This was a great little hostel situated in a great neighbourhood, close to shops, restaurants and cafe's. Had a very homely feel and staff were great. The rooms & bathroom was very clean. Beds were very comfortable. Could have easily stayed longer if I'd had more time.

Our stay was fantastic. We were in town for a covention, and the hostel provided the perfect home away from home. We camped in the spacious backyard; worked in the air conditioned lounge room; and, cooked in the well stocked kitchen. People there were so friendly. One guest cooked us meatloaf!! 3o min walk from a grocery store. 10 min... More

After being moved from one room to another after 2 nights, I took one of the comforters with me because it has been comfortable and I figured that it would just go into the laundry and wouldn't be needed for the guest that day, After I went out and locked my door behind me with the key I rented, when...

IHMGMT, Manager at Indy Hostel, responded to this review

As you may guess we were very surprised by this review especially as it stands alone against our typical feedback of extreme attention to cleanliness. We took some time to investigate our cleaning procedure and asked guests who have stayed, particularly those in the room in question, and have again found very favorable responses. Many of our guests are first... More

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
