What travellers think
Travellers that stayed here think this hostel is best for
- Unique atmosphere
The hostel is in an excellent location-close to the art museums and theater, which is what I value. It was clean and the staff was helpful with directions, etc. I had trouble sleeping because the room was too cold. The air conditioner was kept on at too high of a temperature. Also, the staff played the radio way too loud in the evening. I couldn't sit in the common area and read because it was too loud. I had to go into my room and shut the door to get away from the noise.

Love the Morty Rich House!!

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.

Warmer covers on the beds. Also night time & morning quiet times posted would be good for sleep.

With the door rooms I wish there was an enforced quiet policy until 8a. Even for those eating breakfast to keep things down until that time. I loved the private room. It was clean, quiet bliss.
