"I'm very content with the clean room and nice atmosphere here . all my roommate and I did not expected so good for the room. Definitely will try next time."

"Good location (very easy to get to, good transport network, close walking distance to Boston Common and the Waterfront). Fair breakfast. Kitchen facilities are decent (you don't even have to wash your own dishes)."

I will be back again for sure!"

Bed and the beddings were extremely clean and neat
Staffs were friendly and breakfast was also good
Location was perfect near the starting point of the freedom trail (takes about 5 minutes to walk)
"Good position, the subway station is just 2 minutes away, close to restaurants, shops, bars, staff is nice and super kind, clean room and bathrooms, everything is modern and new, and even if there's 6 people rooms you can still have your own privacy, also the breakfast was good, really worth the stay, I'll definitely go back!"

"Clean and good location."
"Good hostel in central location - up to usual high standards for HI"
"Staff were friendly and helpful. Accommodations were clean and friendly. The room was affordable and HI's rules concerning quiet hours and respect for all made for a pleasant stay.

"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. I really enjoyed my stay and thought that the price was really good for what I got. I especially liked how there was a free breakfast included!"
"The hostel is really well organized, secure and clean. The breakfast is simple but with good options. The sheets and towels really clean. The rooms are well organized and have a good space. Each guest has their own locker ( just needed a padlock) and also a light for each bed. Great cost benefit."
"The staff at the hostel was really nice! I felt really well taken care of!! The facilities were consistently clean and I like how the bathrooms were individual! 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!!"
"Friendly staffs, convenient location"

"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. Great staff, good location and cheap yet comfortable place to stay. Most specially the luggage storage. I get to walk around the city longer because of that!"
". 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."

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."

"I loved that it was close to everything I wanted to go to."

"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!"

"This is the best hostel I have ever stayed in. Having individual bathrooms is a real bonus for me. The activities provided were excellent and it was a friendly place. The rooms were extremely comfortable and safe."
"I was blown away at the amenities!"
"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."

"It's a great hostel! The room and facilities were clean and it has an open kitchen with basic supplies like oil, vinegar and spices.
The breakfast was ok, but nothing special. Some days Aaron, the tour guide, showed up for breakfast and gave us tips what to visit. That was great!"

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.

"Good breakfast, nice facilities. Bed was ready to sleep in, no need to put on the bed linen :)."
"This hostel was perfect for a family with 5 teenagers. It's more like a small boutique hotel. Everything is designed around teenagers- nooks for gaming, pool table, bean bags, printer,kitchen for the constant snacks, laundry room upstair, coffee shop downstairs, pizza and Chinese next door. When you finished cooking, you just put your pots and utensils in a crate-no holiday potwashing"
