    Great place, the staff and owners were very helpful and friendly. Rooms, beds, and washrooms were all clean. Place was a far walk from downtown Detroit, but to explore the city you're probably going to be using ride share or a car anyways and that's about 10 minutes. Stayed in the deluxe suite with private washroom.

    The hostel is new and remains under renovation. Still, the place is COZY and the guests/staff/volunteers/owners are incredibly welcoming. The hostel is small and there is always someone new to meet in the common areas. Highly recommend -- I see myself returning in the future. Downside is the location -- HOWEVER, there are multiple bus routes (only $2) and Uber is quick and about $7 to downtown :D BTW, The neighborhood is nice to walk around.

    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.

    They were very accommodating and worked with us to find arrangements for a friend who joined our party at the last minute.

    Staff and owners were all great individuals and very nice to talk to, my only complaint is that they tended to be cliquey and dominated the shared areas, and I believe I was not the only one to notice this. As someone with social anxiety, I found it difficult to make friends here. I know I’m weird and a drunk, lol but it is rare I leave a hostel without saying goodbye to anyone. If you prefer to be by yourself, this place has very cozy rooms and bunks, the best I have experienced at a hostel.

    Very upfront about the renovations, easy to access with codes provided. Was stopping through Detroit just for the night, everything was fine; however there was no heat or hot water (at least in my room), and only one outlet worked for the entire room. I understand renovations are happening, and none of these are complaints to be negative because I will book again when I have to stop through. The potential with what they’re doing there is great, and I’m excited to experience the final product.

    Very Good

    Hostel was fine: clean, secure, friendly and probably in the summer more enjoyable with its garden available. Interesting project to bring an old house back into use in a very run down area. Facilities re showers/toilets good Down side: distance from middle of town. Public transport (bus) available within approx 8/10 minute walk. Buses frequency approx every 30 mins. No regular taxis in this city, just uber and other similar. No cafes within walking distance of hostel, basic breakfast provided
