I spent three days at the hostel, was very well treated by the very nice and efficient staff. I got to meet people from different parts of the world, hang out and have fun with them. Not to mention the place is very well located, close to westheimer and Montrose.

We booked a private double with ensuite, for this we were given a whole floor of a little outhouse in the garden area which was lovely - probably nicer than most hotels we stayed in. The hostel was... More

This place is just fantastic. The atmosphere is great with people from all around the world (mostly in their 20s). The house is an old Mansion so the building is really beautiful. There´s a great pool area and garden and the staff was really friendly and helpful. For 25 dollars a night you couldn't ask for more!!!

The Morty Rich Houston HI Hostel rightly deserves accolades. As with all the HI Hostels I've stayed at for 40 years it is exceptionally clean, well maintained, and operated with the traveler's needs at the forefront. It is a quiet hostel on a quiet residential street. Almost all the rooms at this hostel have their own private bathroom with a... More

Have stayed twice and this is my favourite hostel I've stayed in. It's in a lovely house in a great neighbourhood. Staff are fantastic - so helpful and willing to answer any questions about the area. Rooms are spacious and clean. Wouldn't think to look anywhere else in Houston now!

Spacious, clean and located in a very nice neighborhood. Staff were very helpful and polite. Garden with pool and hammock and a billiards room were nice bonus's too. Some rooms also have balconies. For a HI hostel the place had quite a lot of character. Definitely a safe bet for staying in Houston.
