This place is all about location, lets be honest here, if you're going to go to Fire Island it won't be for the rest and relaxation. Fire Island is a happening place, great for singles and couples looking to have a fun adventure at the beach where driving doesn't exist and the only way to get in trouble is being... More

I've never backpacked around Europe. But people tell me that the accommodations at Housers is like that. Here's what you get: a room with key, a bed or two (ours had a double and a twin and two windows overlooking the bay, or down at the restaurant patio below), a sink between the beds, an window air conditioning unit, some...

Housers is basically like a hostal. For those of you that never stayed in one as a lot of people who dont travel outside the U.S. never have, there are very small rooms with essentials only.

Housers is perfect for the value. Small but pleasant....only needed a room to sleep. Food was excellent and servers were courteous. Location was great. Water taxi next door. Bring your own water and beverages as everything in ocean beach is nearly 30 the price.

A loud band directly beneath my room kept me up the entire night! The room was tiny and stunk of mildew, one flimsy towel was provided and a dirty shared shower was in the hall that looked like it had not been cleaned in months. The Board of Health needs to visit this establishment. All this for $250 a night.... More

Stayed overnight and did not sleep the entire night. There was a very loud bar directly beneath my room with a LIVE BAND. I should have figured it out when I found two pairs of earplugs on the bureau. The room smelled of mildew. This hotel completely ruined what would have been a nice experience on Fire Island. Would not... More
