Property Description

Stay in downtown Boston aboard the schooner LIBERTY CLIPPER on our Tall Ship Overnights. A unique experience. Enjoy the best rates in town, while staying in the historic waterfront district of Boston, a block from the North End and Faneuil Hall / Quincy Market.

You'll stay on a working tall ship in one of our cabins. We only make a few cabins available each day and they go quickly. All cabins on the Liberty Clipper (available June through mid September) are double-bunk style and feature a skylight, hot/cold water running sink and are paneled in yellow pine to provide an authentic tall ship experience. Our six cabins share three heads (bathrooms) and three showers which are spaced evenly throughout the ship.

Linens and towels are provided .

We are a working schooner, so while the ship is out sailing, you'll have your day free to explore the city ashore (unless you sign up for the harbor cruise that's out sailing at that time). Most days the ship is out sailing from 10:30 AM to 8:00 PM, however, some days may start earlier or go later with either private charters or special events.

Checkout is by 10 AM each day.

PLEASE NOTE: Our published rates do not include taxes. The Boston Hotel Tax will be added to the cost of your reservation when the Liberty completes your booking.

After you book your reservation through Hostel World, The Liberty Fleet will finalize your reservation and email you a receipt for your completed booking. Please note that after you complete your booking through Liberty Fleet, your Tall Ship Overnights reservation becomes non-refundable.

Access to the vessel: The LIBERTY CLIPPER is a working ship that regularly conduct both public and private sailing events in Boston Harbor. You will not have access to your cabin (room) aboard the ship while a trip is in progress. If the ship is hosting a public sailing event, you may book a ticket for that cruise and stay aboard for the sail (30% discount available excluding black-out dates and special events). In the event of a private charter or if you do not purchase a ticket for a public sail, you will need to stay ashore during the cruise. When you check-in we will provide you with the ship's schedule for the day. The ship typically offers three two-hour sails from 10:30AM until 8:00pm each day, however, our schedule may start earlier or go later and is subject to change.

Check-In time: You may check in anytime between 10:00am and 5:00pm at the Liberty Fleet Office at 67 Long Wharf. Please do NOT proceed directly to the vessel as you must receive instructions at the office prior to boarding. You may leave your bags at the ship's office upon check-in and a crew-member will bring them to your cabin for you. NOTE: We cannot accommodate late check-ins. If you cannot arrive before 5pm on your check-in day, you will not be able to stay on the ship that night, please contact us before you book if you have any questions on this policy.

Check-Out time: Check out time will be 10:00am and may be sooner in the event of a scheduled public sail or private charter.

Refund/Rescheduling Policy: Non-Refundable, cannot be rescheduled. Once purchased, reservations cannot be refunded and cannot be rescheduled. You space has been guaranteed.

Cancellation by Company: Schooner Liberty Clipper, Inc. reserves the right to cancel any booking in the event of a private charter. If the Company cancels your booking for a private charter only, you may reschedule to another comparable time or receive a refund.

Other policies: Children: Minimum age for lodging aboard the Liberty Clipper is 8 years old. Parents must accompany children at all times while aboard the vessel. Rain or Shine: You may not cancel your reservation for inclement weather. View House Rules

    One of the more unique hosteling experiences in the US! Fantastic location right beside the aquarium, comfortable bunks and great outdoor space. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Just know that since it's a working boat, your hours of access are incredibly limited. Out by 9:30AM everyday, return after 8:30PM on Friday, and 10:30PM on Saturday. Luckily there's so much to do in Boston & the surrounding area, it's easy to fill up your day. Would recommend for those not needing many amenities.

    It was an interesting place to stay. Very convenient to the site of Boston. The room was very small, but that is to be expected. I wish I had a chance to go on a daily, but with the weather and schedules it did work out.

    The shower was in the bathroom, which was gross so we didn't use it. The door to the rooms doesn't lock and the window above us was open. This just didn't feel very secure. The ship smelled like the bathroom. There was a sink in our room which was nice. Staff was super kind and friendly! I would probably stay again - but would've liked to know these details. Also - it's a bit overpriced for how tiny & cramped the rooms are.

    We expected small arrangements but it was so overly hot in the cabins. Kind of clean. The lady that was men's to be the kings in charge that night never even acknowledged us. A tip envelope was left on the beds. Why they were hoping for tips we dont know.

    Arrived at 5:15, offices were shut with no method of contact. Shouldn't be advertised on the site as it's not a hostel, rather an overnight experience.

    I booked this room on . I emailed the property on XXX to ask about parking for the long weekend and I was told by the property that I could park across the street. Upon arriving to property on Sunday Sept 2, I was informed that the boat was at a race in Gloucester for a race and would not be available. Website was emailed but the emails were auto rejected. Since I had no accomodations, I had to go to the nearby Marriot at $433 US/per night, which was not affordable. Please contact me.
