The Indy hostel was clean, comfortable, had a full kitchen, good art on the walls, friendly staff members, backyard had a grill, music stage, very spacious, and it was in a cool neighborhood just outside the city.

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.

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!
