Very clean and spacious with common areas to hang out in before and after check-in/out times. Also, the property is gated and requires 3 codes to enter (which guests receive via email). Costs under $10 to take an Uber to the museum district and greyhound bus station if you aren’t comfortable walking.

Great! Super easy and seamless and great people. I am traveling around America via Amtrak and it was about $10-15 uber from the station and met great people at the hostel. Contactless check-in, very clean.

I was hesitant to stay at a hostel, however I am so glad I did! You can choose your own room or a shared room here but they are all super nice! The staff was unbelievably friendly and helpful. I can’t recommend this place enough! 10/10 will absolutely be staying here the next time I’m in Houston!

We Really enjoyed our stay at this hostel. I loved the easy check in, when I arrived the front desk employee was very helpful and showed me our room. The place was really clean and the beds were full sized with all the linen you’ll need for your stay. Bathrooms are a huge deal for me and this hostel had no issues at all with wait times for showers or toilet.

Loved this place bc it has all the right atmosphere of an inviting hostel. The front desk staff Ariana was great. She really went above and beyond not only to get me situated but also to help me discover Houston. Which is probably on of the reasons I really liked Houston, bc I got to really enjoy the area. If you are staying here you’ll be in great hands. Also not to mention the fact that the cleaning crew was super friendly and very thorough. Cheers guys!

Great place to stay. Spacious rooms with pillows and linen. The temperature felt nice and cool inside of the hostel and I was very comfortable. I ended up meeting the owner while I was checking out and she was very nice and friendly, which is always nice.

I’m considering attending college in Houston so I came down for a few days and found this hostel and I’m glad I did. Staff was really helpful and they have signs all around the hostel with food suggestions, activities, and things to do. The price was a steal and I’ve never stayed at a place so clean even though the rooms are dorms. Great stay.

I really enjoyed my stay here. The communication before check in was simple and easy and I like that there are no keys and everything is electronic. The hostel itself was very clean with unique decor and I felt at home. The beds are super large and comfortable and the pay have a community kitchen for guests to cook. Thanks wanderstay.
