2/10 Poor

There are hidden extra charges when you are checking in. Expedia was kind enough to reimburse for those charges. I have been to many hostels. This was the worse experience. The female dorm is tiny to fit in 6 people. The staff don’t clean the shared bathroom area daily. It’s also in the middle of nowhere, so you can’t walk to major sights. The Houston transit is very infrequent so it’s hard traveling anywhere from the Hostel.
