Liked: I've tried at least 30 hostels in my travels and Hostel Buffalo Niagara takes the #1 spot!When I first came up North from New York City, the hostel completely blew me away. Never mind the security card access (which can sometimes be a pain but made you feel super safe)bathe toilets, bedroom, beds, kitchen and the staff were absolutely amazing. Not to mention how close it was to the city center and the great bars but I'd recommend walking up to Elmwood.The staff really knew what they were doing, hauling food supplies into the common area, drawing on maps to make out all the awesome spots to visit, advising about free tours and answering my queries on the Niagara Falls.The level of cleanliness here is insane! I absolutely loved the hostel and would definitely be back with Hostel Buffalo Niagara because I promised myself yet another visit to the falls and there's really no place else I'd want to stay in.There is everything to love about this place, be here and you'll know why.

Disliked: My only grumble was the security access card because I locked myself out while showering. But that is not anybody's fault but mine so there's absolutely nothing to dislike at all!
