They share lots of stories and do everything to ensure you get what you want out of your time in the city. There are also so many interesting travellers to meet. Travelling alone, it was easy to make friends and... More

What a great place to stay at! Simple yet charming. I was with a friend of mine and we chose to rent a private room with bunk beds. The beds were comfortable and there was even air conditioning! Kitchens were clean. It was nice to sit on the patio at night. There were 4 fully-equipped bathrooms well-kept by the employees.... More

This was my first experience with Detroit and a hostel. Both exceeded my expectations. I was concerned when I saw the abandoned Michigan Central Station and burned out areas in downtown, but this hostel was great and allowed me to be more open to Detroit in general. It is obviously an economically depressed area that is trying to recover. My... More

I opted for a private room, which was still very affordable. The hostel is located in the Corktown neighborhood, which is a hip part of town. It is an oddly intriguing area witha ton of character. I met a couple of cool people from all over the country while I was there. As for the property itself, you must be... More

Overall we enjoyed our stay at Hostel Detroit - it's an older building with cosy private rooms (didn't see dorms). We received a really warm welcome from Tim who gave us a bunch of suggestions for things to check out. There is a reasonable kitchen and a small common area based around a long table. Our only gripe was that... More

I couldn't rate my stay at Hostel Detroit more highly. Having travelled throughout the world, and working in the Hostel industry myself, I have experienced a lot of different hostels and Hostel Detroit met all my expectations. The staff were friendly, attentive and helpful. Their passion and enthusiasm for the city shone through and really helped me to make the... More

I can't lie and say that I wasn't slightly off-put when I pulled up to Hostel Detroit- the neighbourhood is starkly different than what I'm used to seeing at home in Toronto. However, I judged a fantastic book by it's neighbourhood cover- Hostel Detroit is awesome! I can't say enough great things about this place- great staff, walkable location, comfy... More

We stayed just two nights at Hostel Detroit, but had a really unforgettable time there! Evan and friends helped us to explore the city and shared a personal sight on many things happening there. The tour through the city with his car was a highlight!! The hostel was super clean, the location was nice, 15 min. walk to downtown, great... More

A superb location in Midtown and on the edge of Corktown. Reasonable rates and nice facility. Only complaint is lack of restroom/showers when folks are waking up in the morning. They have bikes you can rent and Detroit is a VERY bike friendly city. The streets of Midtown and downtown are full of people getting where they need to go... More

It was my first time visiting a hostel. It was really nice experience. I felt like I'm in home. The location was fantastic. The people was friendly. I parked my car safely in side where they have place to park.
