Due to torrential rain I opted to stay in Music City Hostel rather than camp - arrived at very short notice and the staff were more than helpful. The hostel itself is a series of buildings divided up into different rooms. Everything was lovely and warm, a little ramshakle but ultimately incredibly cosy. Good, hot showers with excellent pressure and a kitchen facilities for cooking, as well as a lounge area with piano and guitars littered around, should the mood strike the more talented traveller;)
The main draw for this hostel is the location. A $7 taxi ride from the downtown Nashville gets you to the hostel. I do not believe there are any hostels closer to the city than this. Everyone was very friendly and it felt like a very safe place (and I'm a single female traveller).
Negative points for expensive washer/dryer and internet services and I would imagine in a more humid heat, the dorms would feel a little more claustrophobic. Aside from that, I would definitely recommend this hostel to any young, musically-interested traveller, looking for something a bit different in Nashville!:)
