We had wanted to go to Detroit for awhile, and so when we planned a six week trip of the U.S. we made sure we were there for two days (one night). I was happy to find that there was a Hostel and was interested by the concept - I read about the "educational mission" on their website and thought... More

We popped in to Detroit just for one night to see the new Frida and Diego exhibit at the DIA and were pleasantly surprised by how easy the booking/checking-in/checking-out process was. The location was perfect as you're so close to Astro Cafe, Slow's BBQ, little Mexico and the Two James Distillery. Parking is no problem (as with most parts of... More

I went to other hostel at Seattle, Vancouver, Toronto and Chicago, too. Hostel Detroit was my worst hostel. I came there around 9:30 PM - 10:00 PM and met manager there. Then I had to make up my bed in Open Dorm. Other hostels made bed for guests. I was surprised that there 10 bunks in one room and don't... More

Sometimes guests do not follow them on weekends because they may have enjoyed Detroit's nightlife a little too much. I wish you would of brought this to our night manager's attention when it happened. We would of rectified your... More

Awesome place, friendly staff, even got a lift to the Greyhound Station when I couldn't get a taxi. 20 minute walk to downtown, great place to stay if in Detroit for a night or two. Free parking on the street if you have a car which is a plus.

Don't let the looks of the neighborhood scare you away!This is an awesome place to stay and I will go back. The people were very friendly. They have a gated area for parking behind the house. Very close to downtown.

It's been said already by other reviewers. But this was a great place to stay and explore Detroit from. A great crew of guests of varying ages and from all over, and a really great crew of managers and staff. Stay here, see the town, have some fun. The rooms/beds were quiet and comfortable. The common area and kitchen is... More

Great hostel! Staff is the best ever!! Atmosphere is like you are at your own place. It has different living rooms, so if you want to hang out with people you are fine, but if you want to stay alone and relax you also can! Beds are comfortable and shower is hot and has abundant water! Great place! Highly recommended!... More

We stayed as a large group, and all the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. They offered us lots of advice of places to eat and visit. Located in a nice area, not far from lots of nice bars and restaurants on Michigan Ave, which leads into Downtown Detroit. Hostel also has plenty of kitchen space to cook. Would recommend... More
