    Great location and security

    Very safe and convent location. Some desk staff were friendly and helpful. One was not. He acted aloof or bothered. Once we went down to ask a question and he just keep talking to a man and it didn’t seem related to hotel plu, he never made eye contact with us (two older women) or said “I will be with you soon” or anything. We finally just left. Also I found a dirty fork under the ironing board cover.

    Great location and good price

    The staff at HI Boston hostel were very friendly and accommodating. It's located at the edge of Chinatown and just a couple of blocks from the Boston common so it's a good location. Plus you can take the free silver line bus from the airport and get off at at South station and walk just a few minutes to the hostel.
