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...

If you like hostels and like being in the heart of Burlington not too far from Church Street- the Burlington Hostel is the place to stay. August's Bakery is around the corner, and everything within walking distance. Even the great Skirack where to rent bicycles. I felt very safe and comfortable. Lockers are safe too with a combination. Great place... More

I arrived in Burlington after hiking the Appalachian Trail to catch a flight the following day. I had nothing planned other than to find a hotel or hostel. Based on price and location I decided on the hostel. I didn't realize it was parents weekend and was told they were all booked up. I asked where I may be able... More

Hi Hydepark, I wanted to reach out and apologize to you on behalf of everyone here at the hostel for the treatment you received as a result of your ethnicity. It's worth noting that the Burlington Hostel has come under new ownership this season. While I can't speak for the previous owners, I can say that our current staff values... More

This hostel is an easy walk to both "downtown" and the waterfront. It's above a restaurant, and surrounded by other restaurants. I stayed for one night, and was impressed that it was a) clean, b) pretty, c) had mood music and incense. There is plenty of seating, books, and board games, plus yoga mats and props for use. Self-serve waffles... More

Stayed on a short solo trip to Burlington-was perfect for my needs. Although a bit on the quiet side (i.e. did not notice a lot of interaction between guests) which created a somewhat formal vibe without any unpleasantness. The cleanliness was a 10 on scale of 1-10, cleaner than many hotels and B&B's. Showers were hot. Located a few blocks... More

I've never stayed in a hostel this clean and well kept up. When I asked the front desk guy if the hostel was brand new, I was shocked to learn it has already been around for several years, because it all looks brand new. Just so you get an idea of how conscientiously and meticulously this place is executed, they... More

Spent one night at end of July 2013. Arrived late to locked door, but was immediately buzzed in by attendant. Score a point for good security. My bed was ready, with topsheet and pillowcase already on it. Score a point for customer service. Linens seemed to be a high thread count, so score another point for that. Whole hostel is... More
