An amazing hostel in general. Definitely one of my top so far. Houston is a little difficult in the winter, cause there's terrible public transit options-- but the bike share would make the summer easy, and Lyft/Uber are options for the winter. The beds were a little hard to sleep on, but it was very clean and well-maintained. The staff were great!!!

A nice quiet street, handy to supermarket, one block down from good bus route. From George Bush IAH airport terminal C catch the 102 bus to Milam St, from there the 82 to Westheimer and get off @ Whitney. Bus drivers are friendly/helpful. Further along Westheimer to Galleria Mall.

Lage und Pool sind absolut wunderbar! Sauberkeit im Essraum könnte noch ein wenig besser sein! Aber alles in allem kommen wir sehr gern wieder! Ich werde Euch einer Praktikantin, die nach Texas geht, weiterempfehlen.
