Excellent hostel. Love the personal welcome & introduction! Clean, friendly, & all within walking distance. Everything you need is available in the area plus laundry facilities on site. Came for a couple of nights & stayed a week! Reasonably priced.

I have no major complaints about this hostel. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the bathrooms were clean, and the place was very secure. My two friends and I had a private room. The bathrooms are in the hall and were cleaned regularly. They have private bathrooms with a toilet, sink and shower stall. If those were in use,...

We were meant to stay 3 nights but our overnight greyhound bus from Chicago got cancelled and we couldn't contact the hostel about getting a refund for the first night we were there we found our after we'd left they wouldnt give us a refund for something that was out of our control.

NDH was awesome. The staff were lovely, the place was super clean and the kitchen facilities was a big highlight. I have stayed in my fair share of hostels and this one was definitely up there. It has such a chilled out vibe and is in a great location for exploring or partying!

I stayed here for two nights in August and found the staff friendly/helpful throughout. The location is within easy walking distance of downtown restaurants/bars, plus the Megabus stop. The whole premises are well-kept and communal area has a positive vibe. The dorms, including bathrooms, are well-kept. Although the hostel appeared to be quieter during my stay, I still met lots...

Look up parking beforehand. The library parking garage has a great price and it's close. The hostel houses a lot of people. The kitchen was huge and well equipped. They have free tea and coffee. The beds were very comfortable and the room is quiet. It's close to Broadway, so location is great. It's a nice place and you can...

The hostel is literally about 5 minutes from Broadway, so is in a really great location. The staff there were very friendly and helpful. The rooms weren't huge, but the beds were fine. The only thing was that they didn't provide any towels, which was a bit of a pain, as you were hoping your towel had dried before you...
