We like that this hostel is actively environmentally friendly.

    HI was a great hostel! The staff were so helpful and kind - I mentioned to the staff my room was cold, they immediately gave me another blanket and turned up the heat. They were very accommodating. The room and bathrooms were clean. The hostel is in a great location - easy access to the Commons and train. I felt safe walking at night as a solo female. No breakfast is being served at this time due to COVID, but Dunkin’ Donuts is just down the street.

    Great place. Very clean and super well organized. Everything you could possibly need - bed linens, personal locker in your room, clean bathrooms, hot-water showers, huge kitchen area with everything you'd need to prepare your own meals and clean afterwards, even a pool table. Great location just blocks from the expensive hotels and the public gardens. I would definitely stay there again.

    This place has everything you could ask for in a hostel: great price in a central location. The beds and rooms are comfortable. They even have green energy reminders to help reduce shower times or to encourage the stairs over the elevator. I thought that was a nice touch.

    A decent hostel in the Chinatown area. Room was less spacious than others I’ve had but comfortable with temperature control. Staff are friendly and the option to buy drinks/snacks at the counter is helpful. Would recommend for a few days

    During by 3 night stay, the place was almost always clean. Helpful staff. Sometimes the lower bunk felt very hot at night, other times it was the opposite - this did mess with my sleep. Overall, it was a cozy stay!

    Bathrooms were shared and cleaned daily, they also have bath mats for the floor and foam soap for the shower. Not always super clean (you share with 6 other people). One of the door locks for the bathroom was broken. This location is in an older building and our thermostat was broken (could either be turned off or max heat [78F]). Can open the window a little bit. Has luggage storage for $3. Located right in Chinatown and close to transit. Very safe security. Hope this helps with your planning!

    Well set up building in the heart of Chinatown.floor plans make sense and facilities are clean. I only wish group activities are open but Covid killed that dream.
