I experienced a wonderful stay at Hi Boston! From all the little things like earplugs at the desk to the delicious baked goods available for purchase in the lobby.. the daily planned outings and friendly and helpful staff! I will prefer to stay here than even a pricey Hotel! The other Hostels in the City need to visit to see the difference it makes when people care and go the extra mile! Thanks for a great place to stay!

Truly a top flight hostel. More like an actual hotel. Really great physical layout. Large kitchen and common area. Another common area downstairs. Nice Staff too. Great location in Chinatown. Very highly rated.

I'd like to volunteer but am not sure how I could from Bangor, Maine. I am interested if you want to dialogue.
