Quite a nice hostel with great friendly staff. Bedroom was a bit small, struggled for space for everyones cases! The bed wasn't the comfiest either. However the hostel had a great vibe and atmosphere - I wish I'd had more time to spend in it to meet other travellers but on the 1 night I did I had a blast....

After staying at the downtown hostel and loving it, I decided to stay at one of "Ron's other hostels." Music city is conveniently located to the baptist hospital and Vanderbilt campus. This hostel is more of a home atmosphere and less of the party scene which I really enjoyed! Ron and his wife are awesome and lovely! You can walk...

This was one of the worst hostels we stayed in. Staff were very rude, snatching alcohol out of our hands despite them sitting there themselves drinking. People were loud, inconsiderate and very unfriendly. Rooms very stuffy with plastic sheet on matress. We forked out of our shrinking budget and stayed in a hotel one night. Did not enjoy it at...

Second visit to this hostel and things sure changed. They opened a new branch Downtown so the Midtown location is no party hostel. Was visiting with my girlfriend this time so we enjoyed the quit times and serenity vibe of this place. Clean rooms and nice patio, about 20min from Downtown by foot and free parking on the street and...

Came to Nashvile for a conference. The conference hotel was overpriced and overbooked, so I opted for a private room at this hostel instead for all 4 nights for less than half of what the hotel would've cost. Despite the fact that I arrived from the airport after 11pm on a Saturday night, the staff person on duty was welcoming...

My friend and I stayed here for 4 nights and had a fab time. The hostel has a great location and is an easy stroll to bars, restaurants, music and groceries. The staff were friendly, helpful and fun while the hostel itself was clean, spacious and had a really laid back atmosphere. Great suggestions of things to do/where to go...

I've stayed at this hostel several times over several years. Always a great time, good area, Walgreens is just a block or so away. It is a little ways from downtown, but not bad. The last time staying I'd been coming in after a pretty rough time - really appreciated the hospitality and easy going time there. There's limited off...

Music City Hostel (on Patterson St.) was the first Nashville stop on our tour. The managers, Gary and Mirthe, are welcoming, informative, and reliable. That's already more than I can say for most hotels I've been in. Rooms/Bathrooms were clean, the patio is a great spot for music jams. Internet's decent - and free! I felt at home here as...

I was doing a musical trip with 2 friends. We call to the hostel from Nashville's airport without a reservation. The reception was brillant. People are very cool. I made friendship with a lot of people from all around the world. It's not very near the centre. But you can walk 25 minutes to the bars in Broadway. Probably it...
