Having stayed in hostels before, the Cleveland hostel didn’t really feel like a hostel at all! The building was clean, the rooms were spacious, the staff were friendly and the highlight would have to be the rooftop patio, which provided an amazing view of the Celevelands skyline. The hostel is also in a cool neighbourhood with lots of great bars... More

Came in to celebrate husband's birthday at Great lakes Brewery. The room was clean and ready we we arrived. The handicap restroom next to our 1st floor room was huge and clean also. What a gem and central to everything! Very modern feel

Very nice hostel -- clean, modern and laid-back. I liked the roof deck and the huge kitchen. It was too cold to hang out up on the roof this time of year but there are some great skyline views. There's a supermarket and a transit station very close to the hostel, and a ton of restaurants/bars (I don't know much... More

I would never stay at this hotel again. No elevator, hotter than Hades in our room and no thermostat, no way to even get a drink of water because no cups. Horrible hotel. That's just the start of what's wrong with this place. Total waste of money.

I stayed at the Cleveland Hostel frequently for work in the area. From the rooftop to the kitchen and lounge area, this facility is gorgeous. I've stayed in both private rooms and dorms, and had great experiences every time - the private rooms are some of the nicest I've ever stayed in, let alone as a budget option. You literally... More

Friendly, smart staff. Warm and welcoming. Super clean! Comfy queen bed in our private room. Wonderful rooftop deck. Extra blankets. Nice bathrooms. Full kitchen. This was the perfect choice for us....loved it.

I have traveled all over the world. One consistent disappointment I have when traveling the States is the lack of quality budget lodging. Hostels have yet to become a normative means of accommodation here despite their popularity everywhere else in the world. Thankfully, that's no longer the case for Cleveland. The Cleveland Hostel is ideally located in the hip neighborhood... More

My girlfriend and I went on our Hall of Fame tour and she recommended that we stay in the Cleveland Hostel after doing some research. It fit the bill for what we needed. First and most important it was clean and safe. We had a private room and it was a little small for but works for people who know... More

The Cleveland Hostel is privately owned. While not a hotel, it's a cut above a youth hostel with everything from bunk rooms with the bath down the hall to private rooms with bath. My wife and I stayed in one of the latter. Rooms came with sheets, towels and blankets, and we were offered additional towels by the cleaning lady.... More

Stayed here Aug 22-24. On the morning of the 23rd both my daughter and I left our private room to use the bathrooms. Upon our return to the room, neither of our key cards would work. We were locked out for nearly an hour, both in our pjs, before a staff person arrived to the front desk. There was no... More

Hello, thank you for staying with us at The Cleveland Hostel. Being a small young owner operated business your business means a great deal to us. I am very sorry that our key card system malfunctioned during your stay. The front desk agent made news keys, and went up to the room with the guest to personally make sure that... More
