    Excellent place. Hosts Alex and Jenny are very accommodating. Proximy to downtown is easy with frequent bus service. Sleeping pods are private and comfortable and very quiet. Big rustic house with lots of atmosphere, feels like you're in the country. To accentuate that, they serve coffee and homemade bread daily. Highly recommended.

    The owners were very personable even though I could tell that they are very busy people, they took the time out to stop and have a genuine conversation. The employees were from all around the world and there was a feeling of family in the house. I utilized the dorm and also a private room for a couple days of my stay. The “base camp” dorm was comfortable as well as private. I’ll be back again next time I visit.

    Very convenient and flexible check in/out! I would have liked to be closer to downtown, but it was still close enough to get everywhere quickly.

    I really enjoyed my stay. Even overslept and they didn't charge me. It is centrally located so I could have walked to Riverwalk but was only an $8 uber. People staying and working there were very friendly and laid back.

    Base Camp is a place to be in Detroit! If you want to know the city better and make yourself like home, this is a place for you. You are offered a home made bread (sic!), fresh coffee and very comfortable amenities. Curtains in your bunk bed with light and outlets, comfortable couch zone, a lot of board games, nice garden and perfectly equipped kitchen. Plus Jenny and Alex are just amazing hosts, very knowledgeable and involved in the city matters and more like friends honestly:) Thank you!!

    Base Camp Detroit was perfect for my trip. I stayed in a cabin inside a shared room and everyone was very respectful. The staff was great - welcoming and accommodating. The atmosphere was very laid back and the staff was very upfront about the current renovations taking place which were not a bother at all. It is located in a quiet neighborhood just a few minutes bus ride from downtown. This was my first time in Detroit and Base Camp's location made a great central location to explore from.

    Probably the hostel with the best atmosphere I've stayed in in the US. Only drawback with this place is the location is quite poor as it is a bit of a walk to the nearest buses into town. Otherwise, the staff are really great and Maya is lovely! Would definitely stay at again.

    Awkwardly located with infrequent and unreliable public transport links. Hostel was still under work but was quite quaint.

    Compared to an Airbnb rental (at the same price), base camp has a ways to go.... However, if you're looking to meet new friends and diversify your trip/vacation, base camp may be worth considering. The house was older and had not been renovated much. I ran into spiders, crickets, flies, etc. As far as the atmosphere, it could have been better....only 2 staff said more than 'hi' during my 11day stay.😕
