We are a small independent hostel and we encourage you to book us direct.  Third party booking sites charge us high commissions so we keep our most affordable beds off sites like, Hostelworld, etc. We offer private rooms and cozy dorms (our largest dorm is just 5 people max).  We have mixed dorms and female-only dorms. Your experience with us will be personal unlike at larger hostels. We'll know you by first name even if you only stay 1 night. We like to have fun but this is not a party hostel, so we ask our guests to be mature and responsible. As the only hostel in Providence, Rhode Island, we are the most affordable accommodation option by far.  But we're not just a cheap place to sleep.  We provide a cozy home to gather, cook a meal together and feel a sense of community.  That's why we are consistently ranked one of the top accommodation options in Providence on both TripAdvisor and GoogleMaps.



We do not have 24 hour reception, so if you don't have a reservation, please call us. Do not just show up, as there may not be anyone there to great you. If you cannot check in by 9pm, you must contact us to make arrangements beforehand. There is a late check in fee of $20. We have a cat, so if you're allergic, check with us before making a reservation.
