One of those flaky hostels where you can get drunk, pass out, and vomit all the over place but, for God's sake, don't wear shoes inside. Stopped in on my way to Maine a couple weeks ago. Went to bed at fairly normal hours, only to be kept up by lights that were still on over the sleeping areas and... More

The burlington hostel is a nice place to stay, to begin with. It is very clean (the staff actually got upset when someone in my room was messy), there is enough room for everyone in the rooms and common area, it's in a good location in downtown burlington. Not to mention the staff are so nice and willing to help... More

I stayed at the Burlington hostel for a six days in July, 2015, and it was an excellent stay. While I'd stayed at many hostels in Europe in my youth, this was my first time in 15 years, and I'm not sure how well I'd be received as a 51-year-old. It wasn't necessary to have worried. The staff are calm... More

I've stayed in a number of hostels in Europe, from the very seedy to the very elegant. The Burlington Hostel was one of the best I've ever been in - impeccably clean, and they provide you with free bedding, towels, and lockers. You also get free waffles and coffee in the morning, which is a really great touch. In terms... More

A great base for exploring Burlington. Around the corner from a world class bakery (AUGUST FIRST) this is a clean and comfy place to meet world travelers, recover from skiing or whatever, and venture out to the waterfront or Church Street Marketplace. Way more fun than a hotel (and cheaper), I felt totally comfortable as a single woman traveling alone.... More

I stayed here originally for one night when I was checking out the area (where I now live) because the hotel I booked didn't have space for my first night. I am so glad! Ended up staying at the Hostel the whole trip. It is somehow low-key but also friendly -- I wanted to know about decent restaurants and ended... More

The location of this hostel cannot be beat. We were so close to all the spots we wanted to check out, and just a stones throw from Lake Champlain. Everything about their operation is very professional, they have key card entry for security, and lockers to safeguard valuables but I felt very comfortable with the fellow lodgers. The room was...
