Sitting in the Stairwell

Welcome to Boston Homestel

We are a small, cozy European hostel style short term rental accommodations.  We are independent and we keep our cheapest rooms and rates off Hostelworld, Booking, HI, or any other multinational corporations. We offer private rooms and manageable family rooms of just 4, 3 or 2 people in mixed and female-only rooms. Your experience with us will be personal, unlike larger bed and breakfast or hostels. We'll know you by first name, even if you only stay 1 night. We like to have fun, but this is not a party house, so we ask our guests to be mature and responsible. 

Why Choose Us?

  • We're a 5 minute walk from the T (train) station - just 3 stops and you're in downtown Boston!

  • We're walking distance to the South Boston beach

  • Free Wi-Fi in all rooms

  • Free coffee and tea all day

  • Close to bars and grocery stores

  • Fully equipped kitchen available

  • Free luggage and bike storage (outdoors)

  • 24-hour video surveillance for your safety

What Guests Are Saying


Bridget Deerflinger

Homey, comfy, and clean! Wise and kind people. Fantastic house - warm and friendly. I love the neighborhood. Great grocery store to buy healthy food and cook a meal at the hostel, if you like. Red line train is super close. I walked around the Dorchester Bay. Fantastic city! I felt totally safe and happy!

An amazing experience! Common areas are spacious and clean. Great location - close to grocery stores and the subway station to get downtown. Two nice beaches close to the hostel. Staff are super friendly. Very international hostel.
