The place is without professional staff. The door codes are available to everyone and frankly I felt unsafe there. The owner Ivan is a weird guy who constantly hits on everyone. He is a divorced guy who thinks he is the "big boss." The place is run down from my last visit as his full time guy Josh left. The... More

Failure to cancel within this time will result in a cancellation charge equal to the first night... More

Don't stay here if you want to explore Dallas, it's just too far. Use booking.com pay ten dollars more and get a hotel in the centre. I really regret staying here. It was clean and comfy but meant I was restricted on where I could explore.......

Perhaps its helpful that they changed their name. It took me a good deal of searching on TripAdvisor to find them, and then it was by their street address. But either way, there are no rooms. The place is decent. I don't so much mind the plastic sheets others talked about. There is wifi, a kitchen, washing machines, and a... More

I cannot stress how much you shouldn't stay here. You're better off finding a cheap hotel or motel. It was dirty, disorganized, smelly, far away from the city, and just generally terrible. There was no check-in desk and even though we had booked online the guy who "served" us (if you can call it service) had no clue what was... More

I got to the hostel from DFW by public transport only to find no employees around. Thankfully there was a guest that stayed in that night and he let me in. It was initially very weird because I didn't have to check in with anyone, just pick a bed and make myself at home. It's not a bad thing, just... More

One of the worst hostels I've ever stayed in. The whole place is in need of a thorough clean, particularly the bathroom. The plastic sheets on the bed are extremely noisy. The common area in the middle of the bedrooms was in costant noisy use, particularly by the employees. We didn't know who the owner was until we were ready... More

The attention of Carlos and Ivan was very cordial. I was only a couple of hours visiting Dallas. I couldn´t sleep in the hostel, but it seems a good place to hang out a few days. One thing to keep in mind, in my case I visited Dallas and I had a connecting flight to another state in the morning.... More

This hostel is more like a house! Very comfortable. Easy to get around but train is expensive. Stayed for 3 nights, was lon enough. Staff were friendly, sometimes a bit too much.

“I can't. There are better rooms, but you aren't guaranteed to get them, even if you pay in advance.”

“Pay attention with the public transportation first - u$s 2,35 a daytrip - if you choose a cab will cost you about 30/35 bucks from the hostel to the airport. It´s more expensive than the hostel stay itself.”
