Hostelworld says

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.
