Excellent hostel, in a very good location, very clean , the bedroom was big and had the own bathroom, near everything and the host was very nice. The fireworks view from the roof was great! Thanks a lot!

Very helpfull and friendly staff. Large and clean rooms, with good bath and lavatory facilitys. The getaway hostel in Chicago, is the only hostel that i would say is better, that i have lived in, in the USA.


Great stay overall. Was disappointed by staff knowledge of walking tours and things to do at Niagara Falls when compared to the knowledge displayed at other larger US hostels.


Gorge View hostel is the best place to stay in Niagara Falls, NY. It's on the 3rd street which is pretty close to wonderful falls (10 mins by walk). Staff is so nice and always willing to help, dorms are cozy and clean and every room has its own bathroom. There is also one common room where you can meet other guests, have a little breakfast or watch TV. If you need wash your clothes you can do it in laundry room. And one last amazing thing to do - to watch fireworks over the falls from the roof.


Everything about this place is excellent. It's a 10 minute walk to the Rainbow Bridge where you can cross the border into Canada to see the falls. I cannot recommend this place enough to people going to Niagara Falls. Thank you Jeff for picking me up from the bus stop too. Excellent host!

Thanks for staying with us and I'm so glad you got the most out of your trip visiting two countries walking from one Hostel is just what we expect everyone to do.... experience the up close personal experience visiting the falls from the US side provides and see the immensity of it from Canada's distant vistas not to mention the illumination is wonderful from that side. No thanks necessary, you know the bus stop was so close anyway. Happy trails!


Very good place, super clean and organized, very well located


I love here! This place was so nice! But it's a little inconvenient because they dont have stove and pot to cook sth. Except that, everything was perfect.!

Thanks for taking the time to provide us honest feedback and we are glad you found most everything to be great. We agree a stove is needed and we hope to have a totally new kitchen next season. We have however added a gas grill with a stove burner to our back patio to provide a wider variety of food preparation options to our guests.


Definitely the best option in Niagara Falls :-) Everything was just perfect!

You were such a wonderful guest and we are glad you got to fully experience the wonders of Niagara Falls in the way we hope everyone will. There is so much more natural wonder and beauty to behold beyond just the falls. I hope your journey through the US continued to be awesome.
