The property is a bit rough and ready. Rambling old houses. But it's clean enough and ample. I was impressed by the way that Qwinn, the reception person, communicated with me and kept in touch with me as I was travelling on my way there.

The shadiest hostel I've ever been to, a statement which my traveling friends agreed to. Pretty much the cheapest place in St. Louis with pretty nice location. Had to be pretty scared about sleeping though, heard some awkward sounds and the general shadiness didn't really help it. Go if you want a cheap place, but don't expect anything but the... More

I called to make a booking - the poor phone etiquette should have been my first tip-off that I probably shouldn't stay here. The owner didn't identify himself, the hostel, or anything, just a "Hello?" Okay.... I ask to make a reservation, and he tells me to send an email. I ask what he all needs to know, and off... More

I recently stayed at this hostel and it was in a really lovely neighbourhood but just a few things made it not as good as I'd hoped, the lights went out on the first day and weren't fixed until we were leaving so we had to shower in the dark, on the first morning a man walked through our dorm...

Found this hostel by chance online. Its not the fanciest hostel but its cheap, near some cool bars and met some interesting people here. You do need to be a bit organized to find the place. Its walking distance to the brewery. Check the bus timetable to get downtown.

Unlike what I expected from all the negative comments; the stay there was actually nice. People were friendly and even though I arrived outside the 6-10 pm 'office hours', I got helped out. The neighbourhood is very nice, there are stores in the proximity (there is also a farmer's market nearby which is pretty nice), some cosy bars. It is... More

I didn't object to the vague blanket situation or the close quarters. I didn't object to my bunk mate carrying on phone conversations at random hours throughout the night and I didn't even object to the towel they provided me suddenly going missing. These are the gambles of hosteling and I think it's illogical and churlish when people complain about... More

Me and my friend were looking for hostels in St Louis. This was the only one we could find. To begin with, their website doesn't allow you to book online. We had to get in touch with the proprietor, who assured us he would have beds available for four days. On arriving at the hostel, we found it to be... More

I'm pretty tolerant & have always been happy with my hostel stays, but this place was filthy. Smelled strongly of cat urine, dirty walls, sinks, carpet, pillows & mattresses are disgusting (though we were given clean bedding). We were going to stay several days but left after one, because we just couldn't stand it.

This hostel is nowhere near like some of the hostels I have stayed in, in terms of modern facilities etc but I still enjoyed my time. It does have the basic facilities to get you through the week. The people who were staying there at the time were very nice and the guy next door, Walter is an incredibly nice... More
