Best Hostel stay!!!
It was a great stay! The staff was very helpful and friendly. The shared room (hostel) was clean and very comfortable. I enjoyed the outdoor patio and swimming pool. I have recommended it to all my family and friends. When in Houston, I will stay there again.

Spend $10 more and stay at the other hostel
First read all the information if you’re not a Hostel member there is an extra fee of $4. Idk what for. You’re not staying in the AC building you see, you are staying in a building behind the building that is not like the photos. Beds were trash, pillows are horrible, dirty bathroom & the wall AC only cools the side where you are at. I have stayed at plenty of hostels and this by far was HORRIBLE

Interesting and enjoyable
Overall I enjoyed my stay. My bathroom could’ve been a little cleaner but the front desk was very nice and some of the people I met were incredible.

Good place to stay.
Was a great place to stay, lots to see and do. Perhaps some organised social events would be nice but there were bars 3 blocks away which were awesome. Very good for transport links.

What a fabulous hostel!
Had a very pleasant stay. Staff was very friendly and the complimentary breakfast was a nice way to start the day. The locale was perfect for local errands. The ironing board and iron was very handy. My shared room had a nice balcony with nice views. Highly recommend to tourists!

Good 6,0
It's a "24 hour hostel", which, in practice, means new guests can enter your dorm any time. Two did, before midnight and before 1 am, waking me.
