Little Rock Firehouse Hostel is a small, quiet hostel near downtown Little Rock. The facilities were clean and the staff very friendly. While it wasn't very busy, it was a good option for a budget-conscious traveler. It was in a good location that made it easy to walk to both Main St. and downtown by the riverfront. It was a perfect spot for a brief weekend trip away from home.
