This place is the best. I stay here at least once a week because I have to commute to Columbus from Dayton for work. Robbie is an excellent host and will go out of his way to make sure you have everything you need (to give an example I just heard him offer to wake up at 4:30am to call... More

This place was a great spot close to everything I wanted to do in Columbus. It was very clean and the host was very friendly! There are two kitchens, so cooking was a breeze. The hot tub was a nice surprise. I will definitely visit again when I am in Columbus.

I arrived in the evening to a barking dog whose owner had apparently left. I awoke in the morning to the same dog and this time he was growling; I left immediately. Since when do hostels allow dogs and dogs unchaperoned? Egads, you got to be kidding me.

My friend and I stayed in the private room; this was our first time staying in a hostel. Robbie was very accommodating, friendly, helpful, and welcoming. The living areas are very nice, our room was clean, and our bed as very comfortable. The atmosphere of this hostel simply feels like home. It was a wonderful stay!

Perfect place to stay in Columbus. Lots of comfortable living area, clean rooms/beds, friendly and accommodating staff, and a great value. Was in town for only one night, but I will be looking this place up again any time I come to town. I felt at home.

I stayed here over Easter a month ago. It was an amazing place to stay. The house was very clean, and it really felt like home. Parking is plentiful, I never tried to park behind the house because I found plentiful parking on the street. Wifi was quick and stable, and towels were provided as well. Robbie was a great... More

Very clean and surprisingly quiet for an in city location. Two kitchens as well as ample sitting areas and bathrooms. Locks secured the rooms by use of pass... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the Wayfaring buckeye...in terms of location its great if your scene is hitting the college bars. The hospitality was great, also fantastic facilities! The WiFi was top notch as well.

this hostel is great! really comfortable bedrooms, clean, cozy living rooms to hang out and amazingly friendly staff (and other guests ;))! the location (university district) is cool, just 15 minutes to walk to ohio state which means that there are a bunch of bars and restaurants around. when we left we actually wanted to take a taxi downtown but...
