Property Description

We are a small, cosy hostel style short term rental accommodations. We call ourselves 'Boston Homestel' because we provide a home for travellers and since we're small, we'll feel like a community. Home, hostel, and community is our motto, and we strive to be the friendliest place in Boston to relax and enjoy the city with other travellers. We offer private rooms and manageable dorm rooms of just 4, 3 or 2 people in mixed and female-only dorms. Your experience with us will be personal, unlike larger hostels. We'll know you by first name, even if you only stay 1 night. We like to have fun, but this is not a party house, so we ask our guests to be mature and responsible.

We are located near the Boston train red line and the city centre is 3 stops from us. We're also located walking distance to the South Boston beach. Yes! The beach is swimmable, you wouldn't expect that in the city but it does exist! Our property is located on a quiet residential street, but a short distance to the main street and the public metro (the T, as it's called in Boston). We're near a swimmable beach in South Boston and Vietnamese town.

We offer private rooms and manageable dorm rooms of just 4, 3 or 2 people in mixed and female-only dorms. Your experience with us will be personal, unlike larger hostels. We provide linens, a small blanket and a pillow. Lockers available. Towels available upon request(2USD) and earplugs(1usd). Self check in available. Microwave and refrigerator available.

Don’t get lured by the price. Book other Hotels ahead of time and you can get an even better rate. They turn an old building into a hostel with min renovation. I booked a 4-bed room and I am sleeping just next to others head. No place for your luggage and there’s only one cheap IKEA small table for 4 people. Wall is super thin that you can hear every conversation. 2 out of 3 bathrooms I used doesn’t have a functional door lock. The staff is super rude.

Unfortunately, this is my first poor review of a hostel. The building needs a thorough deep clean & a lot of maintenance. The beds were the worst I've slept in; climbing onto the top bunk creates an earthquake for the person below, not to mention the absolutely HORRIBLE squeaking. It's clear the owner does not care about the paying customer's experience, just making a quick buck! The staff was amazing & made the stay better... but read the other low-star reviews & don't stay here.

Dorm rooms are really small (not more than 10 sq m) for 6 people. There’s no storage space in the room, so everyone’s belongings are scattered all over the place. The location is great though, and the staff is friendly.
