"Good hostel in central location - up to usual high standards for HI"
"I stayed the night after the Boston marathon, so the city was packed full and all the hotel prices were jacked way up. The hostel was much cheaper and so I booked it.

Each bathroom area had a private toilet, sink, and shower - this is such a luxury for a hostel!! The six person room was set up nice and each bed had a small private space and an individual light! The beds were also quite comfortable for a hostel and the sheets were nice and clean!! It was an easy walk from the heart of downtown! Breakfast was also yummy!!"

". Towels were not clean but the staff was nice enough to give me a fresh one in under 5 minutes of talking to me. The beds were clean and well prepared for me on arrival. The lighting is also great nice for pictures as well. However the best part of the hotel is how clean the cleaners kept the facility especially the rooms."
"Very clean and comfortable, great location for all the sights. The breakfast is basic but a nice addition! Very near to South Station."
"I love the location itself as I didn't have a hard time looking for a place to dine out. I even got the chance to check in early as the room has been ready.

The Kitchen and dinning area is spacious and has ample space to have a peaceful meal. Location was quite central with about 200m walk to either the Chinatown or Boylston subway stations. I salute the helpfulness of Aaron, who was very patient and helpful to enlighten on the various sights within Boston city and neighbouring areas."

"It was clean. The staff was really nice and they let me check-in earlier. Location is central and you can walk to the subway, to most stores and to the harbor. "
"The staff was great; friendly, helpful, professional. Whatever question I had, they had the answer! The location is right next to Chinatown and Boston Common; didn't have to walk far to get whereever you needed to go--close to the red, green and orange lines for the T. There's an incredible Chinese restaurant on the same block as the hostel, the Dumpling Cafe. The beds are comfortable, the bathroom/showers clean, the towels thick and comfy. Very nice place. Security was tight which is good for that area of town."

"I stayed here before and was very pleased with the facilities and the business values as well as the staff of course. Everything is well planned out and easy to navigate in a great social atmosphere. Activities are varied and organic. This is the sort of hostel that you dream about, a first class establishment in the bustle of Chinatown where you can experience contact with the whole world and expand your vistas. Haven't enjoyed a hostel stay more since the Flying Pig Uptown in Amsterdam. This trip my flight was canceled due to a blizzard (thank you to the staff for helping me extend my stay at 2am) and I still managed to have some of the best days of my life. HI Boston lives up to its mission statement!"

"Everything was superb! The location is amazing (in the heart of theater district, and within a short walk to most of Boston's tourist attractions, including the Boston Common, the public garden, Boylston Street, Prudential Center, Washington Street and downtown). Concerning transportation, the hostel is a mere 15-min walk from South Station (train/subway station), but to catch the subway there's an orange line station even closer, which is just accross the street at the grounds of Tufts Medical Center and the "floating hospital"; the complimentary continental breakfast has a good assortment of dishes; the hostel staff is amazing, especially the ones at front desk - they do make you feel at home; bathroons/toilets are extremely clean; the 6-bed rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable; temperature control is great - I did feel comfortable inside the building."

"The best hostel I have ever stayed at. Beds and bed linen are of high quality as well as the interior and facilities. Cleanliness is outstanding. The bathrooms are lockable so you have the bathroom basically for yourself-a huge difference to other hostels.
Extremely welcoming Hostel staff, especially Aaron, who takes guest for guided trips around Boston. I admired the passion of the staff in terms of hospitality and guest relations. You can lock your stuff after checking out. The location is excellent and in walking district to many sightseeing spots. Definitely recommend to go there!"

The beds were pretty comfy and the shared facilities were nice, the free WiFi was good. however for a hostel this place is very overpriced and I think as secure storage is advertised on your website the locks for the lockers should be provided free of charge."
"Very nice and Clean Hostel. Personal was super helpful and smiley all the time.

"The location was so good.
Train station, park, restaurant, and CVS, everything is close."
"Clean, excellent location, modern rooms (each bed has an individual shelf and nightlight), great wifi even in the rooms."
"The staff were genuinely friendly - no one seemed bitter about being at work, or anything. The general maid service and what was provided with cost of rent surpassed my expectations. The atmosphere was pleasant and conducive to socializing and getting random duties accomplished. The kitchen was always clean and the bathrooms were kept in very nice shape. Tons of amenities - even free cookies!
The location was great, but can be a little overwhelming. It is in a very busy part of town and someone unused to that level of urban immediacy might need some time to acclimate. Beyond that, the location was excellent. In 48 hours I walked the whole length of Boston and was largely able to do that because of how centrally located the facility is. There is food, shopping/grocery, and entertainment all immediately outside the building with at least 3 different train lines within walking distance including the semi-free shuttle service from the airport."

The place felt very warm and welcoming upon arrival-greeted immediately by friendly staff. Eager to help me find late night grub in walking distance, and securing a morning Uber driver to the airport the following day. Ended up in a room of 6 bunks.

"We stayed 3 nights at the HI Boston Hostel. The room was great – it had bunk beds with a lower twin bed, and upper single bunk. The room also had a desk, and a great shower. When we first arrived at 3:30 pm, our room wasn’t ready (we were surprised)......the fellow at the counter told us the room should be ready by about 4 pm….At 4 pm, I checked again at the counter and the person called housekeeping and said it still wasn’t ready but offered luggage storage and so we took that, left our bags and went out for a walk to Boston Common….we came back after dinner and checked in no problem. The Hostel offers continental breakfast –coffee, juices, cereal (including granola), bagels, bread/toast. The hostel was clean, and had lots of facilities and sitting areas. Staff were very nice. Location is great, only a couple blocks to Boston Common, and we walked to the Hostel from the Amtrac South Station. Close to most sites and to the subway (green Boyston station is about 2 blocks away and connects to others). Wifi was somewhat spotty, and bit slower than we’d normally expect. We’d stay at the Hostel again if in Boston."

Location right near Chinatown train, worked great for my needs."
"This Hostel really thought of everything. From the cubbies and outlets near the bed to the schedule each day with cool free activities for travelers. It is well put together. Plus the place is brand new! I went on a pub crawl my first night there put on by the Hostel and met some awesome people I then explored Boston with!

A 20 minute ride on the Metro from Logan, a 15 minute walk up to the Garden through Boston Common, and then the following morning a quick 5 minute walk to Copley Station for the Express Bus back to Logan. I would've paid more for this kind of convenience, security and comfort"
