Hostel Buffalo Niagara
Hostel Buffalo-Niagara is a great base for visiting Niagara Falls, one of the top travel destinations in North America. As Rough Guide USA puts it, 'Once you've seen Niagara Falls, from as many different angles as you can manage, there's no point in sticking around, and you'll have a better time heading on to Buffalo.' There is frequent city bus service from Buffalo to The Falls, round trip fare $4. Take your passport along (and visa if required) so you'll be able to enjoy the Canadian side as well.
Desk hours 8-10:30AM & 4-10:30PM.
There is no lockout or curfew for registered guests.
Our modern, clean, safe and friendly hostel offers a perfect relaxing homestead. Along with our friendly Buffalonian staff full of local knowledge about shows and things going on in the community, the hostel has as spacious lounges, a fully equipped kitchen, a book exchange, a free store, bicycle loans, laundry facilities, free WiFi and a little movie room in the basement (run on sentence :).
We are located in the heart of Buffalo's Theater District right next door to the Town Ballroom and Buffalo Visitor Center, across from Shea's Performing Arts, as well as down the street from the First Niagara Center and Buffalo-Niagara Conference Center.
The hostel is a short walk from Historic Allentown and the Chippewa Strip where live music and nightlife is ample. A 10 minute walk from the infamous Anchor Bar where Buffalo chicken wings were invented.
As New York's second largest city, Buffalo is known world-wide for its architectural treasures; only Chicago boasts a larger collection of buildings by America's foremost architects. In addition, renowned father of American landscape architecture Fredrick Law Olmsted who designed Central Park also designed Buffalo's park system where the acclaimed Albright-Knox Art Gallery boasts one of the top modern collections in the world.
A combination of a big city with small town warmth make Buffalo a relaxing place to spend some time and explore. Indeed, many travelers stay a few days but may stay several days longer than originally planned once they discover the city and its people.
Whether you're coming in town for a concert, conference, hockey or footaball game, to explore or to take the bar exam ;)... Come stay with us at Hostel Buffalo-Niagara!
We do not have a curfew or lockouts and desk hours are from 8am to 10.30am and from 5pm to 10.30pm.
