Positive Reviews

Convenient central location

Guests loved being within walking distance of stops on three T lines for easy access to the heart of downtown and wider exploration of the city. Boston Common was a five-minute walk away and reviewers also liked the wide choice of nearby dining options including Chinatown.

Friendly staff and chance to meet other travelers

Most reviewers paid tribute to the personnel, describing them as friendly and helpful with good local knowledge. However, a few reviewers thought complaint handling could have been better. Many guests appreciated being offered a timetable of activities and events as an inexpensive way to see the city and a good way of meeting others. The hostel was particularly popular with a younger crowd, often international travelers on a budget.

Good value option for Boston on a budget

Guests often found the rates to be competitive for Boston, although some said prices were on the high side for hostel accommodation. Nonetheless, many reviewers thought they got decent value for money because facilities and cleanliness were reportedly good. The shared kitchen was reportedly well-equipped and there were plenty of showers at this modern hostel. Guests also liked the free breakfast, even if it could get a little busy.

Negative Reviews

Beds too small for some

If you're a taller person, as some reviewers were, you might find some of the beds a bit shorter than you're used to.

Patchy Wi-Fi in rooms

Occasionally, reviewers reported difficulties connecting to the free Wi-Fi network in some rooms.

Sharing a dorm not always quiet

Some critics observed that it could get noisy in the dorms when other guests were coming and going. This wasn't helped by claims of occasionally squeaky beds. Moreover, some light sleepers reported being able to hear street noise from certain rooms.
