Check-in was easy, and I was greeted warmly with a tour of the property. Everything was clean and accurate to the listing. Unfortunately, I was only able to spend one night here and not longer. I either missed the check-out procedures or forgot them so I apologize for just leaving the towel & sheets on the bed. If I return...

My friend booked us at this hostel. I've never stayed at one before. I really didn't know what to expect, but didn't have high expectations. The dude that checked us in, Rob, was very nice. The place smelled great, there were bikes to rent for free, a clean hot tub, free computer/internet use, clean linens and rooms, clean shower, and...

Anyway, always see this option on the travel sites, so decided to check it out for myself! It is one of the coolest places ever with one of the most friendly owners!!! Got there, kind of later...

The Wayfaring Buckeye Hostel is truly a gem in the city of Columbus and I have been recommending it to everyone that I know.

Was lucky enough to stay in the new tiny cabin on the property. Must say it was an awesome adventure. I'm new overall to the tiny home idea but it was definitely something I would do again. Spent some time in the hostel as well and was very pleased with the overall mood and attitude of not only the staff...

I was transitioning to the Columbus area for work and found this gem online. The pricing is reasonable and very fair considering everything you receive while staying at this super clean hostel located in vibrant Columbus, Ohio.

I had a FANTASTIC experience at the Wayfaring Buckeye Hostel. I was in Columbus for a couple days visiting a friend at OSU. I paid about $25/night, but I have to say the hostel is worth more than just $25/night! I could write on and on about all of the amenities of this hostel, but I will try to keep...

My son and I were visiting OSU and stayed at the hostel. We had a great time and really appreciated the accommodations. Robbie is a great host, very helpful and nice to talk with. Do your research and know what you are getting when you book at a hostel. We took Uber most days, which costs us less than $7...
