You get what you pay for at this hostel. I recommend you google street view it first because it just looks like a normal house and there is nothing to say what it is. There are mice everywhere but the service is good. The bathrooms are horrible. There is only 3 showers for the whole hostel and the kitchen is... More

Firstly, I want to to mention that people should stop rating hostels as if they are hotels. There will always be some kinks in a hostel, so if you are a high-maintenance person, they are not for you. That being said, this was my first time staying in a hostel and so I was still a bit worried. However, our... More

I have just stayed at this hostel. I chose it because of the unbeatable price as i shopped around for hostels, and this one was the cheapest. I thought it was a bit out of the way but it was nice to come back to a quiet place at night. For the price it was very good value, the person... More

This hostel will restore your faith not only in hostels, but in humanity!!! A bold statement yes, but certainly a true one. After arriving in Buffalo on the GreyHound, getting off to snow, ice, and pitch black with empty streets looking like a scene from a disaster movie (where did everyone go?), we finally staggered through the cold and found...

The hostel staff were very friendly and helpful - I was arriving very late (11pm) and taking a taxi early (4am) on my day of departure (I never knew if I was supposed to tip them? Would... More
