I have stayed in 40+ hostels around the world and would easily place this hostel in the top 2 or 3. In many ways Hostel Detroit should easily win the hospitality award worldwide. The staff goes out of their way to help you find what you are looking for and is quick to include everybody in what they are doing.... More

This friendly urban retreat allowed us to have access to comfortable rooms decorated with care, a functional kitchen and a briefing on Detroit by open and accessible employees clearly passionate about their city. A special mention to the mobile restaurant Pink Flamingo that serves excellent meals in the hostel courtyard on Thursday night and to Kevin from the Ambassador program... More

A couple of miles outside of town makes this a good budget hostel. The area is quiet and dark at night so if you go out a taxi may be best to get back - felt totally safe however at all times but just quiet. Detroit is a wonderful place - don't listen to everything you hear about the place... More

Hostel Detroit locted in the shadows of the gutted train station in Detroit. Beyond that, I had a pleasant 3 night stay there. The staff was freindly, informative and service oriented. The hostel is functional, kitchen space, wifi, and clean. A 5 minute walk to Michigan Ave where a bit of an up and coming neighborhood with resteraunts and bars.... More

I've stayed in hostels all over the world, and this is up there with the best of them. The rooms are spacious and clean, there are a number of well equipped kitchens, and the staff are friendly, helpful, and well informed. Detroit has suffered a lot over the past fifty years or so and, as the border guard was very... More

Hostel detroit is the perfect place where to meet nice and outgoing people. Jeff is welcoming and can give you a lot of good suggestions to enjoy the city. Rooms are cleaned and well furnished, you can use the kitchen to cook and rent bikes to go to the downtown. We spent here 3 funny days!

This is easily the best hostel I have stayed at. The building itself is clean, beds are nice, lots of common areas. Bathrooms are some of the cleanest I have seen in a hostel, there are 3 fully equipped kitchens, and plenty of space to have a dinner gathering. Outside there is a yard, a secure bike area and ample... More

In terms of overall package this hostel is right up there with all that I've stayed in. Yes it's not in the centre of downtown, yes there isn't breakfast included and yes it's a hodge podge of rooms but the people make this place excellent. The Saturday drives are amazing and completely customizable to the desires of the visitors on... More
