Music City Hostel Reviews

Music City Hostel is a culmination of everything that the city of Nashville represents. A variety of travelers from all around the world creates this makeshift community that results in spontaneous jam sessions, late-night talks, and memorable experiences.

The Location

Music City Hostel is located on the West End of Nashville. This is the district where the hospitals are located, so you will often hear ambulance sirens, but other than that it is a very quiet community. It is a few blocks away from the nearest bus stop or main street, yet it is still extremely easy to find. It is less than a mile away from several attractions, including Centennial Park and Vanderbilt University. It is also within walking distance of downtown Nashville.

Rooms and Bathrooms

Most rooms are two bunks (four beds) per room with a small closet and nightstand to hold belongings. Private rooms and apartments are also available. The temperature is kept at an appropriate degree, but the fans can be noisy and moisture can stay in the building for a long time. Wi-Fi is available in all rooms. There is a password lock on each building, and an additional password lock on each room. However, it seems as if the passwords are never changed, and during our stay there, several former visitors came back and entered the rooms; the staff knew of this and did not seem to care. There are plenty of bathrooms so that you never have to wait long, and they are cleaned daily. Each bathroom is very small and only has one hook to hang your towel and clothes.

Common Spaces

Music City Hostel has an outdoor setting that is unique to hostels. The outdoor area has several chairs, tables, a fire pit, a porch, a barbecue, and a parking lot. This provides an area to socialize and meet new people, which is highly encouraged at this hostel. There is also an indoor commons area with a small kitchen, table, couch, television, washers, and computers. The computers and washers can be used at a fee. The kitchen, although mostly dominated by the staff's food, does have a place to store guest food, and also has a cabinet where a few foods are available for free. This room also has plenty of resources for travelers such as maps, newspapers, and info on cheap or free events around the town. Smoking is not allowed inside the building, but it is allowed on the porch, right outside of the commons' door.


Overall, Music City Hostel provides an excellent opportunity to meet new friends and experience the Nashville sights and sounds. This unique hostel is recommended to anyone with a love of travel!

Nice place, loud at times, clean, friendly staff!

Huge place, excellent security although a IH member I spoke to said most IH hostels have small security lockers and this one does not. My stuff wasn't bothered however. No chairs or cabinets to put your stuff on or to sit on. No wifi in rooms, but it worked well otherwise. Good system for cooking and washing dishes. Laundry service available. All in all a really good experience.


Beautiful place

The people there ara very kind, always happy to help. The place is quiet, and not far from downtown, 25 minutes by walk. If you love music, you can always find people just like you there. It is a beautiful place.


Seemed nice, but needs to figure out what a hostel is for.

Seems like a very nice place. My contact was not staying here. They do have a policy that you have to have a Credit Card or Passport to stay. I am a lifelong hosteler, however I was trying to help another young man on his first "adventure." He has been responsible enough not to get a credit card, so he was not allowed to stay. We offered alternate ID, or anything else that would suffice. They said it is for safety, but I guess I have never felt safer knowing the office has a credit card number on file. It is a disappointment as a lifelong hosteler to have someone put up a hostel shingle, and not believe in trying to get young people out traveling. That's what hosteling is about, making travel affordable. I applaud the kid for not going into debt, and being willing to offer anything he could as an alternate ID. Anyway, my review is of the reservation and check in policies. As for the reservation. They were very quick to email back. They were mostly very friendly in replies. They just are not helpful in trying to find a way for this kid to use the facility, and once I got the feeling they would rather not be bothered. Overall, if you can overcome their exclusion policy I think they would be ok. In the end, from the dealings I had with this hostel, if you are an older person it might be ok. If you are younger, or want to show support for someone that is more true to the spirit of hosteling, there are other places in Nashville.

the hostel is very clean and very comfortable, lively in the evening and very peaceful at night. the staff are very nice and very helpful. the hostel is located in a very pleasant area at walking distance from downtown and the park. it's just about the right place where to chill out and enjoy the weather. Top notch!


Had a fantastic time here -- Would highly recommend it.

I had an absolute ball here. Booked in for a week and stayed for two. Met some of the most amazing people ever. Ron, Tracey, and Hope are very helpful and really want to ensure that you have a great time while in Nashville. It is a very clean hostel with great cooking facilities. Would Highly Recommend This Hostel.


Clean, close to downtown, good people, warm. Overall very impressed.

I've stayed in many hostels over the last five months and this one would be one of the nicest yet. The staff are attentive and will always give you the time and help you need. They know the good spots in Nashville to visit (in which there are many) and there are always people around to join you in your adventures. The rooms are clean, beds are very comfortable, and the sheets are clean. Overall, the facilities are more than adequate. In conclusion, Nashville is a very charming, with plenty to do and the The Music City Hostel facilitated one of the best times of my trip.

Music City Hostel is after thirteen years of traveling the best place I have stayed. Ron and Tracey take you in as an extended member of the family and Hope ensures no one is left out. The trio work the crowd well and everyone can benefit from the relaxed and homey feel generated. The dorms are clean, as are the bathrooms. The beds very comfy and the whole place is really safe and accommodating. No one goes hungry, with communal meals on offer and Ron and Tracey's outings to various restaurants and shops. I highly recommend the place for anyone of any age. I arrived for a week and left after three! Best time ever -- well done guys.
