Very clean and welcoming hostel! My only experience with hostels had been when I was broke in my early 20s. I wanted to take my brother to a concert and have a place to crash afterwards. We got a private room with bunk beds for about $60, and locked parking for an additional $5. The hosts were helpful and personable. Restrooms were very clean. My brother feasted on free breakfast items including waffles, bread and PB, and oatmeal. Whole bean dark roast coffee with creamer for me. $8 Lyft ride to the concert venue. Books and movies (on VHS!) for entertainment. I highly recommend it for travelers on a budget, or who want to try something new!

As hostels go this place was alright. Quiet rooms, reasonable showers, friendly staff. It's a little rundown but they seem to be making improvements gradually. Worst part is the neighborhood which is alternately like a ghost town and a ghetto. Very isolated unless you have a car or a bike. Will probably be much better in 5 years after the Michigan Central Depot building gets up and running. Dealing with the lock for the fence was probably the most annoying part, so if they are looking to upgrade anything I would suggest they get a retractable sliding fence with a key code like they have at storage facilities. A lot easier than dealing with the combination lock and swinging gates when you are trying to get back at midnight in the rain. I'm getting too old for hostels anyway. The young people here were pretty annoying to watch in the common areas as they tried to flirt and impress each other while pretending to be themselves.

Set in Corktown, Detroit, Michigan, Hostel Detroit served as my first Hostel visit late August/September 2019. Overall Hostel Detroit successfully met my expectations as a stylish, clean, affordable inn. Easy check in and check out process, access to complimentary breakfast items, including coffee, as well as free computer/printer usage- these and other benefits made Hostel Detroit a great place to stay. Other perks included friendly associates and roommates with free tours and information on things to do in the city. The highlight of this property, I think, was the modern interior design, and outside decor, including beautiful flowers lining the fenced parking lot.

This is such a great hostel! I stayed in the 10 person room for $20 a night. The hostel has small lockers in the room where you can lock up your valuables. The beds were okay, and everything was clean. A highlight was the Saturday morning tour. Kevin and his girlfriend Marta were great guides through Detroit! Since I was going to take a later downtown walking tour, Kevin took me to other points of interest: the Eastern Market including an awesome printing shop where I bought some art, Sister Pie in the Villages for delicious slices of chocolate and peanut butter pie and honey lemon meringue pie. And coffee! Then over to the Heidelberg Project which was one of the coolest outdoor art experiences I’ve ever had. The artist Tyree was there himself, and Kevin gave me some history of the project and specific pieces. I took tons of pictures and particularly loved the You house and the sun dial with reclaimed bricks. Then we journeyed over to Belle Isle park where there was a surprise aquarium! Well it was a surprise to me, Kevin and Marta knew it was there. It was small, but the green tile work throughout made you feel like you were semi aquatic. They had Marlin, Dory and Nemo type fishes in one display. And seahorses! We waved at Canada, and then Kevin and Marta dropped me off at where I wanted to go to lunch near my next tour. On the drive over, they gave me advice on places to go in Madrid (where Marta is from). They were so nice and friendly. Very knowledgeable about the area. The other people staying at the hostel were also great! I made friends with two Canadians and three Germans in the common room as we played cards. We went out together to see a great many of Detroits delights. As a solo traveler, it was great to have the true hostel experience of meeting up with random people and going on adventures! 10/10, would recommend!
