One Of The Cheapest Places To Stay In Boston

Most people in America are already aware at how expensive the city of Boston is. If ya want to go to a bar, it'll cost ya. If ya want to park your car, that will cost you $20 or more. Literally everything you do in Boston will cost you a pretty penny or two. However, in the Chinatown neighborhood of Boston there is a place to stay that won't burn a hole in your pocket.

A typical room in the HI Boston
Located at 19 Stuart Street in Boston, Massachusetts, sits a modern and affordable hostel called HI Boston. Compared to the hotels in the area this place seems almost too good to be true. The rooms go for about $40 a night, and you have an option of getting a private room or you can bunk in a dorm style room that sleeps up to 8 people. Next to each bunk is an over sized locker that provides some privacy. Every bunk also has a nook with four sockets that you can use to charge your phone or laptop. The bathrooms are located next to the rooms, and are very well maintained.

When you awake in the morning you find yourself enjoying the free breakfast from 7am - 10am. After breakfast you can hang out in the modern looking lobby and chat with fellow travelers. There is also a pool table and TV so you have in-house entertain.

Location is probably the best selling point for this hostel. It's located in the colorful neighborhood of Chinatown and just a block over is the entertaining Theater District. There are two T stops with in walking distances and a number of bars, historic landmarks, and other activities are located near by.

The only negative aspect about this hostel is that check out is no later than 11am, beer is not allowed inside (quiet hours are 11pm - 7am) and there is an extra $3 a night charge at check in if you are not a Hostelling International member. Other than that, I can confidently say that this is the best hostel you will ever stay at.
