HI Houston, The Morty Rich Hostel is located on a beautiful tree lined boulevard in the diverse and funky neighborhood of Montrose. Close to public transportation, bars, restaurants and coffee shops, the hostel is the perfect place to call home during your visit to Houston. Houston was named as the most diverse city in America by Forbes magazine and our neighborhood is a great example of that diversity.

The hostel is a beautiful historic mansion once owned by a City of Houston Mayor. Beat the Texas heat by taking a dip in our outdoor pool and dry off in the shade of the gazebo. Relax in our cozy hammock or come inside and bond with other travelers in our living room and TV room. Our helpful staff will show you Houston’s hidden gems, like crawfish boils and icehouses turned bars. Spend a day wandering through Houston’s famous Museum District with 20 museums and galleries or take a day trip out to Space Center Houston, the official visitors’ center of NASA’s Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center.

With daily free breakfast, WiFi and volunteer-led tours, HI Houston offers travelers all the amenities needed to make your trip to Houston pleasant and memorable. Whether you’re in town for a conference, festival or sporting event, HI Houston can help you make the most of your time in our unique city.
