This hostel isn't The Ritz but it's in keeping with a lot of buildings in the City of Buffalo. The facilities are quite acceptable (I was in a 10 person co/ed dorm). Luckily I had a couple of girls at my end and it was neat and tidy as opposed to the other end that was occupied by all males.... More

Incredible hostel. Very, very quiet which makes for a good night's rest. The staff members were extremely friendly and helpful when it came to navigating the city. The hostel is located right on main street. Safe location and lots of security to get into the building and the rooms. Bathrooms very clean. Full kitchen stocked with spices and tea and... More

Overall, our experience was great. There was no fuss at all and everything was fast and efficient. We checked in a little bit early but the girl (Sorry I forgot her name) was more than accommodating. The rooms were clean, the hostel amenities were top and the bathroom was spotless. There's also an entertainment area on the first floor which... More

When I first came up North from New York City, the hostel completely blew me away. Never mind the security card access (which can sometimes be a pain but made you feel super safe)bathe toilets, bedroom, beds, kitchen and the staff were absolutely amazing. Not to mention how close it was to the city center and the great bars but... More

Around 30 people from the Bike The US For MS Northern Tier team stayed here overnight. They had great bike parking in the back room that was locked. The hosts were friendly and cooked us oatmeal and made us coffee in the morning.

From my first encounter (a telephone reservation) with the staff here, until I checked out and got back my $10 lock deposit, I found nothing but pleasant interactions at this low-cost, but high value hostel. I chose the all-male dorm room option, which turned out to be very adequate for my needs, with amenities similar to an inexpensive motel, minus... More

Right on the main street (literally). It's got lots of charm and the staff are helpful. Standard bunkbeds in the (male, female, and mixed) dorms.Good kitchen and lounge facilities. Convenient for a daytrip to Niagara Falls.

They shared many staffs to guests. For example, free food and drink. There was always something, so it was really helpful when I wanted to something. Also they have bikes, I went to glossary shopping with my friend and it was fun, because we can see local places by ourselves. Moreover, the staff was so kind that they gave me... More

I stayed here for 3 nights and honestly think it's the best hostel I have stayed in during my Canada and US trip. They offer free tea, coffee, oatmeal and other cooking supplies one would not travel with (such as cooking oil, variety of spices, plastic knives and forks for day trips etc.). The staff are super friendly and helpful...... More

Here's a little story. I left my camera there few weeks ago inside one of the locker. When I noticed I was already back in my home country thousands miles away. I was so desperate and I knew I might not be able to have my camera back again. But surprisingly the staff of this hostel were very helpful. They... More
