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.

    My Son and I stayed in a 4 person mixed deluxe dorm. The room was clean and well ventilated. Our roommates were very respectful and quiet. The bathrooms were pretty clean - Of course there was the occasional dirty hairy shower, but nothing I couldn’t clean myself. I am especially grateful for Aaron, a wonderful employee, who gave us many recommendations and directions and impressed me with me hospitality. Great location & central to every thing.

    Very good hostel with an amazing location! Big common room, the kitchen could be bigger according to room numbers. Rooms are really nice and spacious. Very pricy but the only option in downtown Boston.
