Their new location was open just a few months before we arrived and I have to say it was one of the most amazing hostels I have stayed at. The new hostel is purpose built and has to be one of the leading hostels in the US currently and if you are staying in Boston for an extended period I can certainly recommend this place.

The rooms are clean, the beds are modern with lockers, plenty of powerpoints and shelves to store your gear next to your bed. You can even have your electronics plugged in charging locked away safe in your locker.

There are plenty of great reasons to stay in this Boston hostel including great location, great facilities, good free breakfast and plenty of daily activities. So next time you are in Boston I can stand by this hostel as the best place you can stay.
