  • 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!

  • Enjoyed my time here! Air conditioning is poor - gets very hot. Expect to sweat. But I'd stay there again.

  • Everything was extraordinary. Very nice and helpful staff, great location and nice rooms. A bit expensive, but so are all hostels in Boston, especially around when the semester starts. The hostel had a lot of organized activities, including bar crawls, comedy night and tours of Harvard and MIT, which was very nice. Breakfast was included and excellent. Great place. One night I had to go to another Hostel, and the difference between the hostels were very large, even though the cost was same.
