I only stayed overnight for one day. The staff were more than helpful when I called in late evening on the day of my stay. It is a nice place located in downtown Buffalo and the lounge, rooms and bathrooms were both decent and clean enough. The hostel is located right by the train tracks so it can get a... More

This hostel is located right on the theatre district of downtown Buffalo and right next to the metro rail system. The closest station is the Fountain Plaza station and you can ride the train to the Bus terminal, the First Niagara Center, the Harbourfront, and Coca Cola Field for FREE!!!!! Inside there is a basement with pong pong, darts, tv,... More

The staff here are super nice and free 24/7 oatmeal and tea is always a good idea especially when you are as into tactical spending as we are. The lounge areas are super duper comfy, and the retro VHS really brings something top the table. We wish we could have stayed longer, not just for the on point hospitality but... More

I stayed at the Buffalo/Niagara for two nights and it exceeded any expectations I had. The rooms, bathrooms, common areas, location and staff were all 5 star. I will absolutely be back. Buffalo is a great city with a lot of great attractions and restaurants and the Buffalo/Niagara is the perfect place to stay to experience it all.

If a member of staff were around I would've a) asked for some earplugs to drown out the noise from... More

My partner and I stayed for one night in the Hostel Buffalo-Niagara while visiting friends. We hadn't stayed in a hostel since we were in college, but decided to be adventurous and stay in a shared co-ed room to save a few dollars. We were happy we did: not only were the beds totally inexpensive compared to nearby downtown hotels,... More

What can I say? I haven't stayed in too many hostels in my life, but I'm sure that few are as pleasant as Hostel Buffalo Niagara. The first thing you notice is the welcoming reception area, with cool posters from floor to ceiling, collected over years of Buffalo art and cultural events, intermixed with handy suggestions for things to do...
