This is a Trusted Review. Why?

This is, as others have remarked, possibly the best hostel you will ever stay in.
We stayed in room 9 - a spacious double with ensuite - and it was great. Did need
some more furniture though! Tables, shelves, places to put stuff badly needed.
The staff were charming and helpful.The communal kitchen was a delight - lots of cooking equipment and a four gas ring hob, and an oven. Dining room was good, and breakfast
was pleasant.
There is an excellent and very large supermarket 2 blocks away.

It is easily reached from the airport by two buses, each ride costing $1.25. It will take about
2 hours to get in, but probably less.
It is within 30 minutes walk of the museum district.

So, if you are going to Houston, stay here. You won't regret it.
