Perhaps its helpful that they changed their name. It took me a good deal of searching on TripAdvisor to find them, and then it was by their street address. But either way, there are no rooms. The place is decent. I don't so much mind the plastic sheets others talked about. There is wifi, a kitchen, washing machines, and a... More

I cannot stress how much you shouldn't stay here. You're better off finding a cheap hotel or motel. It was dirty, disorganized, smelly, far away from the city, and just generally terrible. There was no check-in desk and even though we had booked online the guy who "served" us (if you can call it service) had no clue what was... More

I got to the hostel from DFW by public transport only to find no employees around. Thankfully there was a guest that stayed in that night and he let me in. It was initially very weird because I didn't have to check in with anyone, just pick a bed and make myself at home. It's not a bad thing, just... More

One of the worst hostels I've ever stayed in. The whole place is in need of a thorough clean, particularly the bathroom. The plastic sheets on the bed are extremely noisy. The common area in the middle of the bedrooms was in costant noisy use, particularly by the employees. We didn't know who the owner was until we were ready... More

The attention of Carlos and Ivan was very cordial. I was only a couple of hours visiting Dallas. I couldn´t sleep in the hostel, but it seems a good place to hang out a few days. One thing to keep in mind, in my case I visited Dallas and I had a connecting flight to another state in the morning.... More

This hostel is more like a house! Very comfortable. Easy to get around but train is expensive. Stayed for 3 nights, was lon enough. Staff were friendly, sometimes a bit too much.

This hostel is very welcoming and is a good value. When I arrived with a moving truck, I quickly saw that there was no room for me to park it, but they asked around and the neighbors across the street found a spot for me and made it work. The small yet homey hostel is very accommodating. Carlos even drove... More

Great wee stay at this hostel. It was like you lived there, it's a house converted into a hostel, the owner watched TV with you, you could cook your own meals there, keep your food in the fridge, everything necessary was there and all at a good price. I left my Scottish flag there accidentally, take good care of it... More

Lonely Planet was right about everything. Fantastic hosts, clean and well looked after hostel, cheap and easy. Little bit out of town but it is definitely manageable and good if you want to save the pennies. I highly recommend that you stay here!
