Fun home away from home
Backpackers was a clean and friendly hostel; the common areas were well used through my summer weekend visit, and it was easy to meet interesting people to explore the city with. The free pick up and drop off make getting to the hostel from the nearby transit station easy; just remember to carry change for the payphone if you don't have a local cellphone. The included breakfast was simple, but all I needed to get going. My dorm was air conditioned, and shared a bathroom with the adjoining room. Shower was in the room as well, but additional showers and bathrooms were in the hall, so I never had to wait.

Good alternative
The hostel is located relatively far from downtown Boston (half an hour by subway). Then you have to catch a public transport bus (once per hour), call for the free shuttle or walk (20 minutes). The latter is not convenient. The staff however is very friendly. There's a bar inside the hostel and around the corner is a minimarket/gasoline station where you can also order warm meals. The people in the eight dorm room were all quiet folks.

Why can't all hostels be the same?
Well what can I say? After reading some reviews about the place I was a bit skeptical, but after arriving there and spending 4 nights I was very happy. The location isn't downtown so the hostel is a little more laid back with a good personal touch from the staff. They run a shuttle to and from the nearest train/subway station which is free, although if it's a nice day you can walk it with an orange line they have painted on the sidewalk. Clean rooms, some with en suite, some without. Free wifi, free tea, coffee and toast in the mornings until 11am. All the staff do their utmost to help you out if there's anything you need and really do make you feel welcome. One guy in particular (Chris) always had suggestions for places to eat or shop near by and genuinely seemed really happy to have you as a guest. I will definitely be stopping by next time I'm in Boston.

Great hostel.
such a cozy hostel for me and my girl. all staff were so nice, no problem to get info or things in need. and many people wonder about the shuttle bus. shuttle is from 8am-12pm, 5-10pm, every 30 mins from hostel to wellington station. so from hostel, just ask to staff, she/he will give a ride. but from station to hostel, you gotta call them. its 617 294 2161. for the last but not least, the staff, named Yu, she gave me a ride to station on the last day, although it was after 12pm. I appreciate it. Thank you so much BBR!
