Liked: Easy to get to from the bus station. Homely atmosphere. Very friendly staff. Nice and quiet during night so you can get a restful sleep

Disliked: The showers are not very private having only a curtain rather than cubicle. The hostel website is very old with incorrect information on it which isn't helpful

Liked: Super secure. A little too much after my room card stopped working and i was stuck for a few hours in the arvo as staff don't work during the day. In my pjs... Room was spacious. Good tv area in the basement (not a lot to do in Buffalo at night) some classic VHS tapes that will make you feel nostalgic.

Liked: It is very well located downtown and close to the subway. I've stayed at the Buffalo Hostel a number of times and liked it. Also on HostelBookers.com it says that there is an extra $3 fee for non hostel members but I have never had to pay this. I think this may be a mistake about the Buffalo Hostel which I think is independantly run and not YHA.

Disliked: I only had one problem this trip which was my key didn't work when I went back to the hostel in the afternoon. No was the desk until 5pm since they have limited hours being a small hostel. I unfortunately had to kill time until later to get the problem with my key fixed. The front desk person apologized and fixed my key so it was nothing major.

Liked: The hostel had a big kitchen and livingroom and also a basement with TV, pool table and darts.

Disliked: some parts of the hostel look brand new, while other things look very old. For instance, the beds were old and squeaky and the couches were quite old but the kitchen and hallway looked fresh and clean

Liked: I liked the kitchen- and dining-area. It was very nice and set up in a way that inspired contact between travellers. The dorms sound big (12 beds), but the rooms sound large and intelligently shaped, so they don't really feel overcrowded.

Disliked: Nothing really; it's very easy to get to and the price is okay for what you get. I would totally recommend the hostel to other people. What I simply would not recommend unless you got a reason to go there is Buffalo as a city from a tourist point of view. The architecture is great indeed, but the town is rather depressing, so you don't really feel inspired to walk around there. The area seemed quite good to party and get drunk however.
