“The Place To Stay In Cleveland”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

The Cleveland Hostel has got to be the one place you should come and stay at if you are visiting Cleveland!!
The hostel is very clean, the rooms are very spaciouse with a reasonable sized locker for each bunk. The staff are also very friendly and happy to help guests with anything, all in all it is also a great place to meet other travellers, and it's also in a great location ith a number of breweries and bars/pubs very close to the hostel itself.

If visiting Cleveland for the first time, the hostel is only a 15/20 minute walk to downton and surrounding areas with plenty of things to do, including The Rock And Roll museum which is a must see attraction.

I would definately recomend this as a place to stay!

This hostel is SUPREMELY clean and well kept. The staff was very friendly, and the overall atmosphere is great. They offer bunk-style rooms for extremely cheap rates, and they have private rooms that are FAR superior to cheap roadside motels (for the same price). As others have mentioned, it's right in the market district, and it is surrounded by bars, restaurants and breweries. There is no reason to stay anywhere else in Cleveland.

Location, Location, Location. The Cleveland Hostel is 1 block from the Cleveland Transit system, 1 block from the famous Market, 2 blocks from Flying Fig and multiple shops on the street. The facility is so clean with fresh lovely towels and wash cloths. We had a wonderful 3 hour afternoon dining with food from Cleveland Market on the top deck. If you are unable to do stairs I do not recommend this facility as everything is a flight up.

Room Tip: The rooms are large and beds comfortable. Rates are reasonable.

Clean rooms, nice common areas, roof deck, close to bars, etc.
Be careful to confirm the rate- even if they email you a confirmation with nightly rate it is subject to change based on the room # they assign you.
DO NOT PARK IN THE LOT ACROSS THE STREET! Six cars broken into the night I stayed there- most belonged to guests of the hostel. Be careful- it's Cleveland. Despite what some people will tell you, it's still dangerous even in the Ohio City area where the hostel is located. Sketchy characters hanging around, trash cans overturned nightly, etc.

We went to Cleveland March 18 for an Indians game. We decided to spend the night so we could enjoy the West Side Market the next day. It was a night game, so by the time we got out of the game, all we needed to do was lay down our heads, as we would be going right down the block to the West Side Cafe for breakfast.

The fare to the game, round trip, was $1 in the Great Lakes Brewing Co.'s eco-friendly (runs on vegetable oil) shuttle! Making a purchase at the Brewery in trade for the $1 fare was a pleasure.

Do not be put off by the term "Hostel". This place is clean, modern and fit the bill to a T. It is in a very hip neighborhood, is extremely eco-friendly (wind up alarm clock, no TV, radio, or in-room fridge/microwave), secure and safe. For those leftover culinary treats you will bring back for a late night snack, use the full-feature, fully stocked kitchen! But please clean up after yourself.. there is NO maid service, no washcloths (there were towels) and no toiletries provided.

The neighborhood is not full of loud, rowdy night life, but it does have enough going on to make you want to return to the superb Ohio City.

The Hostel's rooftop patio has THE most amazing view of Cleveland's skyline I have ever seen. Why pay an extra $50-200 more for a generic room that provides continental breakfast and trial size shampoo? Do yourself a favor, experience the coolest Cleveland scene and perhaps meet some wordly travelers while you are at it.

I had NO problems AT ALL and will likely return.

Room Tip: If you can, stay on the 3rd floor, so you are right near the rooftop patio.

Somehow my partner and I have become seniors. It wasn't planned but it happened. Keeping age in mind he questioned whether a hostel would be the right place for us in our initial visit to Cleveland.
We have to say The Cleveland Hostel was a great choice for us. You can choose to share a room and a bath or to take a room with a private bath. We chose the latter and for 75 dollars a night got a clean room with a nice bath..shower, which was fine with us...and easy access to a shared kitchen. We did not use the kitchen but we saw some of the children...okay, twenty somethings...making use of the facilities. You can buy food and cook in or pick up take out. The only requirement is that you clean up after yourself. Seems fair.
The location is terrific. Ohio City is a section of Cleveland that is undergoing a renaissance . Lots of hip bars and restaurants. We liked the neighborhood so much that we ate at three different restaurants in the area rather than taking the car to downtown Cleveland. Parking is a cinch by the way...free and right across the street.
Driving to the sights in Cleveland was easy. Although if you don't have a car there is a public rail service about a block away.
Both the owner, Mark, and his second in command, Michelle, were happy to help with directions and suggestions as to what to see in town...don't miss the Cleveland Museum of Art which has combined their older building with a stunning modern addition. The art was fine but we were more impressed with the architecture of the buildings.
This hostel is a great find for both young and old travelers.

This European style hostel is very conveniently located (on the main strip of Ohio City-many amazing restaurants with great happy hour food options, West Side Market, Dave’s Supermarket, public transit [RTA red line station], nice mile walk to Lolly the Trolley-excellent 2 hour sightseeing tour).
Huge, comfortable, clean, beautifully designed kitchen, dinning area, and social/community interaction area on the second floor. Great roof deck area that has tables/chairs and an amazing view (it was a little chilly during our trip, but would be a great space to unwind). Good security (front door key card access). Private rooms, four person rooms with private bath, and larger shared rooms available (price variations). We did a four person room with private bath (two bunk beds) $27 per person. Because it off season, we ended up having the room to ourselves (the other two beds were open). Low census so noise was not an issue. However, if you are a light/medium sleeper you may want to bring ear plugs. Great stay in a wonderfully unique hostel! We highly recommend it and look forward to our next stay.
