I heard very positive things about HI-Houston Morty Rich and was very pleased that my experience matched my expectations. The dorm rooms were spotlessly clean, with comfy, sturdy beds, but what really surprised me was the quality of the furniture in the common area: I usually expect slightly beat up old sofas at a hostel, but here we had plush leather sofas and fancy coffee tables. All in all, a truly excellent spot and I would definitely come back.

It was quite clear to those staying that an inspection was coming because we felt pushed around and were treated rudely when asking for things like a new towel or even water at breakfast. My last night they were banging away putting things on walls and installing soup dispensers etc until 3am. All this and our room out the back had an out of order bathroom for my entire stay and was later told they had forgotten to call the plumber...priorities.
