  • Very clean. Beds are comfortable. Pay parking available nearby. Great value for the price. Even after paying for parking it was much cheaper than an hotel (and you have more space to more around than in a hotel). Cozy fireplace in the lobby. Very secure-card swipe required to get into hostel, then to elevator area, and again into room. Varied fun activities scheduled each day. Breakfast not great, but adequate and free. Wifi works well. Neighborhood seems fine. Close to the T. Would stay again.

  • The location is perfect. You're right next to Chinatown and other neighboring restaurants, stores, etc. The facilities are clean and constantly kept clean. The employees and staff are nice and extremely helpful. I had such a positive experience in this hostel, given this was my first time staying in a hostel. I would highly recommended HI Boston. You definitely get what you pay for. Rooms were spacious and everything was simply great. Super satisfied with my stay!

  • I think the could sell calling because some people come from abroad and don't have phone Carrier to call family in the country they left.

  • This is a great hostel! Very friendly and accommodating staff. Very close to many attractions and subway stations. It is located in Chinatown so there are a lot of great places to eat. I enjoyed my stay. I wish I could have stayed longer but there is a 2 week/calendar year policy, so if you need to stay in Boston for longer then two weeks then this hostel isn't for you.

  • I really enjoyed my stay at HI Boston. The staff were extremely helpful when I had any queries and were able to recommend fun activities for myself to do whilst staying in Boston. The activities arranged everyday or night were an excellent way of getting people to engage and go out together - the yoga class was brilliant!

  • I have never stayed in a hostel that was this organized and well designed for the backpacker. However, I felt that even though the staff is really kind and the place promotes mingling activities, because of its size, it lacks in the hostel atmosphere of sharing. A hostel with a bit of a hotel feel.
