12 minute walk or a quick streetcar ride from the heart of downtown Buffalo and the Sabres arena. The price is great, the hostel is super clean, cozy, and comfortable as well. The staff are very nice people who genuinely love their city and ensuring their guests have a great visit. Would recommend this place to anyone looking to spend... More

I had such a wonderful time at this hostel. John went the extra mile and helped me load my bike into the cab and also let me build a VR bubble. I also love that they had VHS cassettes. Would recommend to anyone. Very close to Babeveille where I saw Joanna Newsom. Also, got to experience a Caga Tio.

The staff were always helpful. The rooms were clean, the showers too. The kitchen is fully equipped, even for baking! There is plenty of fridge space to store stuff. There is complimentary coffee, oatmeal and even raisins! There is a very cosy dining/lounge area. Also laundry facilities which is most helpful. They will even lend you umbrellas! The only thing...

This hostel is located approximately 15-20 min walk from the Buffalo Bus Terminal. I didnt stay for a night, but I utilized their day pass option , which is from 4 pm to about 1030 pm. It was 10 USD and it was good enough for me, as I was just stopping by, resting and getting a shower before carrying... More

Clean hostel with ok facilities (ping pong downstairs and VHS film room) Kitchen is kitted out with tea and coffee which is a really nice touch. Hostel staff were unhelpful - could not tell us of what to do in the area, just handed us a map. Check in is at 4pm - way to late! Also you cannot leave... More

I stayed here one night as I was attending a Buffalo Sabres game at the First Niagara Center. This hostel is so wicked close to everything. The train stop, Fountain Plaza is a couple of blocks away and to go from the arena or Erie Canal stop to Fountain Plaza is free! You can't beat that.I have stayed in other... More

I had a 10 hour wait for my next bus, and I reserved a dorm bed for the night. The hostel was within walking distance from the bus station and the staff was very helpful getting me checked in. The hostel was very clean and well lit with an elevator. I was well rested for my morning bus. I would... More

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

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
