Backpackers Hostel & Pub
If an over-crowded, loud and hectic atmosphere is your preference, the Backpackers Hostel will not be for you.
Our entire staff strives to provide a relaxing, comfortable and safe atmosphere while you tour the most beautiful and historic city in America: Boston, Massachusetts.
Our computer room is comfortable and calm, our pub cosy and relaxing, and our dormitory rooms spacious and clean. In addition, we offer free Wi-Fi and free telephone calls to anywhere in the USA.
Begin your morning with complimentary coffee or tea before you board our free shuttle to Wellington Station, just four subway stops from Central Boston.
If you prefer to get some exercise and walk to the subway, there is a painted orange line running from the front door of Backpackers to Wellington Station. This walk takes about 15 minutes.
Backpackers Hostel is located on the Orange Line at Wellington Station, the premier line on the Boston Metro System. The Orange Line provides the most direct access to the popular tourist attractions in Boston, including the famous North End and Boston Garden (at North Station); Faneuil Hall Marketplace and Cheers Pub at Quincy Market (Haymarket Station); The New England Aquarium and Whale Watching Tours (State); The Freedom Trail and Boston Common (Downtown Crossing); Boston's Chinatown neighbourhood and business district; Copley Square, Newbury Street, and Boston Public Library (Back Bay); Boston Symphony, Northeastern University and the New England Conservatory of Music (Mass Ave); The Museum of Fine Arts and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum (Ruggles station); and the Samuel Adams Brewery at Stony Brook station.
If Harvard University and MIT are on your itinerary, both destinations are easily accessible by public transportation or car to Cambridge, MA.
Once again, our focus is to provide a safe, comfortable and relaxing setting for all our guests after they tour the bustling and busy city of Boston.
We look forward to your arrival.
