excellent hostel, great location, close to the border and to the bus station, the directions on the hostel website are very specific so it was very easy to understand how to get there. I got there in 8AM and got a bed immediately, the workers are very nice and helpful. The hostel is very clean and the visitors keeps it... More

The hostel was very clean & I was very satisfied. The reception people are very nice. They checked me in right away. I'd stay here again if I was in town. (We have to write 200 words minimum and don't know what else to say). :)

-loud rooms with street noise -rude staff -flimsy uncomfortable mattresses -cheap price but not a good value I am a seasoned traveler who has stayed at countless hotels and hostels in many countries. I have never experienced such rude and downright hostile treatment in a hostel. After calling in advance to announce our arrival, we were left out in the... More

I'm from Brazil and I had never been abroad before. Coming to this hostel was a really good choice. The place is clean, well organized, has a good location and it's comfortable. The staff was extremely helpful giving me directions, talking about the city, borrowing me a power adapter when my phone ran out of battery and I couldn't buy... More

PERFECT HOSTEL FOR YOUR STAY IN BUFFALO. I have been to possibly hundreds of hostels around the world and this one is just ideal. I arrived from NYC on the bus at 1am. It was very easy to enter the hostel as my pin was out and a linen and towel waiting. The beds were extremely comfortable, the bathrooms clean... More

Stayed here for one night in December 2013 as part of an organised tour. As William S and AndrewELP state below, there were road works going on on the street the hostel's on, so wheeling cases to / from the building wasn't as easy as it could've been but we didn't hear any noise from the building work during our...

Wanted to stay at a hostel for the first time ever to see what it is like. Turns out the hostels in the US are a little different than those in Europe or so I'm told. I enjoyed the process of booking with hostel buffalo. Same girl who booked my resv over the phone a couple months early was actually... More

I stayed here when I attended a concert at the First Niagara center which is very close to the hostel. The hostel has an excellent location in downtown Buffalo and the bus stop to go the the airport is tight across the street. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the beds are small bunk beds but very comfortable, has... More

I stayed here twice this summer, once with my girlfriend on a trip, and again alone as I was moving to Buffalo. I've been in hostels all around the world and this is really near the top of my list. It's a good location, right on the subway line, and near a lot of buses. It also isn't too far... More
