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.

    I loved this hostel so much. It felt like I was living on campus of a university. It was in great location, also not too far from Salem. The staff was amazing and caring. I felt safe and secured.

    Staff had all the answers to the questions but they just seemed bothered to be there. I’m sure they are tired of having to repeat the same answers every day and go through the same motions every day and it shows.

    My favourite hostel so far! I stayed here about 5 years ago and the hostel has kept its standards. It is very clean and has more amenities than other hostels at the same price. What I like the most is the abundance of power points and hooks. The only minor concern was that the water pump sounds from the bathroom are a bit noisy at night.

    The staff confused my last name with other guest who has to pay twice more money than mine, yet they still were not convinced that I booked a cheaper room. I repeated my booking itinerary, and one of the staff said, 'We're not a Hostelworld, chill out!' Would you not try to convince others when you're about to get ripped off by the stupid mistake?Some other issues I have found was that key card was not working properly so I was stuck outside and doors were far too heavy. Water pressure was low.

    The room smelled bad and was musty. The shower water pressure was weak. However, the bed was very comfortable. All in all, I’m surprised the hostel is rated as high as it is.
