We like that this hostel is actively environmentally friendly.

    My overall experience was great the location was perfect close to all popular attractions. Great value for money when compared to paying high prices for hotels. The accommodation was very clean and modern. The staff were very helpful and informative. Especially the colleague who set us up for the freedom trail tour on Tuesday morning at 10:15 I don't remember his name but that information should help you identify and praise him on his passion towards his work and people. Boston was just as magic

    Was so happily surprised at this facility with the amazing location near everything. It is downtown so at night you must be careful not to be alone because you can be mugged. The hostel is very nice Your locker is by your bed and the female room has a shower stall in its dorm so it’s only for female access of your dorm only, not other dorms. Very nice place, will stay again in a heartbeat.

    This hostel worked out perfectly. The rooms were small but sleeping was very comfortable. I wanted to steal the pillow ( but I didn’t). The common areas suites all purposes. I walked from Amtrak south bank. Station. It was under ten minutes.

    Centrally located, near local transportation and restaurants. Good facilities but the receptionist could use a smile and be little be more polite every now and then.

    Great Hostel, lots of areas for relaxing, tons of table space for games and eating. There was always someone at the front desk. The hostel is in a great area and isn't too bad for price per bed. My only problem were the doors (they slam if you don't close the door slowly) and the thinness of walls which isn't too big a problem considering what you're paying for.

    Most staff at front desk were unfortunately not too friendly and didn’t really seem to like human interaction which let the place down.

    The dorm room was clean and towels were provided which was handy. The cleanliness of the bathrooms was really variable - one I went in was fine but a couple of others were not good at all. The staff were generally brusque and not the friendliest, I only spoke to one who was friendly and chatty. Overall it was fine, could have been improved by all-round cleanliness and the staff being friendlier would have made a big difference!
