I arrived here after a sleepless overnight flight, only to be given a very rude greeting by the staff. There was a small queue, which I expected, but to be spoken to in a short and aggressive manner was not expected.
Once that was over...More
I arrived quite later in the evening around 10 pm for check-in, but I definitely felt welcome by the chill, hip atmosphere once I stepped in. Luis helped me check in, he asked me where I'm from and flaunted a couple of Korean expressions; I...More
This would have to be one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. They have thought about everything in regards to ammenities and everything is accessible and convenient in terms of location. I love that you have a little charging station and light...More

Visited HI Boston twice now - a really top-notch hostel. Made the rest of our budget trip feel especially so! Only thing is you have to have a weird induction from the reception staff, even if you've spent your entire time staying in HIs... Anyway,...More
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
