Truly one of the most enjoyable and committed hostel I know of. I stayed two nights in a spacious dormitory. Everything was clean, the kitchen stocked with everything you need, the living area extremely comfortable, the staff helpful and committed. The house breathes history and is very atmospheric. There are rumours that the city of Buffalo plans to sell the...

Excellent place for a overnight or a few days. The staff is great, the location is very good too. The cleaning, the space in the bathrooms and bedrooms is good too. All this with a good price. The hostel has a good kitchen and a excellent community room.

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,...

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...

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!
