good value for the money. the rooms were clean, the bathrooms could use some attention, good museum location. the best part, is chris gallegos, the nite manager, he is wonderful, he gives good directions, good restaurant reccomendations, and even carries my bags. The marriot should hire this guy| Thanks Don S. Fort Collins Colo.

Best place ever. Feels like home. Too find this kind of place in houston is very hard. The guy at the front desk, chris. He is a great man. Very helping and perfect place to stay in a big city. My experience was wonderful with this hostel. I stayed in houston for 3 months. Best place ever 👍

No one was there when we arrived in the afternoon and after half an hour of waiting we left only to return in the evening. Hostel terribly dirty and messy , if there was a chance to give 0 stars would be the only voting right ..Help!!!! Anyway...ENJOY

Starting with the positives, the man working reception during their limited hours was friendly and helpful. Advising us on ways to get around Houston and offering to look after our valuables whilst we were out. The location is close to the museum district which has a tram service. The building looks dilapidated from the outside and when we reached inside... More

Bought the dude that worked the desk dinner and then drove him home. Super nice guy. Then got decimated by bed bugs. Had no experience with them so thought it was a rash from the weird sheets. Traveled on to stay with friends and brought the bugs to them. Horrible, horrible experience. Called the hostel to talk to my friend... More

The good. $15 for one night and $25 for your own private room.. About 10 mins from Downtown on the Metro Rail which is a few blocks away from the hostel. A nice area. You can actually check in at 8am-10am if you arrive in Houston extra early. The staff seemed decent The bad.. The actual hostel looks like it's... More

I was returning from a 3-month trip, stopping by in Houston to visit some friends. I found this hostel online, and it was very conveniently located. So after returning from the supposed third world, I spent one night here. I woke up with no fewer than 50 bed bug bites all over my body. On top of that, nobody is... More

I have probably stayed in about 20 hostels in the US and this was by far the worst - in fact, I really don't know how it's still operational. I can only assume the people leaving gushing reviews are friends of the manager or have been paid to do so. As soon as I walked through the door, I was... More

We stayed at HIH in July. Helpful staff, good location but the place is indeed riddled with bed bugs. My partner was covered in bites the next day. We lost a day of our trip rewashing and disinfecting our luggage. Should have read the reviews but we didn't. Do not stay here! Get the pest guys in HIH.

We stayed here 2 nights ago, we have just spent the last 2 hours killing bed bugs that have attached themselves to our bags after staying here. We have found up to 20 bugs on each of our bags and backpacks. There must be a serious infestation here. Service was fine, and paying $15/night is dirt cheap, but it just... More
