Don't trust the shuttle bus back to the hostel from the station outside its scheduled trips. I called the hostel to see if I could get a ride back one evening and was told it would be a few minutes. I waited for half an hour and called 10+ times to see where the bus was - it didn't show up and no one answered the phone.

Great hostel. Quite quiet when I stayed (it was midweek so not a lot of people there) but the staff are really friendly and the hostel is massive - great kitchen and it has a library! The location is slightly further away from downtown than would be ideal, however there is a bus that goes from pretty much right outside the hostel so not an issue.

Great to find a hostel with a pool! The main house could do with more bathrooms and make sure you package any food you keep in the kitchen well - they do get some bugs.

Great hostel! Most people staying there were a lot calmer than expected for a weekend in New Orleans' French quarter but it's really clean, all the staff are really friendly (especially Ashley and the girl who pointed me in the direction of the Clover Grill for hangover food - didn't get her name unfortunately) and the location is perfect.

good, although I wasn't there long enough to get a real idea of the atmosphere thanks to a delayed train!

Great hostel, huge common room, although quite a bit further away from Dallas than I was expecting - however there's a direct train into the city only a 10 minute walk from the hostel.

Awesome hostel! My boyfriend and I stayed for a week to attend a festival. The staff were awesome, really friendly and helpful, and the hostel was great. It's got 2 locations just down the road from each other and the one we stayed in was great - we had a huge private room for $13 each per night. The common room and rooftop area were loads of fun and it's in a great location a couple of minutes from the blue line for the subway - I can't recommend this hostel highly enough!

The lcoation of the hostel was great and the staff were really friendly, however, the lock on the door of the dorm I was staying in didn't work - I was constantly having to go up and down stairs for someone to let me into the room - and there was only one shower/toilet/sink between 10 people.

Loved this hostel - very clean, very comfy, good location, great staff - only problem was that is was a little on the expensive side, but totally worth it.

Nice hostel and very friendly, helpful staff, but the aircon was broken in the middle of a HUGE heatwave in Washington DC - plus although they say their renovations are complete, they seemed to be ongoing while I was there.

Excellent location and very friendly staff and guests, but the rooms were pretty dirty - very dusty. Bathrooms were OK but again not the cleanest.
