Get to Know HI Friendly Crossways hostel
HI Friendly Crossways is the longest continually operating youth hostel in the US. Just 30 miles northwest of Boston and Harvard Square in Cambridge, and easily accessible by train, this quiet country Boston-area hostel is only 20 minutes from Thoreau’s Walden Pond, national historical parks in Lowell and Concord, and the Fruitlands Museums.
HI Friendly Crossways gives you access to great hiking, canoeing, biking, and skiing in the surrounding area. We’re also a great jumping-off point for day trips to Salem, Plymouth, Sturbridge, and Boston for history, maritime museums, “witches,” whale watching, and more.
