I stayed here overnight when visiting Houston for a concert. Overall, the house and accommodations were AMAZING, and the hostel itself is in an awesome part of the city. The only thing is that the heat was unbearable! I tried to sleep, but I couldn't get over the heat. When I went downstairs to tell the overnight clerk, she found... More

I can't quite put in words the amount of fun I had at this place. It was a real adventure to get here (I had a bad experience at another place first) so this place felt like a piece of heaven afterwards. Great staff, friendly vibes. Rooms are comfortable and light. Outdoor areas are well maintained. Most importantly - easy... More

The hostel was clean, safe and quiet. The beds are very creaky and not that comfortable. The room didn't have enough outlets and the aircon was so cold that I was wearing sweat pants and a hoodie to bed along and using blankets. The staff were really helpful and welcoming

We stayed at the Morty Rich hostel for 3 nights in June 2015, and were very impressed with the place in it's entirety, The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable, the pool was awesome, and it was located just a 5 minute walk away from shops, restaurants, and no further than a mile away from the bars in Midtown....

Great spacious rooms, superb location, great way to meet other solo travellers over breakfast and a safe friendly place to stay. WiFi and aircon worked well. Room alway clean. Good transport links and local information. Helpful staff.

I stayed at the hostel March 16-23, and was also concerned that my credit card information had been taken down in the back office. When I got back to Boston, I noticed fraudulent charges had been made on my card in Houston. I have since filed a report with my bank to investigate. I hope Hi Hostel was not responsible,... More

A very clean hostel, however it wasn't very social at all. For a place that we thought would be full of young travellers - the majority of people were over the age of 50. Which I have nothing against of course - but it would have added to the experience if younger people closer to our age were there. Any... More

The Pros, good location, friendly staff, very economical. Con's- I was in a small room with 4 sets of bunk beds. I am a tall person so I did not fit to well, and the beds are very squeaky. Hard to move without waking everyone up from the bed noise. I was in a room with an individual that continued... More

A friend and I stayed here recently and we have both had clones of our debit cards made without our knowledge. The hostel makes it a point of taking your debit card information in their back office. If anyone else has stayed at this hostel recently (March-April), PLEASE check your bank account for unauthorized transactions. PLEASE post on Yelp &... More

Dear Olivia, I am very sorry you had your information stolen and that location of our credit card machine has given the wrong impression. We have our credit card machine in the back office, because our internet line is located there and enables us to process cards while not tying up our phone line. It is our policy that the... More

I travelled around the whole us last summer and this hostel was by far the best place we stayed in! It's a huge mansion, very tidy and clean. Free roam of the house and I'm only disappointed I couldn't stay longer! Prices were superb and we left wishing we had more time here. Only a short bus ride to the... More
