Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This location was what I expected and worth my $25. I only needed a place to spend the night and leave early in the morning. It is an old home, very communal, old sheets and bedding but overall a real attempt to have things clean. If you are looking for hotel clean and private this is not your stop. If you don't mind communal living in an old funky house to stay for a bit you will be fine. Mimi is a very sweet host and was very helpful.

  • we are not really happy to have choose this room
    its good for student , not for traveller
    room isn t clean
    there is no breakfast
    the courtyard is clutted
    so we think it s too much expensive in compare the quality

    December 2013
  • Pros: Good location next to downtown and restaurants/bars
    Mimi was pleasant
    CONS: We booked the Buddha private room. It was rundown, not dirty but didn't seem clean. Definitely not an inviting space. Our room didn't have a way to lock the door.
    We ended up spending the night in a hotel (which was cheaper).

  • Mimi very kindly accommodated an unexpectedly late check-in. The hostel is in a great location in Gainesville, and the grounds are gorgeous and peaceful. Highly recommended.
