Although we are just outside the downtown Boston city limits, (4 subway stops from Haymarket), the newly renovated Backpackers Hostel more than makes up for that with, not just superior guest services, but with the most exceptional guest services in the hostel business. All our staff are trained to do whatever it takes to make sure that you have the absolute best experience we can provide, while you visit one of the most historic and interesting cities in all of America. We appreciate your business and we want to prove it to you.

If you are taking your car to Boston, Backpackers Hostel is the ONLY hostel you would want to stay at. We are located 3 miles from Central Boston and you will not have to deal with any of the gridlock traffic that hampers Central Boston. This is a HUGE advantage and will make your visit more enjoyable. TRAFFIC can ruin everything. Also our PARKING $5. Park your car and use our famous SHUTTLE SERVICE for the rest of your visit, without any worries.

If you are using a GPS to find Backpackers, be sure to enter our correct address: 13 School Street Everett MA 02149.

Begin your morning with complimentary coffee or tea in our breakfast nook before you board our FREE SHUTTLE SERVICE to Wellington Station, just 4 stops from central Boston.
If you prefer to get some exercise and walk to the subway, there is a painted ORANGE LINE from our front door to Wellington Station. This walk will take about 15 minutes.
