Loved the neighborhood! Hostel is fairly new and well-kept. Has good variety of room types and enjoyable lounge. Staff were usually very friendly and helpful. They care about the condition of the hostel, and offer good extras, such as free storage for bags and breakfast. Would definitely stay again.
The best part about this hostel was that it had pretty comfy beds. Other than that, it was in a bit of a shifty neighborhood and you had to walk a ways to decent services. The lounge was nice, and kitchen facilities were good, but the place was generally run down and not what I was expecting. Let's also randomize codes on room doors, as its pretty easy to figure out the codes.
Loved the semi-private rooms, each with air conditioners. Value for New York was awesome! Very close to tons of diners, shops, and the subway. Lobby was always busy with people. Staff was average, not overly friendly. Would definitely stay again.
I was a little worried at first because this seems to be the only hostel in Buffalo. However, the facilities were clean, comfortable, and the staff was friendly and helpful! I had a great stay.
