This hostel will restore your faith not only in hostels, but in humanity!!!
A bold statement yes, but certainly a true one.
After arriving in Buffalo on the GreyHound, getting off to snow, ice, and pitch black with empty streets looking like a scene from a disaster movie (where did everyone go?), we finally staggered through the cold and found the hostel.
On walking through the toasty warm door we were warmly welcomed by the sweetest woman I have ever met - imagine all those sweet grandmothers you see in TV movies ~ that was her!
She ushered us in, checked us in with no problems, and told us all about getting to Niagra falls (including a handy map and bus routes).
She then loaded us up with blankets and sent us to our room.
The hostel was quite empty, but rather than shoving everyone in one room to save cleaning, she gave my girlfriend and I our own one!
The hostel was quite modern and clinical, but very very clean with a cosey sitting area leading onto a nice kitchen.
Buffalo in itself is not the most jumping town off season, but a funky little cinema next door and a restaurant serving the most delicious eggs benedict certified it as a lovely place to be.
Overall the hostel was fantastic - just try to refrain from hugging the lovely owner!
