Bought the dude that worked the desk dinner and then drove him home. Super nice guy. Then got decimated by bed bugs. Had no experience with them so thought it was a rash from the weird sheets. Traveled on to stay with friends and brought the bugs to them. Horrible, horrible experience. Called the hostel to talk to my friend... More

The good. $15 for one night and $25 for your own private room.. About 10 mins from Downtown on the Metro Rail which is a few blocks away from the hostel. A nice area. You can actually check in at 8am-10am if you arrive in Houston extra early. The staff seemed decent The bad.. The actual hostel looks like it's... More

I was returning from a 3-month trip, stopping by in Houston to visit some friends. I found this hostel online, and it was very conveniently located. So after returning from the supposed third world, I spent one night here. I woke up with no fewer than 50 bed bug bites all over my body. On top of that, nobody is... More

I have probably stayed in about 20 hostels in the US and this was by far the worst - in fact, I really don't know how it's still operational. I can only assume the people leaving gushing reviews are friends of the manager or have been paid to do so. As soon as I walked through the door, I was... More

We stayed at HIH in July. Helpful staff, good location but the place is indeed riddled with bed bugs. My partner was covered in bites the next day. We lost a day of our trip rewashing and disinfecting our luggage. Should have read the reviews but we didn't. Do not stay here! Get the pest guys in HIH.

We stayed here 2 nights ago, we have just spent the last 2 hours killing bed bugs that have attached themselves to our bags after staying here. We have found up to 20 bugs on each of our bags and backpacks. There must be a serious infestation here. Service was fine, and paying $15/night is dirt cheap, but it just... More

I stayed in a 4 bedroom together with my friends. The beds are small and remind me of prison beds. The floor wasn't cleaned up for a long time since I dropped my bottle and tried to dry the floor and my towel went black. There where only to bathrooms on the first floor. In one the toilet didn't work... More

This is an old dumpy house in a neighborhood now filled with condos and duplexes. The Hostel is very small compared to others I have stayed in, so it gets a very friendly and close knit feel to it. I stayed there for 12 days over 3 weeks and saved a lot of money over other hostels or hotels. I... More
