I stayed in the Indy Hostel for 4 nights. During my stay I had nothing but good experiences, the staff were friendly, inclusive, helpful and willing to pass on their knowledge of the area and of fun things to do. Having stayed at other hostels around the US I would compare the Indy Hostel very favourably with the others. It... More

We came in from Ohio for a concert. Location was very close to local bars and restaurants. Addison was very helpful and the hostel was very clean. Walls are thin so bring headphones to sleep. We were only there overnight but would definitely go back.

My friends and I work with the non-profit organization Liberty in North Korea. We gave an event at Indy Hostel and they gave us a comfortable, dry place to sleep. The hostel is super nice, clean, and the people who work here are really kind. The hostel is in an old house so it has a lot of character to... More

I just stayed there with a group of friend and had a blast. The staff was very awesome and accommodating. They always made sure we were comfortable and had what we needed. The location was in walking distance to some bars and restaurants. The staff was very knowledgeable of the area and had suggestions for any type of outing that... More

I stayed at the Indy Hostel during Gen Con Indy and was pleased on all counts. I actually pitched a tent in the back yard but still had full use of the house facilities including kitchen, library, living room and bathrooms. The staff is very friendly and helpful and it is only a few minutes walk to a bus stop... More

Aloha! I just recently stayed at The Indy Hostel from July 31st-August 12th, 2014. I was picked up by hostel staff from the airport for only $45 which is cheaper than taking a taxi, so definitely opt in for that! I was working at the fair and since it was only about a mile a walk everyday it saved me... More

It was a very nice stay. We were there to attend an event in town and stayed for two nights, so we did not have time to interact much with the other guests and staff. But everybody was very friendly. My husband and I stayed in a private room with a private bathroom. We had no concerns. There are some... More

Indy Hostel is a marvelous place to explore Indianapolis. As a Dutch I had to do this by bicycle and the trails in Indy are great. Hostel service is excellent and the people are awesome. Whenever I will visit the DCI World Championships again in Indy, I know where to stay. So, five stars for the Indy Hostel. Of course,... More
