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

Overall had a good time and would recommend it to others. Positives: Great location in Cooper-Young neighborhood, several great restaurants, a BBQ place, and a coffee house within blocks. Daily chore took 5-10 minutes (sweeping bathroom floor, disinfecting doorknobs, wiping down kitchen tables.). Liked that those easy tasks saved us $10 on the room. Always had an available bathroom and... More

The location is good if you want to go to cozy places that locals go. If you're interested in going Downtown or to Beale St it is a rather long and expensive taxi ride. Public transportation is extremely limited. For what Memphis offers, it's great but can be a little inconvenient.

I stayed for one night in January in the hostel - it was a nice stay. The staff at the reception were very friendly and helpful! The dorms are not that crowded with beds, but the bed were not that comfortable! It is in a nice neighbourhood and it's no problem to park the car next to the hostel for... More

It seems like some reviewers thought they were paying $45 to stay at a luxury hotel downtown. The Pilgrim House is just what they claim to be. First of all, I loved the part of town it's in. We walked around and enjoyed the coffee shops and stores in the neighborhood. In the morning, there was breakfast items out. Coffee,... More

Conversing over Email, the Place seem to be just what we were looking, Upon arriving, we had to read through and sign about millions rules to do with the hostel, drinking and sorts of other rubbish. We were then instructed we would be doing some sort of cleaning activity each day and upon questioning what this might be we got... More
