The staff were absolutely wonderful! They were very friendly and happy to help in any way they could. The property was well kept and has a large patio with pool. The only thing I felt was not ideal was there was not enough washrooms/showers for the number of beds, they were often all occupied. The location of the hostel was great, lots of good restaurants within walking distance.

I stayed there only one night. I reserved a coed room bed as I always stayed at a male-only room at hostels and I was curious. As the travel date approached, I started worrying, what if all roommates are girls? When I arrived, I found only a young and very pleasant girl was staying in the room with 3 dudes. I was kind of relieved. I didn't communicate a lot with fellow hostelers as I needed to leave there early morning, but I saw the owner/manager talking with other hostelers a lot at a breakfast table. Looked like a good place if you enjoy socializing. The area had many charming old houses. Apparently, the area is LGBTQ friendly, and I saw a lot of vibrant bars.

Very friendly check-in and all staff were helpful and made you feel at home. It's a beautiful old building on the edge of the Museum District and a $1.25 bus ride (exact money needed) from city centre ... lots of eating places, supermarket and the must visit Half Price Bookshop on doorstop ... can't comment on dorms but double room had a coffee machine and on-site bathroom was good ... standard free breakfast for HI hostels was good ...cereals, fruit, hard boiled eggs, pancakes and toast with coffee and tea available throughout day ... what more can you hope for ... oh yes, they have a swimming pool!

The service desk is open 24/7 which was an automatic plus when I was searching for a place to stay for the night. I unexpectedly needed a place to stay at about 11:30pm on a FRIDAY! I called, and the gentleman who answered the phone was very kind, and told me there were a few beds available in the all female dorm. Check in was very easy. The female dorms are a separate building in the back of the property - set up like a carriage house. There are two levels. I am not sure if the bottom level was all female as well, I stayed upstairs. It featured a private deck, and inside there were 3 sets of bunk beds and a locker assigned to each bed. There was a window unit to control the temperature. Breakfast is complimentary and is served from 7-10 each morning. There are plenty of indoor and outdoor spaces to sit and chill, use the free wifi, and meet other guests. From the property, I was easily able (about 75 minute trip) to take two buses to the Houston Hobby Airport. The buses accept cash ($1.25) and the first stop is two blocks from the hostel. If you are unsure of navigation you can use the Moveit app which is extremely user friendly. Otherwise, a Lyft would have cost me about $23. My total cost for a Friday night in the female dorm was just over $35 dollars. If I find myself back in Houston, I would stay here again.
