Boston is one of the oldest cities in the US and captivates its visitors with historic sites and European flair. The city offers a great selection of Boston hostel options.

If you are looking for a Boston hostel, there are several suburbs to consider. Downtown is the geographical heart of the city and allure you with lots of shopping and nightlife spots. Allston-Brighton is where the young and hip live, it is a residential area for most of the university students and contains lots of cheap eateries and funky cafes. North End is the Italian quarter; if you like the Italian way of life and enjoy amazing food, you could look for a hostel there

Logan International Airport is connected to the city center by train (Blue and Silver Line). Getting to a Boston hostel or elsewhere in the city should not be a problem. It's a walkable small city, so try exploring by foot. A red line of bricks embedded into the ground of the sidewalk along the Freedom Trail, will lead you to the historic sights. There is also an extensive public transport system for you to use.

While in Boston, walk the Freedom Trail and explore the city’s history, including the Massachusetts State House, the Site of the Boston Massacre, and the USS Constitution. Your Bosten hostel should have information about these sites. You can also visit one of the prominent art museums such as the Museum of Fine Arts, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, or the Institute of Contemporary Art. Try New England’s culinary specialty clam chowder, a thick clam soup that is served in a bowl made of bread. The best time to visit is during Indian Summer when you will be amazed by the bright and colorful leaves everywhere in the city.
