“Best place to stay in Nashville for travelers, young people, and musicians”
Reviewed 27 August 2013 via mobile

I stayed here while traveling with a friend and had a great experience.. it was really clean and super cheap. The staff is super friendly, and will be happy to point you in the right direction whether it be food, drink, or music. It is so close to Broadway (maybe a minute walk), that making trips from there back to the hostel couldn't be more convenient. Also, it overlooks the Cumberland river which also has a pretty nice park sorry of place to walk through. Don't forget to bring your instrument, everyone there is paying music in the common area most hours of the day and will be happy to play. I highly recommend this place

This hostel is a gem! I came in late at night at they were so helpful from the get go! The whole hostel is clean and modern. I was in a 4 bed dorm and never had any noise issues the whole 3 nights I stayed. The kitchen facilities are awesome and the common room was open 24/7 so there was always somewhere to hang out! There are shared single-sex bathrooms as well as individual unisex ones. The bathrooms were impeccably clean the whole time I was there which was so impressive. Above all, the staff we so friendly and helpful at giving you advice on all the best places to visit in Nashville. Speaking of which, the location is the BEST. There's always someone to hang out with in the common room and meet up to go out with, which is great for the solo traveller. Yes, there are no lockers in the room, but Ijust locked my valuables in my pack when I went out. And there is no breakfast included, but the kitchen facilities will have you itching to cook up a storm every morning anyway!!

Room Tip: As for a room with an outside window as some rooms are 'inner rooms' and only have windows o...

The best looking hostel I've been to, ever. The staff is really friendly and let me go up to my room before 2pm on my check in day since it was already clean. I had amazing roommates, really comfortable bed and nice and big showers. It ismissing one thing though, lockers in each room for everyone. I would stay there again and I reconmend that sweet hostel to anybody ;)

The hostel was incredible. The staff were hugely welcoming, giving us a tour of the place after we had checked in. The bathrooms are shared, but there are individual unisex ones, and single-sex larger ones; they were all impeccably clean, the entire time.

Unlike other hostels I have stayed in, this one has a real community feel to it. With Nashville being the musical city that it is, there was always someone strumming a guitar or playing the piano in the common area. There was also plenty of opportunity for quiet time as each floor in the building has a small lounge area where you can sit and chill.

The location is amazing, about a 2min walk (if that!) from Broadway, and there is a cheap car park ($12 for 24hrs) across the street. All in all a perfect place to stay!

I loved stayed here. It was very reasonable and very clean and nice. I loved the location and accessibility to the highway. Loved all the other fun things that was within walking distance. Once you park your car, you have no reason to get in it again. Close to bars, restaurants, grocery store, shops, basically everything you want to do! The other guests were very respectful and fun to talk to.The employees were nice and helpful also!

We loved this hostel! It's 2 min walking distance from broadway where everything is happening. Right by the lake with a beautiful view at sunset. The common area is awesome with lots of couches, games and a large size share kitchen. The staff were amazing, told us the good places to go and what to do. We got a twin private room which ended up being two bunk beds so two extra beds. The share bathrooms were extremely clean. Only downside is everyone seems to shower at the same time so was a bit of a wait every morning to get in there. Would highly recommend this hostel to anyone looking to make friends and be in the heart of Nashville.
