HI - Boston


The hostel is in downtown Boston, in the Fenway area which boasts some of the best museums and nightlife in the city.

Dorms $27.99+, Private $99.99+

HI-Boston is in the Chinatown / Theater District area, which includes some of the best entertainment the city has to offer. The Charles Playhouse is at our doorstep where you can see the Blue Man Group or Sheer Madness.

In a few short minutes you can walk around to Boston Common (see a Pops concert if you can!) and get to the famous Freedom Trail. This is the best way to see the sights that played a part in the American Revolution. Also see Quincy Market with its food stalls and free entertainment!

Guests can enjoy daily programs, lectures, films, and workshops at the hostel. We also have board games, a pool table and Wii games for use on a projector in our Activity room.
