  • Not what I expected. Most of the people staying there are not backpackers, mostly permanent residents with poor hygiene. Personal is really nice. Breakfast is just coffee or tea and toast but it was ok. On my last night they changed me to a mixed room even though I had made a reservation for a female only bedroom.

  • The owner, Wayne, is an awesome individual and all of his staff live to those same standards. The shuttle service can't be beat and is a better value than you'll find at most full-scale hotels. Looking forward to visiting again the next time I'm in Boston!

  • Rooms could have used some touch ups and some minor fixes. No lockers in the room sucks, it's better in the rooms instead of the halls. Also found it extremely loud very late at night some nights. Loved the free shuttle to and from the train, and the free parking was great.

    Lockers are more secure in the hallway as we have security cameras pointed at them.

  • The staff is very friendly and always offers help. The shuttle to Wellington Station is very handy as it enables fast access to the T-Line and thus to Boston. The facility is average in terms of condition. The beds are nothing special. However, the offer a little kitchen including microwave so you're able to cook if you want to. Also there's a TV open to anyone that'd like to watch. The breakfast is hardly a breakfast. It's basically toast with butter, strawberry jam and peanut butter. Still OK

    The breakfast is exactly what we advertise, just something quick and easy so you can get out and enjoy the sights of Boston. There are several breakfast restaurants nearby if you wish to have steak and eggs, or lobster tail and champagne, but we are a hostel and we try to keep the costs reasonable in an expensive city like Boston. If you want steak and lobster, stay at the Ritz Carlton next visit.
