The location is great the staff are lovely and there is such a chilled out vibe throughout. There is free tea and coffee and the beds are soon comfortable. You feel secure throughout with the security card and the lockers. One other things that often lacks in hostels. The bathrooms are really smart and so spacious!! Great location near bars,... More

Great place to explore Buffalo! Prime location in the center with close access to public transportation (including airport express bus). The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable and the rooms and common areas are lovingly decorated and clean. They even have bikes available. Explore the city or bike to Niagara Falls (cross bridge to. Canada, bring passport)!

This is my second time staying here, and I came to Buffalo to see 4th of July fireworks. Staff was really responsive even when my ID card stopped working at 2am, and they always gave me tips on things to see and what to do. They even put up with my mom calling to check in on me. I love... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and this is 1 of the best places I have ever stayed at. Hotel, Motel, Resort, Hostel anything. The service from the staff was incredible - in a pretty great area. Don't write many reviews but felt compelled to write 1 for this spot.

Clean, friendly and helpful staff and well decorated! They were super accommodating to our group of 14 students, 5 adults and two babies. The staff is friendly and helpful and we love that they support community events. I would definitely stay here again!

12 minute walk or a quick streetcar ride from the heart of downtown Buffalo and the Sabres arena. The price is great, the hostel is super clean, cozy, and comfortable as well. The staff are very nice people who genuinely love their city and ensuring their guests have a great visit. Would recommend this place to anyone looking to spend... More

I had such a wonderful time at this hostel. John went the extra mile and helped me load my bike into the cab and also let me build a VR bubble. I also love that they had VHS cassettes. Would recommend to anyone. Very close to Babeveille where I saw Joanna Newsom. Also, got to experience a Caga Tio.

The staff were always helpful. The rooms were clean, the showers too. The kitchen is fully equipped, even for baking! There is plenty of fridge space to store stuff. There is complimentary coffee, oatmeal and even raisins! There is a very cosy dining/lounge area. Also laundry facilities which is most helpful. They will even lend you umbrellas! The only thing...

It was 10 USD and it was good enough for me, as I was just stopping by, resting and getting a shower before carrying... More
