I stopped here for a night on my way through Houston. My friend had never stayed in a hostel before and thought it was pretty cool. I've stayed at many hostels abroad and this one is comparable to other HIs in Europe and Canada. We didn't really do much here but the dorm was nice, breakfast was okay, and staff was helpful/ friendly. I definitely recommend for a short trip

The facilities are nice, and the locations is great. Definitely recommend it and would stay again. I have stayed at different hostels and it has felt like the atmosphere was perfect and you leave making great friends; either through activities , or engagement of the staff with guests. This place did not feel that way. Maybe the guests at that time, the city, staff, I am not sure. But it felt a bit indifferent. Maybe just me. Overall great place.

The staff were the standout. Super helpful, with plenty of tips. Overall a nice hostel, decent breakfast options too. My only gripe is that the bathroom in my area was pretty grubby (I didn't see any others). Apart from that, I would definitely stay here again.

Had a really great stay at Hi. What an excellent location!!! Had a lot of fun going to Glitter bar for karaoke and Little Papa's seafood. Nasa was also such a fun outting. The breakfast food was not very good at Hi, the bunk beds creaked with little movement but that is the only reason the rating was not higher. But it is a hostel and half of the fun is to meet folks from all over the world! The staff was outstanding and super friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend Hi for your stay.

Everything was really nice and clean. They organized a pub crawl and everyone felt like a big family. Comfortable beds and great location with bars and restaurants nearby. By far one of the best hostels I've stayed at.

Please, please, clean and check up on your bathrooms more frequently. Urine in the shower. No soap in several of the most accessible bathrooms. The level of cleanliness was a deal-breaker for me. I couldn't feel at ease.

I love this place . . . .every time I have come to Houston I stay here. I have been around to many different Hostels, from Honolulu to Denver and I can say the Morty Rich is the cleanest and most well put organized of all the Hostels.

It is rather laid back place, well maintained and excellent hostel. Only problem is the bathroom, it smells, maybe air fresheners should do the trick. Also parking facility is limited and if you show up late you might need to content with street parking which is not safe, their (hostel staff's) words not mine.

This place is amazing. Close to Metro and Megabus station. Room was clean, with a nice mattress and big locker. Staff were friendly and provided great advice. I would recommend this place without a doubt. My only regret is that I stayed for one night.

Bad rating on FACILITIES relates singularly to the freaky heat and cold in room 2. All temp comes thru bathroom which is either hell-level hot or northpole-level cold. Staff knows about this PROBLEM, and still relies on victims to ask for adjustment each and every time. Admonition to keep balcony door shut is impossible to follow, thus costing hostel bucks on energy. Please work on this.

Excellent location for Houston. You can actually walk to many bars and restaurants.

Idk what to say. This is my second stay here. It has potential but bathrooms are really lacking for cleanliness. The tiny rug on the bed is supposed to be a blanket?? The staff are super hot and cold. Some are really nice and helpful and others not so much. Breakfast is lovely and all the open space is so nice. However, I barely got Two hours of sleep as the wall were so thin and a loud group of tawain people were like a herd of buffalo eating and packing to leave between 2 and 4 am. Byrs remrs
