One of the most welcoming hostels I've ever stayed in. Great people, amazing vibes! On the bus home to Toronto now wishing I was back in the D at Hostel Detroit!
Excellent hostel and friendly staff! We stayed as a large group, and all the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. They offered us lots of advice of places to eat and visit. Located in a nice area, not far from lots of nice bars and restaurants on Michigan Ave, which leads into Downtown Detroit. Hostel also has plenty of kitchen space to cook. Would recommend this hostel to anyone!
It's the only hostel, and that's just fine. Awesome place! This was a great place to stay and explore Detroit from. A great crew of guests of varying ages and from all over, and a really great crew of managers and staff. Stay here, see the town, have some fun.
The rooms/beds were quiet and comfortable. The common area and kitchen is well kept and well equipped. The location is quiet, and safe, with Michigan Avenue restaurants and bars (Slows Bbq, Mercury Bar) close by. The grocery store is a bit of a hike past Michigan Avenue, but still walkable. The closest beer store is still a pretty short walk, but it takes you a little closer to an area where someone might ask you why you're there (and did in fact)... But hey, all part of the experience, and worth the trip to have a beer. Maybe just take a friend if you're heading there at night. Downtown is a bit of a walk, but just fine for a day trip.
Ignore the detractors who may tell you (at the Detroit/Windsor border no less) that you are an idiot for staying in a hostel in Detroit. The city's bad rap lives on. But it's a great place to check out, a very cool mix of old and new, abandoned and pristine. And Hostel Detroit is a great home base to see it from.
Home feelings at Hostel Detroit. Home is where the heart is . When travel around , hostel just is hostel . Sometimes just feel I was like a homeless from one hostel to another hostel . However , Hostel Detroit is the one make me feel like home . The owner really try their best to do the best . Cozy room, unique TV room , luge kitchroom , even have printer ... Clean warm and sweet ...
Great place to stay. Awesome place, friendly staff, even got a lift to the Greyhound Station when I couldn't get a taxi. 20 minute walk to downtown, great place to stay if in Detroit for a night or two. Free parking on the street if you have a car which is a plus.
The perfect no-nonsense, comfort and convenience kind of a place. We popped in to Detroit just for one night to see the new Frida and Diego exhibit at the DIA and were pleasantly surprised by how easy the booking/checking-in/checking-out process was. The location was perfect as you're so close to Astro Cafe, Slow's BBQ, little Mexico and the Two James Distillery. Parking is no problem (as with most parts of Detroit) and we were greeted really warmly when we arrived. All in all, this was a perfect place for us to enjoy Detroit from. Highly recommended.
Looking forward to my third stay at Hostel Detroit. No better place to stay while visiting the D.
