving energy: i spent 15 more minutes in the shower just trying to stay warm instead of taking a proper shower, then i used the hair drier to heat up my body. Extra blankets were provided but its a plaster solution. Breakfast is barest of minimums: bread, toaster, cereal, granola and apples.

    The location of the hostel is in a dodgy part of town. You shouldn't wander around outside the hostel at night, especially on your own. However it's in a good location for the metro and sights of Boston. The employees on the front desk were rude when I asked for help with things a couple of times. There is no bar and guests don't mingle and talk much. Good events on everyday though however not sure how many people turn up. No bar :( and a lot of older guests that use it as a place to live.
