I loved staying here. It’s not a hotel, so you have to keep that in mind. It was like a clean dorm. Great people, clean, and pretty quiet.

It was very clean and well run. Good wifi connection which I needed for work. Could use some modernizing but for $30 per night you can't ask for more. I will stay again if I return to Buffalo. I drove and found parking for 2 blocks away for 30/night.

Poor 2.0
I was told I would have a locked room for me and my stuff and share a bathroom. I swung past earlier in the day and saw that was a lie. I couldn't trust the residents of that Room to treat myself and my stuff safely. They charged me when I had cancelled within 12 hours if making the reservation. Then when I called back for shelter they said they had a complaint about me and said I couldn't t stay even though I paid for it. I simply saw it wasn't safe for me or my stuff and canceled. I had stored my stuff elsewhere when I called back. The whole experience sucked.

First time at a hostel
I stayed here for 2 days, visiting town for New Years Eve. I've never stayed in a hostel before. That said, it was a bit weird for me just because I'm used to hotels and not a hostel. Check in was easy. There is a passcode required to get inside the building and the code changes daily, which is nice because then you know a random person who isn't staying there can't just walk in. Parking was a challenge. Yes I was visiting on a holiday weekend. Maybe that had something to do with it. I don't know. But be prepared to walk with your luggage and be prepared to pay for parking. I managed to find a free spot on the street on my first night which was still a bit of a hike, and had to find a spot in a parking garage a few blocks away the second night. It is what it's a city and parking will be limited. There are limited spots on the same street as the hostel and they're marked as 2 hour parking. The inside of the hostel really did look like a home. There was a living room, a rec room in the basement, the kitchen had 2 stoves, 2 refrigerators, free coffee and oatmeal, utensils for cooking and dishes, etc. There is a computer in the lobby. The tv in the basement has netflix. Washing machines are available. Wifi was unreliable on 3rd flr but fine on all other floors. The staff was very nice. The only weird thing for me was sharing a room with other people but again, that's what you get with a hostel. Privacy is limited but it's a cheaper option than a hotel.
