A very friendly and well-situated hostel. The free continental breakfast seemed to run out of groceries the longer we stayed (no milk for dry cereal on the third day?!?). A picture for the private room would have alleviated disappointment at the spartan digs, but the price was right. The setting in the park, next to the brand new (free!) art museum can’t be beat.

Fantastic hostel, very detailed lounge and cool history on the firehouse itself. I slept well and had no problems with checking out, super easy. There were friendly people I met. Clara, maci, and mach were all cool peeps who helped me on my stay. Also, big thanks to the manager working out my booking date error. Thanks for being a compassionate person! Would definitely book here again.

Sue, the volunteer at front desk, was kind & welcoming. She even helped me find a sushi restaurant nearby. I’m a 60 year old woman traveling solo - first time in a hostel - and I really loved the experience. I had the entire female bunk room to myself - which was ok - I did get a brief chat with the other visitors (male) during breakfast which was very nice. Church right across the street so I can get Sunday service before hitting the road again. Great experience

It's a hostel and a museum; I was there when it was a bit more quiet maybe because I checked in on a Sunday and in early March but I'd stay here if I found myself in Little Rock AR again.

Liked: Cleanliness
For a small town, this was a fair stay for 1 night. Agree with other reviews. There was more to desire with staff. Sounds like system was down and they took my info on a sticky note. After several Uber drives, they did not recommend me to walk around, not the safest neighborhood.

Yes, it’s a hostel. Their description needs updating, and note there’s no elevator. There’s a first-floor dorm, but it’s co-ed.

i liked the nostaliga, if only the employees could appreciate it. i really like the idea behind the hostel, but again the staff needs to be a little more involved. the general manager, james was great and helpful. i was actually disappointed that i had no roommates until the last night. i felt very safe and was comfortable and i definitely plan to stay again. i also like that side of north little rock.
