This place met our needs; we were looking for somewhere walking distance to the tourist area on Broadway and was also an acceptable one night stay as we were really just passing through town. The room, sheets and shower were clean. The parking lot was crowded, but we were able to squeeze in. We didn't have the opportunity to meet... More

Clean, comfortable hostel with really friendly staff!! Nice 20min walk from downtown Nashville, much cheaper than we could find anywhere for that area! Really nice communal dining area, so got to meet a few other travellers there for the love of country music, which made Nashville even better!!!

Pros: - Not many hostels in Nashville, and this is one of them - Easy parking - Friendly staff - Walls are rather thin. Could hear a lot of conversations next door - Little communal areas in each building are a nice touch, with ample power cords - Decent location close to Vanderbilt, Music Row, trendy restaurants Cons: - Not...

I had to go to Vanderbilt recently for a meeting and decided I would stay in a hostel for the first time in about 30 years....lol, I'm 55! I'm so glad I did. Everyone was very pleasant and the place was very clean and comfortable. I met some very nice folks and enjoyed my stay. Will definitely be back!

There weren't too many people here when I stayed, I got offered a free upgrade to the downtown location where there were more guests however as there was no parking available there I declined it. The room I stayed in had been newly painted and the owners even made a point of being there when I arrived to welcome me.... More

My friend and I stayed here in October. It was a nice, quiet, and clean hostel. The staff were friendly and gave good tips on where to eat, what to see, etc. It's located about 15-20 minutes walk from downtown, which I didn't really care for. The dorm rooms felt secure because of the key codes, which was a nice... More

Myself and a few friends stayed there this past summer. The hostel was really nice, but most of the staff were really unfriendly. They acted like we were in their way the whole time. there was one guy on staff that actually treated us like human beings. I think his name was phil. He was nice and showed us around... More

Stayed here in March 2015 and it was awesome. Met some awesome people, it was a 15 minute walk to downtown, clean and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. I tell my friends about this place and next time I come back down from Canada I will make sure I stay here again.

Not downtown, but that makes parking easy. Restaurants and supermarket at walking distance. You can walk to downtown too although I took a taxi. Rooms have a code lock unless you get the room without a door (the curtain room). Instruments are avaliable in the common area. When this had to be closed at 11pm, but our party hadn't ended...
