Hello. HI boston is a high hostel in a good location (chinatown). Well done inside with most of the things a turist may need. Breakfast is awesome and very crowded in the morning. Tks for all.
Room and bathroom doors need a stronger arm in order to avoid noise when the doors close. Loockers could be a bit bigger. I payed a good price and I cannot believe that I got charged to leave my bag in a storage once I checked out. Tks
Location and staff were good
Allowing late arrivals creates an offensive atmosphere for other guests sleeping, I was awoken after 11pm from a guest entering my room, making noise, walking around with a flashlight, and at 5am I was awoken again by the same person checking out.
I knew the HI Boston was right smack downtown. I loved being at close proximity of the Theatre district, Chinatown, the Park and Financial district. Commuter stations are within a few minutes walking distance and are easily accessible with trolley luggage or light back packs and bags. Even if it was freezing, a short walk anywhere was perfect to get your foodie or entertainment & sightseeing fix. The 2 mile self-guided historic walk means you could probably head out right after a quick breakfast get a view of the surroundings and then come back for a part 2 breakfast and deep dive into your chosen places.
I expected breakfast to be available early, but several items are brought out at a later time. Juice dispenser needs time to load or prep, the toasters need to be set up, as do the cereals and fruit etc. -- so if you are expecting to have an early start, be prepared to make do with whatever is already set out. Perhaps explore an option for early start breakfast bags to go?
The breakfast is pretty good.
I woke up my first night with red spots on my face. Not sure what it was but the spots stayed there for a long time. They just started to disappear now that I am back home. The sheets had to be changed. It only happened the first night not any other night.
the location, it was close to downtown and could walk everywhere
it was too expensive to stay there
