Needing just a place to sleep for the night, this hostel serves the purpose. At minimal cost, I had a bed with clean sheets, clean bathroom, wi-fi, access to microwave, refrigerator, etc. Coffee in the morning reading the local paper. Free parking right outside of the rooms. Sort of a home away from home. I highly recommend if you don't need luxuries like a sauna, pool, etc.

I stayed at the new downtown Music City Hostel a couple of weeks ago with friends and absolutely LOVED IT! It was much bigger than I thought with a spacious chill out area, all open plan with the kitchen and reception area, which is also the laundry area too. FREE WI-FI and there's also 3-4 computers available to use too.
We stayed int he Patsy Cline room, i love how all the rooms are named after famous artists! There's a choice of private bathrooms or female bathrooms with clean showers, toilets, sink etc...all really spacious.
The location is fantastic - you're a 5min walk from downtown Nashville where all the cool bars are and also where the Country Music Hall of Fame Museum is too, and the Ryman - everything is right on your doorstep.
The staff are really helpful, if a little too laid back, but i think that's the deep south in general, i'm from the UK so not used to that! Ha! I liked the fact that they had their 'quiet rule' on the floors where the dorms are, you had to be quiet after 10pm so you could go party all night, and even carry on in main reception area! And no one in bed would be bothered.
Amazing value for money - i highly recommend peeps! I will most definitely be returning!

I recently stayed at the new downtown location on 1st Avenue North. The staff were great when we had any questions or needed help and they were all really nice and we'd become friends with a few of them. The lounge area was big and spacious- a few seating areas, dining table, tv, and piano. The kitchen was probably one of the best kitchens I've seen in a hostel- spacious and well equipped. Rooms were big as well, only thing was there were no mirrors or hooks because obviously the place is new and they're still fixing the place up, but those were minor details. Location was amazing, close to Broadway and easy to navigate.

The only negatives were- you had to pay for a towel and for luggage storage.

Would definitely stay here again!

Simply among the best hostels anywhere.

There are two hostels in Nashville - operated by the same people - and I've stayed at both. So I thought i'd just review the two of them at the same time.

I'm originally from Scotland, but am now based in Atlanta. I've traveled pretty extensively throughout Europe and the USA, and have stayed at Music City Hostel and the new Downtown Nashville Hostel several times. Both hostels, in my opinion, are among the best I've stayed in.

The owner, Ron, always makes you feel welcome and the hostels have a great atmosphere. Being in Nashville a lot of the people staying there are songwriters, singers or musicians, which means you're never short of music! The hostels have pianos, guitars and various other instruments for the guests to use, but the music areas are far enough away from the guest rooms so they don't disturb your sleep. They also have quiet hours between 11pm-8am.

The Downtown Hostel is a great location if you want to party. It's around 3 minutes walk from Broadway (the main bar/club/ music area of Nashville) and is right on the river with some really nice views. Music City Hostel - the other location - is around10 minutes walk from Music Row (the music business area of Nashville), so if you're in town on business that's the place to be.

I've always found both hostels to be clean and tidy and the staff to be very helpful. As I'm from the UK my standards are pretty high; but I've never really found any reason for complaint at either of these hostels.

Sometimes the hostel can make your whole trip. I've always had a great time at these places. I think you will too.
