Good hotel being a 15 minute walk from the monorail. Any further downtown and the area is sketchy! We had stayed in hostels so this was a nice treat
Awesome hostel and brilliant location to get to the park. If you want somewhere reasonable price near the park then this is for you. Only word of advice, bug spray!! Lots of it!
After reading some of the reviews I was worried about stayin here but it's actually ok. Yep if you walk to blocks south you are in a really rough part of town but stay away and you are fine. I stayed on the 4th floor so didn't hear any street noise. I can see why it would be noisy further down the building. Only real complaint is the bunk beds. There's no ladders to climb to to the top bunk! You literally have to climb up the wall to get in the bed!
Very nice hostel and very helpful staff. Only negative comment is that if you are staying on the 3rd floor in a "6 bed dorm" it's not really as it appears. The whole floor is a giant dorm with dividing walls that don't go up to the ceiling or entrance doors. Probably about 20-25 people on one floor

A very nice hostel right near Hollywood boulevard. We had lots of trouble with inconsiderate room mates but that's not the hostels fault. Moved us to a different room which was much appreciated. The female receptionist was a bit miserable but the guy with the glasses was very helpful and extremely polite! Activities arranged were very good and reasonably priced. If you are looking for a party hostel at the weekends this is the place, if not sleep may be an issue for you!
Staff didn't enforce their own rules. They give you a list of all the things you arent allowed to do and then don't bother enforcing it. People from outside just wonder in all the time as the front door is open. Don't stay in rooms 13-14. You will not sleep! The windows are right next to the outside patio which is supposed to close at 11pm but never does. They said its quiet time after 11pm and no alcohol but there were people drinking and screaming until 3am both days we stayed.
Says dallas but its a 30 minutes bus ride to town. But it is in a very quiet safe neighbourhood. Staff are only there first thing in the morning so if there's any trouble it could be difficult to sort. Otherwise fine and great value
Could do with a new bed on one of the bunks plus the rooms are open to everyone so not the securist in the world. It's a bit of a trek to town and the area has a awkward feel to it but we had no problems. The staff are EXCELLENT and couldn't have been more helpful with maps and discount vouchers for the local area. The hosts is very homey and cosey. Stayed with some very chilled out people. Would recommend only if you don't mind lots of walking!
Charge you for wifi. Who does that? Clean basic hotel. If you are expecting more than a place to stay for the night than this is not for you
Perfect location for downtown Nashville The rules (a page like a teancy agreement!) aren't really enforced in the quiet areas at night. There were people running around at 4am in the quiet zones and the staff did nothing about it. The communal showers weren't very clean and the water pressure on the 4th floor is rubbish. More like a drip then a shower! Other than that this is one of the better hostels I've stayed in!
Reception staff are all very rude! Other than that this is a nice cheap spot out of Atlanta. The free bus takes you to the train station and you can get into town in half an hour!
Staff are rude, but location is good and free transport to to train link is really helpful
Some of the staff very good (Suzy and Banny) Some are very poor! Just come into your room and start chatting really loudly. Had a list of rules like a tenancy agreement and shift people around regularly! It says 6 bed on the ad but its actually 12 split into two rooms with a fake wall in between and only one bathroom! Oh and they were still building (which started at 8am) when we were there!
Good points Hostel is in excellent location for the beach. Couldn't get any closer if you tried. The roof is a brilliant place to go to chill out in the day and get ready for drinks in the evening. Some of the staff are really helpful (Suzy, Eastern European guy, security guard). Negative points The staff just walk in and out of rooms without letting you know what there doing and have mothers meetings in the room The rooms are not 6 bed but 12! They are still building at the hostel!
