Affordable and clean this is a great place to stay if you are traveling alone or with a friend. It's also located right in downtown so you can walk anywhere! A good place to stay while exploring Nashville.

Stayed for one night, having driven in the staff were very helpful getting the car parked nearby without too much fuss. The hostel was undergoing some renovations so smelt of fresh paint, however all facilities were new and provided everything we needed. The hostel is ridiculously close to many bars, clubs and restaurants, for a night out it would be ideal. Normally a hotel person I would happily visit again.

6 of us-all women stayed here. only 3 of us had stayed in hostel before so other 3 were nervous. place was clean, newly renovated areas great, washrooms clean, building secure, cost great, staff nice and helpful even though they appeared very busy all the time. hostel is work in progress due to renovations-they are doing great job with this old building-so glad we had opportunity to stay here! if I was going to nit pick I would say: rooms a little stuffy at times (we kept our door open a lot when in room which didn't bother us), mattress little noisy, would benefit from air freshener in lobby. That's it!!

I've stayed at many hostels worldwide and I think this is the best. Great kitchen facilities. very, very clean. very safe. very friendly and you're right in the heart of it. And the community room even has a piano in tune! very clean showers. nice quiet spaces, and spacious. I will always stay here when I visit Nashville.

Room Tip: they have a variety of rooms, Co-ed for 8 is what I selected and I had no problems.

The most chilled out, coolest and down to earth staff you'll ever meet!
The vibe this hostel had was amazing and the staff were so involved with all the travellers who stayed there.
The hostel is very roomy, clean and regularly up kept by the staff. They will tell you all the best places to go see and where to party!
Around the corner is a underground Pub called "The Beer Cellar" where you'll find over 90 beers on tap! Amazing stuff!!
And dont forget to ask one of the staff members called "Steve" to show you the video of him getting hit by a car! ;) hehe
Miss you guys! Cant wait to come back again!

I've stayed at many hostels throughout the world, and Nashville Downtown Hostel is one of the tops!

The staff is friendly and very thoural (gave a full tour of the building and walked me up to the room…which was a nice touch). The common area is incredibly clean, welcoming, and lots of extras to entertain you (including board games, 'beer fridge', etc). Lots of fridge space and pots / pans for cooking.

We rented a private 8 person room for 8 of us that were visiting for the half marathon. We were on the third floor, which was brand new…everything was spotless and clean! Only hoping they keep it that way!! Bathrooms were great (there were two private bathrooms and a shared bathroom with 4 showers).

Location could not be more perfect. I will 100% check availability here before a hotel next time I'm in Nashville.

Thanks for the great visit!

Room Tip: Third floor is new!

This hostel is located at a very convenient location, pretty much next door to everything. However, booking a room is a real challenge. The building is really neat and the lounge downstairs has a pool table, a kitchen and several guitars. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
