    I love this hostel and stay here frequently. The only complaint I would have is having to make your own bed which is not easy when you arrive late and have a top bunk bed.

    One of my fave hostels. The location can’t be beat. You are right in Chinatown for all you eating needs and walking distance to South Station. Dining space is spacious and inviting. The kitchen is open plan so you can chat with others sitting down as you are preparing food. Living space is comfortable and relaxing. The bunk beds are nicely partitioned for privacy. Top bunk squeaks but loved the squishy supportive pillows. And all the bathrooms are PRIVATE! No dorm bathrooms!

    This is an excellent hostel. My favorite thing about it was the staff and location. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating and it’s located in Chinatown, within walking distance of amazing food and sites. Highly recommend this place. Very clean and affordable.

    Everything really is great about this hostel EXCEPT the force of the doors when they close. Oh god each door slams shut and really ruins the overall experience at the hostel. To management, I’m sure there are solutions to make the doors quieter when closing. Please look into it

    An excellent hostel, quite possibly the best I’ve ever seen in the US. Lots of room, excellent restrooms, and bed was extremely comfortable. Not much atmosphere atm, but I blame that on COVID and it being a Wednesday. Would definitely go back One thing: the beds would be so much better with privacy curtains

    I am satisfied with my stay at the HI Hostel. Very good location with access to food and the subway nearby. HI Hostel is loud with concrete floors, and automatic slamming doors. Facility was clean, and neat, well maintained. Linens were fresh and new. Restrooms were also clean. I did not know any of my 3 roommates in my 4-bed dorm style room. Two were heavy snorers (I used my ear plugs). The others stared at their phones in the dark, making it not dark (I used my blindfold to make it dark).

    Great location, great staff. I just think they should be more strict with the COVID-19 safety. I never saw any surface being desinfected and they never asked me for a vaccination card or a negative test. This is a big concern for me, since I slept on the same room with other 3 people, no windows opened.

    This was a nice hostel but could use some customer service work and cleaning. I arrived around 8-9pm on 10/02/21; tired from my flight. Security is well set up as you need a key card, or someone needs to "buzz" you in, to get into the bldg. There were (2) two team members that "greeted" me at check-in. However, Ashley I believe her name was, was sadly unkind and made me feel unwelcomed. Overall, facilities are nice and female dorms are nice only wish they had privacy curtains on the bed.
