  • 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.

  • Very nice Hostel with very friendly staff, especially Ray was very helpful and he's always in a good mood. It seems like it's a long way from the city centre, but it's only 3-4 metro stops and they have shuttle which will pick you up from the station, excellent service!

  • Great place to stay definitely ! The staff is very nice and also very convenient , they pick up and drop off for free at the subway station. There is a pub and a pool table with good vibes. I recommand it for sure !

  • I had a car and appreciated the parking provided. They ran the shuttle on a regular schedule, so it was ok for those without a vehicle.
