Location: I said it's good because I was going to catch a flight, it is about 20 mins to the airport. (I drove). For sight seeing, not so much. Staff: I didn't see a single person from this hostel! Experience one of a kind, totally DIY. I like it actually, I have no question need to ask or be asked. Nobody to check you in, nobody check you out. They charged my credit card automatically. (Fairly speaking, I arrived after 10pm and left before 4am) Cleaniness: feels like slept on a plastic sheet.

One of the dirtiest hostels I have stayed in. Sheets were clean but that was about it. The owner was helpful and friendly but the hostel needs updating.


Good location, safe neighborhood convenient to trains into Dallas/Ft Worth.


The owner Ivan was super accommodating and very friendly. He told us some great places to go in Dallas and made sure we were well set up with everything we needed. The hostel was full, but he didn't turn us away; he had a second location where he let us sleep. The security was great. Overall, really great experience.

Ivan is amazing, very helpful and attentive. The hostel is simple but well in Texan style, makes you feel at home. A great place to stay if around Dallas. I recommend it.

Thanks for taking a minute to provide us with your feedback, glad you and your companion had a good time. You needed a ride and we provided you with one. Happy Travels! Ivan


I liked this hostel and its Wild West atmosphere. It was close to the train and I was able to visit both downtown Dallas and Fort Worth Stockyards on the same day!! There was extra security lock for the female dorm, which they had just installed. I got to meet some cool world travelers, place was welcoming and clean. I'm a vegetarian and I was able to cook a meal for myself, kitchen was fully stocked!. Would recommend and use it again when in Dallas!

Considering the Dallas area, this is a good deal. Pros: Nearby Irving Dart-station, transportation for Dallas downtown is easy More like a private home Cons: In the dormitory the top bunk right in front of the door is too hot because of the AC system. The bottom bunk was too cold. I guess the other bunks are good. Some pillows need to be replaced

Wild bill sniffing panties and drinking cough medicine all day! Enough said!


It is not in Dallas as you search Dallass' hostels. It is in Irving downtown, but it is cool to use the DART train. The beds was almost dangerous by placing bed over the other so all the night I was afraid may the upper bed fall on me. The sheets was unclean. The blankets was almost used for months without cleaning it. The weather was cold at night without turning the heat on till the early morning. The


when i arrived in the place there wasnt any staff to receive me, there was no sheets in the bed and when i left they didnt know how much i should pay.
