The grand hall of the Morty Rich hostel was a great respite from the summer Houston heat. We were struck by how great the reception area of the hostel looked and it was possibly the nicest general hostel area I had been in. Unfortunately that's about as good as it got for this hostel. We were checked into the "back... More

Please allow me to start my review by saying this was my first Hostel experience and based on the prompt follow up with the Manager regarding my concern; this was clearly a rare instance. That said, I stayed in room #7 (the attic) and the first thing I noticed was the filthy carpeting. As a New Yorker, I've seen worse... More

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.

The hostel is amazing, spotlessly cleaned, really well designed, nice decor, library/pool room which we used a great deal, nice pool area. 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 Hostel was really well presented, clean and the staff were friendly and approachable. There was a large outdoor area beautifully landscaped complete with a pool and hammock, perfect for summer lounging. The interior was lovely, no complaints here. the Kitchen was fully stocked and was able to make tea/coffee at any hour which was nice. Houston, because of its... More

Helpful staff. I got my own private tour in the hostel when I got there :) breakfast was good, basic and for free. Nice room with own balcony. Area is really nice and one of the safest in Houston with lots of restaurants close by. I really enjoyed my stay there. A that is a minor thing for improvement is,... 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
