  • It might be an idea to reserve rooms for people with respiration, allergy and related problems who prefer or have to sleep with windows open.

  • When I tried to call the hostel to confirm my registration(as was listed as a requirement since I had reserved with paypal), the guy who I spoke to seemed rather ornery. However, once there, everyone was nothing but nice, and it had a wonderful atmosphere that was just what I needed when visiting Boston. I even got a discount for offering to pay with cash.

  • I loved it at backpackers. Ray and Chris and all the other guys helped me when I got questions and we had a good time in the pub watching football.

  • The biggest problem with this hostel is its location. It's true that they offer a shuttle to the nearest subway station every 30 minutes, but I'd be better if it was closer to downtown Boston. Anyway, the place is clean, and beds were quite comfortable.

  • The staff was very friendly, helpful and the atmosphere was really warm. The location is actually relatively far from metro station but they ride you to the hostel and back any time you need, thats very cool.

  • It is a very nice place to stay. The location is not that perfect. But there is a shuttle can drop you off at the metro station. I had two nice nights there. And the breakfast is very good, too.
