i was travelling through the USA, ended in Ft Myers one late night and needed a place to stay, and it was only by chance that i found this place!! it really felt like visiting a friend rather then staying at a hostel: comfortable, VERY friendly, homey and clean!! i had a great time and totally recommend going there!!

This is a great little find in Florida. The owner Nick is so sweet, and genuinely cares about the quality of your stay. As he puts it himself, he greets guests like they are cousins coming to stay. The hostel is really a little house in Nick's back garden, with a comfy living room complete with plasma screen and plenty... More

This hostel is located in downtown Fort Myers. The facilities are in without doubt excellent! The host, Nicholas, is extremely friendly and shows you on your first night also local bars and pubs himself (not to mention the coupons that he has for you). If you are in Fort Myers, come to this hostel!

The hostel was tricky to find, as there's no signs, no crazy decorations nor were there thousands of other travellers hanging around as there usually are. It was pretty quiet. But Nicholas was there to guide us in, bless him, standing outside waving his arms. In a nutshell, the hostel is immaculately clean and tidy, comfortable and one requires nothing... More

The River District Hostel is without hyperbole one of the best hostels I have stayed in over twenty years of traveling. The location is superb, the hospitality warm and welcoming and the facilities clean, stylish and restful. What more could you ask? Thanks Nicholas.

This might be the best kept secret in Fort Myers. I really liked the private gardens. The Room was very clean and the DVD's were all guy movies so I had fun when it rained.

After 30 years of hosteling, maybe I found the best... ??? Nicholas owns and runs this 3-4 guest "luxury hostel." Rates at time of this review is $29. Like most of Florida, Ft. Myers is expensive. Nick keeps it affordable and definitely among the best options in the area. Offerings at this hostel are unbelievable... (ready for this?) a hot... More
