HI Boston, Boston
Well. Very surprised with the cost of room and lack of regular amenities. No phone no refrigerator so had to toss leftover meals. Poor service as far as room is concerned.

Super hostel
Very reasonably priced in a very nice area. Roommates and noise in the dorms can be unpredictable. Breakfast and common areas great for networking!

Great place in bustling Boston!
This was a very cool building with lots of planned social events and a relaxed and friendly vibe. It's easy to get around downtown Boston from here, and the service is top-notch. I would definitely stay here again!

Great stay in a private room
Great stay in a private room. The amenities of this hostel ate wonderful including the gorgoued and warm lobby with fireplace, free wifi, daily activities and lots of fun spaced to gather including billiards & a movie room. Breakfast was nothing special but got us out the door without an empty belly.
