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!

I just hated this place, the area is dodgy, there are "no go areas" in short walking distance where you might get mugged, robbed or even shot. i couldn't sleep the most of the night, because the bed is worn, room is worn, just the bath was clean. this is the reason why i can leave a 1-star-rating eventhough there...

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

I stayed at Hostel Detroit for an entire month and I am better for it! I am a medical student from Chicago and was in Detroit on an away rotation. I needed an affordable place to stay that would also introduce me to the city and Hostel Detroit definitely fit the bill. The Dorm: I stayed in the dorm which... More

Hostel Detroit is a hostel, that is true. It has beds and a kitchen, a floor or two, and all the things that make you say, hmm, I'm pretty sure I'm in a hostel right now. But if you think that's all that makes a hostel great then you obviously have never been to Hostel Detroit, and you should go... More
