  • Everything is really well thought out in terms of what travellers need - washing machines, hairdryers, condiments and spices in the kitchen etc. I was also quite impressed with the breakfast! It's easy to find this place, as long as you know that Kneeland Street continues as Stuart Street. If you arrive by bus, you turn left at the bus station door, then right onto Kneeland Street, from there it's less than a 10-minute walk.

  • Great hostel in a great location. Very close walk to the subways/trains, but also walking distance to everything in the city proper. Only about a 15 minute walk to the North End. Very clean and updated hostel. Zero complaints.

  • This may not be important for international visitors, but as an American guest, I loved the fact that I could eat cheaply at all the fantastic Chinese and Vietnamese restaurants without even leaving the neighborhood! Well-equipped in terms of bathrooms: it was all private rooms (toilet, sink, and shower), which you'd think would cause queuing, but it wasn't a problem. A little pricey, but not surprising; Chinatown is considered downtown Boston, and it's not cheap.

  • Boston HI is a gem, great location, events are good, facilities not bad, bed is not the most comfortable tho. The best part of here was their customer specialist - Aaron, who has so much knowledge about the Boston area and countless suggestions for sightseeing. They asked for $3/24h luggage storage regardless that you are before/after check-in/out, which is the most expensive among all the hostels I stayed.

  • A very nice, modern and clean hostel. I love the rooms there. Big lockers and not too many beds. Also only the people sharing the room with you have access to it via keycard. The showers were very clean. The included breakfast was very delicious too! Make sure you are there early enough because the staff is fast and it will be put away at 10:01. All in all you get a perfect value for your money. Highly recommended! So are all the HI Hostels!
