Having just completed a cross-country trip during which I stayed in hostels for the first time in my life, I can only say that Pilgrim House sets the bar high. The resident assistants live on site, which means they have a personal stake in seeing that the place is clean, safe and comfortable. Great neighborhood in the Cooper Young area,... More

The staff are super friendly, the hostel has everything you need. you should not let the daily chore deter you, its very very easy. The beds were really comfortable. the kitchen is huge. Also you shouldn't be worried about not being allowed alcohol, there is a bar around the corner.

This hostel was perfectly nice, very good price for what it's worth. The hostel has a strange chore system where you leave a small deposit and do a chore a day such as cleaning the barstools in the kitchen, otherwise you don't get your deposit when you leave. Bit silly but hey, what can you do. The bathrooms are private... More

First stay at a hostel with friends, lobby was interesting a lot of employees just sitting around, we were initially sure what to do but the sleeping areas were very clean and comfy and the outdoor patio was amazing. A lot cheaper then a hotel definitely worth the price

One of the problem if you are staying at this hostel is the location. If you have no car, you have to take the bus. And do not trust the bus system in Memphis. On the week end, it stops too early. But you have goods bar and restaurants close to the hostel. The hostel is on the average. Good... More

After being shown our room we booked another place to stay. Finding it. We drove around the block a few times as there is only a tiny sign out front. No sign to the parking at all and nothing on the door to enter when you eventually find it. There is a mystery code and no bell to alert them... More

Located a fair way from the main sights (they have bikes for rent and there are also bus connections to downtown), I had a very pleasant stay at this hostel. The rooms were nothing special, just back to basics - clean and comfortable. There is a large kitchen and dining area which you can store your food at, and cooking... More

Stayed here in November of last year. Really impressed! Bit of trouble with the code for the door but after that plain sailing. Friendly staff, clean rooms, good cooking facilities. Everything you could ask for, really. Don't be intimidated if you're not a devout Christian, these guys aren't in your face about that side to it.

I'm a little late on this review, but I feel it's important to give them a good review, even this late. I checked in to the hostel with no problem and was greeted by a very helpful staff of one. Later on when I had a question regarding the shower area, a young lady was also very helpful and makes... More

We stayed in here back in May. It was a little difficult to get into the hostel as we didn't have the code. Luckily for us one of the workers was outside and let us in. We were originally give a really tiny private room that was really hot, but I saw that a nicer one (still small) was free... More
