And that's good, because something had to. I booked for three nights, ended up staying for four. The first person I met was Dan, out on the street, who asked "Are you the new guy?" Within 10 minutes, I was very happy to be the new guy. I had a kitchen that I should have made more use of, for... More

This place is great. I had a private room with private kitchen and a shared bathroom. It was clean and comfortable plus you get a free breakfast in the morning. The host, Leah was amazing and very friendly. If you need any travel advice or anything she is always willing to help out. She also gives you a map, some... More

I stayed with a couple of friends in the dorm and were amazed of how nice atmosphere there was. I've never written a review about anything before but this place calls for one. The hosts, Leah and Danny are very friendly people and you can see they enjoy what they do. Their kindness spread through the guests without any of... More

We finished our road trip in Houston at this hostel. It was prefect for us we stayed in the mixed dorm. It was clean with a lovely sitting area and kitchen. It felt more like a little holiday let than a hostel. The owner was lovely and had lots of advice to give on places to visit etc. The only... More

I stayed in a private room that was minimal but acceptable -- bare wooden floors, thin foam mattress -- but with an air conditioner that really cranked. (Houston is hot pretty much all the time.) Location is great, in an older 'hood just a few blocks from the glittering downtown and a 30-min walk (20 the way I walk) to... More

Charming place in the oldest area of Houston, probably one of the most interesting. Lovely houses and streets. Rooms are very rough. We had a good time apart from having all our stuff moved from one (private) room to another while we were out without even receiving a phone call to ask first. And when we complained politely about that... More

Leah and Danny are friends!, My business takes me to many hotels around the world, yet a hotel is just a place to stay. At Friends house, you get to sample real people and experience the real culture that Houston has to offer. Here you have everything you need and much more Leah and Danny are the best hosts I... More

This is a fantastic hostel run by a very nice couple. We checked in very late and were given an amazing welcome with lots of advice on Houston. Nothing bad to say about this place, location, service and atmosphere were all top notch. I would absolutely recommend this place and would definately return should I visit Houston!

Danny and Leah who run the place are super friendly (pun intended) and seem to want to offer a help and tips to their guests. You basically get a house with 2 bedrooms, lounge and kitchen. Stayed in a private room which was quite large and they had double beds! They had a bit of a mixup with our booking... More
