  • Is it possible to have a cot for the 2nd adult in the queen room?

    If you need a private room with two beds (a queen and a cot), please let us know when you make the reservation: we have very few private rooms with this option and the sooner we know, the sooner we can make sure you get that room. As always, please be aware that all of our rooms and beds are subject to availability and so we can never guarantee a spot in one of these rooms.

  • can parking be arranged and if how much?

    We don't actually have any parking at the Hostel. Parking is difficult in the city. Boston was built before cars were invented, so parking can be a bit of a pain. I suggest parking at MBTA stations and using the subway to get closer to downtown. It's much cheaper. But if you don't mind paying a bit more, BostonCommon Garage and Pilgrim Parking are cheaper options near the city. We do have vouchers for 25/day parking at AVA garage that's right next door, but they're in limited supply. Swing by the front desk before parking to find out if we have any! Hope that helps! -Tommy, HI Boston
