“fairly new hostel”
Reviewed 20 September 2011

The friendstreet hostel is quite a new hostel. You can see that. They still have to find their way and see how they can play the guests-card. The accomodation is quite basic, yet, its very clean. The staff is very helpfull. The location is just perfect. Near Hayfield station and very very close to North end (little italy), where the pubs are. I would strongly advise this hostel, as its honest and they are concerned about their customers!

Reviewed 25 July 2011

Friend Street is a lovely, homey little hostel it an excellent part of Boston - walking distance to just about everywhere and when you don't feel like walking the T is just a couple of blocks away. Free breakfast, heaps of organised activities and the staff were really welcoming, friendly and knowledgable, Common areas were clean and the dorms were spacious....and the best part is that it's just going to get better and better with the addition of the downstairs area!

More lights in the dorms would be a bonus and the ventialtion in the bathroom needs help! While the common room had welcome air-con in the crazy boston heat the dorms were like furnaces - they did their best with fans but they made little difference...I think a lot of people were sleep deprived while I was there!

But don't let those little things put you off! All in all this is a great hostel and a GREAT alternative to those big anonymous hostels you find around the place. Highly Recommended.
