HI Friendly Crossways is the second longest continually operating hostel in the US. The hostel is only 30 miles northwest of Boston and Harvard Square in Cambridge and easily accessible by train.

HI Friendly Crossways has many great facilities including; a large, well-stocked self-catering kitchen, delicious, healthy meals provided by an on-site caterer, fireplace, fire circle and common rooms.

This country hostel is only 20 minutes from Thoreau's Walden Pond, national historical parks in Lowell and Concord, and the Fruitlands Museums. The surrounding area is great for hiking, canoeing, biking, and skiing. Fascinating day trips can be made to Salem, Plymouth, Sturbridge , and Boston for history, maritime museums, witches, whale watching and more.

A wonderful retreat from the city. I was attending a class in Woburn and was so delighted to find the Littleton Hostel. I could have spent more time there.
