Just finished my first of two nights at HI-Baltimore. For $30/night, for just two nights, it'll do. My first hosteling experience was HI-Santa Monica, which was amazing in so many ways...so I'm totally spoiled. The building is old and beautiful, but the en-suite bathroom was cramped. The guests were nice for the most part. Really like the common room. Kitchen... More

the hostel would be quite cool, but sadly I was one of about 5 guests... There is a nice common area with books and a computer. The staff was really funny and friendly. I also took advantage of the hostel hopper minivan with a friendly driver.

I stayed at Hi-Baltimore for a while, and I have to say it is fantastic. The staff is amazing! This was my first time staying at a hostel and I wasn't sure what to expect, especially having to share a room with so many people. During my stay I was in both the female dorm (12 beds) and the co-ed... More

Location is ok. The 8 bed bedrooms are very small. Breakfast could have more things for the price you pay for the rooms. Staff is very nice and friendly. Checking in should not be allowed after 10 pm - we were all waked up in the dorm by someone very noisy who arrived at 1 am

There are not a lot hostels in the city anyway, so not much choice. The hostel itself is fine, but not as good as the hostelling international in Washington DC or Boston, while the price is the same. The building is quite old (which is fine), and everything (bed, toilet, hallway) is quite narrow. The location is fine (you are... More

The hostel has a good location with easy access to public transportation for the airport and around the city and if you like walking you can get to most places by foot. The staff work successfully to keep this old building clean and polished. There are a few creaking doors but also a degree of charm you won't find in... More

This hostel is in an old mansion that is being upgraded and refurbished. It just had sprinklers put in, and it's working to expand up into more rooms. The staff are friendly and love the hostel. They no where to go, and they have some discounts worked out with local places for guests.

I stayed at this hostel the night before I ran a half marathon that started in the Inner Harbor. As a woman traveling by myself I never felt unsafe staying at this hostel or walking around the area. The staff was incredibly friendly, parking was convenient and it was clean and well maintained. It was nice to have access to... More

Facilities and staff-wise, this hostel is about average. The major gripe is that the place isn't built or renovated as a hostel: not enough bathrooms or showers, plus, they're hard to find. The doors all slam, and the electronic locks don't really work. The place is too far away from anything to be really walkable, especially since it is bordered... More

This hostel has a great location and a great staff. After than that the problems begin. It is funny that there are lots of signs about using water in a wise manner and things like that when they have so many problems concerning it. All the taps in this place are leaking as are the toilet flushes (when they work,... More
