From world-renowned theater productions at The Charles Playhouse to authentic soup dumplings in Chinatown, HI Boston hostel is just steps from some of the city’s most exciting cultural destinations. History buffs will love our free Freedom Trail and Harvard tours and sports lovers will want to be first in line for our free Fenway Park tour. For outdoor enthusiasts, Boston Common is right around the corner and Boston’s Emerald Necklace park system offers trails through the heart of the city that will make you feel like you are miles away from a bustling urban center.

During spring, summer and fall, the weather in Boston is unbeatable. Stroll along the Charles River and watch the crew teams as they glide across the water. Ride the inner harbor ferry between Long Wharf and Charlestown. The ride is free with a 1- or 7-day transit pass and you get the best view of downtown Boston from the harbor.

Settle into one of our comfy lobby chairs and enjoy a drink from our cafe - a great place to hang out and meet fellow travelers. Take advantage of our free breakfast, game room and the many free in-hostel activities we offer like yoga, cornhole tournaments or mixers. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is always ready to give you tips on where to get the best lobster roll or the quickest way to Cambridge - we want you to enjoy Boston as we do, like a local.
