I recently drove around US, visited 22 states and stayed in many different hotels and motels. After staying at Indy Hostel I wish there was a Hostel like this everywhere I travel to. Very clean rooms and bed and very friendly staff totally made my stay feel like home. I also met amazing people during my stay.

Very friendly & social environment. Staff are always helpful. Good location. I have stayed here twice and will stay here again. The bathrooms are roomy and clean. I even got a twin size (rather than a single size) bunk bed last time!

This is what a hostel should be. Great location and access to bike paths that can take you anywhere in the city. Immediate area has great bars/restaurants/venues. Clean, welcoming, and reliable. Thanks to Paul and crew for making our stay amazing.

We had a great stay. The hostel was super clean and staff was very friendly. They always had recommendations on what was going on that day. We were in the monument room, which is the only room with a private bath. I would stay here again!

Indy Hostel is like many hostels throughout the world, inexpensive housing, common areas, and often close to metropolitan areas. But they take it a step further. They are very community oriented, planning festivals and neighborhood clean ups, as well as a popular story telling series. There are the usual group rooms, but private and family-sized rooms are available as well.... More

I came from St. Lucia to visit a friend and spend some time away from family drama. It was great! The staff is very friendly and does their best to help out however way they can. No matter what kind of views or culture you come from they were fairly respectful and not judgmental. The rooms are ok but the... More

I was looking for a place to accommodate my sister and her husband who are coming to Indy in May. I read very good reviews about Indy Hostel and I decided to visit the place. Everything looked good and I decided to make a reservation. I paid the 20% deposit to confirm and hold my reservation. After 2 days I... More

We certainly wish that this would have worked out better and we felt that with our offer of a much nicer accommodation, a higher value with breakfast included, was a fair consolation. An ample amount of time has been given to adjust and we hope that Giorgio and his sister have a great time in Indianapolis. It is very rare... More

I decided to take my girlfriend up to Indianapolis for Valentine's day weekend 2015 and I must say we had a wonderful time. The staff was very friendly, they assisted me in buying a bottle of champagne and a bouquet of flowers for the special lady. She was so surprised! We had the monument room and found the accommodations to... More
