Get to Know HI Boston

Don’t let Boston’s rich history make you think this city is frozen in Revolutionary time. Boston is a bustling, modern metropolis and HI Boston hostel is at the center of it all. This modern hostel is close to Boston Common and the Freedom Trail, a metro ride from world-renowned universities like Harvard and M.I.T., and a short walk from the famed Boston Public Library, Fenway Park, and Faneuil Hall. Take one of our free neighborhood, brewery, or college campus tours to learn more about this amazing city than you will in any guidebook.

Our dorm beds have everything you need to relax and recharge for long days of sightseeing, and our private rooms are comfy and cozy. But you won’t be able to resist hanging out in our common areas, too, where you’ll meet plenty of other travelers from around the world.
